In Mark I found a very wonderful human being and healer. He is exceedingly compassionate and is fantastic at sensing energy imbalances and healing them with flower remedies. I came to him for my hormonal problems and acne issues for which I had not found much success with doctors and other type of alternative practitioners. I went away not only with my problems greatly resolved but also went away with a sense of calmness and well being.

Testimonial for the Trauma Kit
“I learned of the Essence Alchemy Kit at a conference I was attending, and was instantly drawn to them. I saw in the indications that many of the essences worked to move trauma out of the system. As this is in line with how I work with my clients, I decided to give them a try. Low and behold, I have found these essences to be very powerful with addressing and moving trauma out of the body. I used them with one client that responded to them instantly, realizing that he was no longer triggered by social situations that he had been previously. I’ve been using these essences more and more in my practice, and always with clear results.”
Carla Savetsky, RPA-MS, Holistic Women’s Health Expert.
“Mark is an extraordinarily gifted healing practitioner as well as a compassionate, generous human being who possesses a great understanding of the mind-body connection, how our emotions contribute to the health of our body.
I was initially referred to Mark because I had been suffering with chronic Lyme disease, and was told he had a way of treating it with flower essences. My Lyme was going in and out of remission since 2003. It had become chronic because it was initially misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia. Finally it was identified during a second flare-up of the disease in 2008. I thought I had gotten it under control with antibiotics. But in 2013 it came back even stronger. I did not want to utilize that same treatment, which has many bad side-effects and no guarantee of stopping the infection.
When I called Mark, I did not know what to expect, but was immediately put at ease with his kindness, obvious expertise, sensitivity, and sense of humor! After speaking with him, the flower essence formula he made for me to combat those nasty spirochetes, worked! The formula promptly arrived in only 3 days, although I live in NJ and he lives in California. Within a week of taking the formula, the aches and pains, and foggy feeling that comprise my symptoms of Lyme, went away!I had tested positive for Lyme on a blood test, so I definitely knew I had it. Mark was actually able to identify the degree of infection within my body. Anytime I feel a flare coming on, Mark prepares a new formula for me, and each time the symptoms completely resolve! I am so grateful to him and just wish that more people who suffer from Lyme will find out about this so they can finally find relief.
In case anyone has there doubts about Mark being able to help you via a long distance phone call, I want to put those doubts to rest. I live in NJ and initially was skeptical that he could help me by reading my body’s energies, nutritional needs and deficiencies, allergic issues, and even genetic issues via the phone, especially since he lives in California, but boy, was I ever surprised!
Over the course of my treatments, he has identified vitamin deficiencies and a genetic mutation in my methylation pathway that I never told him about but were verified by recent blood tests. Once, he told me my lungs and bronchial tubes were inflamed, even though at the time I was feeling no symptoms whatsoever. Two days later, I had a mild asthma attack, which I hadn’t had in almost a year. Two weeks later—I had developed the full blown symptoms of bronchitis. What was amazing to me was that Mark could see the beginnings of both of these issues before they became apparent to me. These are only a small sampling of the many interesting physical issues Mark had been able to detect.
Another extremely important issue Mark has helped me with is clearing decades of deeply entrenched emotional and psychological issues. I have had help in the past by speaking with therapists, but I continue to be amazed that a bottle of customized flower essences can help clear these issues and transform me in such a profound way. Plus Mark’s deep insights into my psyche, his patience, kindness, non-judgmental attitude, keen perceptions, and suggestions for what I need to do to further my growth, have been instrumental in what I feel has been a personal metamorphosis.
It has become clearer to me how our emotions and psyche can profoundly impact our health and well- being. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who wants to experience these significant benefits. He will always have my deep appreciation!”

