Your Essence Essentials for the Month
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.
Scleranthus Bach Flower Remedy for Librans
We are in Libran season, Dr Bach’s own astrological sign and the one that he felt would most benefit from Scleranthus essence. Diplomatic and charming with a strong sense of justice, Librans naturally seek harmony, fairness and balance. However, their ability to see all sides of a story coupled with their dislike of conflict can make it difficult for them to make decisions that serve their own highest good. If your sun or moon is in Libra, Scleranthus will be a great choice to balance your energy.
Listen to Your Inner Voice
Do you get immobilised by indecision and waste time weighing up all the options instead of trusting your intuition? Do you regularly swing from one decision to another entirely different one, unable to find your own centre? Do you experience strong mood swings and can be laughing one moment then tearful the next?
The soul journey for Librans is to find the state of balance that comes from being in harmony with your own inner guidance. Scleranthus essence will help you to listen to your inner voice so you can make empowered choices, instead of making decisions to keep the peace in your relationships or because they make sense to your rational mind.
Team Choice - Balancing The Male Energy
Each month one of the Crystal Herbs team shares which essence they're taking and why. This month Sam looks at the Sunflower Essence and why it's so important for right now....
Sunflower is one of my favourite essences for working with any aspects of out of balance male energy. The radiant energy of sunflower is all about empowerment from the heart, helping you to feel more confident, assured and self-empowered. It does this by helping you to balance your inner male aspect, helping to harmonise old unbalanced male energy patterns such as control, anger or hostility around the father figure or authority figures more generally. As these old patterns transform it allows you to step more solidly and firmly into your own empowered state and more confidently into your heart. It’s just such an important and relevant essence right now, with so many out of balance male energy patterns playing out in the world, causing many of the problems that we are seeing at the moment. So if any of these issues resonant with you, then this is definitely one to try! Sam Cremnitz
Sunflower Essence - Healthy masculine, wisdom, power, authority
Hand-Picked Essences for September
September is often a month of transition, with many people taking stock and contemplating next steps. There is a noticeable seasonal shift in many parts of the world, and going back to work, school or college after the holidays can be quite a change of pace and expectation.
The Autumn Equinox on 23rd September in the northern hemisphere is when our energies and energetic focus begin to go more inwards. This can be a powerful, nurturing and contemplative time and a space in which to enjoy the 'harvest' of our inner work and connect with our divine abundance.
We’ve hand-picked two essences that are particularly useful for this time of year:
Walnut - Bach Flower Remedy
Walnut is a great essence for flexibility and adjusting to change since it eases transitions of any kind. It is helpful for children starting a new school or adults starting a new course as well as for anyone who’s adjusting to a new year at an existing school or college. It will also help you to embrace change on any level so you can let go of the past and energise new dreams, goals and plans.
Walnut Remedy - for change & transition
Angel of Abundance Essence
The Angel of Abundance will help you to remember that you live in an abundant universe, and that you are part of the flow of divine universal energy, within which there is plenty for everyone. The vibrational quality of abundance feels generous, expansive and loving, so working with the Angel of Abundance will help you to experience more of these qualities in your heart and your energy field, attracting more of the same. The Angel of Abundance essence will help you to feel abundant in heart and generous in spirit so you can release feelings of lack or fear about not having enough. Allow it to expand your capacity to give and receive fully and freely, knowing that the divine is the source of all.
Angel of Abundance Essence - for a prosperous life
Essence Suggestions from September's Edition of E-Light
The energies this month have a very definite focus on waking us up and helping us to fully shake off the dis-empowering malaise of many lifetimes lived in the separation of a third dimensional reality. Flower, gem and crystal essences are wonderful tools to help support you through the process of awakening in all of its many forms.
When you feel stuck, they will gently ease you past the resistance by dissolving some of the old energies holding the ‘story’ in place. When you need help to raise your vibrational frequency or connect with your higher guidance, they will support you with that. If you need to clear your chakras, improve your grounding, open your heart or deal with unexpected trauma, there will be an essence or essence combination that can help you with what you are facing.
Upgrade Your Chakras
Our lower chakras are being particularly impacted at the moment as they have to constantly adjust to make sure that we have adequate foundations for our awakening consciousness.
If you come across an old ‘story’ that’s causing you a problem this month, it’s likely that you will find an imprint in one of the lower chakras that needs your attention.
- Base Chakra; anything to do with your physical wellbeing & security, functioning in the everyday world, fears, stability, and grounding.
- Sacral Chakra; anything to do with balance in relationships, emotional stability, creativity, and self-acceptance.
- Solar Plexus Chakra; anything to do with personal power and will, self-definition, boundaries, and positive emotional expression.
- Heart Chakra; anything to do with connectedness, unconditional loving relationships, trust, and inner peace.
Focus on Relationships
Big changes are often reflected in our relationships, especially with those we are closest to. Here are two essence combinations that might be particularly helpful if you’re dealing with relationship issues this month.
- Loving Communication; honest self-expression for those times when you need to express something that is important to you in a loving and honest way.
- Healing Relationships; restoring intimacy & trust, when painful old memories from the past are blocking your ability to be fully present and loving in your current relationship.
Such an important theme this one! Virgo energies can sometimes illuminate our inner critic in uncomfortable ways, so do be on the look out for any threads of this going on in your awareness over the next few weeks.
It is very hard to make positive changes within ourselves if we are criticising and judging ourselves for what we wish to release. If you are being self-critical or judgemental, an Inner Freedom; transforming judgement or a Self-Acceptance; restoring unconditionality combination would quickly help you find a more loving space for yourself.
Lastly this month, we recommend Inner Light; opening to the light to provide stability and ease that sense of disorientation that can occur when your rapidly expanding awareness takes you beyond a previous comfort zone.
- Inner Freedom; transforming judgement
- Self-Acceptance; restoring unconditionality
- Inner Light; 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.
Positive Vibrations Essence Spray
The Positive Vibrations spray is all about cleansing and purification of your energetic space. So you can use it to cleanse and purify your personal energy field of negative thoughts, feelings or beliefs and you can use it as a space clearing spray for your living or workspace. We find this an incredibly useful essence to use both personally and here at Crystal Herbs to ensure that our energetic space is as clear and aligned as possible.
Positive Vibrations Essence Spray | Pure Vibrations Collection
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.

Bach Flower Remedies for Astrology
Did you know that there’s a Bach Flower Remedy for each of the 12 astrological signs? Towards the end of his life, Dr Bach began exploring the link between the first 12 essences he discovered (The Twelve Healers) and the 12 astrological signs. Dr Bach believed that the sign the moon was in at the time of birth was significant, while other flower essence experts including Shimara Kumara who first set up Crystal Herbs have explored the relevance of the astrological sign the sun was in at the time of birth (commonly known as your Star Sign).
