Flower Essence Formula for Healthy Boundaries

Since boundaries are often perceived and felt energetically and emotionally within a person, flower essences are a handy herbal tool to support healthy boundaries from the inside out. Below is a recipe for cultivating healthy boundaries. This blend works over a period of time and offers acute boundary protection when needed.

Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) is a well-known herb for helping protect, nourish, and tonify the energies of the heart and the physical cardiovascular system (Holmes,1989). Taken as a formula along with pink yarrow (Achillea millefolium var. rubra), a classic essence for cultivating appropriate emotional boundaries, and centaury (Centaurium erythraea), a supportive aid for empowering one’s ability to say “no” and honoring personal needs, this blend addresses multiple angles of healthy boundary setting simultaneously (Flower Essence Services, n.d.).

While healthy boundary setting is a great practice anywhere, it is especially important to utilize while living or visiting an urban environment. Since cities are more densely populated with people, absorbing other energies around you or internalizing situations you witness are constant challenges that one must be prepared to face on a daily basis. This is why healthy boundary setting with herbs is an important aspect of urban herbalism. Carry this formula with you as you trek around the city. Or, use as needed in your urban herbalism toolbox. Yield: 1/2 ounce.


1 drop hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) stock essence
1 drop pink yarrow (Achillea millefolium var. rubra) stock essence
1 drop centaury (Centaurium erythraea) stock essence
15 ml spring water

  • Pour the spring water into a clean 1/2-ounce glass dropper bottle.
  • Add the flower essences to the dropper bottle.
  • Shake the dropper bottle lightly to combine.

To Use: 

Enjoy 4 drops of the flower essence formula 4 times per day, or take it intuitively in drop doses as needed throughout the day.

In Closing,

Urban herbalism can easily become an everyday practice. Although this recipe will certainly come in handy while dwelling in the city, it can also be applied in any environment.
