Below you will find the positive and negative qualities attributed to each flower essence, organized by KUMARA blend. As you read through the descriptions of the essences within each blend, you'll begin to get a feel for the energetics which combine together to enhance the base energies of the scent's oil essence blend. The oil blends come in first, and when it is complete, I am directed to the flower essences to include. I do this with my eyes closed, feeling the energy of each bottle and allowing my intuition to guide me. It's always a delightful surprise to discover that I have selected flower essences that are highly supportive of the purpose and intent behind the oil blend!
