Integrating mind, body, and spirit for complete wellness
MENTAL & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT*
Humans have always used flowers and herbs for health restoration. Their unique beneficial qualities (i.e. phytochemicals) can be uniquely distilled to create tinctures, essential oils, and flower essences.
FLOWER ESSENCES are not perfumes, essential oils or tinctures. An essence works as support on the mental and emotional level and can be part of a personal spiritual practice.
Like tinctures, flower essences are often ingested by placing drops under the tongue, or diffused with water to be sipped.
CREATING FLOWER ESSENCES AT CORTESIA SANCTUARY
The craft of making flower essences is centuries old. The process may be different for each practitioner. The best essences are derived from the flower itself, not merely by “angelic” divination.
Most of the flowers are organically grown in our 2-acre garden or wildcrafted from surrounding forests and meadows at the beautiful 22-acre Cortesia Sanctuary.
Only one or two especially fine blossoms among many of one variety are used to create a flower essence.
Each flower is carefully and lovingly selected for optimal potency. The resulting blend of flower essences has grown out of much meditation and soulful reflection on the human condition: the needs and aspirations we each have.
The essences are prepared using non-treated water and preserved for freshness with the finest brandy available (this accounts for the slight taste when taken).

CORTESIA FLOWER ESSENCE BLENDS
It is important to know that Cortesia Flower Essences are blends of the essences of 5-7 different flowers. They are not concentrated stock solutions.
Cortesia Flower Essences are in 1oz (30ml) dosage bottles and should not be further diluted or rebottled (unless drops are used in a glass of water). A detailed description of the historically honored qualities of each flower of a blend is noted on the label.
