Vibrational Essences

This page is for information only. I do not sell essences. I do offer a course locally & by distance if you'd like to learn to make your own essences out of your local plants! Cost of the workshop is $45 Canadian. If you are local I need a minimum of 3 people.

Vibrational essences work in the same way that homeopathic remedies work. Vibrational essences are based on plants, gems or minerals. Each essence contains the vibration of the plants or other matter that it is made from and that vibration corresponds with particular emotional, physical and spiritual attributes.

Vibrational essences are a form of very subtle healing that work on energy centres of the human body (or animals) balancing and harmonising energy flow. They are effective in removing negative thought patterns, blocked energy, negative emotions and releasing past traumas. Essences are effective in supporting and assisting people to move forward in more positive ways eg, with increased courage, clarity or peace of mind.

Vibrational essences have subtle healing properties that restore balance on all levels of being: physical, emotional, mental & spiritual. They can be used to enhance personal development & are a powerful aid to transformation. They can help us to overcome old behavior problems & negative states of mind that may contribute to or cause disease, emotional imbalance & spiritual disharmony. Flower essences stimulate the body’s ability to heal by restoring balance to chakras & energy fields, releasing old thought patterns & emotions.

Because Vibrational Essences work on a vibrational & energetic level they work well in between reiki sessions.

To select remedies that are most useful to you at this time, read the descriptions about each essence & choose the ones that address key emotional, physical & psychological issues you are experiencing. Often intuition lead you to choose a particular essence. As many essences as you need can be combined in one formula.

Essences are safe for humans & pets, & have no taste, and can be used with while using other medications or remedies.





How to use your essences:

Flower essences are taken by adding about 5 drops to your drinking water several times a day until improvement is noticed. Essences may be used more often if you feel you need for more frequent doses, let your intuition guide you. Often clients feel the need to use their essence once an hour for the first day or two.

Essences can also be added to bath water, lotions, oils, shampoo or conditioner, in a water fountain, in an essential oil burner, etc.

Don't touch the dropper of your vibrational essence bottle with your hands or tongue, this changes the energetic qualities. Don't sit the bottle near anything electrical.

How I make essences:

I don't pick any plant parts to make my essences, I lean the plant over into a crystal bowl, keeping the plant's energy coming from the earth. The essences are then prepared homeopathically until a dosage bottle is obtained.
