Vibrational essences (commonly referred to as flower essences) use the vital force of plants and other substances to assist the body’s natural healing process. They are normally produced in a liquid form, sometimes in an ointment/crème form and are preserved with an alcohol-like substance such as brandy.
Vibrational essences are synthesized from the energy of many other substances other than flowers, which are the most renowned type. They may also come from:
- The stems, roots, bulbs and buds of flowers.
- The environment
- Light sources, such as the stars and moon
- Other healing energies, such as Reiki
What is the Difference Between Aromatherapy and Vibrational Essences?
Unlike the oils used in Aromatherapy, vibrational essences include only the vibrational properties of the substances that they derive from. They are also unscented and unflavoured unlike oils used in aromatherapy.
How Vibrational Essences Work
Vibrational essences create a shift in awareness within the individual by strengthening and balancing their subtle bodies. They focus on their surrounding energy bodies, as well as the individual cells and chakras of the physical body. When an essence is used, it sets up internally a vibration that corresponds to the healing being asked for. For example, the gem essence Rose Quartz may be used to assist someone searching for love to find a love of their higher self and the love that the universe has for them.
