What Are Flower Essences And How Do They Work?

Flower Essences work on the mind, body and spirit, and are obtained by extracting the healing vibrational quality from the most evolved part of the plant – the flowers. They work on an emotional level, harmonizing negative feelings and belief patterns held in the subconscious mind.

Flower Essences are prepared by imprinting a flower’s unique vibrational healing signature onto a carrier solution of brandy and water. This is achieved by working with flowers, under ideal conditions such as growing in the wild.

These flowers are collected and placed in a bowl of pure water and left in direct sun for several hours. The flowers are then removed from the bowl and the remaining flower water is then added to an equal amount of brandy and this mixture is referred to as the Mother Tincture. The latter is further diluted to produce the stock concentration which in turn is also diluted in order to prepare for correct dosage strength.

There are many brands and makers of flower essences in the work, but it all began with Dr Edward Bach.

It is said that Dr Bach felt negative emotions when wandering in a garden, and when he moved closer to specific flowers the emotion subsided, I can’t recall where I read this, however, I think it may have been in the book “Heal Thyself” many years ago. 

Dr Bach created the Bach Flower Remedies in the 1930's, there are 38 plant and flower based remedies that can help you manage the emotional demands of everyday life. Each remedy aids a specific emotion. You can take them individually or mix them together to match the way you feel.  Bach Original Flower Remedies can help you take control of the way you feel and get more out of life.

One of the original flower essences made in Australia is Ian White of the Australian Bush Flower Essences.  The Australian Bush Flower Remedies are a comprehensive set of remedies made from Australian plants.

Some say that if you originate from the Northern Hemisphere, the Flowers of that area will be more in tune for you, and vice versa the Southern Hemisphere… however this is not always the case, and the best way to know is to try.

In a nutshell, the correct flower remedy will bring your mind, body, and spirit back to a point of balance, where you are then able to choose your path in life and your purpose.
