Flower essences are vibrational natural remedies that create subtle but very powerful shifts within the body. They have been used for thousands of years in some cultures and were made popular in Western Medicine by Dr Edward Bach in the 1930’s (you may already know of Bach flower remedies or the Bach Rescue Remedy which are based on the English native flowers).
They are water based and contain NO essential oils or fragrance. There is no physical component of the flower left in the flower essence remedies (so are very non-reactive) and along with the carrier of pure distilled water, they simply contain the energetic imprint of the flower which can have an amazing effect on our energy body.
I use different blends of Australian Bush Flower essences as I believe they have a stronger frequency and work better in stronger personalities and constitutions. Nowadays, flower essences are used by naturopaths, acupuncturists, energy healers, kinesiologists, homeopaths, paramedics and by some mental health practitioners.
So basically the essences are targeting the nervous system and provide an energetic release of stored emotions that may be blocking you from achieving emotional and physical balance.
The body is always trying to reach a state of balance but due to living life with all its stresses and busyness, we sometimes carry the road blocks that prevent us from getting where we want to go. Once the emotion or memory has been released from the subconscious, the physical issue that came about from this emotion has the freedom to go back into balance.
To sum up, flower essences are an energetic remedy that are extremely safe for all ages and if you’re wondering how they differ from essential oils please see my answer to that frequently asked question below.
