June is National Rose Month. So this is the perfect time to introduce Flora Luna, a new brand I have been loving recently. Flora Luna was brought to life by Alisa Gould-Simon, who has studied medicinal plants on her many travels around the world. The company’s mission is to “help find your true essence,” and so Alisa’s tinctures (or essences) have meaningful names like Strength, Focus, and Find Live.

To say Flora Luna is unique would be an understatement. These special essences are handcrafted during a full moon in charming Venice, California. This allows them to be packed with as much healing properties as possible. All the tinctures are completely natural and organic, containing iris flower essence, purified water, and gluten free brandy (the latter can be swapped for an alcohol free alternative).

Now you may be confused about what the differences are between floral essences and essential oils are because I know I was at first. Fortunately, the company has the following breakdown to clarify any confusions:

Floral Essences:

  • Ingested orally (typically not used topically)
  • Works on the emotional body and primarily supports mental and emotional healing
  • Leverages a flower or plant’s vibration or frequency for its healing properties
  • Can be added to food, beverages, or a bath, even pillowcases!

Essential Oils:

  • Used topically (typically not safe to ingest)
  • Works on the physical or mental healing
  • Leverages a flower or plant’s materials and aroma for its healing properties
  • Can be added to skin care products or a bath

Now I hope that cleared some of the confusion. Moving on to what Flora Luna essence I picked. Roses have been used in cooking and healing for thousands of years. In Ancient Rome, roses were often added to meals that celebrated an event or victory. In the late 19th Century, candied rose petals were a popular kind of candy.

To this day, several Middle Eastern cultures incorporate rose petals and rose water in foods and drinks. Medicinally, rose contains a known oil, which consists of tannin, quercitrin, and organic acids. And according to traditional Chinese medicine, roses have beneficial properties that can nourish the skin, bring calmness, and regulate energy.

My focus was to address restlessness and insomnia. The selected individuals who volunteered were excited! All four of them chose for the essence to be placed on their pillowcases, and so five drops of the essence were placed on the pillowcases 30 minutes before an afternoon nap. The soothing and comforting aroma of a rose garden were shown to enhance their ability to sleep better and ease restlessness. They were also found to be less anxious about losing sleep.

I highly recommend checking out the range of essences Alisa has beautifully crafted, whether you’re looking for more clarity or purpose. There is something for everyone. Price will depend on size, but most of these magical essences start at $20 dollars (1/2 ounce).

There seem to be so many uses for essential oils. I got a lavender one and it actually helped with my son’s wisdom tooth. I also love the scents of these oils. I’m looking for sandalwood but haven’t been lucky.
