Flower Essences are prepared from the flowers of wild plants, bushes, and trees and are part of the dynamic and emerging field of energy medicine.
Flower Essences do not directly treat physical disease, but help stabilize the emotional and psychological stresses reflecting the root cause such as fear, worry, and trauma.
Dr. Edward Bach's (1886 - 1936) contribution to medicine - his system and philosophy, known as the Bach Flower Remedies provide us with an ideal of health beyond the absence of symptoms.
True well being comes from within. Throughout time, famous healers including Paracelsus, Hippocrates, Hahnemann, and Bach knew good health depended on spiritual, mental, and emotional factors being in harmony.
Indirectly, flower essences help open the way for the physical body to heal by helping to address imbalances in the internal organs from trauma and repressed emotions. For example
toxins are also created by emotional factors. Repressed anger for example completely changes the flora of the gallbladder, bile duct, and small intestine aggravating pitta, causing inflamed areas on the mucous membranes of the stomach and small intestine. Fear and anxiety, in a similar manner alter the flora of the large intestine.
Flower Essence Therapy gently and effectively helps treat these conditions by addressing the repressed emotions rather than suppressing them.
Flower Essence Therapy and Yoga Therapy are a match made in heaven for opening the chakras and
clearing the way for radiant health!
Flower Essence Therapy is a wonderful adjunct
healing modality in the treatment of PTSD.
Current estimates state there are 250,000 to 400,000 flowering species found in regions all over earth.
Flowers have always been loved for their beauty, and flowers also have profound healing gifts to share with us as well. In fact, flowers have been called angelic healing messengers from the Divine realms.
A great example of the healing power of flowers can be found in the flower essence that comes from the Star of Bethlehem Flower. This remarkable and powerful flower essence serves to relieve anxiety, and is often used in formulas that address past or present trauma. Star of Bethlehem is one of the five flower essences used in the very popular Bach Flower formula - Rescue Remedy.
Dr. Bach (1886 - 1936) was a physician, pathologist, immunologist, bacteriologist, and homeopath in England and he discovered and developed the system, philosophy, and healing modality of Flower Essence Therapy. Dr Bach believed that true well-being comes from within with an ideal of health beyond the absence of symptoms.
In his brilliant essay, Heal Thyself, published in 1931 by C.W. Daniel, Dr. Bach states "There is a factor which science is unable to explain on physical grounds, and that is why some people become affected by disease whilst others escape, although both classes may be open to the same possibility of infection. Materialism forgets that there is a factor above the physical plane which in the ordinary course of life protects or renders susceptible any particular individual with regard to disease, of whatever nature it may be."
There is a great story of how Dr. Bach first began to develop his formula for Rescue Remedy. Once two men had tied themselves to the mast of their boat which had become shipwrecked in a gale off the beach on the Norfolk coast of England where Dr. Bach did a lot of his work. The two men were stranded in the howling gale for many hours before help came. One of the men was nearly frozen, foaming at the mouth, and delirious. When the rescuers were bringing the men in, Dr. Bach ran into the water and began applying Rock Rose, Clematis and Impatiens flower essences to the man's lips. These flower essences had such a rapid and powerful effect on the man that he sat up and began talking even before his rescuers could remove his soaking clothing and wrap him in blankets.
Dr. Bach later combined Star of Bethlehem, and Cherry Plum with Rock Rose, Clematis, Impatiens to
make the Rescue Remedy formula.
Today there are thousands of flower essences from many countries around the world available
and sold as both single flower essences and also in combination formulas.
