History of Flower Essences

Flower essences have been used for thousands of years by indigenous cultures as a form of healing and rejuvenation. Flower essences  history dates back centuries, drawing on the belief that plants carry energetic qualities that can positively impact human emotions and wellbeing. 


The modern history of flower essences largely begins with Dr. Edward Bach, a British physician in the early 20th century who developed a set of 38 flower essences, each aimed at addressing specific emotional states or imbalances. Australian Naturopath, Ian White developed the Australian Bush Flower Essences in the 1980s. 

How Flower Essences Work
 Flower essences are made by infusing flowers in water through various methods like sun exposure or boiling. The idea is that the water holds the energetic imprint of the flower. It's believed that when we take a flower essence, its energetic qualities interact with our own energy, influencing emotional states and promoting a sense of balance and wellbeing.


Flower essences are often used as drops taken orally, diluted in water, or applied topically.

Benefits and Usage
 Flower essences are primarily used to address emotional imbalances. They’re believed to help with stress, anxiety, grief, and various emotional issues. Some people use flower essences to support personal development and spiritual growth, aiding in self-awareness and emotional clarity.

Flower essences are often used as complementary therapies alongside other therapies such as counselling, naturopathy, kinesiology.
