Five flower formula herbal supplement dropper by Flower Essence
What are flower essences?
Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions, made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930's, although new remedies from other plant species are now available.
This later became the 5 Flower formulation of: Cherry Plum to becalm, Clematis to revive, Impatiens to relax, Rock Rose to give strength and courage, and Star of Bethlehem to rebalance. It can be regarded as a single remedy and added with others to make individual dosage combination remedies.
Positive qualities: Calmness and stability in any emergency or time of stress.
Patterns of imbalance:Panic, disorientation, loss of consciousness; acute trauma or pain.
How do I use flower essences ?
They are typically taken orally from a dropper bottle; the standard dosage is four drops four times daily. You can take the drops directly from stock bottles available in stores; mix them in a glass of water; or make a dosage bottle by mixing several drops with water and brandy (typically 1/4 ounce) in a one ounce dropper bottle. When mixing in a dosage bottle or glass of water, take two drops from each essence selected. There are many others ways of using them, such as in misting sprayers, in a cream base, or in baths.
