How To Use Our Flower Essences
Internal Use—All of the flower, gem and environmental essences we sell are bottled at the stock level of dilution and each bottle has been individually hand potentized.
You can use our essences in different ways, but, first choose the appropriate essences. You can do that by pendulum analysis, kinesiology (muscle testing), intuitive selection, or by reading the essence descriptions and determining which ones feel right for you. Follow your intuition. It may also be helpful to have a therapist or friend work with you in the selection process. Read more about selecting essences here.
How to use them:
1) Make a dosage bottle: Fill a clean one ounce glass dropper bottle with pure spring or distilled water and add two drops of each selected essence. We recommend adding 10-20% brandy to preserve the clarity and stability of the dosage solution. If you have a sensitivity to alcohol you may may want to use a similar amount of vegetable glycerin as a substitute for the brandy.
The standard dosage is four drops, four times a day, but we urge individual testing to arrive at the correct dosage amount and frequency, especially with small children. Please note that the frequency, or the number of times that the essences are taken, rather than the amount that is taken, increases the strength of effect (note: 4 times is day is often enough and most effective).
2) Prepare a cup of water with your essences every day. Add two drops of each essence to a glass of water and take a sip four times a day.
3) You can also use the essences at their existing stock level of dilution. Drops may be taken directly from the stock bottle (2 drops at a time).
Take the essence(s) at least 3-4 weeks.
External Use—All of the Alaskan Essences can also be used externally by blending them with massage oils, lotions and creams, or as a special addition to your bath. They may also be broadcast into your environment by placing several drops in an indoor fountain, a humidifier, or by preparing a misting or spritzer bottle.
To make up a spritzer bottle, fill it with filtered or distilled water and add two drops of each chosen essence along with any essential oils you wish to use. You can also add a small amount of clear alcohol to act as a preservative.
Using the Essences with Animals—Dosage bottles can be prepared according to the directions given above, with these additional considerations. Animals are generally more responsive to vibrational essences than humans. Because of this, the dosage cycle for an animal will usually be of a shorter duration.
Drops from the dosage bottle may be added to the watering dish every time it is filled. For acute situations, or when the animal is unable to eat or drink regularly, give drops directly to the animal as often as necessary. For animals who are unable to take their essences orally, add essences to a spritzer bottle and spray around the animal. Read more about animals here.
