I swear everybody is dealing with anxiety. It has ramped up like crazy in the last couple of years. There are a lot of issues that people are struggling with. For example, you may feel stressed having to return to the workforce or return to school.
And mental health therapists are crazy busy right now. Therapists have doubled their caseload as people are dealing with the stress of recent times on top of other daily stressors. So I have been looking for all the ways that I can help support people deal with stress and their mental health.
I often talk about utilizing food and nutrition to deal with anxiety. But flower essences are different types of elixirs, spray, and oils that you can use to help with anxiety symptoms.
What are flower essences?
Most people are well-versed in essential oils to some degree. Flower essences are similar. However, they’re considered safer because it’s a topical application. You don’t have to worry about anything burning your skin as it doesn’t need to be mixed with other oils.
They’re natural flowers that have their own unique energy. All the ingredients are completely natural. There’s nothing nasty or toxic. So you don’t have to worry about some of the chemicals I see people using in supplements or essential oils.
I was first blown away by flower essences when I had Katie Hess on my podcast. In episode 73, Katie had me take the quiz on her website, which left me speechless.
It looked at the different flowers you’re drawn to for whatever reason. Katie then puts together different types of essences that would be best for you and what your body seems to need. And I didn’t know how to respond to the products she pulled from me taking the quiz.
How do you use flower essences?
There are many different flower essences that can be used to treat different needs. From the quiz, Katie suggested I try a flower elixir, spray, and anointing oil.
You simply put a few drops of the flower elixir into your water or on your tongue. I put it in my coffee or whatever I like to get its full effect. Whereas the spray, you can mist all over yourself. Then, I apply a few drops of the oil on your wrist like perfume.
How do flower essences help with stress and anxiety?
The whole idea is that flowers in the essences have an energy and frequency that helps people. Using them regularly is going to help calm you from stress. It can help with anxiety. It can help with clarity.
Katie’s flower essences can also help with multitasking and crazy schedules that keep us tired and unfocused. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my ability to focus and stay calm even in the busiest times.
If you have symptoms of stress or anxiety and feel frustrated from things being thrown at you. Flower essences might be one of the things that you can use to help mitigate those concerns.
