Flower essences are a homeopathic remedy that have been used for years to help create mind-body-spirit balance.
The Crab Apple is a member of the Rose family, which includes other magical British ogham trees, such as Rowan, Hawthorn and Blackthorn, apples also symbolize rebirth.
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.
Crab apple blossom is used to help us see ourselves as we truly are; the beauty that truly blooms above the sour apples. These blossoms have been wildcrafted and solar infused in my personal backyard; made in small batches only after Beltane yearly, not to be created again until the following Spring.
Traditionally used to diminish feelings of self disgust, being unclean and unworthy. For when we have a hard time looking in the mirror with unrealistic criticism, this is an excellent flower to use for body dysmorphia and other self love and acceptance work.
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.
Add 3-5 drops of the flower essences 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 and brandy.
