Why “Organic” Doesn’t Matter With Flower Essences

A new question surfaced today, having to do with whether or not the flowers from which the essences are made are organic or not. My short answer is, “It doesn’t matter!”

So before anyone gets upset about that, let me explain why. (And yes, I am a strong advocate of organic, green, sustainable living!)

My answer has to do with how flower essences are made. To understand this process completely, let me walk you through the process.

  • Permission is requested from a specific flower whether or not an essence may be made from it. If permission is granted, it means that the blossom will be plucked from the stalk. So the plant is sacrificing something. It’s best to ask permission before doing that.
  • Once permission is granted, the blossom is carefully removed from the plant without touching it with one’s own hand or any body part. Usually this is done using a stainless steel or wooden utensil.
  • The blossom is placed into a glass bowl of clear spring water, where it is infused by the sunlight in the early morning hours. This transfer process usually takes from 2-3 hours.
  • When the transfer of the energetic pattern from the blossom is complete, the flower is removed completely from the bowl of water, again using a stainless steel or wooden utensil. There is NO actual plant part remaining in the water.
  • The water now contains the vibrational essence of that flower.
  • The water is poured into an amber glass container for safekeeping, usually with a preservative (brandy or white vinegar.) This water is called the “mother essence” from which dosage bottles are prepared.

Given that there are NO actual plant parts in a flower essence, and given that even if a pesticide had been used on the plant during its growing cycle, no pesticide gets inside the plant’s DNA or its electrical pattern ~ and THIS (the flower’s electrical pattern) is the only thing that gets transferred. Not one shred of its chemical or physical properties. Only the electrical pattern.

(You do know that water conducts electricity, don’t you? That is the scientific principle behind why and how flower essences work. Remember that when you take your flower remedies! The plant patterns are helping you remember your own ~ or helping you to create new ones.)

As a point of interest, however, you may like to know that of my three main suppliers, most of the flowers are grown either in a biodynamic garden, or wildcrafted.

For instance, my newest flower essences were respectfully harvested from the wild natural meadows and rocks of the Italian Alps. You cannot GET more natural than that!

I hope that this answers the question about whether there were pesticides used in any of the flowers from which essences were made ~ as well as to offer greater understanding about what flower essences actually ARE.

    Hi, just visiting from Tom Volkar’s. A fascinating blog, and it’s good to know how these flower essences are created. We have used essential oils before — though they weren’t necessarily from flowers. Are they similar, if not the same?


    By the way, there’s a plugin called “What Would Seth Godin Do?” that can display specific messages to new or returning visitors to your site. And also, it doesn’t appear obvious that we can buy these essences from you — I’d paste “buy” links all over the place! (well, not in an untasteful way….)

    I’m visiting from Tom Volkar’s blog, too. I’m familiar with flower essences, but had no idea until now how they were created. Great post.

    I love the idea of asking the plant for permission to take the flower. I’m convinced if that level of respect for all things could flourish, we would all be kinder to each other and everything else.

    Hi Nancy,

    Your blog is beautiful. I would have never even thought about flowers having electrical patterns. Fascinating!

    I just responded to your post on my blog about your Twitter issue. Check it out when you get a chance. I hope you can resolve it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    HI Christine,

    Thanks for visiting! Also appreciate your support on the twitter issue; it’s puzzling when something doesn’t work like you think it should.

    If you would like more information about how (and why) flower essences work, please also visit my FAQ/New Here? page ~ it’s chock full of useful information.

    @Ari, that’s a great question about the difference between essential oils and flower essences. Because that one’s a FAQ, I posted a series of information about that on my FAQ/New Here? page. Hope you’ll visit that and tell me if I did a good enough job explaining that!

    Also thanks for the tip about the plugin; sounds like it’s very useful.

    @ Andrea, hope you have a better idea of how important flowers are to our world — and not just for their fragrance or beauty.

    @ Clem, yes these concepts are certainly not taught in school! That’s one reason I decided to put so much information here. Nobody knows about all these wonderful flower essences, and how they can help in so many different situations, for both people and animals,.

    @ Susan, yes flower essence work is completely respectful in every regard. That’s one of the reasons I love it so much. And I agree, what a different world this would be if we would (as Machaelle Small Wright so wonderfully put it in her book) Behave As If The God In All Things Matters.

    Glad you all visited, and thanks for the great questions.
