Happy Spring! The arrival of spring brings us increasingly warmer and brighter days and a promise of summer. Spring is a perfect time to plant new seeds (both figuratively and literally), start new projects, and take action! Spring also brings with it a beautiful natural landscape of flowers. In this blog post we will be exploring flower essences- what are they, how to connect with and utilize the power of flowers in your body, hair, and skin care products, and additional resources for making and purchasing flower essences.
“Food nourishes the body, but flowers heal the soul. ” -old proverb
Flower essences are made from a flowering plant that are used therapeutically to benefit mood and emotional wellbeing. Flower essences are very safe and can be used by children, elderly and animals. Every flower has a different healing property. Flower essences affect us in very subtle and gentle ways by working on an energetic and vibrational level. The energy of the healing property of the flower that is being used (for example- calmness) is amplified while opposing energy (worry or fear) is lessened. Sometimes flower essences work immediately and other times they may take days or weeks as they slowly work with your energy.
Flower Essences for Body, Hair and Skin
Flower essences are a great addition to add into your body, hair and skin care products. Here are some flowers that are great to use in body, hair and skin care products:
