Brigid’s Way formulates unique Essences from Plants, Flowers, Nature Spirits and sacred places that have come forward as guides to help humanity evolve and assist individuals in discovering their True Essential Nature. We use these Spirit Essences in our client consultations to positively change the lives of others—which, in turn, contributes to our collective evolution. We also offer the Spirit Essences for sale to practitioners and individuals.


The purpose of an Essence is to capture the energetic imprint of a Plant, Gem or event. Because Brigid’s Way works with Plants and Nature Spirits, our Essences are unique in that they also contain the Spirit of these Beings, compounding the power of the healing potential.  Therefore, we call our Essences, Spirit Essences.  The Plant’s (or other Being’s) consciousness is involved in the process, creating an energy transference. This imbues the process with Light, Love and an Intelligence that seeks out root cause, not merely a treatment of symptoms. 

We make Brigid’s Way Spirit Essences at sites around the world, capturing the energies and Spirits of sacred places, Archetypes and events—such as Mountain Energy, Water, Love and Light—as well as working with both common and rare Plants. Whenever possible, we connect the Plants to the Music of the Plants device while making their Essence, thereby adding another dimension.

As humans continue to evolve at an ever-increasing speed, the Plants are asking for their healing gifts to be shared with the world. They want to co-create Essences that help us embrace our True Essential Nature, and that can support and embrace our growing consciousness and awakening.  Brigid’s Way collaborates with them to capture their unique healing gifts in our Spirit Essences in the hopes of creating a better world.

Ecuador Essences

The South American land of the majestic Andes and wild Amazon has held an allure for many people over the millennia. During a life-altering, two-week journey to Ecuador, Jen Frey joyfully took part in ceremony, communed with Nature, and experienced deep healing. The Plants and Places included in the Ecuador Set insisted that their Essences be made and shared with others, which prompted Jen to make her Spirit Essences available to everyone.

These Essences can assist you in seeing your beauty, healing wounds, removing blockages, and connecting with both Nature and your truest inner nature. They are wonderful for journeying.

These 16 Essences are available as individuals or as the complete set. These Essences are made by Nature and lovingly prepared by the Heart and hands of Jen Frey, founder of Brigid’s Way. The Essences are preserved with fine brandy.


Ecuador 2 Essences

In 2017, Jen returned to Ecuador for another amazing adventure in the Andes and Amazon.  After her first trip, she knew she was not able to make all of the Spirit Essences that she was being asked to create.  The Plants called her back to continue on this journey with them.

The Plants in Ecuador retain their original power.  They are wild and grow with their fullest possibility.  Of course there are cultivated Plants there, especially in Quito.  But even these have a strength that you do not find in the same cultivated Plants in the US.  The climate in Ecuador is conducive to Plant life: warm all year, sunny, and plenty of rain.  The energy is full of life.  The Plants in this area know that they are important for the future of humanity.  They offer many healing gifts and are part of the lungs of our Planet.  The Plants here are used to having an intimate relationship with humans and want to have their gifts shared with the rest of the world.

These Spirit Essences can assist in accessing wisdom and guidance, clearing what is no longer in service, and helping you to embrace your power and gifts.  Many of these Plants are traditional Shamanic Plants of Ecuador and as such are great journeying Essences.

These 16 Essences are available as individuals or as the complete set.  These Essences are made by Nature and lovingly prepared by the Heart and hands of Jen Frey, founder of Brigid’s Way.  The Essences are preserved with fine brandy.


Ireland Essences

During several personal Shamanic journeys, Jen Frey envisioned herself dressed in a sweeping cape, standing tall on a craggy, windblown cliff, and gazing at the mighty ocean. She had no idea where this was but knew that she had to go there. In 2013, her dreams became reality when she traveled to Ireland’s Cliffs of Moher. During this remarkable journey, she co-created the Essences that became the Ireland Set, which all have the common theme of helping us to step into our Higher Being.

