Newsletter April 2020
During this period of confinement which is affecting the majority of the population in Europe and North America, we are receiving lots of advice over the internet and through the various newsletters that we subscribe to about the importance of strengthening our immune system and the various vitamins, minerals and food supplements that can help us achieve this. While this is valuable information it is important to remember that the health of our immune system is also closely related to the state of our emotions. In particular negative emotions such as fear, anger, anxiety and stress can have a weakening affect on our immune system.
And clearly fear is the emotion most prevalent in this crisis. Various Rescue Remedy-type essences are important for helping alleviate fear and deal with the shock of the pandemic. They also help us remain grounded, centred and calm. Here is a list of these essences: Alaska: Soul support and Soul Support Spray; Australian Bush: Emergency Essence, Emergency Essence Oral Spray, Emergency Mist, Emergency cream; DEVA: Assistance and Assistance Spray; Green Hope Farm: Emergency Care; Pacific: Balancer and Balancer Spray; Spirit-in-Nature: Pear; South Africa: Crisis Remedy; Wild Earth: Saved by the animals
Philippe Deroide, one of the pillars of the flower essence community and the founder of Laboratoire DEVA particularly recommends the essence Angélique. It is for those who feel isolated and abandoned. It brings strength, protection and confidence and helps vanquish the fear of contagion that is prevalent during pandemics. This is a major essence for crisis and anytime when one's life is in danger. It reinforces trust in life and confers strength and moral vigour when faced with an uncertain future. Angelica is also made by Alaskan Essences and is a key ingredient in Calling All Angels and Calling All Angels Spray.
Confinement for many people means living together in a fairly restricted space. This makes it all the more important to adopt a practice of energetic hygiene as well as physical hygiene. Energetic hygiene is comprised of four separate but related aspects: handling shock (see above), energetic protection, cleaning the aura and clearing the energy of our home environment. See the article on energetic hygiene on our website which lists the essences that can help in each of these categories
It is important to clean the energy of one's house or apartment during confinement, particularly if you have parents, children and pets all living, working, and studying together. Any interpersonal tensions as well as all the negative news coming from television or internet programmes create an emotional charge of energetic pollution that can make relations more difficult. The most popular space clearing products are: Clear Sky, Purification Spray, Space Clearing Mist. I also highly recommend the other Alaskan sacred space sprays (Guardian Spray, Lighten Up Spray, Calling all Angels Spray) also available as a set of 4.
Communications can become frayed when we are forced to live in close quarters under such difficult circumstances. Essences like Unité familiale, Relationship, and Beyond Words can help us to understand each other and feel able to express our feelings in a heartfelt manner, as well as better listen to others. Protection essences can also help us to maintain healthy boundaries with family members who can so easily push our buttons.
Many women may find Raccoon particularly helpful at this time for moving with gentleness and ease between life's many roles - (i.e. mother, wife, employee, sister, etc). Dynamis can help restore enthusiasm and joy as can Alpine Mint Bush. Essences such as Pacific Dolphin, Wild Earth Dolphin and Dolphin/Joy spray, and Retriever can enhance feelings of joy, laughter and compassion for ourselves and others.
To help children with the change from classroom to home school, try spraying the room with Easy Learning Spray and/or using some of the study essences: Easy learning, Optimal Learning, Etudes et examens, Study essence. These same essences may also help parents who are working from home to increase their concentration and focus.
And don't forget our animal friends who are also confined. They will be sensing all the emotions of the household. Keeping the energy of the house energetically clean will help them, as well as animal emergency care, animal care or animal care spray and balancer spray.
These are just a few of the ways that essences can be of use to you and your family during the next weeks (months..). They can help you hold steady and keep an open heart during these difficult times. Take care, stay zen.
Fleurs de Vie's office remains open at its usual time (8.30 - 12.30 Monday to Friday). I am often in the office from 4 to 6 pm as well. Our website in always available.
As for delivery, the Post Office is now operating three days a week - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Therefore it will take longer than usual for you to receive your orders.
I am grateful that we are still able to get essences to you, as they can be very helpful, on many levels, during this time.

During the month of April take advantage of our special 15% reduction on all of the Wild Earth Animal Essences. Good for internet orders only, while stocks last.
These essences are created by Daniel Mapel in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, USA since 1995. According to Daniel animal essences help us go deeper into ourselves and heal our emotional wounds. They help everyone to find his connection with the Earth and with his deep inner Being. Each essence contains the energetic imprint of the animal but no animal is captured or injured in the process.
The range includes a set of baby animal essences, The Wild Child essences, which deal with issues for children and for the inner child issues faced by adults. There is also a set of Healing Path essences and Daniel's newest additions - the Inner Dog essences.
