Frequently Asked Questions
Flower essences are a well established form of energetic support. They have long been part of the traditions of Earth-based and Shamanic healing. From Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to the Aborigines of Australia, civilizations around the world have revered the power of flowers and used flower essences for emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. Paracelsus, the 15th century botanist and physician, wrote specifically about collecting dew from flowering plants, diluting it, and using the liquid to treat imbalances in his patients. Dr. Edward Bach, a British pathologist and bacteriologist, introduced flower essences in modern times. He discovered a correlation between emotional issues and illness and turned to nature in a quest to discover how to treat the person rather than the illness. In 1928, he developed the first of his flower essences.
In recent times, this ancient modality has experienced a significant evolution, with pioneers in the fields of Nature research and vibrational healing taking the lead in creating innovative flower essences to support people address the challenges they face.
