Flower Essence Therapy requires both an active awareness and an objective observation of an individual’s thoughts, feelings and psyche to determine the mental and emotional issues important to address for their health, well-being and personal (or spiritual) growth. These arising mental and emotional issues are brought into balance through the oral consumption of flower essences or their application to an individual’s aura or pressure points.
Flower essences are aqueous infusions made from the flowering part of a plant. A flower in full bloom is endowed with the highest concentration of life force energy. Each flower has its own unique vibratory ‘signature’ or bioelectrical coding that corresponds with an emotion of state of mind. The energy of this vibratory signature is captured in pure water, under sun or moonlight, and then preserved with organic brandy.
A Flower Essence Therapy practitioner learns, experiences and intuits the vibratory signature of the whole range of flowers with which they work. They facilitate each client’s exploration, and precise awareness, of the mental and emotional issues which the client is experiencing in order to prescribe a single flower essence or a combination of essences to help bring the individual back to a balanced state of emotional and mental wellbeing. Many health and well-being practitioners train in Flower Essence Healing to complement their therapeutic practice with clients
Flower Essence Therapy may appear to be a relatively recent way of working, However, healing through the vibratory signature of flowers can be traced back over many centuries with evidence existing for its use in ancient Egypt, amongst the Celtic Druids and the Aborigines of Australia. The Swiss physician, botanist and alchemist Paracelsus wrote, in the 16th century, of collecting dew from blossoms to treat emotional imbalances and during the 1930’s the physician and homeopath Dr. Edward Bach scientifically documented the vibratory signature of 38 English wildflowers and pioneered the sun infusion method for flower essence preparation.
In recent decades, Findhorn Flower Essences and other flower essences companies around the world have researched the vibratory signature of many more flowers and practitioners repeatedly feedback on the strong vibratory signature captured in Findhorn Flower Essences.
Findhorn Flower Essences has 48 single flower essences, of which, 46 are created from flowers indigenous to the Highlands of Scotland, 2 are created from Japanese flowers and all are created following guidance from nature intelligence channelled by Marion Leigh. Over her 25 years of clinical practice, Marion has also created the Findhorn Flower Essence Essential range of combination essences to address the increased stresses on mind, body and soul, which have arisen since the creation of the original Bach remedies.
