How Do We Know What The Flowers Do?

Writing descriptions of flower essences is probably my least favorite job. To distill their very essence, character and action into an easily understood paragraph so that it’s usable by other people besides me is something I have to undertake after quite a bit of mustering up.  Every once in a while I get somebody asking, […]

When the Magic Runs Out

Flower essences make problems disappear. It really is incredible and I often tell people “it’s like magic!” However, there are lines they can’t cross.

Flying With Flower Essences

Yes you can take essences on a plane! Subjecting essences to radiation is definitely something to avoid. Storing them by the tv or microwave is not a good idea, but the short term exposure from an x ray scan doesn’t seem to hurt them. There are no limits on liquids in your checked baggage, but […]
