Plants and humans share a symbiotic relationship. We breathe in oxygen created by plants, exhaling it as carbon dioxide. Plants breathe in our carbon dioxide to create more oxygen which they then exhale for our consumption. We cannot live without each other. Our very breath is a beautifully choreographed dance created by nature. It was ever thus.
As an herbalist, I'm constantly amazed by the power, resilience and beauty of the plants we live and work with. I can walk through someone's yard and tell at a glance what's going on with them just by observing the plants living on their land. I don't mean the plants in the garden. I'm talking about the "volunteers" - those plants which just "show up" to offer deep clues into the body, minds and spirits of the people whose land is their home.
As an aromatherapist I've witnessed first-hand the powerful affect an essential oil blend has on body, mind and spirit. The power of our sense of smell is extraordinary. It evokes long-forgotten memories and is the last sense to leave us.
As a flower essence practitioner, I know that plants will communicate with those willing to receive their messages and teachings. Flower essences address imbalances in the soul. These teachings are different than the lessons learned when taking a tea or a tincture. I often liken it to a different facet of the plant’s personality.
Herbs taken as nourishment will work on your physical body as much as your emotions. No one can deny the restorative experience of taking a break with a cup of herbal tea.
Essential oils - the deeply concentrated constituents of the plants - are extremely potent tools to help bring the body and emotions into balance. Essential oils lighten the mood, help the body to relax and the spirit to rejuvenate.
Flower essences, however, well - those teachings in my experience are much deeper, going directly into the psyche and spirit. Flower essences work energetically and do so quite quickly. Flower essences are the energetic imprint of the plant infused with an alchemical blend of sunshine and water. My flower essences are created with Herkimer Diamonds, the highest vibrational quartz crystals, for added potency. Some flower essences are created at specific times, or during specific events like the Summer Solstice, an Eclipse or in the case of our Mugwort flower essence, during a Blue Moon to marry the energy of the event with the energy of the flower essence.

1. Are essential oils safe?
Essential oils are safe if used properly. For topical use, always use a carrier oil. Never ingest essential oils. Please share any concerns you may have during the intake portion of your consult.
2. How long will my blend last?
Essential oils have a significant shelf life. Usually it’s the carrier which degrades before the oils. As a rule of thumb, most blends will start to lose their potency after 6 months. But you’ll be using your blend so often you’ll run out sooner than that!
3. Are essential oils safe for pregnant women, children or pets?
Great question! Some are, some most definitely are not! In the case of pregnancy, we recommend checking first with your medical practitioner. In the case of children, It depends greatly on the child’s age. If an adult is using a specific oil that is too strong for a child’s growing body, that oil should not be used in a diffuser in the child’s living space. You will be asked about your family situation and who else will come in contact with your blend during your session, so that we can ensure proper use. Cats are extremely sensitive to essential oils and should generally not be exposed. Dogs have a higher tolerance to certain oils. Please share any concerns you may have during the intake portion of your session
Flower Essence FAQs:

Flower essences are vibrational in nature. Because of how they are created, they contain very little plant matter. They are homeopathic in nature, meaning they are non-toxic and have no direct impact on the body’s biochemistry.
