How To Use Essences

Flower essences assist us to transform negative states into corresponding positive states, on an energetic level. They are normally taken orally, on or under the tongue. Once the drops of the essence are placed on or under the tongue, allow the essence to mix with the saliva in the mouth for a few moments before swallowing. Ensure when taking essences that the glass dropper does not touch the tongue or the essence may become contaminated. It is better to take essences at least ten minutes away from food. Flower and gem essences will not affect any other medicine or treatment you are taking as they work on a different vibrational level.
The standard method of taking essences is as follows:
- Place drops on or under the tongue
- Repeat 4 times per day - especially first thing in the morning and before bed. For those who are very sensitive start with twice a day.
- Continue for one month
For acute states, take every 30-60 minutes. Use your intuition to determine when the treatment is no longer needed.
An alternative method is to put 2-4 drops in a glass of water and sip at regular intervals throughout the day.While you are taking your essence/s, monitor your thoughts and feelings and make notes of any changes you may feel. After this time you may find that you need to change some of your original choices or that you need to continue with the same ones for longer - don’t be afraid to experiment for yourself! Working in this way over a period of 6 months or so you will find that there has been a subtle but definite shift in your response to the situations and events of your life.
Please note: If increased dosage is desired, it is better to increase the frequency of treatment rather than the number of drops. Drops could be placed under the tongue eight times per day, for instance. Increasing the number of drops will not improve the efficacy of the treatment.
* CHAKRA ESSENCES: 4 drops, 4 times per day
For best results take the Chakra Essences straight from the stock bottle sent, do not dilute or mix. Each of the Chakra Essences is a powerful combination of at least 5 different essences so it is recommended that you only take one of these combinations at a time. It is usually best to avoid using any of the other deeper acting combinations at the same time, although Bach Flower Remedies can be very supportive when used alongside the Chakra Essences.
* DIVINE HARMONY ESSENCES: 4 drops, 4 times per day
For best results take the Divine Harmony Essences straight from the stock bottle sent, do not dilute or mix. Each of the Divine Harmony Essences is a powerful combination of at least 5 different essences so it is recommended that you only take one of these combinations at a time. It is usually best to avoid using any of the other deeper acting combinations at the same time, although Bach Flower Remedies can be very supportive when used alongside the Divine Harmony Essences.
