“Across cultures, flowers universally represent the blossoming of the spirit. If you want to blossom into your greatest potential in a radically beautiful way, mimic a flower by taking its’ essence. “
Jenny Pao, Founder
“Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature. The first recognition of beauty was one of the most significant events in the evolution of human consciousness.”
– Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
Flower Essences are a form of energetic medicine made from blossoming wildflowers. These essences are generated from the buds of flowers, plants, or trees, which are then infused in water. Simply put, a flower essence is the positive energy of a flower, stored in water.
(But, wait!) Before we delve deeper into the details of Flower Essences, it’s is essential to clarify…
Research in the field of Psychoneuroimmunology is also demonstrating the power of the emotions in relationship to the immune system. It turns out, feeling good emotionally is paramount to good health. Candace B. Pert, American neuroscientist, molecular biologist and pharmacologist who discovered the opiate receptor (the cellular binding site for endorphins in the brain, said “When emotions are expressed…all systems are united and made whole. When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior.” In short, letting emotions surface allows for health and happiness.
In the 1930’s, Flower Essences gained modern prominence, largely due to the influence and dedication of the physician Dr. Edward Bach. He was a medical doctor with interests in homeopathy and later in his career. Bach devoted his time to creating access for people to correct their own ailments and emotional imbalances.
By 1936, Bach had established a supportive therapy known as Bach Remedies, which is still widely used. Bach Remedies produces unembellished original blends from Dr. Bach, and they are widely available, as was the doctor’s intent. Flower essence therapists around the world use the formulas, which are also available, to replicate or as jumping-off points for their own remedies. Nectar Essences incorporates the formulas in many of ourbreathe meandgemfleurremedies.
Flower Essences are made by leaving flowers out in the sun and/or moon, diluting their extracted essence in water (the result of this mixture is known as mother essence), and then preserving that essence in alcohol to make a mother tincture. This remedy is further diluted in spring water to make a solution that can be taken internally or topically.The essences then work on the electrical system of the body through the same energetic medians used by acupuncturists.
Nectar Essences makes the highest energetic medicine for self-healers combining various modalities: Medicinal Aromatherapy, Flower Essence Therapy and Crystal Healing. Nectar Essences’ Flower Essences are combinations of Bach Flower Essences and essences from Brazil (St. Germain Flower Essences) and Chile (AndeEssences).
