A New Look for Our Single Flower Essences
We’re delighted to share our new label designs for our single Flower Essences!
The idea of putting a picture of the flower on the label of each of our single flower essences has been on our to do list for quite a while now. And as lovely as the flower photos are, this was not just for aesthetic reasons either.
Just as a flower essence is an expression of the energy of the flower from which it is made, a picture is an expression of its energy too, a visual energetic signature. You’ll probably have noticed before when you look at a picture of a beautiful flower that it can conjure a reaction, especially if you let yourself feel into the subtle energies of the picture. When we let ourselves connect with the energies of an image, we can often feel a profound energetic reaction; this might be a conscious or sub-conscious reaction, but if you can feel into it, it can act as an interesting guide.
Do you feel drawn to the flower in the image? Do you feel an anticipation when you sense the energy of the flower photo? Do you feel trepidation when you look at the image? How does this make you feel? These are all signs that at a subtle level you are feeling the energy of the flower from its image. All of the above signs are a good indication that you might need the essence, especially the feeling of trepidation! When we feel a strong reaction it is often a sign of old energy needing to shift.
So having a picture of the flower on the label is lovely way to connect with the both the energetic qualities of the flower and the flower essence.
The Creative Process
We have a regular cycle of making new Mother Tinctures and we often add new essences, but one thing we haven’t done for many years is to update the labelling for these single Essences, so there was a strong pull to create something new.
The first part of the process was to collect together all of the required images. While we have a big collection of different flower photos which we have taken over the years, as it turned out, for one reason or another, not all of the ones we had on file worked well on the labels. So the first thing to do was to reconnect with the flowers and take or source photos for the ‘missing’ flowers. Once this was achieved, we then came to the design process and after several months of creative design, fun, quite a bit of trial and error and time spent on Photoshop, it finally all came together and here we are! It sounds simple, but we tend to find that these things are never achieved in straight lines, more round about routes to get to the end of the journey!
So Many Beautiful Flowers
It’s amazing when you look through the complete collection of different flower essences just what a variety of different flowers there are; in terms of colour, shape, size and habitat and most importantly of course energetic feel. It feels like a lovely, joyful, heartfelt offering to the world, and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed creating them for you.
About Flower Essences
Flower Essences can be very deep acting and have the ability to clear old energy patterns, thoughts & emotions, helping restore balance and harmony to mind and emotion. Each Flower Essence holds a particular vibrational frequency or energy, which helps to release old patterns, getting you to the root of an issue.