My consultation with Mark D’Aquila was beautiful. As a perceptive and knowledgeable healer, he combines both the recognition of patterns that require healing, with the wisdom and beauty of the tangible flower essences, to personalize a healing process for you. After starting to use the customized flower essence, which was so thoughtfully combined and gorgeously sourced, I noted big shifts in my life. I started attracting more positive energy and people, and feel as if a curse has been lifted, and barriers have been dissolved. Self-doubt has slid away, and self-love naturally is growing and deepening. I am able to connect to the wisdom within myself, and speak my truth with grace and equanimity. I can see more clearly, patterns that I used to get caught up in, that would drain my energy and reduce my sense of beauty and light in myself and in the world. I feel a core stability, grounded in what I love. I am more “sparkly” in the world, able to lightly be myself, with dignity and a gentle sense of my own soul’s presence. I am aligning with other people who share my loves and values, that of the earth, and am also meeting men who honour the divine in themselves and others, who love physical finesse, and healing and energy work. A whole new experience of the world has opened up for me, one that supports my joy.
I am quite taken by the power of the beauty of the flowers, which are such delicate things, and yet so uplifting, and am learning how there is this beautiful power to gentleness and beauty.
A big thank you to Mark, for holding space for this type of healing medicine, and offering his knowledge in such a graceful way in the world.

I came upon the work of Mark D’Aquila by accident, or good fortune. Browsing the internet for flower essences I landed on his website – essencealchemy.com. I had never done a consultation of this sort before but I had a feeling it might be worth it. I was not only not disappointed, I was nurtured, comforted and listened to more deeply than maybe anyone ever has.
Mark is a gentle soul and truly intuitive. He heard me deeper than my words and his questioning opened up new levels of insight that I might never have come to on my own. He is very caring and consults with a warm soul embrace. He put together a combination of essences coming from his intuition and I had it within two days. I have to say that the discord in my soul disappeared gently and thoroughly.
I have consulted with him two times since and each time we journeyed further. And each time he has prepared a unique combination of essences. And each time my heart and soul experienced deeper healing. Mark is a marvelous companion on the road to wellness.

As a meditation teacher, my experience is that in order to create sustainable change in our lives, gentle focused consistency is required. Mark’s approach to flower essences works in exactly this way. He works through deep listening and has an ability to ask the questions that truly need to be asked in order to uncover hidden blocks in people. Where many forms of medicine are too generalized to create systemic change, my sessions with Mark have led to emotional, spiritual, and physical shifts that I could not have foreseen and feel deeply grateful for. Mark is an incredibly knowledgable and compassionate practitioner. He embodies a reverence for nature and for the organic process of healing that is rare in today’s world and that make sessions with him transformative and potent.

“I discovered Mark at a critical and challenging time in my life, when the waves and troughs of transition were overwhelming. I knew very little about flower essence therapy, but was open to a new type of support. What I did not anticipate was the extraordinary gift that Mark has for creating and holding safe space. His skill in listening and reflecting back through sharing observations and asking questions is unique. The learning and self discovery that emerged through our sessions was remarkable. Mark has an uncanny ability to hit just the right note or acupuncture point, opening up a whole new view. Mark has superb intuition and a way with words that speaks volumes, always leaving me feeling truly seen and heard. And, in addition to these skills, Mark’s ability to choose just the right combination of flower essences to support my journey blows me away every time.”
Michele Steckler, New York, New York
“The flower essence work that Mark D’Aquila creates is a service that goes beyond remedy. Similar to a homeopath, he gently and powerfully searches into the minute specificity of how we act and react to hold ourselves back. When his elegant inquiry into the nature of my concern has reached its conclusion, he prepares a combination flower essence tincture especially for me. Not only do I sense myself changed through the process of his discovery, but his preparation continues to refine the solution in my being, over time. Pretty amazing work, I say. “
Aaron Zweig – Master Bodyworker, Ojai, CA
“I had a session with Mark to help me with my struggles of procrastination over a project I needed to complete. Mark is incredibly intuitive and insightful and quickly pinpointed the heart of my issue. He mixed me up a formula and within just 2 days of taking it, I was not only working on the project but finished it! I am truly grateful to Mark for his amazing healing and intuitive abilities. “
Kim Vincent, NLP master practitioner, life coach and hypnotherapist Ojai, CA

