How to make a flower essence.
Best first thing in the morning
Gather together…crystal glass, spring water, brandy
Go for a quiet walk and try to sense which plant is watching you. Or which plant pulls on your heart strings, and o
Settle in with the plant of choice, fill the jar with water, observe and exchange breathing
Ask: How can I help you?
Ask: How can you help people?
Ask if you can pick some flowers for medicine and make an offering.
Careful pick the flowers, using a leaf, stick or chop sticks, try not to touch the plant, flower or water
Cover the top of the water with the flowers
Place the flowers in a sunny spot for 3-4 hours
Sit will the flowers, the water and sun, blending your good heart with theirs
Take breaks and draw the plant you choose, or sing it a song, write it a story, any way you feel you can connect deeper with the plant
Return to the flowers, water and sun, again, infuse them with your good heart
Take a break, have a cup of tea, perhaps with other flowers or leaves from the plant you have chosen, if it is medicinal and tasty.
Return, and add 50% brandy or apple cider vinegar to bottle where essence will live
Fill the bottle with the just made essence
This bottle is your Mother Essence
Label and make notes in Plant Spirit Book
When you want to offer the flower essence to a friend, add four drops to a bottle of water with 1/5th brandy or apple cider vinegar. Take 4 drops 3-4 times a day for 28 days.
