  • What is the History of Flower Essences?

    The Elders have asked that the morning after every full moon at 10:00 AM that we gather and that we go outside and we look to the Sun, to the flowers, and to the heart of the earth...In doing so we bring more solar energy and flower wisdom to the earth, because the next age is the Age of Flowers. Flowers are our medicine for the next age. ~ Ven. Dhyana Ywahoo

    There have been many pioneers in the field of alternative medicine through the ages who have listened with heart to receive nature’s teachings and healing powers. Pioneering work in these fields has brought to our attention the healing properties of high vibrational plant medicines known as homeopathy, aromatherapy, medicinal herbs, and flower essences. The word vibration has become synonymous with energy, for we have learned that our bodies are fields of vibrating energy. In this article we will explore the vibrational healing modalities known as Flower Essences and Flower Essence Therapies.

    It was the work of a sensitive and dedicated physician, Dr. Edward Bach, which first started to characterize the healing properties of these preparations. Dr. Bach was a medical doctor who had an interest in homeopathy. 

    The Bach Remedies - established in 1936 - act as a form of supportive therapy. Having proven themselves in this form for an unblemished fifty years or more, they are now in great demand throughout the world as a non-medicinal adjunct to various forms of treatments. They are, therefore, an integral part of the whole healing spectrum, not as an alternative or interfering vehicle, but as a very respected complement to many restorative treatments and therapies. 

    Such operational healing modalities are, in general, not new. Flower essences no doubt existed long before Dr. Bach's discovery, for example. In fact, it is conjectured by mystics and historians alike that they were widely in use in Atlantis, Lemuria and, of course, ancient Egypt. Similarly, sound and color vibrations are thought to have played a very significant and therapeutic role in Egypt. Also, China has embraced flowers for their healing properties for centuries and the art of gem healing was and continues to be a common practice throughout Asia.

  • What is Isha's Experience with Flower Essences?

    I was introduced to the flower remedies while living at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland during the mid 1970’s. The community’s focus was to embrace the co-creative energies between nature and humanity, offering the opportunity to commune with nature as a bridge to exploring the soul of humanity. Having previously lived in Hawaii for three years, I was prepared to open even further the magical qualities of flowers and their healing forces. After many years of study and engagement with the world of flowers, flower essences, and flower essence preparation, I embarked upon the creation of my book/deck set entitled “The Power of Flowers” as a means to unite the world of flowers with the archetypal soul patterns of humanity.

    In the Power of Flowers book, each flower is described according to six categories: Blessing, Plant Signature, Flower Essence Description, Archetype, Healing and Practical Application. I interweave the healing qualities of the flowers into my astrology practice and teachings.

    There is no greater honor than to offer the healing properties of flowers to the world. After many years of flower essence preparation and study, I have founded the Power of Flower Healing Essence Company, offering flower remedies created from wild flowers in the Northwest Mountains, Hawaii, and desert regions.

    And may we ever have gratitude in hearts that the great Creator in all His glory has placed the herbs in the field for our healing. - Dr. Edward Bach

  • What are Flower Essences?

    A Flower Essence is a living energetic medicine made from the biological imprint of the living plant's vibrations in water. Flower Essences are created and preserved in pure spring water and a preservative (brandy, vodka or vinegar), and taken orally under the tongue or applied to the body. When a person places a few drops of a flower's essence under the tongue, the energy of the flower, vibrating at its own special frequencies, floods one's aura. The flower's vibrations are now within the body/aura's vibrations and the flower's vibrations will harmonize the body/aura vibrations to its own special harmonies, with the help of the flower's signature vibrations.

    Flower Essences are a fascinating and powerful way to work with plants for healing. They contain an absolute minimum of biological or chemical material, offering one the sacred energies of the flower's essences in vibrations imprinted within the water/preservative mixture. Flower Essences are water-based solutions which contain the essential energies of flowers. They are made by floating flowers in water and allowing the light of the sun, or the moon or the stars, to allow the water to absorb the particular energy signature of the flowers. The structure of water istores these vibrational signatures within itself.

    Unhealthy emotional patterns can cause tensions of energy within the body, tightness in the muscles and these block the natural flow of energies in our bodies, and so parts of us cease to vibrate in harmony with the whole. In our healing of unhealthy patterns, we may relieve physical dis-ease we have collected. The Flower Essences fill our auras with the vibrations they contain and release energy blockages that keep us from vibrating at our natural frequency. The vibrations of the flower's sunlight are now stored and felt in the subtle, and not so subtle, awareness.

  • How Do I Take Flower Essences?

    You can take 1/2 dropper of the essence under the tongue four times a day, or add 1/2 dropper full to your daily water bottle. You may choose to do both.

    You can also bathe with flower essences by putting a dropper full of your essence into a bath. Or you can apply the essence topically on the soles of the feet, the inside of the wrist, the nape of the neck, and more carefully, the temples and the center of the forehead.

    It is often suggested that the essences be taken first thing in the morning, and again when retiring at night. They must be stored in a cool, dry area in order to preserve their shelf life. They may grow mold or bacteria if left in the hot sun or exposed to excessive light. Do not keep them in a hot car or room in your home, especially if you are storing stock bottles for use as a practitioner.

    Enjoy the splendor of your flower essences, and may you prosper and live well.

  • How Are Essences Made?

