  Flower Essences  

Flower Essence Therapy
 

The second part of our journey is finding a flower essence (or two or three) that will teach your inner self how to better “be” with the particular situation at hand.

Flower essences are subtle liquid extracts used to address profound issues of emotional well-being and mind-body health. This application of flower essences for specific emotions and attitudes was first developed by the English physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930’s. Flower essences are usually prepared from a sun infusion of wildflowers or pristine garden blossoms in a bowl of water, which is further diluted and potentized, and preserved with brandy or glycerin. I use glycerin - it imparts a sweetness to the essence. Preparation requires careful attention to the environment, the vibrancy and potency of the blossoms, celestial and meteorological conditions, and the physical and energetic properties of the plant through its cycles of growth.

Flower essences work because the plant’s life forces are transferred to the solution. Flower essences are vibrational in nature. They are highly dilute from a physical point of view, but have subtle power as potentized substances, embodying the specific energetic patterns of each flower. Their impact does not derive from any direct bio-chemical interaction within the body’s physiology. Rather, flower essences work through the body’s energy fields, which in turn influence mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
 

The action of flower essences can be compared to the effects we experience from hearing a particularly moving piece of music, or seeing an inspirational work of art. The light or sound waves that reach our senses may evoke profound feelings in our soul, which indirectly affect our breathing, pulse rate, and other physical states. This does not happen by direct physical or chemical intervention in our bodies. It is the contour and arrangement of the light or sounds that awakens an experience within our own souls similar to that which arose within the soul of the creator of the musical or art form. This is the phenomenon of resonance, as when a guitar string sounds when a matching note is sung. In a similar way, the specific structure and shape of the life forces conveyed by each flower essence resonate with, and awaken, particular qualities within the human soul. And so, the “message” of the plant essence is what is incorporated into our beings - the message that the plant has learned as it matured and interacted with the environment around it.

I have used flower essences for many years on both my human and animal clients with wonderful results.
