The essences can also be used for children, with a little adaptation. That won’t be a surprise, as children usually get a lower dose, though it’s more due to the fact that they react faster than the fact that they can’t handle the energy. Most children can handle more energy than you’d think.
There are several essences that are well suited for children in general. These are the essences that support them in their development and give them a sense of safety, like the essences in the table below.
c2. Calm the Storm
c7. Protective Bubble
c11. To the Rescue
c17. The Child Inside
Calm the Storm and Indigo are good essences to support Indigo / New Age children, who are usually extremely sensitive and can struggle with learning to handle that sensitivity. Also, a lot of them don’t feel particularly at home on earth.
Other essences you can use to support Indigo children are:
|10. Bright Light
37. True Storm
|40. Tender Heart
46. Wall of Love
Another thing that warrants attention when using essences for children is the alcohol in them. When you make a dosage bottle with 30 ml of (flat) mineral water and you add 10 drops of essences, the alcohol content will be almost negligible. A 30 ml bottle contains about 500 drops, which reduces the alcohol content from 36% to about 0.8%. If you add 2 drops from the dosage bottle in a cup or glass with 100 ml of water, then it’s almost completely gone.
Having said that, if you want to completely avoid your child getting any alcohol at all in their system, then you can take a bit of hot water and put the drops in that. The alcohol will evaporate, after which you can let your child drink the water once it has cooled off, or add the water to something else they are drinking. If you want to avoid the alcohol in the drops for yourself, you can use the same method or put them in a hot drink so the alcohol will evaporate.
The reason why the essences are alcohol-based is that alcohol preserves, and that it anchors the energy.
The descriptions for the essences are below, so you can either browse them at leisure or go back and forth between the table and the descriptions without having to leave the page:
Crystal essence of rose quartz
Rosetta is a soft and sweet essence. The energy opens your heart to yourself and to others, helps heal a wounded heart and releases blocks. Worries and sorrow are softly expelled from your heart.
This essence also gently stimulates creativity and mental growth. Rose quartz is one of the crystals that everyone would benefit from using every now and then, and children most of all.
Sometimes a growth process throws you outside of your comfort zone, and this essence can help you regain a feeling of safety and security.
10. Bright Light
Crystal essence of clear quartz
This essence lights up the darkness and chases away negative thoughts. It helps you clear your mind and align your thoughts. It also strengthens the aura and balances mind and body.
Bright Light is a cleansing essence (focus on your feet when you are working with it, maybe you can feel something happening there) that has a positive and activating energy. It’s recommended after working with Dark and Light, to counter the heavier energy of obsidian and to help clear away any released energy after going through a major energetic clean-up.
Another use for this essence is that it enhances other essences and that it lightens the energy of strongly grounding essences if the grounding aspect gets a bit too much to handle.
Crystal essence of green aventurine
Balance and helps you regain your inner balance. This essence works very gently to enhance mental growth and is a very good companion for children. It helps them navigate all the growth processes they encounter.
Green aventurine can also be used to energetically support skin care, because it has a soothing energy. Balance can be used in an oil or cream, either on its own or combined with other essences, like Fearless or Atlantis to support healing and to enhance the energy.
Crystal essence of labradorite
Shield repairs and seals the aura. This essence grounds, balances and protects. It also enhances the contact with your higher self.
Like the crystal itself, that seems a bit dull at first sight but lights up with colour when the light hits it just right, this essence helps bring hidden talents to the surface.
The protection of this essence also extends to spaces. Try a couple of drops on the threshold of a room, or the outside entrances to your house, to protect it from outside energies. It’s difficult to describe, and may be different for everyone, but to me, it feels like a room feels after a thorough clean-up.
Crystal essence of larimar
This essence furthers mental growth and activates self-healing powers on an energy level. It activates the third eye/sixth chakra and works on the throat chakra as well, to clear blocks in that area and to help you to express yourself freely again.
Crystal essence of champagne calcite
This crystal looks calm and sparkly, and it lives up to that. It helps you ground very very gently and softly without activating too much.
This is for people who can’t handle too many stimuli, and it helps them reconnect with their emotions. Added to that this essence also protects, like a floating device that gives you the confidence to jump in at the deep end and swim with the current instead of fighting it, because you know you will stay afloat.
