A flower essence is the vibrational imprint of a flower in water. It is then bottled and stabilized for potential long term use. Flower essences allow awareness and provide an opportunity for us to release and resolve limiting ways of behavior. They allow us to create harmony within ourselves and heal physically, and emotionally. In this state we are in alignment with who we truly are.
Flower essences support us in expanding our consciousness, and connect us with an understanding of our emotional and spiritual needs. This allows us to experience a greater over all well being.
The use of flower essences has been in existence for centuries. Documentation has been discovered that the Druids used them and flowers preserved in honey have been found in the tombs of Egypt. It is also known that forms of water and flower infusions have been incorporated into almost every culture and tribe. They were and still are utilized in ways of spiritual healing and over all emotional health.
In the early 1930's Dr. Edward Bach, a British Homeopath, recognized the capacity of healing found with flowers growing along the English countryside. He began a selection of 38 flowers, began a process of infusing the energy found in them with water. He documented in writing these 38 flowers and the effect they had on his patients. He found that treating his patients from a total mind, body, spirit perspective that healing happened with very positive results. He researched the history of using flower infused waters and reintroduced this ancient healing art for our modern times.
Today flower essences are not limited to what was created long ago. Many new essences have been created all over the world. Flowers are selected and still researched for the healing qualities that they hold. Collections are obtained and utilized by holistic healers world wide. Some are created by Spiritual guidance and the needs of clients. Some favorites that I like to utilize are the Australian Bush Essences. I find they are most effective for over all spiritual and emotional needs. I am passionate about combining just the right flower essences for just the right needs.
