Frequently Asked Questions
Flower essences are one of Nature’s most potent healing remedies and a profound form of energy medicine. They are natural healing agents that work in your subtle-energy system. They have long been part of the traditions of Earth-based and Shamanic healing. From Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to the Aborigines of Australia, civilizations around the world have revered the power of flowers and used flower remedies for emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. Paracelsus, the 15th century botanist and physician, wrote specifically about collecting dew from flowering plants, diluting it, and using the liquid to treat imbalances in his patients. Dr. Edward Bach, a British pathologist and bacteriologist, introduced flower essences in modern times. He discovered a correlation between emotional issues and illness and turned to nature in a quest to discover how to treat the person rather than the illness. In 1928, he developed the first of his flower remedies.
In recent times, this ancient modality has experienced a significant evolution, with pioneers in the fields of Nature research and vibrational healing taking the lead in creating innovative flower essences to support people to survive and thrive amidst our global epidemic of economic, health and social challenges. As our individual and collective challenges intensify, many people are turning to the intelligence inherent in Nature to guide us to solutions to our most perplexing issues.

Dr. Schotte makes all the Mother Tincture for the La Vie de la Rose flower essences from blossoms grown in the Garden of Love. She chooses blossoms at peak potency and immerses the petals in water, sits the solution in the sun for several hours, removes the petals, and stabilizes the solution with the highest quality brandy on the market.
Dr. Schotte’s partner works with her in this Mother Tincture process. He brings the Sacred Masculine to the process, and she brings the Sacred Feminine. Their sacred marriage brings the dynamic of spiritual partnership and the balance of the masculine and feminine to the energetics of the Mother Tincture.
In addition, through decades of research and clinical work, Dr. Schotte has developed a proprietary production process to increase the vibratory rate of our Mother Tincture and hence the potency of our flower essences.
We age our Mother Tincture for a year and a day: a complete solar cycle. As with fine wine, aging enhances the Mother Tincture, and it supports stabilization of the healing generated by our flower essences. This step is unique to La Vie de la Rose.
We produce our flower essences from Mother Tincture produced from blossoms grown in the Garden of Love.
Our flower essences hold unique healing patterns. They work through your nervous system to catalyze transformation of your consciousness through the spiritual plane of existence. Their unprecedented vibratory rate allows them to access this plane of existence and through the Law of Correspondences, i.e., as above so below, their trans-mutational effect translates to your spiritual, mental, emotional and physical bodies.
We recommend you take one drop to one dropperful, depending on the level of activation and support you desire, daily, for an extended period because the effect of our flower essences is cumulative. How long? It depends on what you want to achieve. The patterns in our flower essences are complex and they work on a band of consciousness that ensures they continue to support you throughout your spiritual journey. So, you could take them for the duration of your life if you desired.
Keep in mind that flower essences are not like allopathic medicine. Taking a flower essence is not like taking a pill. Our flower essences catalyze deep healing that begins beneath your awareness. When you apply consciousness to the healing underway, i.e., you take part in your healing, then you are co-creating your life with Nature (through the flower essences) and Spirit (through our affirmations).
You can deepen and quicken the effect of our flower essence work by developing your subtle-energy system.
From our five-sensory awareness, we appear to be housed in a single body, the dense physical body. From our multi-sensory awareness, we realize we are multi-body constructs.
"The concept of multi-layered body systems connected to, yet separate from, the dense physical body may seem foreign or even inconceivable to many people. In various older systems of teaching, such as the Hindu Ayurvedic system, Theosophy, and other esoteric schools of the Ancient Wisdom, the finer frequencies, known as planes or bodies outside of the dense physical body, are well-documented and accepted as fact. These finer frequency bodies, or subtle bodies are actually distinct vibrational fields extending outward from the dense physical body."
~ Mikio Sankey, Ph.D., L.Ac., Esoteric Acupuncture: Gateway to Expanded Healing, Volume I, Mountain Castle Publishing, (L.A, California,1999), 47.
There are different schools of thought relating to the multi-level bodies. Most agree that in addition to a dense physical body, there is an etheric, astral, mental, causal, and spiritual body, each one extending beyond and including the prior bodies. Each body corresponds with planes of existence. In Yogic philosophy the focal point of the subtle-energy system are chakras connected by channels called nadis. In Taoism the focal point are acupressure points that run along energy lines called meridians. These ancient systems are well-documented and have even been studied in Western medicine. Their validity has supported the movement towards complementary and alternative medicine.
There are many practices that support you to develop your subtle-energy system:
- Adopt a regular spiritual practice, e.g., chanting, empowered prayer, meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, etc.
- Choose relationships that are honoring, loving and respectful and end those that are not.
- Eat according to your Genotype (Learn More >>)
- Eat lots of raw food (Learn More >>)
- Avoid sugar, processed foods, PUFA seed oils (Learn More >>), hormone laden poultry and meat, fish with mercury, farm-raised salmon, etc.
- Avoid lectins (Learn More>>)
- Taking La Vie de la Rose flower essences increases the clarity of your subtle-energy system over time because they catalyze and support spiritual detoxification through purification of the heart center.
Your level of sensitivity affects your ability to perceive the effects of flower essences. Any steps you take to evolve your subtle-energy system will increase your sensitivity.
Also, to become aware of the effects of flower essences, it is important to familiarize yourself with their healing properties. Saying the corresponding affirmations when you take flower essences reminds you of their healing purposes. It also supports you to deepen your healing experience. Keeping a journal in which you record your feelings, thoughts, and life events while you take our flower essences will assist you to notice how things are changing for you. Joining a support group of other flower essence users is also useful. As you hear others’ stories, you expand your awareness of the potential effects of the flower essences you are taking.
A woman was taking some of our flower essences for several months when I asked her what changes she had noticed. She said she had not noticed anything. Then I talked to her about what was happening in her life. She had quit her job, started a business, and separated from her husband of 30 years, telling him she would not come back home until he quit drinking. She had no idea that such changes, which she had wanted to make for so long, were related to her use of our flower essences.
Store flower essences out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
Avoid touching the dropper with your hand or tongue. If you do, rinse it under running water before returning it to the bottle.
