To gain the greatest healing benefit, carefully match your specific feelings or current state to the healing qualities of the essences.

Essences can be effectively chosen with cognitive, left brain and intuitive right brain methods:

Cognitive, left brain: Match information from reflection on your issues to the healing qualities of the essences.

The following two books and the recommended essences lists on this site are excellent sources of cross reference of emotional and spiritual issues to essences which help heal them. I highly recommend purchasing at least one of them for a lifetime reference for this powerful source of holistic well being and healing:


Flower Essence Repertory, Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz
(creators of FES essences)
The Alchemy of the Desert: A Comprehensive Guide to Desert Flower Essences for Professional and Self-Help Use, Cynthia Athina Kemp Scherer
(creator of Desert Alchemy essences)

Intuitive, right brain
such as kinesiology, the use of a pendulum or flower essence cards.

Kinesiology or use of a pendulum are helpful to get yes/no answers or confirmation for your best guess for flower essences appropriate to the situation. The flower essences cards can be used as divination decks for helping us choose essences. The beautiful photographs of the flowers on these cards can also help us connect with the energetic healing signature of the flowers we are taking on a deeper level. Available from FES and Desert Alchemy. ( link here).

It can sometimes be helpful to use the services of a flower essence consultant well versed in many of the essences, and trained to help you both clarify your issues in a session of tender compassion and loving support. Consultations can also reduce the time it can take to familiarize yourself with a wide array of essences.

Flower essences don't treat behaviors,
they treat underlying causes,
which is why they work so well.
