Indigo Essences - Your 'Emotional First Aid Kit'
Crystal Essences in Dropper Bottles or Room Sprays to help re-balance energy and restore feelings of calm.
A ‘First Aid Kit for Feelings’.
Ex homeopath Ann Callaghan created these gem essences to address most of the common emotional disturbances of childhood, and they are especially formulated with the needs of sensitive children in mind.
Some may have a very difficult time integrating with others, both at home and in school. Many have very strong energy and definite views about life, which can be challenging both for the children and for their care givers. Ann says "One of the biggest problems for children is not being listened to and understood, which in turn leads to the children resorting to more extreme behaviours to try and get their point across.” If you are having a stressful time at home a combination of good communication and these essences will help to move energy very quickly.
HOW TO USE ESSENCES
You can buy the essences in drop form or in spray form. The drops can be added to glasses of water or juice, into the bath, added to creams etc. The spray form is great for spraying around a room. It acts like an energetic air conditioner and brings the energy of whichever spray you're using right into the immediate environment
Choose a quiet time to sit down and talk about whatever situation has arisen. Let the child know this means that you both have a problem, and you'd like to find a way to solve it. Ask your child if they would like to choose an essence for themselves. Then you choose one for yourself too! It is important that the adult is part of the healing process. Most importantly, allow the child to tell you how they are feeling. No interruption, problem-solving or judgement. You need to STAY QUIET until they have finished talking (Not easy!).
WHAT ESSENCES ARE MADE OF
Essences contain the energy pattern of the mineral they are made from, held in water with a preservative to keep it from going off. Indigo Essences are preserved in Vodka. It holds the energy of the essence very clearly and has a long shelf life. The 15 ml bottle is a concentrate and should be diluted by adding a drop or more of the essence to a glass of water which can then be sipped as necessary.
