If you would like to start taking a flower essence right away, you can buy your own blends online or at a metaphysical or heath food store. But in case you want to make your own here again are the steps:
Purchase several dropper bottles for each flower essence you would like to create, including a small glass bottle for the mother tincture. The bottles can often found at health food stores or online. Find a flower you feel called to (you can also look up their healing properties online or in the Flower Essence Repertory book). Let the petals and bud of the flower (without the stems) soak in a glass bowl with water in full sunlight for three to four hours. Pour the water and a half amount of brandy or apple cider vinegar into a small glass bottle or jar. This is called the mother tincture. Add a few drops from the mother tincture and place in a small glass bottle with a third brandy or vinegar and two-thirds water. This is the stock bottle. Several drops are then added from the stock to the final bottle called the dosage bottle, which again has a small amount of brandy or vinegar filled with water. Create your own label with a little intention on each bottle.

You may want to take this quiz found here to find out which flower essence is best for you. Whichever ones have the most checks is the flower for you. Remember, flower essences are a vibrational form of plant medicine, they work on energetic levels, so the effects are subtle yet powerful in their own way. I happen to believe energy precedes matter and thoughts become things so flower essences can be used as a tool for gentle transformation. I choose for transformation to come with gentleness and ease, and as quickly as I choose it to be. Transformation does not have to be long and drawn out, but can occur in a twinkling, along with manifesting our dreams and deepest desires. After taking the quiz you may share which essence you are going to take if you would like.
You might be able to make flower essences right from the flowers in your backyard or neighborhood. Hydrangea in the left is helpful to combine all the parts in your life into a more whole experience and improves concentration. Echinacea on the right helps to restore the soul’s identity and relationship to the Earth and humanity.