These Essences can assist you in releasing burdens, wounds, and limiting beliefs, and moving more fully into your evolution.

These 10 Essences are available as individuals or the complete Ireland set. They originated mostly on the Burren in County Clare, Ireland (a rocky landscape renowned for its remarkable assemblage of Plants and Animals). They are made by Nature and lovingly prepared by the Heart and hands of Jen Frey, founder of Brigid’s Way. The Essences are preserved with fine grain Jameson Irish Whiskey.


Kauai Essences

During an excursion to the breathtaking island of Kauai, Jen was drawn into a Love affair with the exquisite beauty of Mother Nature: mountain spires, colorful sands, cascading waterfalls, lush flora, and succulent fruits.

Beyond the island’s sensual beauty, the landscape itself is a powerful magnifier of energy. The Plants absorb this intensified energy to their fullest potential. For this reason, the Plants and places that eventually became the Kauai Essences focalize Light and raise the vibratory rate. They help us re-member who we are: sensual Beings filled with Love!

These Essences can support you in healing both Ancestral and Karmic lines, living a Heart-centered life, and ultimately realizing yourself as a Sacred Human Being.

These 16 Essences are available as individuals or as the complete Kauai set. These Essences originating from the enchanting and energetically potent island of Kauai are made by Nature and lovingly prepared by the Heart and hands of Jen Frey, founder of Brigid’s Way. The Essences are preserved with fine brandy.


Extra Essences

These Essences are not currently available in a set; however, they are some of our most requested Essences, so we are making them available here. Unless, otherwise stated, they are preserved with high quality brandy.


Using Brigid’s Way Spirit Essences


Brigid’s Way sells stock bottles of Essences. We take 1 drop of the stock Essence and perform journey or dream work. We also work with the stock Essences in our PET sessions (or energetic Flower Essence sessions).


The stock bottle can be diluted to a dosage bottle. To do this, fill a ½-ounce bottle with 3 parts good quality brandy and 7 parts pure spring water (do not use water that has been chlorinated). To this bottle, add 3 drops of the stock Essence. You now have a dosage bottle.

Essences as part of Brigid’s Way consultation:

At the end of each client consultation, Jen tests which Essences are needed at that time and mixes a dosage bottle for her client to take over the following month (usually following a dosage of 3 drops, 3 times a day).

While we work with other brands of Essences in addition to our own, we are very discerning about which Essences we work with and the people who make them. All are of the highest integrity and in the fullest alignment with the Plants and Spirit. Not all Essences are created equal! We align with Delta Gardens, Sweetwater Sanctuary, Woodland Essence and Avena Botanicals.

A Note on Essential Oils:

Brigid’s Way Plant Essences are NOT essential oils. Many people confuse Essential Oils (EOs) with our Essences even though the two are very different forms of Plant preparations. EOs have become quite popular and common in recent years. They are derived from the volatile oils of Plants, or those components of a Plant that are fragrant. This is done in a rather complex process of distillation, which can include synthetic chemicals to extract the fragrance. The main factor is their scent and their effectiveness relates to the power of our sense of smell—and, in particular, the relationship of smell with our memory and emotions.

It is important to remember that EOs are potent and powerful compounds. It takes a large amount of Plant material to extract a bottle of EO. For instance, 1 drop of Rose Otto oil contains 60 (or 5 dozen) roses. A 5mL bottle contains 10,000 rose blossoms! Because of this potency, only a few EOs are safe to use neat or directly on the skin without a carrier oil. Traditional recommendations are to inhale EOs or use them topically. It is becoming more popular to ingest EOs; however, this should be done with extreme caution or avoided completely.

While EOs can be incredibly beneficial, many people are developing sensitivities to the scents. Over time, our bodies can have a difficult time processing them, especially since some companies dilute their EOs with synthetic chemicals or use harsh chemicals to capture the volatile oils. Perhaps the most important issue of all is that the frequent use of EOs is not sustainable, due to the large quantity of Plant material that is required.
