Flower essences are a homeopathic remedy that have been used for years to help create mind-body-spirit balance.
Aspen (Populus tremula) is known as the “tree of courage”. Characterized by its trembling leaves, folklore believes it to be the tree that never rests. Aspen is a flower essence for individuals seized by fears of unknown origin, nervy and anxious, accompanied by sweating and trembling; and is particularly helpful for young children experiencing nightmares and night terrors. This Essence helps those who feel fears and worries of unknown origin. The fears or worries comes suddenly without any specific reason. A typical need for Aspen is on waking in fear from a bad dream, even if the dream itself is forgotten. Aspen helps us to find an inner peace, security and fearlessness; encourages a deep bravery bringing the ability to physically “stop shaking” & rest.
Unlike essential oils or herbal extracts that contain the physical substances extracted from plants, there is no physical part of the flower left in a flower essence. Instead they work on similar principles to Homeopathy, in which the life-force and vibrational signature of the plant is imprinted within a water-based matrix. This is achieved through sun-steeping the flowers in water for a period of time. The water is then collected, strained and potentised through dilution methods.
The earliest European recorded use of flower essences was by abbess Hildegard von Bingen in the twelfth century, who would place muslin sheets over flowers at night to absorb their dew, which would then be collected in the morning, rung out, and used to treat people with emotional imbalances. Flower essences work by the principle of resonance within the subtle human energy field, which impacts one’s physical and emotional health. In other words, flower essences are based on vibrational energetics, rather than biochemical, and stimulate the body’s natural capacity to bring itself back to homeostasis. All plants carry vibrational energy patterns, and it is said that flowers are the pinnacle of this energy.
It is proven that our mental responses to life events and predisposed conditions can cause physical illnesses within our bodies, creating further mental and spiritual distress. It is recommended to research the history and benefits of flower essences to further understand the amazing uses and how these can be a catalyst for much needed personal healing and growth at all levels of ourselves, mind-body-spirit.
Add 1-3 drops of the flower essence to a drink or directly to the mouth. It can also be added to bath water, applied directly to the hands, anointed onto self and candles for spiritual work.
This is a pure, unscented floral essence in a base of spring water & brandy.
