Flower essences have been used as a form of healing for a very long time. There is evidence that suggests the use of flower essences in ancient Egypt, while Australian aborigines have long known of the benefits of sitting beside a particular flower in order to receive its healing frequency.
Essences can be thought of as a healing modality which is based on the capacity of water to hold, store and transmit information.
They can also be considered emotional tuning forks, helping us back to a balanced state when we are “out of tune” with ourselves and others.
The modern day expert who is acknowledged as the "father" of flower essences is Dr. Edward Bach. Edward Bach was a renowned physician who gave up his Harley Street medical practice to develop flower essences. His objective was to “treat the person, not the disease.”
What Essences are NOT
Essences are not essential oils, which are used in aromatherapy. Essences are the energetic signatures of plants, animals, environments, crystals, etc. captured in water and preserved with alcohol, glycerine, apple cider vinegar and red shiso. Essences do not have any scent, as opposed to aromatherapy oils, which are distilled from plant material.
How do Essences Work?
Essences often work by bringing about or heightening our understanding of what might be wrong with us. You yourself, however, have to be aware, watch for small signs, and note how you feel. You often only know what you are by knowing what you are not!
How are Essences Taken?
Essence drops can be put directly on the tongue, put in a small glass of water and sipped, put in the bath or room spray, put in a burner or rubbed on pulse points. How they are applied is immaterial – some people are so sensitive to their vibration that they only need to hold an essence bottle!
