Flower essences have been used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years with documentations of their use discovered on papyrus scripts in Ancient Egypt. Indigenous Australians also recognised their healing qualities and would use them as part of healing ceremonies.
They came back into mainstream awareness through the work of Dr Edward Bach in the 1930s. He created a range of 38 essences that were suited to people at that time and his Rescue Remedy blend is still popular today.
The practice uses flora, water and sunlight. The water absorbs the vibrational potency of the flora which can then be ingested. When a person ingests a flower essence blend the vibration of that particular essences has an effect or impact on the person’s vibration by what is known as resonance transfer.
However not all flower essences are equal. It is easy to pick some plant material, then steep it in water in sunlight. To produce a flower essence that has true potency requires a great amount of skill of the person making the essence. Herein lies the key to why there is such a range of effectiveness in flower essences.
How do Flower Essences Work?
Flower essences are made using plant material, water and sunlight. The resulting mother or stock flower essence contains the plant vibrations or plant energy. So that when a person ingests or places the drops of the flower essence under their tongue the holistic healing vibration is transferred into their body by a process called resonance transfer.
As vibration or energy moves faster through water this is a very efficient, effective and dynamic and natural way of working with nature. This process works to rebalance the holistic person, their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels by working through the electrical system above and inside the body.
