Flower Essences for Balance & Clarity While Traveling, by Jessica Mennella

We live in a fast-paced world. The ever-increasing speed of technology, social media and thought is a departure from the rhythm of the natural world.  This divergence between technology and nature can create anticipation and anxiety as we attempt to “keep up.” One of the best ways to soothe and support the self in this time is to connect with the Earth: time with nature, walks in the forest, sitting under a tree.

It can be difficult to do this in the summer while we are traveling on planes, in cars, staying in unfamiliar places, and away from the earth we know. During this time, flower essences, herbal tinctures, and scent and smell all provide simple, portable ways to bring nature in our pockets, to easily connect to the earth’s rhythm.  Here are two recipes you can make at home: a soothing spray for your body, aura and physical space (just not your face!), and a flower essence remedy to take (4 drops twice a day, or on a band-aid placed on your wrist – this method works best for kids).  Use liberally, and breathe.  The flowers are here to support you.

The Recipes (Note: you can purchase essential oils and essences in your local herbal shop, or at Flower Essence Society:
