Flower, Gem & Crystal Essence Suggestions to help you this month

We’ve carefully selected a range of essences to help you stay aligned, centred and connected with your true self this month so you can make the most of current opportunities for emotional balance and spiritual expansion.

Astrological Essence for the Month

Towards the end of his life, Dr Bach was exploring the link between the first 12 Bach Flower Remedies he discovered (The Twelve Healers) and the 12 astrological signs.

Cerato Flower Remedy for Geminis

We are in Gemini season, the astrological sign that Dr Bach felt would most benefit from the Cerato flower essence.

Energetic, outgoing and communicative, Geminis are quick thinkers whose curious minds are interested in everything. Natural multi-taskers with adventurous spirits, they are happiest exploring new ideas, new places and meeting new people.

However, their thirst for external knowledge and exploring new things means they can easily lose connection with their own inner knowing.

If your Sun or Moon is in Gemini, Cerato Flower Remedy can help you to hear your inner voice so you can make decisions with certainty and trust your own innate wisdom. 

Trust Your Inner Guidance

Do you become indecisive when faced with lots of options and find it difficult to make decisions on your own? Do you seek advice and opinions from others because you don’t trust your inner guidance? Do you research logical answers to problems instead of trusting your own judgement?

The soul lesson for Gemini is to listen to your own inner knowing and learn to trust your intuition and instincts instead of relying purely on your logical mind. Taking Cerato can help to increase your connection with your Higher Self for clear inner guidance.

Team Choice - Slow Down & Relax

This is where one of the Crystal Herbs team shares which essence they're taking and why. This month Catherine shares her experiences of taking the Inner Harmony Essence....

Inner Harmony Essence

Catherine Keattch

Inner Harmony is an essence that I have turned to often over the last few years when my human self has been feeling too stretched, agitated, stressed or tense about something. For me this means that I get easily wound up, try to go too fast and then find myself out of my centre and unable to relax.

My experience of taking the Inner Harmony essence is that it helps enormously to calm to my nervous system and to allow the knots in my mind and body to release so that I can slow down and relax again. Then I can move back into my heart and find that quiet place where there is calmness, harmony, and soul wisdom to help with whatever challenge I might be facing.

Inner Guidance for Daily Life

From the quiet inner space in our hearts, we have been tuning into the essences which will support you best with the energetics this month.
As the pace of life continues to speed up and external distractions seem to be intensifying, it’s increasingly important that we each stay connected to our hearts and inner wisdom so we can fulfil our unique soul’s purpose.

Flower Essences and other Vibrational Essences are very effective for peeling back the layers of old energetic imprints, patterns, beliefs and stories that stop us from remembering the essence of who we truly are and the unique soul gifts we have to share. This month we’re focusing on two essences that help you to embrace your power and purpose so that you can express your soul gifts in the world.


Puya Flowers

Puya Flower Essence

Puya flower essence has a dynamic fiery energy which works as a catalyst for awakening more of your true self as well as giving you the impetus to move forward in your life. Puya is a great essence to use if you want to feel more balanced, aligned and connected with yourself because it works on so many different levels. Take it if you’re feeling stuck, confused, not able to get on with things or want more mental clarity, focus, emotional objectivity, dynamism and motivation. It’s also a great essence to use if you’re on a spiritual journey and looking for a catalyst to accelerate your spiritual growth.

Soul Gifts Essence
The Soul Gifts Essence helps you to remember the divine soul gifts which you carry within your akashic record or Soul memory. You have developed many varied talents through previous lifetimes which are treasures that you are here to share in this lifetime. This essence helps to bring your unique gifts into consciousness so that you can experience a greater connection to your true self and soul’s purpose.

Join Sam & Jackie from Crystal Herbs to discover whether you’re ungrounded, the reasons why that happens, tips for supporting yourself when you lose connection with yourself, and how flower essences can help you to be more present and live in the moment. Being ungrounded is very common and happens so unconsciously that many of us don’t even recognise when we’ve lost our connection. We explore some of the emotional triggers, personal patterns and habits that create disconnection from your emotions, your body and the earth, and share personal insights about how we’ve learnt to become more present and connected.

Essence Suggestions from May's Edition of E-Light

Catherine Keattch

As we move deeper into our journey of transformation, we are facing the need to upgrade and change some of the fundamental beliefs that have under pinned the fabric of life as we have known it. The energies this month have a clear focus on assisting us to do this so our Essence Suggestions for May are based around essences that can help us with this process.

Deep Transformation

At a fundamental level our process of transformation is taking us from a consciousness based in polarity and separation to one based in unity and love. One of the primary drivers of a consciousness based in polarity and separation is the vibrational frequency of fear.

If you look carefully at the old patterns that are currently coming up for review, you will most likely find fear sitting squarely at the bottom of most of them. With this in mind we thought that we would start with a reminder of some essences that can help us to dissolve this unhelpful frequency so that we can begin to see past it.

Check out Inner Calm; transforming fear, Strength & Courage Spray; overcoming fear, Feeling Safe; trusting life and Pink Rose to see which would most support you.

Pink Rose from the Karmic Essences range is one of our favourite essences at the moment when we are working with fears. It has the ability to quickly isolate the fear that you are working with and then ping it into your awareness so that you can easily see it for what it is. This is a good essence to use if you have an illusive strand of fear from the past that you can’t quite identify or have an old situation that you can’t completely move past.

Polarity and separation have also left us with a legacy of beliefs that keep us feeling disempowered, unworthy, uncertain, angry, resentful, and judgemental. These are harsh vibrations, yet they form a part of many of our old patterns and will also keep us firmly in polarity consciousness until we make new choices.

