The Glorious Healing Power of Flower Essences

Flower essences are energy healing remedies. They provide a safe and easy way to help you restore your inner harmony and nourish your emotional well-being.

I love using flower essences! I first encountered these wonders of nature many years ago and have been using them to help myself, my family and others ever since.

And now I would like to share their wonderful healing properties with you!

I am a Certified Australian Bush Flower Essence Practitioner and can provide you with a personalised flower remedy blended by me, to help make your healing journey a whole lot easier.

What Are Flower Essences?

Flowers are much more than the beautiful blooms we admire in the garden. All plants have a unique vibrational energy pattern, and the flower is the pinnacle of this energy. And we can use this energy to help ourselves to heal.

Flower essences, or flower remedies as they are sometimes called, are not the same as essential oils or herbal remedies. Essential oils, such as lavender oil, are physical substances extracted from the plant or flower itself and are used in aromatherapy for their therapeutic value. Herbal remedies contain physical elements of the plant that have a specific medicinal quality, and work on the physical body.

Flower remedies on the other hand, capture the energy imprint of the flower into water. There is no physical part of the flower in the essence, only its healing vibration.

Each different type of flower has a different healing quality. For example, the stunning Sturt Desert Pea has the ability to heal deep hurt and pain that we have been hanging on to for a long time. And the flower of the Billy Goat Plum can help us feel better about our physical bodies.

What Can We Use Them For?

The essences of flowers provide us with a wonderful way to develop, heal and grow. Their uses are endless. From dealing with the day-to-day stresses of life to releasing long-held emotional trauma, they can bring about remarkable changes by acting as an inner catalyst that stimulates our own ability to heal.

They can help us dissolve negative beliefs and reach our highest potential. They release our intrinsic positive qualities such as joy, courage and love.

And their list of benefits is long!

The most wonderful thing about the flower remedies is their ability to promote healing upon all aspects of ourselves - emotional, mental, and spiritual. And when we improve our health on these levels, it can also create a more physically healthy body.

The essences can stimulate lasting changes in our awareness, and that can lead to some pretty amazing shifts in our emotions and behaviours.

The remedies are totally safe and can be used by everybody, from babies to the elderly, and also pregnant women, animals and even plants.

How Do the Flower Remedies Work?

We are more than just a physical body. We are made up of various layers of energy, including those you may have heard of such as aura, chakras and meridians.

The flower essences work by balancing those parts of our energy systems that may not be flowing as well as they could. When we have imbalances or misalignment in our energy bodies, this can create emotional, mental and eventually physical symptoms that don't reflect who we really are.

The energy vibrations of the remedies work to correct the vibrations of our own energy patterns, thereby restoring our natural balance, relieving our symptoms and bringing about inner harmony.

This is just a brief description of how these amazing remedies work. For a more in-depth explanation please visit my page How Flower Essences Work.

Different Systems of Essences

The development of the Australian Bush Flower Essences first began in the 1980's by Ian White, and these essences are now used widely throughout the world. As I am Australian myself I really love these remedies and this is the system I mainly use. I also have the wonderful advantage of being able to venture into the Australian bush and see many of these flowers growing in their natural habitat.

Also very well known are the Bach Flower Remedies which originated in the English countryside in the 1930's, and the popular Rescue Remedy is made from a combination of five of these essences.

There are also many other essences made from blooms in other countries.

The applications for flower essences are virtually endless. From stress and anxiety to lack of self esteem; from guilt to constant worrying - there is a flower remedy that can assist us in any situation.

Some Examples of How I Have Used Flower Therapy


Case 1
A friend whose marriage had ended was really struggling to let go and move on. Initially I gave her remedies to help her cope with the sudden shock of finding herself alone. This helped her get through the feelings of extreme despair and wanting to "end it all". I also included an
essence to help soften the raw feelings of grief and sadness that one feels when a relationship is ending.

After she had moved through her initial despair, I prescribed her a remedy that:
- helped ease her obsession about driving past her ex-partner's house to see what he was doing
- allowed her to let go of the past and move forward
- helped release long-held pain and hurt that went right back to the early days of the marriage
- helped her let go of her anger and resentment
- gave her strength and courage

These remedies really supported her during this traumatic time in her life.

Case 2
A five-year-old boy had an incident at school where the teacher would not let him go to the toilet when he asked and he wet his pants in the classroom. Subsequently, he was terrified of wetting his pants again, and would go to the toilet every five minutes. He even stopped drinking
so he wouldn't need to go.

I gave a flower essence combination to help him:
- lessen the feelings of embarrassment and concern over what the other children might be thinking of him
- overcome his fear of it happening again, and his obsession with constantly going to the toilet
- help him regain his confidence and his strength.

And we were all thrilled when, within a few weeks, this young boy had completely recovered from his ordeal and hasn't had a problem since. I have seen some wonderful results when working with the flower remedies and children.  

Case 3
One of the main areas the remedies have helped me is with a long-term lack of self esteem and confidence. For most of my life I felt incredibly shy and self-conscious, never feeling good enough at anything and believing that others thought very little of me.

I have used the essences to work on these issues, and now I am confident and comfortable in my own skin and in my abilities. I am also totally at ease in other people's company, when previously I felt quite vulnerable.

And now I work in people-related roles and I love it.

Using flower essences won't change your circumstances, but they can change the way you respond, and give you the strength and the courage to get through difficult situations.

They release unwanted negative thought patterns, behaviours and deep-seated emotions. They help you find the inner courage you never thought you had.

Layer by layer, they can help you restore your inner harmony, without the pain and the trauma.

And they can provide the catalyst needed for self empowerment - for you to be who you truly are!
