What Are Flower Essences?
Flower essences are liquid, potentized plant preparations which convey a distinct imprint or etheric pattern of a specific flower. These remarkable remedies expand our understanding of health care, recognizing a relationship between body and soul, and the interweaving of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical aspects of wellness. Flower essences enjoy a reputation of being both highly effective and very safe to use. They are not part of standard biochemical medicine for they contain only minute traces of physical substance. Rather they belong to a new field of potentized remedies which derive their beneficial powers from the inherent life forces within substances. By careful attention to celestial and environmental factors which influence the plant at its stage of blossoming, and rhythmical procedures which further enhance the living properties of each plant remedy, the essence of a specific flower is prepared. Because the remedies contain subtle properties, their primary field of action goes beyond physiological states of being. The remedies are designed to help transform emotions, attitudes or patterns of behavior which hinder our full development or potential. Flower essence therapy is based on the insight that the human being is a microcosm profoundly related to the macrocosm of Nature. The archetypes which are found in the human psyche have their healing correlation to plant archetypes which are living in Nature. Flower essences should not be misconstrued as cure-alls or simplistic panaceas. They are precise tools which can be used by qualified therapists as adjuncts in a wide range of health care programs, or by informed and insightful home-care practitioners. The flower essences work most beneficially as part of a holistic program of health enhancement, including exercise, nourishing diet, stress reduction, inner development and appropriate medical care.

Flower Essences and other Health Modalities
Flower essences are renowned for their universality of application. They are used by thousands of people in diverse circumstances, and as a supplement to many forms of health care. Because the flower essences work at very fundamental levels, yet in such a non-invasive way, they can be used concurrently with other health therapies. What is more, use of the essences can actually enhance other practices by addressing psycho-spiritual issues which may be underlying various health problems. Physicians, nurses, chiropractors, acupuncturists, herbalists, massage practitioners, physical therapists, nutritionists, psychologists, pastoral counselors, social workers, and other professionals find the essences to be an invaluable adjunct to their practices.
