A blend of a few flower and gem essences that focus on a particular emotional or spiritual state or condition are a highly effective approach in vibrational healing. Most commonly, an essences practitioner will conduct an interview with a client and choose a blend of two to seven essences (most often four or five) that enhance and compliment one another. While it is highly recommended to seek a consultation and have the practitioner choose a blend for you (the practitioner is more objective and usually very knowledgeable about the properties and potential of each essence at his or her disposal), you may choose your own blend if you are strongly drawn to this method, but keep the following in mind:
Make a clear intention what you would like to focus on. Select up to five essences from our offering and consider including hematite for grounding and yarrow for protection and for repairing of the aura. Generally a blend to address emotional or spiritual growth will be comprised of only one or two gems and the rest will be flowers. List the chosen essences in a note with your order.
We suggest that you not wait but start taking your essences blend as soon as you receive it, as it corresponds strongly to your current state. Some people like to wait though if they are sick with a cold of flu, but it is up to you.
If your blend is composed of Pacific Northwest essences made by Ava, your will receive the so-called stock potency of each of the essence. A blend of stock potency can be stored carefully for a long period of time, even many years.
If your blend is prepared based on a consultation with Ava and includes some essences from Ava's huge essences library purchased from other renowned makers, the blend will be of dosage potency. It will be equally effective to a stock blend but should be taken within 2-3 months as it does not keep potent forever.