“Mark is the most knowledgeable and intuitive flower essence practitioner I have ever had the blessing to work with. His ongoing and dedicated communion with flowers and their essences has been honed through many years of devotion, study, practice and experience such that he has become an adept in his field. The diagnosis and treatments he has prescribed for me have allowed gentle, supportive and very deep changes that aligned perfectly with my soul’s growth and development. I am very grateful to have him as a healing ally in my life.”
Narelle Bouthillier – shamanic healer, Boston
“I was referred to Mark D’Aquila by a trusted friend. She knew I needed support in getting my life on track and breaking the cycle of unfulfilling relationships that I was in. Little did I know the deep changes that would transpire. After just 4 months of working with Mark I realized I made more progress than I did in 10 years of therapy. Mark’s compassionate support and guidance has helped me to feel more alive, connected to life and closer to my goals.”
Lisa Shapiro, New York City
“Like a lot of people, I have been trying to diagnose and work on myself. This worked to a point, but I wanted to some help, some guidance as I navigated my way.
The difference was astounding. No matter how self-aware you are, there will always be aspects of your emotional condition that only another person can pinpoint. Mark is able to do this compassionately and professionally. Following a thorough session where he asked me strategic questions about my current state of health, Mark customized an essence for me. The results were quick and lasting. I experienced a shift almost immediately.
The key to my experience as compared to “going it alone” is that Mark ushered me through layers of healing. One session built on the other, and in the process I felt layers of myself being healed. I highly recommend the experience.”
Joy Keller: Reiki Master www.renegadejoy.com, San Diego
“I gave myself a year to experience how this work would assist me through some emotional blocks. My search for a practitioner led me to Mark’s website. His personalized blends and guidance were very effective in facilitating me through various levels of healing. In one area, we worked with my emotional phases towards honoring becoming a mother. After much work and many breakthroughs I am now a proud mother of a healthy baby boy. His service is very genuine and personable. He is my family’s flower essence practitioner.”
Lina Vazquez, Neuromuscular Massage Therapist, Los Angeles, CA
“I felt better just having a consultation with Mark. The safe space he provides helped me to open and shed light on guilt I had been carrying for years and to shed this pattern and move forward with confidence”
Emily McIntire, New York
“Mark, through his listening and expertise, developed a customized program that provided me with a foundation of courage and clarity to dig deep, break out of old patterns and create a new world.”
Travis Rush, New York, New York
“Over the past five months I have been using flower essences, which Mark D’Aquila has personally crafted for me. During these recent challenging times of transition in my life moving from one city to another, leaving a long term relationship, and stepping into a new career path I continued to take the essences he prescribed. As I’ve faced the unknown and dealt with the unexpected requirements of starting a new life without much security, I have been amazed at how much poise, calm, inner strength, and composure I’ve been able to muster in the face of what would normally be an overwhelming life passage. I keep wondering what has been keeping me so calm, and then I remember: ‘I’ve been taking Mark’s essences!” I highly recommend them to anyone needing extra support in their lives right now. Thank you Mark for the love and intention you infuse into your creations.”
Kenneth Lawrence Ferguson (Healer, Performance Artist, Teacher), Los Angeles, CA
“The first Flower Essence I tried was Money Plant and I am amazed and thankful. I received the shipment on Friday, took the first 4 drops that afternoon, and by Saturday morning noticed an immediate shift in my perception. The world suddenly was not so dreary and dull, but looked a bit brighter and there were glimpses of interesting possibilities. Some of my long-held anger had been transmuted into joy, and as for abundance, I immediately started getting more orders for my business and more time requested for my services locally. Now, after having gone a whole week, I am still consistently happier and optimistic. The perceived negatives in my life have either disappeared or are manageable, and LIFE IS GOOD! “
Dianne Onstad, San Diego
“Mark is both a fantastic person and a gifted healer. My work with him continues to be deep, profound, and transformative – always alerting me to new insights and shifts within my life. Empathetic and helpful, he is skilled at distilling what I’m saying and selecting the most appropriate flower essences for my needs. He’s also a great resource for other recommendations that might be helpful for my personal journey. I’m grateful to know him and for what he brings to this world.”
