Welcome to Green Lynx Flower Essences! We are celebrating 18 years since we started Green Lynx Flower Essences and it has been an amazing journey thus far filled with medicine flowers, trees, shrubs, crystals, and wonderful customers like you. Thank you to all that have supported our work in these amazing realms. We have been blessed to have served and supported thousands of people and animals with our essences over the years and are filled with deep gratitude.
We are producers of high vibration flower essence solutions that are made here on our farm from plants and flowers raised using natural organic methods and made in pristine wild ecosystems nearby and some from afar.
We have nearly 400 mother essences from the garden, wildflowers, gems, trees, ocean, mountains, environments, and some truly unique essence offerings from England, Peru, Bolivia, Hawaii, Australia, Oman and from the deepest/oldest part of the pacific Ocean. *

What is a flower essence? Flower essences are potentized liquid solar infusions made from the energetic imprint of flowers, trees, gemstones, and other natural things. Each individual solution is offers us support and encouragement in an energetic way.
They are best when taken orally – under the tongue (careful not to touch your mouth).
They work best on the emotional and soul level, are gentle, powerful, but subtle.
Flower essences do not interfere with prescription drugs, are safe for children and pets.
Essences are scentless, preserved in a solution of 50% brandy or vinegar.
Dr Edward Bach was the first western person to make and use flower essences back in the 1930s.
Today there are many people and companies that make flower essences all over the world.
I began working with them in the early 90s through a friend in my woman’s circle who was a Bach Remedy practitioner and sales rep.
I made my first essences in 1996 and the first ones were of a wild California rose, and an antique tea rose from a friends garden in Fallbrook CA.
I found them to be generously soothing to my broken shattered heart at that time. I had been grieving over the deaths of 3 dear family members within a few short weeks-(my grandmother who helped raise me, my 19 year old brother, and then our ancient family dog. This was all during my astrologic transition known as the Saturn return (a classic right of passage) mine was really intense.
Needless to say I was pretty shattered and these rose essences (little did I know at the time), would set me in a whole new course in my life one that is still unfolding.
This was a start of my journey making flower essences.
*Flower essences are not a cure all nor a drug to address a symptom, they need your willingness to work out an issue and assist by opening up channels in the subtle and emotional body. Yes.. You must do the work; whatever that is for you.
What Flower essences are not:
They are not the same or made the same as herbal tinctures, sometimes called herbal botanical extracts that are for the physical body whereas flower essences work on the spirit and emotional body of a person or animal. We as living beings are really not divided into physical, mental, emotional, spiritual bodies but all of these are profoundly connected and interdependent ecosystems of a larger being. Where one connection is weakened the entire being can be weakened. Flower essences are also not essential oils (therefore have no scent), and they are not aromatic plant or flower hydosols (plant distillates).
Our apothecary page offers a range of herbal botanical extracts (tinctures), hydrosols(plant distillates), essential oils and other non flower essence offerings.
*Always see your qualified medical provider.