37. True Storm
Crystal essence of pietersite
This essence anchors you in your aura, helping you to feel more at home on earth and be more ‘present’. It opens the third eye and stimulates intuition, re-establishing the connection with your higher self/soul. This enables you to look at yourself objectively and opens your eyes to illusions, limitations, and beliefs that have been dictated by outside influences. It’s a bit like the Tower card in Tarot, helping you to release shackles and freeing yourself from your inner tower.
With this clearer vision, you’ll be more able to distinguish between truth and untruth. If there are persistent blocks in your system, this essence can work as a bit of a catalyst and help facilitate a breakthrough. The resulting cleansing makes room for further growth.
True Storm also cleanses energy lines in your body and balances the distribution of energy, as well the ratio between inwardly and outwardly directed energy. This helps you remain calmer in situations where there are a lot of outside impulses/impressions to be processed.
Crystal essence of agate
The agate that yielded this essence has a milky brown-grey colour. Sparkling is the last word you’d use to describe it, and yet there’s something about it. What’s distinctive about this crystal is that one side is solid colour while the other side is covered in a beautiful array of concentric circles.
This essence is balancing, grounding, and helps you align your thoughts. It helps you see the path, and at the same time also helps you find the calm and decisiveness to get up and follow it, and to have the courage to grow. It stimulates self-analysis and self-acceptance. All this calm and balance also helps your concentration and helps you be more aware of your inner world.
40. Tender Heart
Crystal essence of amazonite
Tender Heart balances mind and emotions. It also influences the fifth chakra, which helps you communicate better, making it easier to talk about your feelings without being defensive about them, or going on the offence.
This is a very gentle essence that unlocks your heart and helps dissolve blocks in the heart and throat area. It gently helps you let go and has a calming and relaxing effect. It also makes it easier to ease out of restricting relationships, even when it concerns people that have already passed away.
The calming effect of this essence is also important if you suffer from anxiety. Amazonite has a filtering effect that makes itself known in two ways: it’s a strong protector that filters energy and keeps away negative energy, and it helps you filter information, helping you to distinguish between the flood of information that comes at you during the course of a day, both noticeable and unnoticeable information. This calms the mind, leaving you energy for other things.
Crystal essence of opalite
The first time I picked up this crystal, I felt a huge pressure on my throat, so I just had to buy it and take it home.
The card said opaliet (the Dutch name on the card), but when I searched for it, I found that opaliet was an opaque crystal, whereas this one was milky with a rainbow-like sheen. The essence felt absolutely wonderful, but I needed to know what it was. I decided to leave it be for a bit and started on making the description.
A few weeks later, while looking up something else, I stumbled on a small angel pendant that looked exactly like my crystal. It turned out there’s a bit of a translation issue with the name. In English, it’s called opalite, which you might translate to opaliet in Dutch. The Dutch name, however, is opaalkwarts, which translates to opal quartz. And then opal quartz in English is a coated clear quartz, something else altogether. Still with me? Anyway, it was a synthetic opal-like crystal. That was a bit of a shock, because the first thing that comes to mind when you read synthetic is usually ‘fake’, and that clashed with the energy I could feel from the essence.
After doing some more research it turned out that while the crystal is man-made, it is still made with natural material, and that a completely fake crystal is ‘imitation’. Crisis averted, on to the description:
The very first word was ‘water’, flowing. This essence helps anxieties, unprocessed emotions and feelings flow through and flow away until they have found a place. Don’t worry, let the energy carry you, it will take you to great heights, and if you consciously work with it, the sky is the limit.
This essence could have a beneficial influence on your voice, because it’s much easier to speak when that lump in your throat has gone.
When you hold the bottle and close your eyes, it could be that you get to see a bright, warm white light. It reminded me of angels and that was confirmed later on by one of the testers. She saw an embrace with angel wings, and pretty big ones at that.
This essences grounds you firmly, after which it takes you up, activating the higher chakras. Sky High would have been a good name as well, your head in the clouds while your feet are firmly planted on the ground.
Another indication for this essence is that it could help facilitate contact with devas and nature creatures. That’s not my area of expertise, but I want to mention it for those that do know what to do with it.
Crystal essence of hemimorphite
This essence has an outspoken feminine/yin energy. It boosts your energy, gives you hope and faith, and has the power to help you get back on your feet when you’ve been knocked down. It lovingly heals your core, your inner child.
