The Essence of Flowers - Alternative Cure

A flower essence is the subtle energy of a flower that has been transferred and braced in water. Flower essences can help acknowledge and resolve different conditioned ways of perceiving everything and can help us experience greater well-being and compatibility in our lives. By creating this harmony within ourselves, we now notice distinct changes in ourselves physically, emotionally and even spiritually. Flower essences help us recognize and free ourselves of destructive patterns of behavior, support us in extending our consciousness beyond its present state. They render a language that helps us to understand our emotions and inner cravings.


Everybody loves flowers. They represent feelings of love, adoration and relationships. But only a few knew that flowers have the capability to heal and prevent illness.

Flower essences are liquid extracts prepared from wildflowers or garden blossoms. The medicine tribes of many cultures have used flower essences since olden times, but only in the past sixty years or so, have they become better known. Flowers have been used for healing since ancient times, but a complete system of flower healing was developed by an English physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930s.

How do flower essence work?

When flower essences are prepared, the specific energy pattern of each flower is transferred to the extract. The unique energy pattern has the ability to affect the energy of the person who takes the essence. They bring awareness of your “soul patterns,” revealing natural possibilities for creativity and emotional, mental and physical growth.

In each 38 remedies, discovered by Dr. Bach is directed at a single feature or emotional state.

This phenomenon is similar to hearing a particularly moving piece of music. Just as the sound waves awaken an experience within us that’s similar to the emotions felt by the composer, the energy patterns of the flower awaken a healing and emotionally fulfilling type of energy.

It is impossible to take an overdose of flower essence; they don’t cause any side effects. They do, however, intensify the mind and emotions at first. People need to be aware that their emotions may be heightened for several days after starting to use a new essence.
