By Nicholas Pearson
In this practical guide to using flower essences in witchcraft, alchemy, and healing, Nicholas Pearson provides detailed instructions for making and using flower essences based on traditional Western magick practices. He shares new magickal uses for essences, from creating sacred space to dressing candles to preparing incense, as well as how to use them in meditation, potions, spells, spagyrics, and ritual. He shares exercises for attuning to plant spirits, finding your plant spirit allies, and connecting more deeply to the energies of the green world as well as exploring how essences can be used in traditional sacraments of witchcraft like the Great Rite.
In the hands—on formulary, the author details recipes for essence combinations for the eight sabbats and formulas based on familiar blends like traditional flying ointments of European witchcraft. He also includes blends for love, abundance, healing, and protection as well as a magickally inspired rescue remedy. He shares his method for creating flower essence spagyrics——alchemical preparations made from the body, mind, and soul of the plant that offer the highest vibrational potency for therapeutic and spiritual uses. The author also provides a detailed directory of 100 flower and plant essences, complete with astrological, elemental, and magickal correspondences, and the therapeutic indications for each essence.
Weaving together magickal herbalism, traditional plant lore, and flower essence therapy, this guide allows you to see flower essences not just as vibrational remedies, but also as powerful tools for transformation, magick, and spiritual practice.
