Your custom blend of essences comes in the form of a solution of 70% of water, 30% of brandy (the chosen preservative) and drops of the chosen essences. This comprises the content of your custom blend solution.
This solution can be ingested by dropping 4 drops in your mouth, or under the tongue, at least 4 times a day, avoiding direct contact of the dropper with the mouth, to grant the higiene and preserve the freshness of the solution. Alternatively, you can also put the drops in a glass with a little water (or in your tea) and take them in this diluted form.
Four drops, four times a day, is the traditional recommendation for using Flower Essences since the time of Dr Edward Bach who, in the 1930’s, created this unique form of preparation.
It is fine to take them more frequently, so feel free to follow your intuition.
Flower Essences are safe, they can be used on a long term and can be taken quite frequently
These delicate infusions contain information, and yet no physical substance, so you can feel free to follow your intuitive feelings around how often you choose to ingest them.
Being mostly life force information (diluted in water and brandy), they do not interfere with other treatments and can be used by children, by women during pregnancy and by people going through emergency situations and / or intensive physical treatments.
You may feel moved to take your essences up to six, seven or more times a day. And, on certain occasions, with a specific purpose, even every 15 minutes.
Frequency, not quantity, is what makes the difference
There is no need to take more than four drops each time, as this will not change your exposure to the information. The repeated use, however, will encourage a more dynamic process.
Alternatively, you may choose to add the same 4 drops to a little water or tea, at room temperature or hot. It is your choice, and the essences will work either way.
It is fine to carry your essences in your purse or pack, but for the sake of conservation of this diluted solution, avoid lengthy exposure to excessive heat.
Remember to always take them before going to sleep and when waking up.
It is good to create certain habits and a regular rhythm when using your Flower Essences.
Taking them before going to sleep and when waking up is one of the best practices. These are considered important “threshold” moments, when multiple dimensions of our beings are “accessible” or receptive to a greater resonance with the essences.
Listen to feelings, dreams, sensations and to what happens in your life
Create a journal, or use one you already have, to make notes on your experience throughout the weeks you will be taking your essences. Notice subtle or less subtle changes, and try to register them, as this, and other deepening practices, do help you to incorporate the changes enhanced by flower essences. All of this is important to your growing awareness and deeper healing of patterns and issues and is worthy material for your follow up Mentoring Sessions.
After your Mentoring Session, you received your essence combination
After each one of your Mentoring sessions, you will receive three brown dropper bottles, already prepared, containing the same combination formula. These are just for you, and they are an integral part of your Mentoring process.
With three bottles of the same combination formula, you have a generous supply that is expected to last a number of weeks: you have enough to be taking your essences several times a day, every day, for at least 5 to 6 weeks, follow the basic guidelines, or, for around 30 days, if you find yourself wanting to take them very frequently.
The three bottles contain the exact same combination.
You may start taking from one of your bottles, keeping the other ones as replacement bottles. Or, you can place one of your bottles by your bedside, carry another one in your purse or pack, and place the third one in a convenient location so you may remember to take them frequently.
Feel free to choose whatever way suits you best.
You have also ordered a Spray bottle, for external use
Your personal blue spray bottle has flower essences and a blend of pure essential oils, specially selected to add their therapeutic qualities when in combination with the essences chosen.
You may use your spray twice a day or more often.
Mist lightly over your head and allow it to shower over your energy field.
Can it get worse before it gets better? Is this part of the process?
Take note of your feelings and emotions. You may become more aware of some issues, as if they have intensified after you first begin to use a formula. This may happen or not, and if it does, it can be part of what we call an awareness crisis. As you process the issues, with the help of journaling, meditation and other practices, and persevere in taking your essences, it is very likely that you will gradually feel the movement towards shifts and desired changes.
Duration of a cycle with one same flower essence formula
The combination of essences chosen during a consultation is designed to be used for a period of around 8 weeks, but this will vary depending on how quickly you go through them, what themes you are working on and the overall journey you are in.
If you feel inclined to take them more frequently and one set of bottles has been used over a short period of time, you may request more bottles of the same formula to enjoy the deepening of the effects.
After two months or more, you will benefit from having another consultation and a new fresh combination of essences, to support your movement towards greater alignment and vibrancy!
