One of the most well known sets of essences are the Bach Flower Remedies. . . ever heard of them? They were created by a man called Edward Bach back in the 1930s. Bach was very interested in homeopathy and worked on the premise that by dealing with a particular mental state or emotion, the physical symptoms would begin to alleviate. He created 38 different remedies all aimed at different conditions, and he also created Rescue Remedy which is by far the most well known. Rescue Remedy is great to take in those moments of extreme panic, fear, and distress. If you haven't tried it before, go get yourself a bottle now and see how great it is at helping you become calm when you're stressed or anxious. You can get hold of Bach remedies in a lot of health shops including Holland and Barrett. If you can, it's best to work with a trained practitioner who can help you find the most appropriate essences for what you're dealing with.
There are lots of different types of essences available now ranging from flower remedies, to gem elixirs, and they're all aimed helping us deal with life. Some with every day situations, some deeper issues, and others on a much more spiritual level.
One company that produces essences are Crystal Herbs. They not only produce sets of Bach Flower Remedies, but they also do combination treatments too - i. e.inner calm, relaxation, sleep, trusting life, etc. I love those essences and can always find something that helps me deal with emotions that are bringing me down. For instance, when I'm trying to concentrate I use their “Clarity" essence which really helps me focus.
Some of most effective essences I've ever come across are produced by David Ashworth (who's a specialist in vibrational essences and energy). His essences are really great for shifting those blocks that are holding us back and help to tackle the whole issue of being stuck not just the emotions that result from the block. They're very much focused on spiritual development and evolution and bring about great shifts in consciousness.
I'm not sure where I'd be without essences now. Nature has so many brilliant ways of helping us deal with life doesn't she!
