Vetus Via means "Old Way" and flower essences are made through the ancient process of alchemy that converts energy from one form to another. Flower essences hold the unique energetic qualities of each plant in a form that can be imbibed and recieved by the human bio-system. Plants and people co-evolved, as has all life on Earth, and all living things contain the basic elements and molecules of matter in different proportions and arrangements. The individual characteristics of each plant species corresponds in some manner to human qualities, conditions, illnesses, creative genius and all possible potentials. We use flower essences to activate the innate healing and evolutionary processes within us on an emotional, spiritual and even physical level.

Planetary Essences

Plants, planets and healing have been interconnected throughout history. The early beginnings of modern herbalism were recorded by Nicholas Culpeper, an herbalist and astrologer who recognized the co-evolutionary similarities between the movements and patterns of the 'heavenly bodies' and the form and energy of the plants. The following flower essences were created based on my lifelong practice and study of both astrology and flower essences.
