Flower essences are highly diluted infusions made from the flowering part of the plant and are meant to address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. All of the essences available here have been made using plants found while exploring our new home and property. As the seasons change and new plants show themselves and allow us to capture their spirit, new offerings will be added to the list.
All of our sun-infused flower essences are made using plants found wild or cultivated on our own property. They are preserved with a blend of certified organic, corn-based vodka and a locally-made lavender liqueur.
Each of these are packaged in a 2 dram (about 1/4 oz) glass vial with dropper top. These minis are a great way to explore a variety of essences.
The following are extremely simplified snapshots of the essences available. Look into the Flower Essence Society and other such references for more information.
