But how many of you actually know what they are?
The name, Flower Essence, to me conjures up the image of trying to capture the gently wafting scent of a flower. Like a genie in a bottle. But, in fact, essences have no scent at all. Flower essences are basically infusions of certain flowers in water that are stabilized in a solution of brandy and water. These are very dilluted preparations and should not be confused with herbal tinctures or essential oils.
While they can be used for certain physical ailments, these products are mainly used for emotional healing. Stress, anxiety, trauma, sadness, and fear are all great reasons to try one. There's a lot great products out there! Which brings me....to the review!
I happened to throw the "Relaxation" formula, comprised mainly of Evening Primrose, into my bag before I headed off to the East West Seminar led by Michael Tierra. It's an intense week of clinical study, classes, and personal growth. Between the traveling and the intense clinical work, I was glad to have it! Several attending practitioners needed to take a break at some point during the seminar. But I was able to fully participate without my nerves getting frazzled. I even dispensed some to a few people during the seminar, and the feedback was very positive.
In addition to the Relaxation formula, there are many others. If you need a little extra boost to resolve an emotional issue or help during a stressful time of life, give them a try. We are coming up on some big changes here (more on that later!), and I know I'm glad to have this tool in my kit!
