Frequently Asked Questions
Flower essences are a form of energetic support. They have long been part of Earth-based and Shamanic traditions. From Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to the Aborigines of Australia, civilizations around the world have revered the power of flowers. 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.
