Ever heard of Rescue Remedy? This is a famous blend of Bach flower remedies sold in most pharmacies and used for shock, grief, anxiety, pre-exam nerves, and other emotional states.
Flower remedies, gem and crystal essences are a type of vibrational medicine, a safe and gentle system of healing designed to bring back balance.
Vibrational essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants, trees, crystals, and other natural sources, which interact with these subtle and evoke specific qualities within us and work by a principle of resonance. Essences are typically diluted in water and preserved with brandy or other type of alcohol. They are most effective when they match the core mental or emotional challenges faced by the client.
Essence therapy is commonly used for:
- Feelings of being stuck or stagnation
- Fears, pessimism and phobias
- Emotional issues
- Feelings of despair
- Grief and shock
- Feeling out of control
- Lack of direction and indecision
- Breaking emotional patterns
- Difficulty sleeping
Essences are often described as ‘vitamins for the soul’. They do not create euphoria, nor banish pain and conflict. They work by stimulating awareness of our conflicts and challenges, and strengthening our ability to heal and work through the obstacles to our health and growth. They also do not work biochemically (like pain relief for a headache would), but emotional stress may be alleviated, which in turn may relieve the muscular tension which might be causing the headache.
Essences work on an emotional rather than physical level and may help people who suffer from physical illness by addressing the emotional responses to the illness, and by working with the underlying conflicts and tensions that may have contributed to the onset of the illness. They are safe for pets, children and can be used alongside medication. We make these up for patients if they are interested in essence therapy.
