What are Flower Essences and How do They Work?
Flower Essences are energetic mediums that contain the healing vibration of love. They encompass healing the soul, spirit, mind and body. They are safe, gentle and effective.
Flower essences are water based essences derived from individual flowers. Each flower contains subtle vibrational energies that correspond to our own vibrational energies. These energies are similar to an electrical charge that energizes the water thereby changing its molecular structure. This water then holds the vibrations of the individual flower as a therapeutic substance called essence. This concept is similar to Dr. Emoto's work with changing the crystaline structure of water by giving it the vibrations of love, gratitude and other positive energies.
Flower essences are subtle energies that are harmonious with our own vibrational or auric fields. They interact with our emotional, spiritual and life force energies. By doing this they also open up the channels for physical healing as well. This is because they connect directly with our own Qi or life force energy. Whenever there is a blockage in the flow of Qi from any cause, physical health will be impaired. Emotional issues can cause the blockage of Qi. So by releasing and healing the emotional blockage, the physical healing will follow as well.
Dr. Edward Bach was a homeopathic doctor who developed this revolutionary healing concept in the late 1920's and early 1930's in England. Homeopathics are also a vibrational healing modality which focuses mainly on physical healing. He was searching for vibrational healing energies that would heal emotional, mental and spiritual issues, including severe cases of trauma and psychological problems. He researched extensively with specific flowers and determined that each flower contains a certain "soul energy" or frequency that can heal corresponding emotional energy blockages. He then developed two methods to extract the flower's soul essence from the petals.
Dr. Bach explained how the essences work: "The action of these essences is to raise our vibrations and open up our channels for the reception of the Spiritual Self, to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault that is causing the harm."
Flower Essences are often confused with essential oils or aromatherapy. Essential oils are oil extracts physically taken from various plants and flowers which are then refined by a chemical process making them highly concentrated. Most are used topically on the skin and are primarily for physical healing. Flower essences and essential oils are actually complementary healing modalities that are almost opposite in nature. Flower Essences have no aroma as an oil does. Flower essences are derived only from flowers, not leaves or other parts of a plant. Flower essences only contain the vibrational healing essence of the flower they represent.
Flower Essences are incredibly effective when used properly. They work so gently and invisibly while creating immediate shifts in perception and consciousness; in other words, we just feel and respond better to situations. Results can be very remarkable, especially effective for children, teens and pets.

”Our outlook on life depends on the nearness of the personality to the Soul. The closer the union, the greater the harmony and peace, and the more clearly will shine the light of truth and the radiant happiness which is of the higher realms”……. Dr. Edward Bach, Heal Thyself, 1931
