How to Use Flower Essences
1. Single Flower Essence-
Flower Essence can add to a glass of water. They are typically taken orally from a dropper bottle; the standard application is four drops under the tongue four times daily*. Some people like to take them right from the bottle. A more cost-effective way to use the flower essences is to put the drops in a one-ounce dropper bottle filled with filtered water, from which you can take the recommended dose. Counterintuitively, diluting a flower essence in water will not dilute its potency.
2. Making a Combination Remedy –
In general, up to six different types of flowers in a combination.
When making a flower essence, you begin by adding two drops of each of the selected Flower Remedies to a 30 ml/1 oz mixing bottle.
As a preservative (optional), you can add 1-2 teaspoons, apple cider vinegar or vegetable glycerin.
You then fill the bottle to the top with spring water. You take four drops (or two sprays) from this mixture four times a day until you feel better*.
*After starting the essences, and you wake up feeling unwell or out of sorts, you can add 1-2 drops of a remedy to a glass of water and take small sips throughout the day until you feel better.
1. Topical application –
Application of flower essences topically is lovely for people who avoid alcohol (used as a stabilizing agent in many flower essences), including children. The flower essences can be applied directly to the skin, either on the pulse points or specific acupressure points. A convenient way of topical application is to add the flower essences to a mister bottle filled with spring water. You can then spritz yourself and your environment several times a day.
2. Rescue Remedy –
Rescue Remedy can be taken as often as needed, either by adding four drops directly in your mouth under the tongue or adding 2-4 drops in a glass of water and sip it over several hours.
