Gem and flower essences offer a safe, effective, inexpensive and portable energy medicine that is both gentle and profound.
Essences are infusions of gems or flowers in water. Each plant and mineral species embodies a distinct vibrational pattern that steeps into the water with the light of the sun or moon. (think sun tea). The gem or flower is removed from the water and brandy is added to preserve the memory of its resonant field.
Because essences work on an energetic, vibrational level, they are not associated with any adverse side effects, they are non-toxic and there are no contraindications to use essences alongside any other medicinal. Essences contain no scent and do not mimic essential oils or herbal tinctures – which are otherwise physical in nature.

How essences work
Since recorded history, healers have utilized gemstones, metals, plant elixirs and sound vibration to direct the subtle forces of Nature. Indigenous populations have used flower and gem essences as curatives for hundreds of years in India, China, Australia and Europe.
Essences offer us the energetic imprints of the life force of plants and gems, which interact with the subtle bodies of the human system and evoke specific qualities within us. While essences may promote physical healing, their power resides in the awakening of our mental, emotional and spiritual harmony. Essences help us access and process less conscious patterns so that we may clarify and integrate our intentions, release what no longer serves, and manifest our highest aspirations.
Gemstones and crystals possess perfect symmetry and balance. Gem essences are encoded with consciousness realized at the geologic/universal level. Just as the rocks and soil of this planet provide structure and stability for the growth of the plant kingdom, gem elixirs stabilize and restructure our energy systems so that our physical bodies can maintain their balance as the consciousness within us grows and expands.
Plants and their flowers act as beacons to heaven and bring spiritual consciousness to the earth. The expanded awareness that flower essences evoke, enable us to approach wholeness within ourselves and recognize that we are divinely connected to the entirety of the natural world. Flower essences catalyze evolution, bring clarity, stimulate insight, awaken dormant qualities, stimulate the release of blockages, balance emotions, help us through transition and nurture us in times of change.
The environment, through the elements of air, earth, fire, and water, supplies vital nourishment for all living things. Essences made from the environment provide the potent qualities of energy we need to create and sustain change at the core level of our beings (Alaskan Essences, 2010).
