The “Super Essences” - an Introduction
“A New Slant on a Well-Established Therapy”
The conventional way of using flower essences and gem essences is to mix into a bottle
as many of the essences that are needed. This is the system that I had always
used, as taught to me by Mary Garbely, (Mary was my original teacher of flower essences)
and also as recommended by Machaelle
Small Wright of Perelandra, and by many others.
This system works well, but it does have its limitations and drawbacks:
There is a limit to the number of individual essences that can be mixed
together into one mix.
In order to be equipped to fully cover all of the issues that may need
treatment, a flower essence practitioner needs to have a fairly large number of
individual essences in her kit. For the New Millennium Essences (the
essences, that is), a typical number would be at least one hundred. This
represents a very large commitment both in terms of time and energy to become
familiar with all these individual essences, and in financial investment.
The above is one of the reasons that flower and gem essence therapy has not
“taken off” in a really major way. The thought of making such a big
commitment by purchasing and becoming familiar with a kit of over one hundred
remedies is just too daunting for most people.....
Over the years, I have pondered the implications of the above. It annoyed me
that here we have one of the most powerful and versatile therapies on Earth,
and yet, despite the untiring efforts, over many years, of many good people in
promoting essence therapy, people like Mary Garbely and Machaelle Small Wright,
flower and gem essences remain one of the “best-kept secrets” of the
natural healing world.
I have often thought that “there has to be an answer to this! We need a
new way of working with essences”.
Well, someone must have heard me, because, in October 2000, the answer
finally came to me, and I was provided with the necessary tools to overcome
these limitations that seemed to be inherent in essence work.....
It came in a flash of inspiration, as such breakthroughs usually do.
It was during the spiritual fair in New Plymouth, at Labour Weekend, 2000.
It came as I was pondering this dilemma.... suddenly, I “saw” the
The key to resolving this issue was to combine the individual essences into
little “groups” of essences, with several individual essences mixed
together in the one bottle making up each “group”. And, instead of
supplying essence practitioners with a large number of bottles of
stock-strength individual essences, a much smaller number of bottles (stock
strength) of these “groups” of essences would make up a full essence
Now, there is nothing totally new about this idea. Mixtures of essences like
these have been around for years..... but they never seem to have “taken
So, what would be different about the New Millennium mini-mixes?
These Essence Mixes are a lot “Different”.....
In the car on the way home, driving from New Plymouth to Hawkes Bay, I
continued to ponder this, and the picture gradually came clear to me as to how
this would work. What was needed was some “linkage energies”.
These linkage energies would provide the “missing ingredient”,
allowing each little “group” essence (or, “Super-Essence”,
as I was by now calling them), to energetically hold its own identity, even
when mixed together in a single bottle with other “Super-Essences”.
And, as always, Nature provided what was needed.... as soon as asked. I was
drawn to visit a beach in West Taranaki, and there on the beach I found the
stones which held the energies of the “linkage essences”.
Note that from February 2002, a new updated version of the “linkage”
energy was provided, in the form of the new
White Magnolia flower essence, and that from February 2002 it is this
White Magnolia that is supplied as the linkage essence with all of the New Millennium
As soon as I arrived home from that inspiring weekend,
I got straight to work on defining the “Super
Essences” themselves. Each “Super-Essence” would be identified
by the name of the issue that it is for treating. For example, the Super
Essence for treating all aspects of the issue of abundance would be known as
The Super-Essence for treating all types of depression would be known simply as
Depression Super-Essence. The Super-Essence for treating the
various issues in family relationships would be the
Family Relationships Super-Essence.
Such a simple and elegant solution! Not only do we solve the problems of a
practitioner having to have in their kit a very large number of individual
essences, but we also have ended up with a huge simplification in the process
No longer is it necessary to test to see which, for example, of the four
individual essences is needed for treating the issue of
“abundance”...... all that we have to do is give the person the
“Abundance” Super-Essence! The diagnosis process becomes so simple,
that anyone can do it!
And, this simplicity led me on to the next obvious thing.....
The “Practitioner's Essentials Mini-Set”.
Let's assemble a nice little set, with a small number of “Super-Essences”,
comprising the “core”, most important issues that
are commonly encountered in the average family. And, let's supply this set to
ordinary people who have never used essences before, thus introducing these
people to this powerful therapy.
But, this set is not a “toy”. This set packs a
and will give these people a powerful healing tool for themselves and their
And..... let's make this “
Practitioner's Essentials Mini-Set”
So that, as well as being a powerful little kit in its own right, it also
forms the starting point for the larger “
Super-Essence Practitioner's Set”.
