Flower and gem essences are different from
essential oils. They have no scent and are
taken internally. They work on an emotional
or vibrational level which means that when
ingested, they unlock the stories of our past
to create present day healing. Similar to homeopathic medicine, flower essences become
more potent the more diluted.
There are hundreds of flower essences that are
effective in releasing deep feminine wounding.
Here are my top five:
One of my all-time favorites for strengthening worthiness and self-esteem. This flower
helps those who cannot recognize or utilize
their own power or those who avoid taking in
their value. The modern woman’s epidemic is
self-doubt, self-hatred, and self-judgment, so
this essence is a must-have.
This essence is for healing deep fears around
sexuality and releasing repressed sexual trauma. It can help when there are unconscious or
unresolved problems in the past concerning
close relationships. Its action works to pull
and release sexual trauma from the second
A powerful essence for healing deep betrayals and hurts associated with our mothers
or the way in which we were mothered. It
can facilitate the feelings of anger, sadness,
or abandonment that need to be experienced
This is a powerful essence for creating healthy
and appropriate boundaries, while feeling
safe. Most women over-give, avoid their intuition, and then feel depleted. Being able to
say “no” is actually the foundation to saying
“yes” to yourself.
This essence facilitates the relearning of the
strength and value of softness. This can be
helpful if a woman has toughened or hardened as way of protecting herself from harm.
Marshmallow helps release anger or rigidity
and opens the heart.
