Flower essences are subtle liquid extracts which are used to address profound issues of emotional well-being, soul development, and mind-body health. They work not because of the chemical composition of the liquid, but because of the life forces derived from the plant and contained within the water-based matrix.*
Like homeopathic remedies, flower essences are vibrational in nature and because they offer their immense healing gifts energetically, there are none of the drawbacks of chemical medicine. They are completely safe to work with whether you use them alone or alongside other healing modalities.
Flower essences are a primary treatment for what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls Shen or Spirit. TCM views Shen or Spirit as containing aspects of emotional and mental health. Each flower has a specific frequency and holds information that can help us realize our true nature and help us shift out of self-limiting, self-destructive patterns and behaviors.
All Maitri Verde's Flower Essences are made in small batches with permission and under request of said specimen, utilizing the knowledge of the Moon and Planetary cycles, and the alchemical principles.

Using directly from the bottle
Place 4 drops under the tongue, or in a glass of water and take 4 times daily. Take the essence first thing in the morning and right before the bedtime. The other two dosages take throughout your day.
For acute cases use hourly, or even several times an hour, on a temporary basis.
You can apply drops topically on the CV17 acupressure point located on the sternum, directly in the center of the chest, midway between the nipples to raise overall energy of the body, to get centered and warm. Or on C22 acupressurepoint, located at the base of the throat in the depression that is in the center of the collar bone to assist any feeling of tightness, oppression or congestion in the upper body and to open/free the expression.
Using a glass spray bottle or mister
Prepare as you would a dosage bottle (see below). Rather than taking the drops internally, spray the mixture around the body or along the meridians, and in the environment. Shake the bottle before each application to sustain potency.
Preparing a dosage bottle
Fill a one-ounce (30 ml) glass dropper bottle nearly full of spring water or other fresh water. Add a small amount of brandy (1/8 to 1/4 of the bottle) as a preservative. More brandy can be added if the dosage bottle is used over a number of months, or will be subject to high temperatures.
To the water and brandy mixture, add two to four drops of flower essences from the stock bottle of each essence selected.
After the essence stock has been added and before each subsequent use, you may want to rhythmically shake or lightly tap the bottle in order to keep the essences in a more potent or energized state.
Use in baths
Add about 20 drops of stock of each essence to a normal-sized bath tub of warm water. Stir the water in a lemniscatory (figure-eight) motion for at least one minute to help potentize the remedies in the water.
Soak in this solution for approximately 20 minutes. Pat the skin gently dry, and then rest quietly or go to sleep to continue to absorb the subtle qualities of the essences.
Add 6–10 drops of stock of each essence per 30 gm (1 oz) of creme, oil, or lotion. Use on a daily basis either exclusively, or to supplement oral use.
Essence drops can also be applied directly on the body in conjunction with massage, acupressure or acupuncture, or chiropractic treatments.
Frequency and timing of dosage
Regular, rhythmic use of the flower remedies builds the strength of their catalytic action.
Therefore, potency is increased not by taking more drops at one time, but by using them
on a frequent, consistent basis. In most cases, the essences should be taken four times
daily, although this may need to be increased in emergency or acute situations to once
every hour, or even more often.
Children or other highly sensitive persons may at times need to decrease the frequency
of use to once or twice daily, if they seem to be reacting too strongly. The essences
address the relationship between the body and soul, and therefore are most effective at
the thresholds of awakening and retiring, since these are the times when the boundaries
between body and soul shift.
Other transition times of the day are also important, such as just before the noon or
evening meals. Even when the essences are used in the midst of a hectic schedule, it is
beneficial to allow a quiet moment of receptivity so that the messages of the flowers can
be received at a subtle level. Many people find it helpful to remember to take the
essences by keeping one bottle of their flower essence formula right on the bedstand,
and another one of the same combination in their purse, briefcase, or in the kitchen.
Although flower essences can be used on a short-term basis for acute situations, their
ideal use is for long-term or deep-seated mental-emotional change. At this level, the
most common cycle of essence use is four weeks or one month, a time interval which is
strongly correlated to the emotional or astral body.
Seven-day or 14-day cycles may also be of significance in the growth process. For
particularly deep changes, a whole series of monthly cycles may need to be considered.
However, in most cases changes will be noticed in about one month. At this interval
there is usually the need to re-formulate or re-assess the flower essence combination. I
recommend continuing to use a formula or a single essence for a period of time even
after some change has been noticed. This allows a possibility for the essences to be
“anchored” at deeper levels of consciousness.
Below are detailed descriptions of the individual flower essences included in the blend and the healing affirmation for each. Choose one or more that resonates most with your individual life story.
Bleeding Heart flower essence purifies and strengthens the heart chakra, as well as all emotions concerning love, bringing an open-hearted attitude and soothing the emotions so that one may re-invite the spirit of love into their life. This flower remedy offers unconditional love to the wounded healer in all of us. It offers particular healing to those who have a broken heart due to loss. This flower essence is good for those experiencing divorce, death of a loved one, self-inflicted self judgements, heartbreak or the loss of a pet, and any other sadness that shadows the light of love that stems from the heart.
I release emotional attachments to others.
I fill my heart with the peace of inner strength.
I ray forth my Love to others as a free gift.
Pedicularis: Delving into patterns of the past
Pedicularis flower essence helps the soul to remember and to release.
Helpful for those who displays anxiety along with deep sensitivity, for there is fear within the soul that one is merely repeating or revisiting past states of soul life including past life, without the strength to clearly name the reality and to move forward from it.
I honor the spacious sea of receptivity within my soul.
I breathe out my sensitivity and let it shimmer in the light of the world.
I delve into the depths of my pain to understand patterns of past and present.
The horizons of my heart are sunlit with new insight and compassion.
Echinacea - Energetically Supports the Immune System
The Echinacea flower essence is of remarkable benefit to the immune system, not by working directly on acute physical conditions as does the pharmaceutical herb, but rather stimulating the “I’ forces within the body-soul matrix. It is this cohering sense of Self that is at the heart of all immune function – able to discern and accept life-enhancing forces and to ward off destructive forces. Many aspects within modern society work against the core self-identity, including post-traumatic stress, recreational drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, environmental toxins, over-use of vaccines and antibiotics, and various forms of disruptive technology. As a result, modern society is overwhelmed with many baffling and devastating diseases that involve poor immune function, or auto-immune disorder.
I stand strong within my Self.
I meet adversity with inner strength.
My core Self is Sacrosanct.
I am the luminous Self.
Yarrow for Protection: Maintaining the Integrity of Our Healthy Boundaries. The alchemical blending of strength and sensitivity in Yarrow was recognized by ancient cultures, revering it as a protective herb, “The Knight’s Milfoil.” Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, was named for Achilles, who had to protect his one vulnerable spot. Yarrow flower essence is used when we feel “vulnerable” to the energies of others or our environment, which can “bleed through” into our own reality. Yarrow allows us to remain sensitive and open, yet maintain the integrity of our healthy boundaries, our “psychic skin.”
My aura stands healed and protected.
I am strengthened by a shining shield of Light.
I am this Light-Strong Self.
Buttercup: Feeling Self-Worth Through Active Presence in the World
Buttercup essence gives the ability to feel one’s self-worth through active presence in the world, despite the inherent selfless disposition of the soul. The innate humility and selflessness of the soul is actually a source of greatest purity and spirituality. But the challenge is for the soul to feel and act upon that light, rather than sequestering it only within the deepest recesses of the soul.
My quiet, small deeds can contribute to World-Good.
I acknowledge the unique Light within me.
In grace and simplicity, I Light the World.
