Hi Lee Anne,

My apologies! Energetic dosing with plant tinctures uses drop doses (small amounts) to achieve an effect on the subtle energy patterns of the mind, body, and spirit. It includes the spiritual effects of plants and recognizes the innate intelligence of the body and plant. Many herbalists focus solely on energetic dosing, while others favour more therapeutic dosing. I often like to combine the two together.

In my experience, I have added anywhere between 5-20mL of Rose tincture in a 100mL blend to support grief/sorrow/anger, as I find it quite powerful (especially if it’s a strong 1:1 or 1:2). Another example is Hawthorn, which is of course used therapeutically for the cardiovascular system! But some herbalists also use it energetically in formulas, in a smaller dose, to support emotional healing in grief.

Let me know if that doesn’t make sense!
