My Very Own Flower Essences

Lately I've been diverging from the traditional/academic uses of plants to delve into the energetic/esoteric uses of these (vibrational remedies, alchemy. gemmotherapy...) especially on an emotional and spiritual level. This is a whole new world for me with so many possibilities, and I find all this very exciting.

Along these lines I am starting to make my own flower & leaf essences and I also plan to have a small line of liquid smudges (but that's another story and a future project).

I currently have some Rosemary flower essence listed on my shop (with its uses); Borage should be following shortly...And more to come ;).

My flower and leaf essences are made in small batches, seasonally, with organically homegrown and ethically wildcrafted local herbs and plants, spring water and (grain free) brandy (as a preservative). I only harvest plants during waxing moon (between New Moon and Full Moon) when the energy is at its highest and choose the day depending on which planet rules the plant (Rosemary is ruled by the Sun so I prepared the essence on a Sunday).

I obtain the therapeutic uses directly from the plants' spirits themselves, as shamans have done for thousands of years. All my flower & leaf essences are blessed.

Feeling slightly off balance...

...But I know it's temporary and I always fall back on both my feet then keep going, moving forward...Always.
My first class didn't go quite the way I expected, even though I knew what I was doing and saying. An acquaintance of mine said I looked as ease and in my element but I had a student I wasn't prepared for.
This student was autistic and didn't show any emotion. I don't know whether she was interested in what I was saying, and even less about what she might have been thinking. She was just staring at me the whole time with inexpressive eyes and I felt like I had a wall in front of me. I managed to make her smile a couple times so I guess I must have reached her somehow, even just a little bit. I don't know if I'll see her again at the next class, that will be a surprise...
So I got a challenge for my first class. But I like challenges, that won't deter me. There will be a 2nd class as planned. Funny how life can play tricks on you: when you think you've figured out what you want, what works for you, how do to things and which way to go, then comes a spiritual storm out of nowhere which brings new insights and the direction you were taking suddenly changes...
I know what I'm saying is a bit esoteric here but the people who have gone though something similar will understand.
