Today I’m going to demonstrate how you can easily create a homeopathic preparation using flowers. These preparations are called flower remedies or flower essences. They are solutions of water which contain an energetic imprint of a flower.
Flower essences are used to balance such emotional states such as anger, worry, fear or sadness. The action of the essence will depend upon the type of flower used. When you make a new essence you will have do some research to find out what kind of action the essence creates.
Water Is Sacred
Water is an amazing sacred substance. Without water, life as we know it could not exist.
The water molecule is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Because of the way the hydrogens attach to the oxygen atom, at an angle of 104.45°, water is polarized. It is more negatively charged at the oxygen end and more positively charged at the hydrogen end. Because of this polarity water molecules tend to stick to each other and this is the reason for many of water’s very unusual properties.
A Water Molecule – H2O
Some Unusual Properties
- Water is formed from two gases yet is a liquid at normal temperatures and pressures.
- Water doesn’t contract when it freezes. It expands.
- Water has a high surface tension. This allows trees to draw water from the ground and transport it sometimes hundreds of feet to the uppermost branches.
- Water is the closest thing we have to a universal solvent.
- And one of the most intriguing, water appears to have a memory.
Water Has A Memory
In the 1980’s experiments by French immunologist Dr. Jacques Benveniste showed that water has a capacity for memory.
Dr. Benveniste was working with solutions of an active substance and he found found that even when they were highly diluted to the point where not a single molecule of the original substance was present he still still observed an effect from the water solution.
He even found that when water was exposed to the sound signature of a chemical the water alone could create the same effect as the chemical substance.
The results of his experiments upset a number of significant players:
- an entrenched orthodox scientific community that viewed his work as heretical
- and powerful vested business interests
So a virtual witch hunt was organized to squash him and discredit his work. Since then numerous other scientific studies have verified water’s capacity for memory, most recently, at the Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart in Germany:
Homeopathy And Flower Essences
The fact that water has memory would explain how the highly diluted solutions of homeopathy work.
Flower essences are a form of homeopathic preparation using flowers. They were first used by the English physician Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930’s.

To make a flower essence you will need:
- 2 – 2 oz. (50 ml) dropper bottles
- a clean wide mouthed clear glass jar
- 40% brandy
- spring water
Wait until you have a perfectly sunny day to make your flower essence. I would suggest you collect only edible organic flowers from your garden. Use the scissors to snip the flower heads letting them fall into your glass jar containing the spring water. Do not touch them. Set the jar in the full sunshine for 3-5 hours. Choose a place where dust will not be blown onto the water surface.
Now fill one of the dropper bottles half full with your water solution that has been sitting in the sun. Top the dropper bottle up using brandy. Seal this dropper bottle, shake it vigorously and label it. It is your mother tincture.
Now to use your new tincture get out the second dropper bottle. Put 2 drops (only) from the mother tincture into the new dropper bottle. Add a small quantity of brandy and then fill it to the top with spring water. If I am preparing this for a child I omit adding the brandy. Seal this bottle. Label it and shake it vigorously. Squirt 2-3 drops from this solution onto your tongue a few times a day or as needed.
That’s it. Watch the video.
