What are flower essences?
Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions, made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of wellness.
How do flower essences work?
Flower essences are plant vibrations, plant energy, held in water. Made with plants, pure water and sunshine, they are 100% natural preparations that work holistically to help bring all aspects of the being into alignment.
To understand how flower essences work requires a recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a "body" of life energy, a "body" of sensitivity & feelings, & a spiritual essence or Self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, & evoke specific qualities within us. We can say that they work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry meaning through the vehicle of sound or light, while the flower essences work through the medium of water.
Modern physics has known for nearly a century that matter & consciousness are intertwined.
Since time immemorial, healers & ancient wisdom keepers have been aware of the powerful intelligence that is embedded in nature.
The Australian Aboriginals have always used ﬂowers, water & sunlight to facilitate holistic wellbeing, as did the ancient Egyptians. Native Americans collected dew from ﬂowers, and there has been a tradition of using the energies of plants in the form of vibrational medicine in India, Asia, Europe and South America. The Maori of New Zealand have also used the energy of native ﬂowers and plants in this way to support harmony and balance on all levels, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Today, you can find flower essence ranges available from an array of plants from many countries.
