About Flower Essences

Flower essences work primarily on the mental/emotional level, although users report that the effects are often physical and spiritual as well. They are ingested; they are not perfumes or essential oils. Flower essences are not a panacea promising instant healing, although their effects may begin to be felt almost immediately; many people (and pets) respond rapidly to an essence. The craft of making flower essences is centuries old. The process may be different for each practitioner. The best essences are derived from the flower itself, not merely by "angelic" divination.

Lest you doubt that any remedy can possibly create in you the shining qualities listed on each bottle, remember these points:

  • We are capable of much more than we may believe!
  • The seeds of all good qualities already exist within us. They just need to be nurtured
  • Cortesia Flower Essences are described in terms of the positive qualities one desires, not the negative conditions one needs to change. Our high aspirations, when repeated & visualized daily, create the motivation to move ourselves along a continuum in which we express more & more of a given quality. Thus, it is not "we have it or we don't" - we're evolving!
  • Consciously setting a positive goal increases the chance of its attainment sooner than if it is left to chance
  • Flower essences can support us in asking the steps to reach our worthy goals
  • Flowers and herbs have been used worldwide for centuries to heal a variety of conditions. Truly they are a divine gift to enhance the beauty of this earth and the well-being of body/mind/spirit. It is with great humility that I offer these essences to you as a simple soulful tool towards this purpose

At the beautiful 22-acre Cortesia Sanctuary, it may well be that one or two especially fine blossoms among many of one variety are the inspiration to create a new flower essence. Each flower that is used is very carefully & lovingly selected for optimal potency, and each blend has grown out of much meditation & soulful reflection on the human condition and the needs & aspirations we each have.

Most of the flowers are organically grown in our 2-acre garden or wildcrafted from surrounding forests and meadows; a few come from gardens and sacred places in Hawaii. The essences are prepared using non-treated water and preserved for freshness with the finest brandy available (this accounts for the slight taste when taken). They are futher enhanced and potentized by placement in a copper Genesa crystal from Peralandra.



Cortesia Flower Essence Blends

All Cortesia Flower Essence Blends are created by Tricia Clark-McDowell of Cortesia Sanctuary, Eugene, Oregon.

Cortesia Flower Essences are unique among most commercial brands, for this reason: Each flower essence blend consists of the essence from each of 5-7 different flowers.

Cortesia Flower Essences are in 1oz dosage bottles and should not be further diluted or rebottled (unless drops are used in a glass of water); i.e. These essences are not stock solutions.

Loving Myself Blend

A very popular and powerful essence, the Loving Myself Blend has been specially formulated to assist you in generating a loving and kind quality, whether you are stable or in transition in life events.

This blend will stimulate & support a return to one's core. If we cannot truly love ourselves, then who will? This may be the antidote to many of life's larger struggles and our own personal sense of loss, imbalance, or powerlessness. We can choose to take the time to nurture ourselves and our deeper dreams. Through stillness & contemplation, we can remember to listen deeply to the voice of Spirit within us, guiding us on our path towards peace of mind. When we begin to feel & see ourselves more clearly, we understand our present limitations and our true potential. We can then accept our role within the larger picture as it naturally unfolds and becomes perfected over time. By truly loving ourselves, the expression of our love for others can only be deepened.
Dosage: as desired, 3 drops several times a day. Putting 6 drops in a cup of water & sipping often may be easier for some.

It contains the following flower essences and the qualities they evoke:

  • Calypso Orchid: attuning to divine guidance, spiritual openness
  • Foxglove: allowing things to unfold in their right time, understanding & flowing with the natural rhythms & cycles of life and nature

  • Star Tulip: loving, nurturing, & accepting oneself
  • Woods Anemone: surrender to the plain & simple truth, seing our personal reality clearly without denial

ABOUT THE HERBS

Calendula – As an antiflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal, it is very soothing for inflammation, dry skin, cuts, bruises, scrapes, burns and sunburn.

Chickweed - A valuable first-aid remedy for drawing out stubborn splinters and irritants from insect stings. Soothing for burns, scolds, boils.

Comfrey – Cooling and lubricating to sprains, strains, inflamed or arthritic joints, and other injuries to joints and muscles. The allantoin in comfrey is absorbed through the skin and speeds healing. Comfrey also encourages cell regrowth in clean wounds, connective tissues and broken bones; it also breaks down red blood cells in bruising.

Lemon Balm - A well-known antidote for insect bites, sores and painful swelling; or, to repel insects

Plantain - Known as an "herbal drawing agent" that assists in drawing out splinters, pus and infection out of wounds. Also useful for boils, shingles, herpes, poison oak/ivy, bruises, bites, frostbite and other skin eruptions. Furthermore, it is cooling to hot inflamed tissues.

Prunella - An effective antibacterial that quickly aids to stop bleeding and close open wounds and cuts. Also useful for bleeding hemorrhoids.

St. John's Wort – Localized nerve pain, such as sciatica, sprains, and cramps. Also for burns and muscle or joint inflammations such as tennis elbow, wrist aching, etc.

Yarrow - Very effective for wounds, nose bleeds and deep cuts

Usnea (known as Oak Moss) - Actually a lichen that is a combination of two organisms: fungus and algae growing in symbiotic union as one plant. It is commonly found hanging as a lacey moss from oaks and firs (especially in the moist Pacific Northwest). When absorbed internally through the skin in our Healing Salve, it works as an efficient herbal antibiotic, antifungal and antibacterial. Ours is the only known salve that uses Usnea (it grows so plentiful in the forests surrounding our gardens!), and we have every reason to believe that it is what gives our Cortesia Healing Salve that extra HEALING BOOST!

 

Cortesia Healing Salve

Hands down, this is absolutely a miracle of a workhorse salve for many types of small, daily run-ins with life. We all know those little "ow"-ies we get in the yard or garden, kitchen or shop; at work or play. We have received hundreds of rave comments about our salve's effectiveness (oh, if babies could talk, too!). A good, quick-acting salve is hard to find. When found, it is treasured.

Ingredients: Calendula flowers (Calendula officinalis), Chickweed flowers (Stellaria media), Prunella flowers (Prunella vulgaris), St. John's Wort flowers (Hypericum perforatum), Yarrow flowers (Achillea millefolium), Comfrey leaf and root (Symphytum officinale), Lemon balm leaves (Melissa officianalis), Plantain leaves (Plantago major) and Usnea/Oak Moss (Usnea barbata) all organically grown or wildcrafted at Cortesia Sanctuary and prepared in a base of extra virgin organic olive oil and organic beeswax. Unscented.

Dosage: Apply directly as needed. It can be applied to clean open wounds. You may desire to lightly cover the salved area for healing reasons and/or to protect clothing, etc from soiling (can wash out!).

Benefits and uses: There must be a thousand uses for this salve, based upon hundreds of testimonies over the years. Here's a short-list:

  • Diaper rash (Parents love our Healing Salve, and so do babies!)
  • Skin rashes (Gardeners swear by our Salve's soothing & quick-acting relief)
  • Poison ivy & oak, hives, etc. (Outdoors people keep our Salve handily packed)
  • Chapped lips, hands,sunburns, minor burns (Quick-acting relief that stays)
  • Minor cuts and bruises and insect bites, even puncture wounds