This way, if a person is not certain as to whether they wish to go
the “full way” and become an essence practitioner, they can
“begin small” with the Practitioner's Essentials Mini-Set, using this as their starting
point, without the need for a large investment..... gain experience in
essence work, and later decide whether they wish to upgrade to the full
By doing it this way..... as well as bringing a highly useful little kit
to many people who would otherwise just not get into flower essences at all,
we would also be introducing essences to a lot of people who would
eventually graduate into being the “practitioners of the future”.
What are the “Super-Essences”?
Each of the New Millennium “Super-Essences” is actually made up of
a mixture of several (from one to six, with four being a typical number)
individual essences, combined together to form one
integrated entity, a “Super-Essence”.
Each “Super-Essence” is for a
and it covers this issue
comprehensively. The whole definitely
greater than the “sum of the parts”.
And, because of this comprehensive nature of the Super-Essences, a relatively
small number of Super-Essences will give a practitioner a very functional and
comprehensive set of essences.
An Example of a Typical “Super-Essence”.
Super-Essence is made up from the following four individual essences:
To encourage the energy of abundance in one's life. Experiencing a severe
sense of lack in one's life. For people who believe they do not have the
ability to create a rich life full of love.
The essence of Total Abundance. When all of the work has been done,
resolving all blocks to coming into full realisation of who we really are.
To hold the truth of prosperity. To help let go of the blocks that prevent
us from totally knowing that we have eternal access to Divine Abundance. (Like
- there is nothing to want, we already have it.)

assimilation of sweetness in one's life; where a person works hard at denying
The “Practitioner's Essentials Mini-Set”
Each of the above four individual “abundance” essences, on its own,
is very powerful. But, put the four of them together, into a “Super
Essence”, and they combine together to form a new energetic entity where
the whole truly is greater than the sum of the individual parts.
This combined entity becomes, literally, “The Essence of Abundance”,
covering the issue of abundance totally, from every possible angle.
Because of the extra power of these “Super-Essences”, compared with
the traditional way of using single essences, it is possible to put together a
kit of these “Super-Essences” where a surprisingly small number of
Super-Essences is sufficient to cover all of the health-related issues likely
to be found in the average personal or family setting. Such a kit is the New Millennium
Essentials Mini-Set”, comprising just fourteen bottles, of which
ten are Super-Essences covering the following issues:
....and four are the more powerful, single “New Energy” flower
essences that were discovered from 2002 onwards:
The last three flower essences are the core of our work, and they
cover issues that absolutely everyone needs
in their first two or three flower essence treatments.
This kit comprises thirteen 10-ml dropper bottles, with each bottle containing a
stock strength mixture of the appropriate essences that make up that
Supplied is also a 25-ml bottle of the
“linkage” essence that
provides energies to facilitate the mixing together of two or more of the
Super-Essences, so that, in the resulting mix of two or more of the
each Super-Essence holds its own energy identity, and the whole mixture
does not become just a massive mix of all of the individual
component essences that make up each Super-Essence.
The “Practitioner's Essentials Mini-Set” of these 14
Super-Essences actually fills two roles.....
It is a self-contained powerful health kit for personal and family use, covering many of
the health-related issues met by the average person or family.
It forms the starting point for the professional practitioner, as it
comprises the 14 most important Super-Essences for practitioner use. Add
to this basic kit a further thirty Super-Essences (listed below), and you
have the “Practitioner's Set”
of forty-four Super-Essences.
“This set of 44 Super-Essences must be the most powerful,
comprehensive practitioner’s essence set of its type on Planet Earth
The Practitioner’s Set
The extra thirty Super-Essences that are added in to the fourteen from the
Practitioner's Essentials Mini-Set, to make up the forty-four of the
are as follows......
Each of the Super-Essences is actually a “mini-mix” in its own
right, and may be used stand-alone for the treatment of that specific issue.
However, it is also possible to mix together in one treatment bottle, a
mixture of several of the Super-Essences. To make up such a mixture, four
drops from each stock bottle of the appropriate Super-Essence, along with five
drops of the
“linkage” essence, are added into a 25 ml treatment
bottle filled with water and (optionally) a little brandy.
we will look at the diagnosis and dispensing
of the Super-Essences, and at other, specialised, expansion options for
Practitioners beyond the Practitioner's Set of 44 Super-Essences.
