What are Flower Essences?
Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions, made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930's, although new remedies from other plant species are now available.
How do flower essences work?
To understand how flower essences work requires a recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a "body" of life energy, a "body" of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or Self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, and evoke specific qualities within us. We can say that they work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry meaning through the vehicle of sound or light, while the flower essences work through the medium of water.
Modern physics has known for nearly a century that matter and consciousness are intertwined. However, medical science still generally works with a nineteenth century model of the human being as a mechanism in a world of machines. If we have depression, anxiety or other major mental health issues, we are often issued a drug, or referred by our doctor to a psychiatrist for brain chemical imbalance.
In some ways, the best approach to dealing with emotional conditions is through Dharma (spiritual practice). Once mastered, you don't need to buy remedies and you can take the practice with you where ever and when ever. "The Practice of Dharma (Spiritual Practice) can work like a sedative and be just as effective and fast acting for killing emotional pain as Alcohol, Drugs, or Psychiatric Medications. But most people on the Spiritual Path don't know how to get this kind of a sedative." Doug Remington
For those who cannot master the spiritual path, we recommend the use of flower essence remedies for converting negatives to the equal opposites - virtues. The result is overcoming alomost any form of emotional condition.
We expect that in the coming century medical science will develop ways of studying the impact of consciousness on health, and we will learn more about the ways in which flower essences work. However, empirical research, which consists of the collection of case studies and practitioner reports, will remain the primary source of knowledge about how flower essences work.
