Our one-on-one flower and gem essence consultations are all held by our founder and herbalist Ava Zhan. The consultations are confidential and conducted via e-mail, phone, or a video call (your choice) to establish the areas of body or aura weakness if any are present, or to discuss one's perceived blocks, blockages, or personal desires for becoming more spiritually attuned, more nature attuned, or say, a more patient parent or a stronger, more tuned-in healer. The private consultations are described in detail here.
On this page, you have the option of ordering your custom essence blend made into an aura mist. Aura mists are essences in a convenient mist format. Our aura mists are concentrated blends of flower and gem essences preserved by high-quality brandy. To benefit maximally, mist a few times into the air in a space of your choice or above your head three or more times a day, or use on an as-needed basis.
Aura mists are not aromatherapy sprays and they are traditionally prepared without adding essential oils to them (they smell faintly of brandy, and the scent dissipates very quickly). For clients who enjoy scented aura mists, per request Ava can add therapeutic-grade organic or wildcrafted essential oils or absolutes, such as frankincense sacra, lemon peel, palo santo, goldenrod, Moroccan cedar, French lavender, Indian rose absolute, or others.
Ava has been a huge help, with a very clear intellect and offering of knowledge when it comes to formulating her essences. She has been incredibly thorough and easy to work with, open to answering any questions and admirably following her intuition when selecting the correct essence for myself and my family. I fully trust Ava and her abilities with flower and gem essences and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. I wouldn't use anyone else.-Brigid Sandell
Purchase the package of your choice and Ava will contact you via e-mail to set up a mutually convenient day and time to have the consultation. After the consultation, Ava will usually take one to three days to decide on your blend.
The e-mail consultation involves several back-and-forths via e-mail—as many as needed to give Ava a thorough understanding of your needs and state of health, and to allow you and Ava to agree on the priorities and the direction of your treatment. Feel free to write long e-mails to describe your situation in depth.
Your blend may be composed of flower and gem essences from our own Pacific Northwest essences prepared by Ava, or it may include essences we purchase from other well-established essence companies. The essence systems that Ava studied over a long period of time and uses in her practice are Alaskan Essences, Delta Gardens, Australian Bush Flower Essences, Living Tree Orchid Essences, Mushroom Essences, and Himalayan Essences. It is of tremendous benefit to a client to work with a practitioner versed in more than one system, as no one set of flowers from a particular region or maker addresses every condition or need.
What this also means for you, the client, is that Ava has a gigantic repertory of essences (hundreds of essences) to choose from for your concerns and health conditions. This also means that you could specify if you are particularly drawn to Alaskan wilderness and energy, to essences that Ava made herself from the wildflowers of Washington, or maybe to orchids. If there is a group of flowers or plants or a particular species that you are keenly drawn to, mention it during your conversation or e-mail exchange with Ava.
