One of Ghost Pipe's main constituents is salicylic acid, the same found in aspirin.

Cherokee tribes considered it a pain panacea of the highest order.

Ghost Pipe is a nervous system ally, easing sensory input. Ghost Pipe doesn't deaden the discomfort, but distances us from it, so we can work through the discomfort, learning the lessen that it is trying to teach us, without being overwhelmed by it.

Ghost Pipe puts the person beside their pain, so they can see it and deal with it. It is not your normal pain soother.

In the words of herbalist, David Winston, “…you know it hurts, but simply don’t care.”

It eases sensitivity to painful stimuli and energizes the pain threshold. It allows one to feel more grounded and present, rather than overtaken by overwhelming discomfort.

Ghost Pipe also soothes emotional pain, anxiety, and panic attacks, especially those caused created by sensory overload.

Ryan Drum, an herbalist based in the PNW, expects Ghost Pipe to have a bright future as a psychiatric nervine in acute cases.

Welsh physician and herbalist, Edward Bach, believed that sun-warmed dew absorbed the energizing power of the plants on which it was found. He began to place flowering herbs into glass bowls with pure, spring water, then setting them out in the sunshine. The solar charged essences were then soothingly thinned down. This is believed to allow the plants to work on a vibrational level, rather than a biochemical level.

Flower essences do not target specific physical illnesses, but rather the moods and the negative emotions which lead to their manifestation. Bach believed that these essences would “melt away diseases, just as the snow melts in the sun.”

A flower essence is a super diluted, solar (or lunar, when appropriate) charged, liquid extract. Flower essences are truly straight from the “laboratory of nature”. All four alchemical elements are present in an essence. Water, Air, Earth, and Fire; all harmoniously blended together, leaving only the spirit element, which is fulfilled by the sensitive awareness and attunement of the preparer, and further by the user. 

 A flower essence is an example of sympathetic magic. Dr. Bach first began using them to aid those with emotional pain, i.e., lonesomeness, dread, sorrow, insecurity, oversensitivity, weariness, and suffering. Each plant contains a unique energy vibration pattern, and the pinnacle of this energy is the flower. 
Do you feel particularly drawn to a particular flower? This suggests that you are in need of an innate wisdom that the flower could provide to you, on a deep emotional level. Each flower boasts its own rejuvenating advantages and can target a distinctive emotional state. 
Using flower essences is a simple, natural way to grow and get back on ones feet, as the essence functions as a catalyst for transformation, at a deep emotional level. 
Following Bach’s original practices, I gather flower blossoms early, while they are still dew-filled, on a clear, sunny morning. I gently place them into a clear glass vessel with distilled water and allow them to solar charge, beneath the morning sun. 
For night blooming flowers, I gather blooms which are fully opened, and allow them to charge under the moon light. Preparing the essences in this manner, absorbs the imprint of the flower’s energy, into the water. 
I personally include Flower essences in my practice to support emotional balance, lift the spirit, gain greater mental clarity, and to connect with my higher self. 
Once the water is strained and the flowers removed, you are left with the “mother essence”. I then preserve the mother essence with equal amounts of top-quality brandy. The correct amount of the Mother Essence is then added to a Brandy/Distilled water combination, and you will receive; a 30ml glass stock bottle with included dropper. To use any of my essences, you can simply place 4 drops from your stock bottle into a glass of water, up to 4 times daily. 

This method allows you to use several essences together, if desired. You can either use each essence separately, or mix any number of flower essences that you would like, by simply combining equal amounts of each essence. Essences can also be added to bath water, body creams or lotions, or holy water.
