Plant essences (also known as flower remedies) are safe and gentle forms of natural healing.
The vibrational imprint of the plant is extracted in water, which is then further diluted. Some people confuse them with essential oils which are a physical extract, whereas plant essences are a subtle energy “extract.” Plant essences and essential oils are very complimentary to each other in healing work.
Like us, each plant has its own vibration and unique qualities and character. Plant essences help us tap into that energetic character to help with our own emotional support. For example, the native tree Kawa Kawa is used in traditional medicine as an antiseptic. It grows under the canopy but will reach towards the light at the edge of forests. So looking at this picture of the plant energetically, we see this plant’s ability to help ward off negativity and help us move emotionally from darkness to a lighter mood or sense of being.
To use them add a couple of drops of the plant essence to water and sip. In an emergency you can put a couple of drops on your tongue. You can also anoint chakra and pulse points with a drop of the essence. Many people use them to help bring extra focus to meditation and yoga.
At Archeus you can purchase single plant essences, blended elixirs or curated sets.
