A one-hour consultation consists of selecting flower essences that will best support a person’s process by bringing greater clarity and harmonizing the core issue, or underlying cause, of a client’s discomfort. Usually two to five flower essences are chosen to make up a personalized formula.

The fee for this service is $130 and includes a one-hour consultation and a bottle of the customized flower essence formula. For telephone consultations there is an additional charge to cover the shipment of the custom formula. Our special international telephone rates make it affordable for those in other countries to consult with Cynthia over the telephone.

The work we have done together has completely freed me to be myself. I send you my deepest thanks.
~ V. M., Brazil

What a difference your flower essences make. For the first time I can feel what it is like to be in my body, the lack of struggle, the ending of denial – especially about my gifts and myself. I am amazed at how much more I can do in a day, and becoming more organized is a lot easier to do and not so frightening as it was at first. Before, an empty space felt so cold and unfriendly, but now it feels safe and there is even room for joy in my life. Thank you so much for being there when I needed some outside help.
~ E.B., Australia

You have figured out how to support people with fast-track healing using the flower essences and prayer work. I have done therapy with a therapist and it brings up stuff to deal with but it doesn’t resolve it. When I use the flower essences, healing takes place without suffering and so much struggle. Your work is so important for so many of us. Thank you!
~ D.D., California

Since our last consultation and using the custom combination of essences you sent me, every few days I had a stronger sense of myself. I had said that one of my goals was to deepen a sense of dignity, and that is exactly what I experienced. I also managed to talk myself out of a pity party and a descent into a negative spiral on one important occasion. Using these flower essences is a life saver!
~ E.R., Connecticut

My personal feeling is that your Desert Alchemy essences touch the highest & deepest dimension of human awareness/consciousness as yet possible. They seem to touch immediately a point within myself where the lacking/forgotten/suppressed strength is located – and then opens the ‘floodgate’ so that ‘IT’ just flows into my consciousness reminding me of ‘who I AM’. Heartful gratitude to all of you at Desert Alchemy for the work you are doing.
~ A.G., Germany

My last custom formula really helped me be serene and peaceful. This is an amazing change for me. My usual state of being is soaked in anxiety, with a mind that does not shut off. I was delighted, and my husband was so excited to see this change in me!
~ A. E., New York

I have been using Desert Alchemy’s flower essences for some time now and have experienced great beneficial changes as a result. Cynthia’s recommendations are always precise and I enjoy working with her on specific issues. Her books are also very informative on the process of selecting and taking remedies. I would recommend her products and counsel to anyone looking to make deep changes in her life.
~ P. K., California

I am deeply grateful for your amazing support and great wisdom. I appreciate you understanding me and my needs throughout all of the changes of my life. I am blessed that you are in my life.
~ J. F., Illinois

I cannot begin to tell you of how deeply my healing has been since I began doing flower essence consultations with you. I never dreamed that I could be this aware in the midst of such great changes.
