Plant, Crystal, Star, Stone… Essences
Essences hold the pure vibration of plants or other forms of matter – their “essence”. Not only do many plants contain substances beneficial to our physical health, on another level they can also help and support our psyche. For years now flower and other essences have been becoming more and more popular and it is no long uncommon for hospitals to have Bach’s Rescue Remedy at hand. In fact every flower, tree, stone… has a message and can help us in some way and there are now thousands of essences on the market.
I started with Bach flower remedies and essential oils 30 years ago and stretched out my feelers from there. My suggestion is you see which firms use your own indigenous plants ‘grown close to home’ and use them first. There are certain plants of course which only grow in other corners of the earth* and as we are ‘all one’ we may need their help too. Use your gut feeling when choosing your brands. Please use them with care and don’t over dose yourself – children respond especially sensitively to them and whilst they can, in my experience, be an incredible help, they should be dosed with care as with anything else we injest.
Although I now find I can generally connect with plants etc simply by ‘being’ with them – and I am sure many young children have not lost this ability – various essences have been a profound support over the years and have helped me get to where I am now.
There are breathing patterns which you can adopt to connect with a plant and enhance its effect and asking for help also works – whether you believe it or not! If you say thank you afterwards or offer something as thanks it is even more effective. In my opinion essences are a helping aid in the process of getting back to nature and at some point, sooner or later, we may all learn to ‘just’ connect with the helpers, by meditating with my pictures you also make contact in a different way. Please try it!
May I suggest here that if you have a sensitive child, or are yourself becoming increasingly sensitive, please be aware of using homeopathic remedies, spagyrics etc. and even also flower essences especially when injesting them. They work on specific, alchemistic levels and I would try sitting a child next to a plant for a while first or letting it touch it (if it is not poisonous) before using these methods – contrary to popular belief these are potent medicines which should be used with sufficient knowledge and care. Try asking your child how it would ‘use’ the plant to get support – it may well surprise you! Do not laugh, learn from and encourage it (within reason). Sola dosis facit venenum.
I have two powerful essences one ‘Heart’ Essence and the other for Pain Release (it can also be used to help release old trauma from the body as in TRE by helping you to shake). Please contact me if you are interested.

Aura Soma products from England are also one of my favourites on a different level using herbs and gemstones as well as colours.
When it comes to essential oils I like Doterra and Young Living oils best, they are incredibly fine and when you smell them the information goes straight to the brain. I tend to use them olfactorily but you can use them in the bath or creams. Again don’t play with them! The only essential oil you can really use safely neat is Lavendar oil( brilliant eg for burns). Get a book, research and take it seriously and then you will profit from them immensely.
