Flower Essences for Solar Ingresses

Flower Essences for Solar Ingresses

by Tiffany Harelik, MA, RYT

Flower essences are energetic remedies that deliver a flower’s healing frequency to us. Each essence has an astrological correspondence and can help balance and enhance the natural qualities of each zodiac sign.
How to work with flower essences:
  • Place it directly on or beneath your tongue
  • Add it to water or another beverage or to food (not too hot)
  • Add it to your bath water, shampoo or conditioner
  • Add it to a spritzer and spray over your head/body
Herbal and floral medicine were created and given to us by Spirit, but do not replace Spirit. Please infuse your plant wisdom and green healing practices with surrender to your Higher Power’s plan. Replace any tendencies to control outcomes with trusting God. Spirit will help you intuitively know which plants and flowers to work with, and when. You can also work with astrology to engage best timing.
Note: Using herbs as teas, tinctures, or topicals inspire different properties than flower essences. 

When in doubt, Dr. Bach’s Rescue Remedy® formula is a good go to. Rescue Remedy was developed in the 1930’s and contains a blend of five flower essences: rock rose, impatiens, clematis, star of Bethlehem and cherry plum. Each flower essence is chosen for its special ability to bring calmness, clarity and strength to some people during challenging times.
