Personally, I am more drawn towards flower essence, plant essence, and combination essence. For me, being around flowers and plants feels very healing. Therefore, I love going for walks/hikes outdoors to be surrounded by all the beauty that plants and flowers bring. I always feel my soul feel lighter after a nice walk outside, especially if I get to see a lot of beautiful flowers or trees. Even if I am in the worst mood or really sad, walking where my eyes get to take in the beauty of nature, I always feel better at the end of my walk.

I mentioned earlier that flower essence help with balancing the energy within the body. This includes your chakras and how they influence the mind, body, and spirit. I love that essences can assist the balancing of energy. It is important to understand each chakra and what it is connected to. This allows you to find an essence that is beneficial to that specific situation and energy of that chakra.
