This is a new chapter at DOROTAO: flower essences. Although it is not new to Chinese Medicine. Tuning into plants for their energetic qualities was where it all started. The millennial herbal traditions in Chinese Medicine are based on Taoists' knowledge of plants acquired through deep contemplation and observation of both plants and their effects on a human body, mind and spirit.
I prepare the flower essences following specific indications and tuning myself into these plants to receive their messages. That is why some of my indications for the use of the Sweet Violet Flower Essence may differ to what you may read in other sources.
