Flower Essences – flower essences are used in a form of energy medicine that focuses on the emotional and spiritual imbalances that can develop into physical ailments. Flower essences are produced from the buds of flowers, plants and trees, which are infused in water. The result is a therapeutic component that captures the energy of the transformation that occurs in the plant when it blossoms.
The medicinal peoples of many cultures have used flower essences since ancient times, but only in the past 80 years or so, have they become more widely known. This is due to Dr. Edward Bach, a British physician who in the 1930s observed how emotional stress often was the root cause of certain physical complaints.
Since then, it has become well established that the mind and body interact – and if the mind is not in a harmonious state, the results can start to manifest physically. Certain flower essences have been found to capitalize on that connection, by helping to alleviate or minimize a predominant emotion that is driving a mind-body imbalance.