When the energies are very volatile and unpredictable as they are at the moment we can sometimes find ourselves unexpectedly encountering some of these old energies so here are some essence combinations that will help you to release and move on: Inner Strength; restoring inner resolve, Feeling Worthy; transforming unworthiness, Inner Certainty; transforming doubt, Inner Peace; transforming anger, Self-Responsibility; transforming resentment, and Inner Freedom; transforming judgement.

Stepping Out of Old Agreements

To be able to successfully step out of the old agreements that are coming to an end rapidly now we need to give ourselves permission to step fully into our power and autonomy as a being.

This means that we have to let go of the need to be liked, the need to find love outside of ourselves and the need to fix others and their situations. These are all survival patterns that we have used because they have seemed to support us in the old world. This has never really been the case, but it is now becoming absolutely obvious that we cannot take these patterns forward with us.

Bringing balance to these old patterns will leave you stronger and more able to offer assistance that is truly meaningful to anyone around you who might be in need.

If you find yourself facing any of these issues this month then firstly check out the Solar Plexus Chakra combination which will help you to find greater balance and equilibrium. Other essences that might also be particularly helpful here are Letting Go; dissolving attachment and Auric Protection Spray; safe boundaries.

Freedom to be Yourself.

We are most connected to ourselves when we remember to move back into our hearts. Here we will find the freedom and wisdom that will allow us to express ourselves fully in the world as our true self. Here is a reminder of some essences that will help you to do this: Unconditional Love, Heart Connection Spray; living in love and Inner Wisdom; connecting heart & mind.

Hand-Picked Essences for June

The elemental energy of fire is reaching its zenith as we approach Summer Solstice on 21st June. The increase in daylight hours at this time of year provides us with an influx of light that affects us very deeply. This is the most yang time of the year where bright, active, outward energy is dominant so it’s a great time to notice what naturally brings feelings of inspiration, love, joy, passion and enthusiasm into your heart and let that expansive energy guide your actions.

We celebrate Father’s Day on 18th June which is a great opportunity to focus on your relationship with your father, and to explore your relationship with the ‘masculine’ in the wider sense. This month we’re recommending a flower essence for balancing masculine energy in your life and another for helping you to anchor more light in your system so you can shine your light in the world.


Male Essence - 10ml and 25ml bottles

Male Essence

This combination of flower, gem and crystal essences helps to strengthen and balance yang qualities, and clear old patterns and beliefs that prevent you from accepting this energy in yourself and others. This is a great essence to use if you find it difficult to express qualities that tend to be associated with the ‘masculine’ including logical thinking, taking action, strength and power. This is the essence to choose if you have a difficult relationship with your father, father figures or authority figures, or if you have negative perceptions about male energy that prevent you from integrating those aspects in your life.

Male Essence - for Strengthening The Inner Masculine


Inner Light Essences - 10ml and 25ml bottles and 30ml spray

Inner Light Essence

The Inner Light Essence helps you to integrate the increasing amount of high frequency photonic light that is currently being transmitted onto the planet to raise our consciousness. This is a great essence to take if you want to release patterns of density (e.g. fear, anger, guilt, despair, disempowerment) and expand your ability to shine your light in the world. Use the Inner Light Essence if you feel in need of some regenerative support and it will expand your capacity to anchor greater qualities of light. It works at an energetic and spiritual level to help to activate your dormant DNA and reconnect you to your multi-dimensional self for greater feelings of love, lightness, deep knowing, oneness and soul connection.

Inner Light Essence - for Opening to the Light

Always Useful Essences

These are the essences that people most often tell us they wouldn’t want to be without because they are so useful for balancing emotions, soothing the mind and uplifting the spirits.


Pine - Bach Flower Remedy - 10ml and 25ml bottles

Pine Bach Flower Remedy

Pine is the Bach Flower Remedy for restoring self worth and releasing feelings of guilt and shame.
Pine is very effective for restoring a positive inner sense of self worth and self respect. Signs that Pine essence would be helpful include feeling that there’s something wrong with you, feeling in the wrong, that you could have done better, or expecting to be punished. It’s a great essence to take if you feel unworthy and believe that others are more deserving, feel responsible for other’s mistakes, take the blame and apologise for things that are nothing to do with you, have a guilty conscience or strong ideas of sin, especially in regard to your sexuality.

Pine - for Self Worth and Self Respect


Heart Connection Spray bottle

Heart Connection Spray Essence

The Heart Connection Spray is an excellent choice if you are opening your heart to feel more love but find yourself getting in touch with uncomfortable old pain, hurt and emotions that prevent you from opening your heart to yourself or others. This spray holds a steady frequency of unconditional love and compassionate understanding so it helps you to meet all parts of yourself with an open heart and remember the love that is your true, divine nature.

Heart Connection Spray - for Living in Love


Revival Remedy Essence

Revival Remedy

Revival Remedy is a combination of Cherry Plum, Clematis, Impatiens, Rock Rose & Star of Bethlehem and was originally formulated by Dr Bach for use in situations requiring ‘emergency rescue’. It acts as a very swift emotional stabiliser in circumstances where there is much fear, panic, trauma, or other severe upset such as a serious accident or unexpected bereavement. It is also a very effective support for those less traumatic but still challenging events in life like exams, driving tests, visits to the dentist, presentations etc.

Hexahedron Essence: Foundations for Creativity in the New Earth

Hexahedron Essences - close up of labels

The Hexahedron Essence is really good if you feel the need for more focus and structure, or if it feels difficult for you to bring your creative ideas into physical reality. It’s also good if you feel ungrounded, disconnected or tense.  The Hexahedron (Cube) shape provides a structure within which creative intention can be brought into physical form, so this vibrational essence is a wonderful support for creative manifestation of any kind. You can find out more in our essence review here.
