Flower, gem and environmental essences, also known as vibrational essences, are a type of energy medicine. They work on a subtle level, connecting us with the pure, vibrational energy of the plant (Gorse), tree (Holly Tree), gem, animal, or environment (Fairy fort) with which they were co-created. This type of energy therapy connects us deeply with our surroundings and environment so we can access their energetic and healing properties.
Vibrational essences are made by holding an intention-with the permission and cooperation of the plant, gem, animal or environment in question-of co-creating an essence. Then a bowl of water is usually placed close to the element. For flower essences, the petals of the flower are placed in the bowl. I explain more about how I created the Dingle Essences here: Creating the Dingle Essences.
The energy-infused water is preserved with alcohol, in this case using the award-winning Dingle Vodka. Much cooperation and respect is required on the part of the originator to create a pure vibrational essence.
The Dingles essences are safe for anyone to take, including babies, the elderly, and, or course, animals! They are often taken in water, but can also be used topically. They have no interaction with medications that you may be taking. If you can't consume alcohol for any reason, please contact me to talk about the possibility of an alternate preservative.
Depending on the reasons you are using the essence, as well as the properties of the essence you choose, you may feel some emotional clearing, especially in the first few days. In animals, you may notice some behavioural or energy changes. Give yourself , or your animal, adequate time and sacred space needed to support your healing.
Response times vary from 48 hours to 4 months, depending on how deep-seated the emotions are. Patience and perseverance are the key words, as the remedies truly work if given a chance.
The purpose of essences is to help people, and animals, find the most positive side of themselves, and in doing so break barriers and clear away blockages that stop them from living their happiest lives. Be kind and gentle with yourself or your animals.
The bottle that you have purchased has instructions on the side, '4 drops twice a day' . These drops can be taken on the tongue or can be added to a glass/bottle of water and sipped slowly throughout the day. You can add the drops to your bath and take a long soak, or even add to a spray bottle where you can then spray this into your environment.
The drops can be added to the drinking bowl of water for your animal and placed on their treats or food. (I suggest that you dilute the 4 drops with water first, before giving this to your animal. If other animals drink from this, it is absolutely fine, as the essences are 100% safe this and may actually benefit other animals in your home). You can add the drops to a compress and apply to the body of your animal. You can dilute some in water and drop on to your palms and then rub this into the fur of your animal. (They LOVE this and will THANK you for this SPA felt experience.)
