Making flower essences

I've been making flower essences for years.  But I still have to pull out my Roots Of Healing by Deb Soule, a wonderful herbalist from Maine. 
She details the steps, which are quite particular.

The bowl must be clean and clear glass with no patterns filled with spring water.  You cannot touch the flowers with your fingers, instead use a sterilized pair of scissors.

Spring water from a glass container is used and the perfect, freshest flowers are chosen to rest on the water for whatever amount of time feels right.

Today I am making a rose combination and an Angelica flower essence to put in my aromatherapy blends and any oral drops I make for the rest of the year.
