every vegetable you can imagine offers some beneficial nutrients
that support the human body. The same is true of herbs.
Yet what you get from broccoli is different from what you
get by eating a carrot. Both are beneficial. Both are vegetables.
Yet they are each unique and offer different forms of support
for human health.
oils used in Aromatherapy also come from plants. And each
one, again, offers an entirely unique benefit to the human
body. Peppermint helps with nausea and stomach upset. Helichrysum
helps to eliminate pain.
is another form of support offered to humans by the plant
kingdom. That support is energetic in nature and comes from
the flower. And just like broccoli provides different "necessary
ingredients" than carrots, each flower offers a different
vibration to assist.
all the support available from plants, only flower essences
provide assistance on all levels of our being - physical,
mental, emotional, and spiritual.
are vast differences in the nutrition available from a carrot.
If it is fresh and organic, it is scientifically proven
to have higher levels of "the good stuff" than
one that is frozen and grown in nutrient depleted soil and
was inundated with chemicals.

factors that determine the quality and potency of essential
oils and flower essences.

Sunlight, heat, and air can destroy the delicate nature
of an aromatherapy oil.
produce doesn't say "organic," then it isn't.
If an essential oil doesn't say that it is therapeutic quality,
then it probably isn't either.
we move on to the more mysterious energy-based - and in
my opinion most powerful - form of support offered by the
plants - the flower essence.
can cut a few flower blooms and place them in a bowl of
water, set it in the sun, and call it a flower essence.

when creating flower essences.
the growing conditions are very important. So is the location.
I've made a flower essence from the same species of daisy
in two separate locations - on the north shore of Lake Ontario
and in the high desert in the American Southwest. Both were
made at the peak of bloom in the same sacred way. I even
used the very same bowl. Yet the resulting essences are
vastly different in vibration and even their primary purpose
(or benefit) is different.
date and time the essence is made affects the result just
like the date, time, and location of your birth affects
who you are.
20% of the overall result is based on the consciousness
level of the person who makes the essence. (I actually thought
this percentage would be higher). Read Power

between the person making the essence and the Divine Presence
or Spirit of the plant - known by many names including Flower

a truly powerful (almost miraculous) flower essence and
one that has much less power or benefit for the end user.
