The Magic Behind Flower Essences
Just by being in their presence, flowers have the magical ability to reduce stress, lift our spirits, and bring us into the present moment. Yet beneath their charming (observable) qualities, there’s something more happening when you “stop to smell the flowers.” Similar to reiki, flower medicine is energy medicine that works on the subtle body to support emotional, psychological, and spiritual balance.

Flowers essences can be used to help decrease occurrences of dis-ease including anxiety, stress, fear, uncertainty, loneliness, and low self-esteem, to name a few.
Here's a quick overview of how flower medicine works:
The magic of these essences lies in the synergy between all of the flowers, acting as a whole, instead of individual flowers.To enjoy the healing properties of flower essences, try integrating them into your daily rituals.
How to work with flower essences:
- Take 3-4 drops on your tongue or in your favorite beverage before doing energy healing work like Reiki, massage, Tarot readings, etc.
- Apply them topically to your wrists, temples, chakras, acupressure points, or anywhere that feels like energy is stuck.
- Anoint sacred objects like crystals, malas, wands, or any intentional tool you like to use.
- Give them as a gratitude offering to the earth.
- Add a few drops into a bath, body oil, diffuser, or room spray.
You may also like to work with single flower essences based on their specific healing qualities.
