In the one the latest decks by D.Virtue PhD, one card reads Flower essences and suggests the reader either purchase flower essences or grow flowers. Either activity is healthy. Ingesting the essence is considered beneficial for your body and so is the act of gardening since it grounds you, being so close to Mother Earth and you breathe in fresh air, flower fragrance and divine inspiration altogether. So do yourself a favor and either use a flower essence.
If you feel the alcohol is too much, try using a clean small crystal in your water, either quartz, rose quartz or amethyst are common ones although true Gem practitioners use differing gems for different purposes. I myself tried the Rose quartz water and felt on top of the air for so long, it was wonderful.
