The effectiveness of flower essences is not increased by increasing the dose, it is made effective by frequent and consistent use.

Use Frequency for Acute Care

You may use a remedy more frequently during more intense times in which your issue is manifesting. Some examples: if you are taking a remedy for loss and are having an especially hard afternoon; you are in labor and a remedy is helping you to move through a strong emotion or intense phase of birth; you are in an emergency situation or under a lot of situational stress, and the remedy is helping you move through that. Take up to once every 10 minutes.

How Long to Use a Remedy

The most common time span for using a remedy is roughly one month, though many people often see a first shift within the first 3 to 5 days and another noticeable shift at two weeks. Some people feel better instantly.

After this time, it is a good idea to ask your practitioner to reevaluate you to see if you should repeat the same formula or re-formulate it based on the changes that you’ve experienced.

Enhancing the Effects

While the remedies will work as they are, you can amplify their effects (and/or heighten your awareness of their effects) by:

  • setting an intention/stating an affirmation just before you take a remedy and having a moment of stillness after you take it to witness the effects and/or offer gratitude;
  • keeping a journal of your experiences and dreams while on a remedy;
  • making your preferred kind of art (painting, drawing, writing, etc) throughout the time you use the essence and noticing the changes as you work with a remedy.
