Flower Essence FAQ’s

Flower essences are made by imprinting the positive energy of flowers into water and are a very natural way to help you balance your emotions.

They do not contain any part of the flower and have no smell.

Essences are usually preserved by alcohol, traditionally brandy but modern producers use their own preference of high-quality alcohol. I use vodka.

Essences can be created with the energy of flowers, fungi, fallen leaves, moss,  gems, sound, colour, stars, special occasions, pristine environments, the channelled energy of animals and birds (no live beings are used or harmed in any way), angels, gods & goddesses, elements, to name but a few.  So you may see the terms Gem Essence, Sound Essence, Environmental Essence explaining the way in which the essence was made.

‘Vibrational’ is a term that can be used for any type of essence and refers to the fact that energy vibrates.

An essence reminds the body of its inherent state of harmony.  Often this leads to the release of negative energy in the form of unprocessed emotions or memories that were stored away because they weren’t fully processed at the time. This release may come as an ‘Aha’ moment or brief memory, which should be acknowledged and let go.

Your body will only ever release what you can process.

I highly recommend using a journal to help you gain the most benefit from using essences. You will develop increased self awareness and clarity on changes you wish to make.

Apple cider vinegar or glycerine can be used as preservatives, though this will reduce the shelf-life of the bottle to approximately 6 weeks.

Alternatively, the bottle can be made without any preserver and kept in the fridge with a shorter shelf life.

If the liquid looks cloudy or has floating matter, it is best disposed of.

* The New Light range contains a selection of ready blended essences to help with a variety of emotional issues. I’d recommend only using one combination essence at a time.
* If you don’t see a combination that suits your needs, you can certainly use more than one essence at a time. I’d recommend 3 maximum to enable you to gain the most from each essence.

Drops under the tongue – tip your head back and squeeze drops under your tongue while holding the pipette away from your mouth.

Drops in any beverage.

Drops in a bottle of water to be sipped through the day.

If you touch the pipette with your fingers or mouth, disinfect it with spirit alcohol or boiling water before it is returned to the bottle. Germs can cause the essence to spoil which can result in cloudiness or floating matter. If this occurs, the bottle should be disposed of.

Flower essences have no known contraindications. However, it is best to seek advice from your health care specialist prior to using any alternative natural products.

You will be asked about health conditions, prescription medicines and any other supplements during your consultation.

Please email me with any queries you have about using flower essences whilst taking prescription medication.

A 10ml bottle purchased from the New Light shop will last 4-6 weeks if used at the recommended dose of 2 drops (not pipettes) twice a day.
Each person’s situation and life story is unique.
* You may feel that you have resolved the issue after one bottle.
* After looking at the start and finish score sheets you may feel that you would like to work for a longer time on your issue.
* Your answers to the journaling prompts may indicate that you would like to work on another area of your emotional landscape with different essence.

Essential You Session FAQ’s

You will be invited to share your reason for booking the session and a little about your life in relation to the issues you are facing. I will talk you through a short meditation to help slow your thoughts and from there we will explore the emotional landscape surrounding the problem. To help me choose the appropriate essences for your blend, I may ask you to describe the colours, shape or movements associated with the feelings that you describe.

You will receive your essence blend by post and journal prompts by email.

The 30ml bottle generally lasts 4-6 weeks if you use 1-5 drops (not pipettes) twice a day.

Some days you may find that you are not inclined to take your blend, which is Ok. Your body is creating space to make its own energetic adjustments. Treat yourself kindly and with trust.

You may have little ‘Aha’ moments, memories of events or conversations arise. Acknowledge them and let them go. It may help to imagine blowing them into a balloon and letting them float away.

You may feel energetic shifts within your body.

An old area of discomfort may be felt. This is your body’s way of inviting you to consciously acknowledge the negative energy stored in this area so that it can be released. In doing this, you may understand a repeated pattern of emotion that your body has stored to protect you.

Follow your journal prompts to help you develop your self-awareness. Be curious of your feelings, thoughts and reactions. Over time you will see patterns and realise how to create change. Your feelings about your original problem may fade or change. Read back over the notes in your journal at the end of each week.

Complete the start and finish score sheets (that will be emailed with your journal prompts) to enlighten you on the changes that your blend has helped you create.

Each person’s situation and life story is unique. You may resolve your problem with one blend of essences. You may find that you wish to heal past experiences gently over a series of sessions. You may have a specific goal to work towards that requires several steps.

There is no time frame to re-booking. I invite you to listen to your own intuition.
