Flower Essences - what they are, how they work and how to use them.
Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions, made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930's, although new remedies from other plant species are now available. Each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion. Mimulus for example, is the remedy for when we are anxious or afraid about something specific. Taking the remedy helps us overcome our fear and face it with courage. The system was designed to be used instinctively and any negative emotional state can be matched to a remedy. During a consultation I use a radionic scan to match the vibrational 'signature' of the remedy to you so that the remedy will always be relevant to your situation.
How do they work?
To understand how flower essences work requires a recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a "body" of life energy, a "body" of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or Self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, and evoke specific qualities within us. We can say that they work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry frequency and vibrational information via the vehicle of sound or light, while the flower essences work through the medium of the carrier substance, that is to say the drops or pills placed on the tongue.
Very much like homeopathic remedies. They come in the form of drops or small pills that are placed on the tongue 2 or 3 times per day as long as symptoms remain.
