This week is an excellent day for self-care including using flowers from the garden!
Bring the beauty of nature into your home is truly elegant way to celebrate both the gifts of the sun and the energy of a Cancer moon. It’s easy is to make a custom “flower essence” from your garden flowers, or house plants that bloom.
All you need is a few fresh flowers, water, and sunshine.
For an extra infusion of energy, while you are taking the petals off and dropping them gently into the bowl of clear fresh filtered water, consider the magic of nature – and bask in the abundance she produces - visual beauty, scent, soft petals, appealing shapes and the colors!
Bring these ingredients together and let them soak in the sun for a few hours.
Bringing these elements together in the form of flowers… you have a simple yet powerful way to align yourself with the energies of this special time of year.
After setting the flowers in water and allowing them to soak up the sun to make a special “flower essence”.
Practice exquisite self care by adding the flower essence that to a tub of warm running water and soak for 20 - 30 minutes while listening to music or sounds of nature. If you really wanted an extra special "granola glamour girl" practice, fill up a small pool and take your soak outside in your garden in the sunshine or under the starlit sky!
