Here's a little run-down that might help you to know when you need a Custom Combo and when you can get by with a Bouquet Blend.
The Bouquet Blends are as the name describes, a mix of different flowers in one bottle. They are the easy pick combos designed to be helpful to the widest variety of people and they can save you a bunch of money. They are also the easiest way to get started with flower essences. You just pick out what you need by the name description (Joy, Stay Calm etc.) Bouquet Blends are a highly targeted assault against one specific problem and you'll get great results with them.
Custom Combos are also pretty self-explanatory. You get something that is made specifically for your needs. This involves a consultation with me over the phone or email, and I have to take the time to bottle it, therefore you pay me more than something that just comes off the shelf. The value of a Custom Combo comes in when you can't decide between 2-3 Bouquet Blends because one won't quite cover it. At that point, you might as well just book your consultation.
So which is better? It's not an easy answer. The Bouquet Blends target one thing very specifically, hitting it from several angles, the custom blend is tailored to you and can be anything you want it to be.
Honestly, even with the access and knowledge I have to make whatever blend I need on the spot, I often wind up pulling a Bouquet Blend off the shelf. I think they are great for day-to-day stuff that goes down. If I'm trying to go deep into an issue for a big resolution, or I'm wanting something specific like essences to aid my writing or some other project I've taken on, I'll make myself a custom blend.
So with all that in mind, I have 2 new packages for you. One is a Bouquet Blend "Grace Pack." It's 5 of the really universally needed, "everybody can use these" blends in a little pouch along with my book "Flower Power: Essences That Heal." If you've ever wanted to get somebody introduced to the wonderfulness of essences, this is a great gift or starter set at a discount of more than $40 over buying everything separately.
Not to leave the Custom Combos out, I now have an "Essence of the Month Club" which is basically a subscription to get a new Custom Combo each month. We'll do a consultation, see what you need, then next month I'll check back in and see how we can take it a step farther. And so on and so forth, until you get sick of me.
You can pay for a 6 month subscription up front or you can be billed monthly. There is no cost difference either way, but if you pay for the 6 months, that tells me that you're committed and in this for the long haul. I will reward that commitment by giving you greater access to me. (You'll get my cell number.) You can call or text anytime you have a question. I can't say I'll always pick up, but I will call you back.
This is win-win by the way, because I like to know who my customers are. I'm not entirely comfortable with having these random names and order numbers cruising through my site, reading my emails and buying my stuff when i don't know who they are.
