Lunar Phase Essences
The lunar essences are a combination of flower essences (both Bach and FES California) and lunar essences that I have been making for the last year during specific phases of the moon cycle as well as during potent astrological lineups.
I have used at least one moon phase for each element within the bottle and thus you have the full spectrum of fire, earth, air and water to call upon in that essence as well.
The cycle, ideally, begins with the New Moon because that's best to start projects, intuit the future and begins things.
The 8 Lunar Essences:
New Moon Essence: Clematis (Clematis vitalba), Aspen (Populus tremula), Indian paintbrush (Castilleja miniata)
Crescent Moon Essence: Larch (Larix decidua), Wild Oat (Bromus ramosus), Blackberry (Rubus ursinus)
First Quarter Moon Essence: Blackberry (Rubus ursinus), Gentian (Gentiana amarella), Oak (Quercus robar)
Gibbous Moon Essence: Buttercup (Ranunculus occidentalis), White chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum), Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)
Full Moon Essence: Oak (Quercus robur), Scleranthus (Scleranthus annuus), Indian paintbrush (Castilleja miniata)
Disseminating Moon Essence: Sage (Salvia officinalis), Olive (Olea Europaea), Buttercup (Ranunculus occidentalis)
Last Quarter Moon Essence: Crab apple (Malus sylvestris), Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica), Walnut (Juglans regia)
Balsamic Moon Essence: Sage (Salvia officinalis), Mugwort (Artemesia douglasiana), Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum)
How To Use
The idea is to start them with the new moon and take each essence for the 3-ish days of each moon phase for that month. It is also fine to start at any time of the cycle but if it can be started at the new moon you can ride the energy of each of the phases to its fullest potential. The cycle is 28/29 days in total and is a great way to align yourself with each months energy.
The bottles are labelled with each of the moon phase names/shapes. Be aware that the shapes are done in the northern hemisphere moon phases so as not to confuse you if you are in the southern hemisphere.
How To Consume
To take the essences have 3-4 drops on the tongue 2-4 times per day for the 3 days of each moon phase. If you find you only want to take the drops morning and night that is also a great idea.
Enjoy and I hope you enjoy the journey and discovery around the cycle of the moon and what it can help bring into your life and align.
