Fringe medicine
The process by which flowers are prepared for use in the pseudoscience of flower essence therapy. Flowers of interest are collected from their native habitat at the precise moment of flowering, then placed for two to three hours in the sun in a closed, clear glass container filled with distilled water, which allows the flower’s oils and other main constituents to enter the water.
