Shiva RoseValentine’s Day is almost upon us and for some who are not in relationships it is a good time to focus on reenergizing their heart energy. It can also be a way to nourish us, as mamas since we are constantly giving and creating love for our children. Flower essences work in very subtle ways, but are truly powerful in cultivating deep work.

Flower essences are infusions of flowers in water that can promote spiritual and emotional healing and help with imbalances. The essences are basically imprints of the energy of certain flowers. I have seen subtle but remarkable shifts when taking an essence over time.

Flower essences that will benefit overextended mamas are Elm, which builds confidence and endurance, sunflower for resting in one’s power especially in roles of service, and olive for making time for relaxation and dealing with challenges.

Essences to promote self-love, which are wonderful for single mamas, range from wild rose, which helps with creating interest and excitement in life. Evening Star for self-love and appreciation, and lace flower for boosting self-esteem.

Making your own essences can be quite easy. On my site I have made a few in the past ( Otherwise you can buy wonderful essences from Bach remedies, Alexis Smart Remedies and one of my favorites Tree Frog Farms.

Happy Valentines and may you have a blessed and full heart!
