Plant Essence Sessions


Plant and gem essences are a powerful way to make changes in your life. Flower Essences are liquid, energetic remedies derived from living flowers. Basically what that means is that they move and shift your vibration. Flower essences contain information which shifts deep-seated beliefs and patterns that have often imprinted in childhood and are still “in charge” into adulthood. They work to bring not only an awareness but also to release patterns from the subconscious to the conscious mind so that healing can occur. Although essences have been used for centuries by many cultures across the world, more recently Dr Edward Bach reintroduced them.

There is no physical matter in flower essences, so if you are allergic to a specific type of flower, you will not have an issue with an essence made from it.


I provide flower essence guidance sessions one on one. We look at your life history and situation and I select which flower essences to start your journey. You take the essence formula every day for a full moon cycle. Each plant or gem essence provides a unique quality and as you take the essence you will find what does not resonate with it will come up to be released.


On my journey with taking essences I found initially a lot of sadness came up due to not having a father during my childhood. Then we built on this with another essence to give me the energy of fatherly protection. Everyone has travelled a unique path so the essence formula will be tailored to your needs. The process is ongoing and it is recommended to continue monthly with different formulas for at least 6 months to a year.

When a formula is made for you 3 drops are taken from a stock solution bottle which contains very small amounts of alcohol (three drops from a two ounce bottle which contains one third of alcohol, two thirds water and the essence). If you are completely allergic to alcohol then you will not be able to take essences. Seek advice from your doctor if you are allergic to alcohol.

The session does not need to be in person. We can meet over Zoom/Skype and I’ll post you the essence formula.

Essences FAQ
What are flower essences?

Flower essences are infusions of flowers in water, that are potentised and then stabilised in a solution of brandy and water. They contain no scent or perfume and should not be confused with essential oils. A flower essence is the vibrational imprint of a flower that has been transferred and stabilised in water. Flower essences can help us recognise, resolve, or release different conditioned ways of perceiving the world and can help us experience greater well-being and harmony in our lives.

What are vibrational essences?

Vibrational essences are can be made from the energy of many other substances other than flowers. They may also come from:

  • The stems, roots, bulbs and buds of flowers.
  • Minerals/gems
  • Animals
  • The environment
  • Light sources, such as the stars and moon
How long do I take flower essences for?

For optimum effects take a flower essence or formula for a minimum of one month. Sometimes it may be necessary to take them for longer. If you want to increase their effects, use them more often rather than more drops each time.

How do essences work?

Each essence holds unique qualities. As we use a flower essence, we begin to resonate in harmony with the qualities of the flower, and limitations and disharmonies begin to change. Some people feel an energetic shift when they take the essences. It may take a few days for anything unlike the positive effects to be felt. You may get uncomfortable feelings, emotions or even realisations about your current circumstances. They help us become conscious of things that are already happening with ourselves. As a result, sometimes we may have an awarenesses with which we are uncomfortable.

People react differently – remember each person may experience the effects differently so don’t compare yourself to someone else.

You are encouraged to journal whilst taking the essences to note your experiences and any changes.

Flower essences are absorbed through the mucus membranes in the mouth and enter directly into the bloodstream. The vibrational imprint of the essences is then moves through the bloodstream, influencing the endocrine system, the nervous system, the nadis and the chakras.

Can flower essences be used with other modalities?

Absolutely! flower essences can be used on their own or in conjunction with other modalities to enhance a wellbeing journey.  I have found them to add support to a breathwork journey. They have been used with great success by naturopathic doctors, massage therapists, psychologists, medical doctors, veterinarians, and other health care practitioners. The essences can be an extremely effective tool in the hands of an experienced practitioner to enhance awareness, facilitate healing and create harmony.

I cannot take alcohol, what should I do?

Most flower essence producers preserved a flower essence with approx 5 ml of alcohol in a stock essence bottle. If a personalised formula in a dosage bottle has been made up for you – this means 3-10 drops were taken from the stock bottle and placed in a dosage bottle. Vinegar or glycerin would be used as a preservative in the dosage bottle so there will only be trace amounts of alcohol. In this case or if you bought a flower essence from a producer you can also place drops in a cup of warm water and continually sip. The alcohol will evaporate.

If you have any concerns with taking trace amounts of alcohol then do not take flower essences.


Known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. All essences contain alcohol and may be unsuitable for persons receiving certain types of medication. It is  recommended that all persons who have been advised to avoid alcohol while receiving such medication should consult a pharmacist, Doctor, or qualified health professional before taking any essence. Persons receiving medication to counteract alcohol addiction should not use Bach Flower Essences in any form or dilution.

Special warnings and special precautions for use; keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or breast-feeding, consult a pharmacist, Doctor, or qualified health professional before use.

What Clients Are Saying

“I received flower essence formulas to take in between my breathwork sessions. They really helped me integrate guilt, which came up in my sessions. Ciara told me she put uplifting flowers into the formula and I felt so much better”

Kathy Lewis, Atlanta GA

“After a heavy hynpotherapy session dealing with my father issues, Ciara gave me three essence formulas. I couldn’t believe you could get flower essences that would help with trust in fathers. Baby Blue Eyes helped me gain trust in men again.”
