Essences hold the vibrational energy signature of the flower, tree, plant or other aspect of Nature from which they are made. At An-Grianan I delight in co-creating these beautiful and potent essences in heartful relationship with the consciousness of Nature.
The conscious intelligence, or spirit, of Nature is concerned with balance in all its manifestations, and strives to maintain this balance in all forms. Every tree, plant, or flower contains the wholeness of the consciousness of Nature and also has its own unique character. Therefore each of the An-Grianan Essences encapsulates the balancing effects of all of Nature plus the particular characteristic of the tree, plant or flower with which the essence has been produced.
See Essence links below for more information on the individual essences.
I have been making Essences for my own use (as well as family and friends) for around 20 years, and I began developing the An-Grianan Essences collections in 2015.
The essences I co-create with the Plant Kingdom are of two types –
1. Flower Essences
The An-Grianan Flower Essences are made by the traditional method of floating flowers in a bowl of pure water. This bowl is left in the sun for a period of time (and sometimes overnight) as the energy signature of the flowers imbue the water with their beneficial qualities, thus creating the Mother Essence.
2. Tree Spirit and Plant Spirit Essences
The An-Grianan Tree Spirit Essences and Plant Spirit Essences are created purely by intention. With conscious and heartful engagement, a relationship is established with the consciousness of the tree or plant with which the essence will be made. Together we then transmit its energy signature into pure water to create the Mother Essence.
MAKING THE ESSENCES
When it is time to make an essence, the call of a particular plant or tree is felt intuitively. Together we will then co-create the Mother Essence. As I work with the consciousness of the flower, plant or tree involved, the balancing effects brought by its vibration can be discerned on the different levels of the energetic body. These impressions of the beneficial properties of the essence and the issues it can address are recorded throughout the essence-making process in order to inform their future use.
The time of making an essence will be influenced by certain considerations such as the phase of the moon, time of year (equinoxes and solstices), and weather conditions. When the right conditions come together, the Mother Essence will be created.
Drops of the Mother Essence are added to further bottles to create essences at stock level ready for purchase. These essences can then be taken direct from the bottle by the individual or diluted further to create a dosage bottle.
Nb. Traditionally alcohol has been used as a preservative, and at An-Grianan Essences we use Organic Vodka. Non-alcohol essences are available on request.
