Many of our favorite flowers have distinctive healing energies; which can be captured in water. A key difference is that flower essences minister to the emotional body while essential oils treat the physical body. However, vials of a multitude of these are available at grocers, pharmacies and new age shops. Bach Flower Remedies are doubtless the most popular and are seemingly everywhere with a recommended dosage of 3 to 4 drops taken via the bottle dropper under the tongue 2 to 4 times a day. I suggest not using more than 2 different floral waters at any given time for full effect. Flower essences are typically ingested directly via the mouth or by way of adding a few drops to a glass of water. They can also be dropped onto linens such as your pillow case, a sachet, or into your bath. They can be applied directly to the pulse points such as temples and wrists. These floral essences are also different from essential oils in that they do not carry the scent of the flower. It takes a single flower to make an essence whereas essential oils rely on a significant amount of the plant. Here are some essences that are good for emotions:
Passion Flower connects us to our higher self and connects to the divine
Lemon blossoms clear away mental fog, add focus and bring forth clarity
Hibiscus awakens chakra points and is good for sexual healing
Nasturtium creates a sense of roundedness and stops overt hiking and worry
Grape hyacinth releases past trauma, emotional wounds and reduces stress
As you walk into your bedroom, the relationship corner will be the back right corner. Your love and sex energy have to be nurtured there, so you might as well consider placing your altar there to serve as your personal erotic wellspring.
Look at this area with a fresh eye—what is cluttering your love corner with dead energy? Half-empty perfume bottles or near- empty cosmetic bottles could be impairing your relationship energy. You must clear unhappiness out of this space and clear the area of any clutter by getting rid of all unnecessary objects and tidying up.
To cleanse the area, ring a hand bell anywhere clutter has accumulated, giving special attention to your bed and pillows. Here are a few tips:
Never bring old pillows into a new home. Old pillows can cause poor sleep and bad dreams. They can carry old sexual energy and can kill a relationship.
Never place your bed in the center of a room, as this will cause anxiety and get in the way of a healthy sex life.
Never have the foot of the bed facing the door, as this brings very bad luck.
To keep your lovemaking fresh, always make the bed and change the linens often.
Place these objects in your bedroom to attract loving energy:
- 2 rose quartz crystals of equivalent size
- Pink, orange, or red fabric
- 2 red candles
- Images of two butterflies or two lovebirds
