Lay the cards out in front of you and gaze at them. Through your eyes,
you connect to your subconscious. Notice the card to which you feel most
drawn – this essence corresponds to the process ongoing in your
consciousness and will support you through this process. Notice the card
by which you are repelled – this essence corresponds to the process
ongoing in your subconscious.
Which test methods
Radiesthesia – the use of a pendulum. Hold your pendulum over the essence
bottle or essence name and check if there is a resonance (attraction)
between the person you are testing and the essence.
Biotensor – selection
works like the pendulum
(applied Kinesiology) – 2 people are required
By checking muscle strength while holding an essence, one can determine
if the essence is useful to the body.
Pulse testing is
certainly the most reliable test – 2 people are required
Touch the essence bottle to the person’s skin while checking the pulse.
If, when quickly pulling the essence away, the pulse beats more intensely
for at least 7 beats, the body is communicating that the essence is
suitable. (The stronger the pulse beat, the greater that essence’s
importance to the body.)
Where can I learn
Basic workshops are scheduled regularly. Please check the Workshops /
Storage and Shelf
Although the stock essence bottles are stamped with a 10-year expiration
date, they are usable practically indefinitely. For example, I have a bottle
from Dr. Bach (really true) that is over 70 years old and is still very
The best storage
conditions are in the original packaging, in a protected, cool place (not
in the refrigerator) and, if possible, away from electrical devices.
When using the
essence, take care to avoid touching the dropper to any surface. Close
the bottle securely.
exposure to heat.
If you have worked
intensively with an essence bottle (i.e., have held it in your hand for
an extended time), reactivate the essence by briefly shaking it and
letting it rest.
Method suits me best?
After you have selected the essences, you can decide on the best method
This is the traditional, most recognized, method. The rule of thumb is to
take 2 drops of the stock essence in the morning and 2 drops in the
evening. The essence is absorbed through the mouth’s mucous membrane.
This method is well suited to children or those sensitive to alcohol.
This method is also the
best method for using essences with acute symptoms or for taking RQ5
(Rescue Remedy) or RQ7 (improved Rescue Remedy).
Place 2 drops from
the stock essence bottle in a glass of water and sip it over the next
half to one hour. You can repeat this up to 5 times per day, if needed,
for 2 to 3 days.
Diluting the Essences
You can dilute the stock essences by placing several drops in a mixture
of water and alcohol.
mixture: ¾ water, ¼ alcohol, and 4 drops of stock essence in a
small bottle (1 ounce or 30 ml works well)
For a diluted
essence, increase your usage to 4 drops, twice daily.
Mix essences by using
as little as possible, and as much as necessary. The less you mix, the
clearer the effect of the individual essences.
Due to their high
frequency, you should only mix orchids with other orchids.
For external use, you
can mix the essences in body oil, hair rinse, bath water, or creams. PHI
Essences offers 5 different creams into which you can also mix other
essences you have selected.
Just as through the mouth’s mucous membrane, the essences are also
absorbed through the skin. You can apply the essences undiluted or
diluted in water, mixed into a cream or body lotion, applied with a
compress, or added to your bath water.
In this way, you can
apply the essence to unhealthy skin areas or old scars, as well as the
underlying tissues such as connective tissue, muscles, nerves, and blood
vessels. Application to reflex zones, chakras, meridians, or acupressure
points has proven especially beneficial. When using the appropriate
essence, the flow of energy in your entire body is harmonized, and the
functions of your organs are strengthened.
TIP: It can be
helpful in a variety of situations to carry the appropriate essence
bottle in your hand or place it on your body. This is especially true for
the RQ7 Rescue Essence.
Compresses are often useful for burns,
insect bites, bruises, or skin irritations from neurodermatitis. Avoid
contact with open wounds. To a small bowl containing about 250 ml (about
1 cup) of water, add 4 drops of each selected essence. Soak a thin cloth
in the water and lay it on the affected area for about 10 minutes. In
acute cases, you may repeat the application until symptoms are
Full-body baths are especially useful after a
strenuous day. Place 4 drops of each selected essence in the bath water
and enjoy your bath in comfortable water.
TIP: Enjoy a bath
with Delph® essence in the bath water while listening to relaxing music
in the background.
Room Sprays are an ideal use of essences.
PHI Essences offers 3 pre-mixed sprays. You can also add other essences
that you may have selected to the spray bottle.
New Holistic Light
Treatment in combination with essences (HLT)
This unique method combines the action of the essences with the
corresponding light, color, and sound frequency. Since the year 2000, PHI
Essences has been developing this method, which has achieved outstanding
results. More information is available at www.health-houses.com.
Even after long-term use of the essences, you will not become dependent
on them as some people fear. It is a very natural thing to find that your
essence bottle is very important to you at the beginning. The better you
start to feel after taking it for a while, the less you will think of it.
When you have forgotten to use the essence, then you usually no longer
“Miracles take somewhat longer”, so please don’t expect all of your
difficulties to evaporate into thin air overnight! After all, this is not
about relieving symptoms, but about a long-term therapy that removes
layer upon layer of problems to reach the inner core.
without their Knowledge?
Repeatedly, customers ask the following question. “My husband really
needs this essence; can I mix it in his coffee?” The answer is absolutely
not! It is always important to respect other’s free will. When you have
an experience in which you clearly see how you can help someone, you may
offer that help. However, you must also respect the other person’s choice
to follow your suggestion or not.
other Treatment Methods?
Essences are natural products without side effects. Therefore, you can
easily combine them with other treatments. They complement other
treatments in that they support the natural healing process.
In our opinion,
homeopathy and flower essences complement each other very well. The
flower essences can minimize the initial reaction that sometimes occurs
with homeopathic treatment. Simultaneous treatment should address similar
The T1 essence used together with the Delph® essence helps guide
radioactive isotopes out of the body. Many measurements with Geiger counters
and patient reports have indicated this. You can use the essences after
any exposure to radiation or after each chemotherapy treatment.
Sit in a chair, and
take off your shoes. Place the T1 essence bottle between your feet so
that both feet touch it. Hold the Delph® bottle in your hand and hold it
for 1 minute as far above your head as you can reach. Slowly, bring the
Delph bottle down the front of your body, following the cleansing process
occurring in your energy field, all the way to the tips of your feet.
This takes about 10 minutes. You can use a Geiger counter to check the
process since radiation cannot be seen or felt.
Cleanse the bottles
after each use. You can either shake the bottles and blow forcefully over
them or hold them for 10 minutes under running water.
The effect of the essences is especially noticeable when used on animals.
Often, animals sense intuitively which essence they need. Otherwise, use
your pendulum to select the necessary essences. Put 2 to 4 drops of the
essence in their water bowl or let the animal lick it from your palm. You
will be surprised at how quickly the essences take effect.
TIP: Near Winterthur,
Switzerland, instead of chemicals, Deva Orchid and K9 essences were
applied to fruit trees. The treated trees were resistant to all diseases
whereas the untreated trees in the neighborhood became diseased. For
agricultural applications, this treatment method is cost-effective and
free of side effects.
You can also use the essences on your houseplants or plants in your
garden. As with animals, test which essences the plants need. Place 4
drops in a liter of water. You can either spray or water your plants with
