Flower essences work in the same way that crystals do, their unique vibrational energies work with our own to bring about balance & harmony. Traditionally essences are made by immersing flowers in spring water & leaving them in direct sunlight for up to a day, when mixed with equal parts of brandy it creates an infusion called the “mother tincture.”
