Using Flower Essences

Flower essences to assist you on your spiritual journey

flower essencesThe most well-known flower essences currently are the Bach flower remedies – dilutions of flower material developed by Edward Bach, an English physician and homeopath, in the 1930s.

The remedies are intended primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress.

They help us move stuck energy when we are in crisis and can assist in relief of emotional conditions and on the journey to spiritual growth.

What are flower essences and how are they made?

There are 38 different Bach flower essences.

They intentionally do not contain any traditional medicinal plants and their flowers contain no toxins.

Flower essences are made by floating the freshly picked flowers in a bowl of pure water in sunlight.  Once a diffusion of the flowers has taken place, the essence is preserved with brandy, vodka or vinegar.

Rescue Remedy, the most well-known of the Flower EssencesFlower Essences

You may have heard of Rescue Remedy, which can be used to alleviate symptoms of extreme stress.

I give to it my children after a bad fall or scrape to help them release stress and become comfortable, or to ease the first day of school nerves.

As someone who gives presentations to groups, I have always found the Bach Olive very useful, it takes the edge off with nerves – when I get that ‘I’m about to speak in public’ feeling.

Flower Essences used by the stars

From the Bach Flower website  Did you know…. that Jay McCarrol, the winner of the reality TV show Project Runway, used Rescue Remedy on the show’s grand finale?  Jennifer Anniston says it keeps her cool under pressure.

Cate Blanchett swears by it, and Salma Hayek has been a fan for years.  Martha Stewart uses Rescue Remedy and Rescue Sleep.

Van Morrison ordered Rescue Remedy before his performance in Texas, 2010.

Tough Day?  Try Using a Flower Essence

Flower essences are great for emotional balancing and for that ‘difficult’ day.

You can put drops or spray straight into your mouth, or put some drops in water or juice, or your water bottle for the day, and take them that way.

Flower essence practitioners can use essences to assist you with specific issues.

I use the Range of Light kit from Flower Essence Services (FES) for clients who are receiving energy balancing work, or feel they need some extra assistance with a shift in vibration.
