Theme Essences – Just for Fun

We all know what our faults are, perhaps better than anyone. But how many of us know our strengths? The term theme essence is just that: a way to acknowledge the positive traits in our personalities. Are you cheerful and even-minded under all circumstances? Then you’re probably a Cherry theme. Do you love learning new things and challenging your mind? You could be an Avocado theme.

Try this easy quiz just for fun, to see which flower essence, or essences, you resemble. Simply check off the qualities that best describe your personality. Then refer to the answer key at the bottom of this page.

Three out of three indicates your theme essence; two out of three, or an additional three out of three, means a possible sub-theme, or slightly less predominant personality strength. If you find you have several of each, as many people do, try to prioritize which qualities are uppermost in your personality.

When should you take your theme essence? (See Dosage Directions) When you feel out of sorts or not quite yourself. Taking your theme essence provides a general balancing effect.

And please remember: all of us have within us all of the flower essence qualities no matter what our theme or sub-theme.