Faith helps transform negative energy, helps you be yourself more, and to express yourself with more confidence. It’ll help you to say what you think and feel without fear.
Old fears and emotions are slowly being eroded so you can let them go. Just holding the bottle made my head go wonderfully calm and quiet. You might feel a pressure in your throat, and feel the glow of energy going downward from there. It helps you clear up all those compartments with emotions that you have slammed shut and hidden the key from over the years.
Faith reconnects you to your higher self/soul, enabling you to hear the clues your intuition gives you more clearly. You could say it resets your connection with the universe and makes it a bit more interference-proof.
Hemimorphite has a powerful healing energy and can also be used to support energy healing treatments, like Reiki. The energy this essence brings to the table can be compared to that of using quartz points to enhance energy flow.
Crystal essence of selenite
This essence cloaks you in a soft blanket of white light. It draws your aura closer to the body and protects you like you are in a warm, safe cocoon. This energy helps you connect to the angel realm, opens the sixth chakra and boosts the crown chakra. It streams further downward to the other chakras, lighting them up and alleviating blocks until your aura is firmly connected to the earth.
46. Wall of Love
Crystal essence of sugilite
This essence opens up the crown chakra and pulls a flow of energy through your system. It activates and aligns the chakras, soothes, eases sadness and fear, leaving more room for positive thoughts and making it easier for you to forgive yourself.
It’s like being submerged in a wave of love and it can really make your heart chakra glow. Wall of Love is a grounding essence that helps you gain more insight into your life purpose. It helps you to be true to your inner truth and remain upright under outside influences. It also shields from disappointments.
Crystal essence of ametrine
The sunny combination of amethyst and citrine yielded a real FeelGood essence that feels like leaning back with a smile on your face. This essence relaxes, calms your mind and cheers you up.
It’s a cleansing essence that helps you remove worries and negative thought patterns, cleansing, detoxing and balancing the chakras. It opens the door to a more positive outlook and helps you gain insight in the how, what and where of discomforts, also helping you look at them from a neutral perspective.
Crystal essence of green apatite
This essence helps you find peace and quiet within yourself and helps you connect with the world and beyond.
You are part of a whole, everything has a purpose and it is what it is. Peace helps you accept yourself and everything around you without prejudice. It has a detoxifying effect and will help you have faith and let go of doubts.
Crystal essence of prehnite
Cleanse initiates a thorough cleansing process and detoxifies, mainly in the heart chakra and solar plexus. It connects the heart to the will and helps you live from the heart. This essence reduces fears and helps you have faith if you have a fear of scarcity. Where there is love, there is no fear.
The way cleanse reduces fears is to help you face them, deal with them and solve them, so you are less inclined to run from them and to hide in distraction and procrastination (this may get worse at the start, or it will seem to be worse because you are starting to notice it, so be prepared for that possibility). Also be prepared for the sudden urge to declutter, which is a side effect of the cleansing effect of this essence.
Added to that, Cleanse is soothing and it exposes the cause of discomforts. It can also be used as a search-essence, boosting inner knowing so you will start to see where the sore spots are, and it will do so in a soft and loving way. Some of these insights can be a bit painful, but in general, this essence will show them to you bit by bit so it slowly sinks in, instead of hitting you over the head with them. It also helps you to be able to handle more in terms of impressions/information. You can process those faster, which may be of some help with hyperactivity or if you are easily overwhelmed/overstimulated.
Cleanse also protects the aura, and you can even use it to protect your house by putting a few drops on thresholds or window sills. Be sure to use the essence diluted for this purpose, by putting a few drops in hot water so the alcohol evaporates and then using the water. This is the be-on-the-safe-side approach for protecting the material of said thresholds and window sills.
c2. Calm the Storm
This essence helps you when you are highly sensitive and are struggling to handle that.
When you are highly sensitive (HSP), you process incoming stimuli in a different way, getting much more information out of them and picking up on things others don’t notice.
This will cause you to tire more easily and makes your head feel ‘full’ when you are in situations where there are a lot of stimuli. Another aspect is that you feel emotions more fully so you can get the feeling you are being ruled by them.
Calm the Storm helps you ground yourself so negativity can flow out. Added to that it protects against too many outside stimuli by strengthening your aura and solar plexus.
Thirdly, it will help you accept yourself and balance the extremes in you. It also improves the distribution of your energy so you will feel more balanced.
