PSYCHOTHERAPY IN THE BOTTLE
The Super Power of a Delicate Flower
Flower essences are liquid extracts used to address profound issues of emotional well-being, soul development and mind-body health. They are part of a subtle energy medicine, which includes homeopathy, acupuncture, color therapy, therapeutic touch and similar modalities.
Similar to homeopathic remedies, flower essences are vibrational in nature and are a primary treatment for traditional Chinese medicine known as 'Shen' or 'Spirit'. Each flower has a specific frequency and holds information within that can help us realize our true nature and help us shift out of self-limiting, self-destructive patterns and behaviors, supporting our emotional attitudes and perceptions. They provide a language that help us understand our inner world and the ways we respond to life and life’s situations.
At Maitri Verde we offer a selection of individual flower essences, healing formulas and private Maitri Healing Program, where Anna creates a tailor-made flower essence based on your life-story and goals.

Flower essences allow us to see into the soul of things—into ourselves, our world, and all living beings.
~ Lila Devi
Flower essences are prepared from a sun infusion of either wildflowers or garden blossoms in a bowl of water, which is further diluted and potentized, and then preserved with brandy. Quality preparation requires careful attention to the purity of the environment, the vibrancy and potency of the blossoms, celestial and meteorological conditions.
Through sensitive study of the physical and energetic properties of the plant through its cycles of growth, purity and qualities of water, emotional and psychological state of preparer the essence is finally achieved.
Small is Beautiful
Working with flower essences requires a stretch in our thinking beyond the materialistic assumption that “more is better.” Flower essences, like other vibrational remedies, illustrate the principle that “small is beautiful”, embodying the specific energetic patterns of each flower in a single drop. They are part of an emerging field of non-invasive, life-enhancing subtle therapies, which promise to make a major contribution to health care in coming years.
How They Work
To understand how flower essences work requires a recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a "body" of life energy, a "body" of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or Self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, and evoke specific qualities within us.
Modern physics has known for nearly a century that matter and consciousness are intertwined. However, medical science still generally works with a nineteenth century model of the human being as a mechanism in a world of machines.
Flowers Essences of Maitri Verde
The Bach Flower Remedies is probably the most famous system of flower essence therapy and was the only system of significance from the 1920s well into the 1970s. In 1979 Dr. Richard Katz, who was seeking new methods of dealing with modern stress and the resulting ailments, founded the Flower Essence Society in California, (FES) which pledged to further the research and development of Bach's principles. As of 2000, FES hosts a database of over 100 flower essences from more than 50 countries.
Maitri Verde flower essences were created and researched near a small Costa Rican town known as, Montezuma, located in the Blue Zone of Nicoya Peninsula and in very special geographical locations of California.
All Maitri Verde's flower essences are made in small batches with permission, and under request of the featured flower, utilizing the knowledge of the Moon and Planetary cycles, and the alchemical principles.
Flower Essences for Emotional Healing
By taking flower essences you will learn to understand and accept your emotions as a natural part of yourself. Many of us have been taught, especially in childhood, that there are emotions that are unacceptable, some even became cliche stereotypes like "Big boys don't cry". As a result we learned to suppress or hide those emotions so that others around us would be more comfortable. Flower essences help to recognize your emotions, accept and respect them as a norm. Learn to appropriately express your feelings in a positive way.
Emotions, Attitudes and Traumas As Physical Manifestations
Various researches prove that physical manifestations of symptoms have their roots in emotions and attitudes. Flower essences can help us recognize our attitudes and effectively change them, providing a release of the cause of certain physical ailments. Healing is about recovering and integrating parts of ourselves that were ignored or lost from our awareness. It is about letting go of the past, so we can change our narrow perspective and step in into broader consciousness. When your life becomes fixated on the physical aspects, the tendency is to follow a process that involves tangible materials and immediate physical changes. Try to keep a simple journal to keep track of before/after states of your wellbeing. Write down all your feelings, emotions, insights and discoveries that may occur to you during the course of taking a flower essence.