Fear can paralyse you, and it can be difficult to break through that yourself. This essence offers you a bit of help with that issue.
Fearless gives you warmth and strength by giving you a different, more clear view of your fears, and by helping to dissolve trauma and energy blocks.
Fearless helps calm your senses when they have been overstimulated and helps you regain your mental and emotional balance.
c7. Protective Bubble
When you have trouble releasing energy you pick up from people, or even places, that can make you feel tired, chaotic and gloomy.
This combination helps to protect and ground your aura/energy field. Added to that, it removes negative energy and sends it back to where it came from if needed.
c11. To the Rescue
This essence helps you out in emergency situations. It grounds you, removes negative energy, comforts and protects. It’s a powerful but gentle energy that is suited for everyone.
During the testing period for this essence, we found that it can also be of help if you aren’t properly present in your body for whatever reason, or when someone has an outer body experience but doesn’t come back properly. The feeling was described as a loving pressure on their shoulders followed by preventing them from exiting again.
c17. The Child Inside
This essence will help you to be yourself (again). It’ll help you have faith, a very deep faith, in yourself, the world around you, and in goodness.
You are encouraged to open up again and to let go of the pain of old wounds. The Child Inside comforts, helps heal your emotional wounds and adds a hugely loving hug as a bonus, helping you to view the child you once were with love, compassion and understanding.
A word of warning, though. When you start inner child work, it is entirely possible that a whole heap of sadness has to be released before you start to feel better, as grieving heals. The energy will help you through it, but if it gets to be too much, see if you need another essence (c11. To the Rescue or c43. Swept) as support, or adjust the dosage you take.
Safety helps you regain a basic sense of feeling safe. Most of us are born with that feeling, but as you make your way through life things can happen that may cause you to decide that the world is an unsafe place. This results in living from fear, continually searching for security and being unable to surrender fully to life.
This essence helps start to realise that you are safe. It will help you release tension and loosen your grip on the reins.
If you have an allergy, chances are that Safety may alleviate it a bit. In some cases lacking a basic feeling of safety can cause your entire being to react with hostility to things it sees as intruders, causing an allergic reaction. In those cases, the symptoms may diminish or even disappear as you start to feel safer, more grounded and more confident, as the more grounded you are, the better you are equipped to deal with whatever life throws at you.
Indigo was made especially for new age kids from zero to a hundred years old. This energy will help them get used to life on earth and to adjust to its energy.
This essence grounds you and you may feel a lot happening around your solar plexus, or third chakra, as Indigo supplies you with a kind of light shield to help you stay true to yourself. It also balances you on all levels and helps you accept the world and all its contrasts, helping you feel more safe and cherished.
The grounding effect will help give you a little push to DO things, which usually is a difficult step to take. Creating things inside your mind won’t be the problem here, but taking the step to do something about it can be a quite hard from time to time.
Indigo helps you accept that you are on earth and that things here take a little more time to accomplish, which in turn helps you be more patient and able to wait and see. It also protects you from too much outside impulses.
This essence also aligns the chakras, which is a part of helping you to feel more grounded and protective. It enables the energy in your system to find its way, helps you release energy you no longer need and helps you take in new, clean energy. All of this will help you to dissociate less and feel more like you are partaking in life instead of standing on the sidelines.
Indigo also enables you to deal with information you perceive, to accept yourself and to learn to trust your intuition.
Fuzzy is a warm, comforting energy that makes you feel safe and cherished. It’s a warm embrace, you are loved and you are welcome. This essence gives hope and faith and feels like a warm blanket if you were feeling (for a little while or a bit longer) unseen and unloved.
It will help you see that things are less bleak than you think, and it will help you find calm, courage and a down-to-earth view of situations. When you are feeling safer, the world looks a lot less dangerous.
This essence is very soft and gentle, making it very suitable for children that have trouble dealing with change or are going through a change in their lives.
This combination essence was created using the following single essences: green apatite, amber, pink quartz, champagne calcite, aquamarine, kyanite, astrofyllite, danburite and lavender flower essence.
Ease helps you when you are feeling overstimulated and frazzled. Which, if you are highly sensitive, may be quite often. This essence will help you ground, and it protects and balances you. Above all soothes your frazzled nerves, helping you to regain a healthy perspective. The mountain you may be inclined to make of things when feeling like that will become smaller, and you’ll be more able to take some time to rest.