    It is not feasible to generate enough flower essences for a growing population by collecting dew from the plant; therefore, a more efficient alchemical process has been developed. The system involves placing flower petals or plant leaves and stems in a clear glass or crystal bowl of clear spring water which is then set in the sun for a certain prescribed period of time so that the healing properties of the flower can be transferred from the flower to the water. The soul consciousness of the person collecting the essence is an important part of the equation, as is the placement of moon, stars and planets, at the time the essence is made. Once the essence or pattern of the flower is transferred to the water, the water is carefully collected in sterilized Mother Stock bottles and preserved with an equal amount of preservative, and made available for use.

    When the elixir is complete, the pattern, or energy medicine, of the flower has been released into the water. With the aid of Kirlean photography, beautiful shapes and designs can be seen in each individual water droplet, revealing the unique qualities of the particular flower essence. Nature has various ways of showing herself to us. Our greatest mysteries are imprinted in our own souls in the form of refined energetic etchings, which we then seek to replicate. Each flower essence resonates a tone, frequency, color and light body that mirrors aspects of human development and evolution. Nature and humanity work hand in hand in order to interweave divine love with the experience of incarnation and earth consciousness. It is nothing less than a beautiful art, a divine work of spiritual principles, for the essences balance, refine and engage each individual with a greater understanding of nature, the earth kingdom and the alchemical mysteries: As Above, So Below.

  • Can I Make Flower Essences at Home?

    Listed below are some of the items you will need to make an essence:

    • Clear glass bowl (not a cut crystal bowl as the pattern of the cut crystal will infuse into the essence) 
    • Boston Round amber bottles (one quart-size bottle for the Mother Stock and two, 1 1/2 ounce dropper bottles for storage and remedy preparation) 
    • Sterilized funnel 
    • Beakers 
    • Long surgery tweezers 
    • Tongs 
    • Clean cotton gloves 
    • Clean flat plate 
    • Brandy, vodka or vinegar to act as a preservative 
    • Clear spring water 
    • Notebook and journal 
    • Mosquito net, if out in the woods or mountain slopes 
    • Large hotpad mitts to put your bottle of Mother Stock in after it has been prepared to protect it from heat and breakage 
    • A sturdy backpack to carry tools and items if hiking out in the woods or mountains 
    • A wild flower handbook or guide 
    • Crystal gemstone to place near the bowl for protection and clearing of energy 
    • Bonsai cutting sheers 
    • A sunny day with few or patchy clouds It is best to begin preparation in the early morning. 

    Gather all tools and needed items, attune to the area where you wish to make the essence, and try to get the essence going by 9:00 or 9:30 a.m. The essence will take 2 1/2 to 3 hours to make.

    Identify the flowers you wish to gather in the most non-intrusive manner possible. The less contact you have with the natural space and the plant, itself, the better. Note where you will place the bowl of spring water and place it there, ready to receive the flowers before you pick the blossoms. I check my essence every now and then, however, I do not go very near as I am aware of the magic circle of fairy light that is weaving this elixir into a healing remedy. I don’t want to disturb this process.

    One develops an enchanting relationship with nature when making essences. Try it yourself and see what happens!

  • ​How are Flower Essences Used as a Healing Modality?

    In the words of Edward Bach:

    "The action of these Remedies is to raise our vibrations and open up our channels for the reception of our Spiritual Self; to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault which is causing harm. They are able, like beautiful music or any glorious uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our souls, and by that very act bring us peace and relieve our sufferings. They cure, not by attacking disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our Higher Nature, in the presence of whom disease melts away as snow in the sunshine.

  • What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Flower Essence Application?

    Flower Essence remedies have the advantage of being completely safe. They contain little, if any, organic material that could cause physical ill-effects or allergies. All of the energies involved are positive, and if an inappropriate remedy is chosen, there is never an adverse affect. Therefore, self-prescription can do no harm as long as serious conditions that need medical attention are not ignored. One can learn about the effects of the flower's essences by trying them without taking any risk. It is recommended, however, to respect the laws of nature and the balance of the body. Everything is moderation is applied to flower essence use as well.

    Unlike homeopathic remedies, Flower Essences are not affected by aromatics such as coffee or mint: they can be taken with food or any other substance and be effective. Their benefits for the emotions are not based on any sort of physical effect on the nervous system so they are non-addictive.

    Flower Essences work on the emotions in harmony with Spirit, and their effects can take some time to manifest on a physical level. If one is open to change, their effect can be dramatic indeed, but if one resists the nudge of healing that the flowers offer, they may have little visible effect in the short run. Continued use, however, will eventually layer down the resistance of the individual, allowing the flowers to weave their healing powers within the soul.

  • Who is Dr. Bach?

    Vibrational Healing and the Work of Dr. Edward Bach

    One of the great names in the field of vibrational healing is Edward Bach, the founding father of the Bach Flower Remedies. Edward Bach brought flower essence as a healing modality to the attention of the medical establishment in England in the 1930’s. A medical doctor steeped in the field of homeopathy, Dr. Bach began to case study the healing effects of the flower’s essence, which he had discovered while collecting dew drops from plants at dawn. Theorizing that such drops contained the energy pattern or signature of the plant from which is was derived, he further supposed that when ingested by human beings, the essence of the flower would match the vibrational patterns stored within the genetic storehouse of the human being. From these astute observations came the famous Bach Flower Remedies. Dr. Bach’s famous work has opened the door to the empirical study of flowers and their vibrational healing qualities. Knowledge of the flower essences today is rapidly growing as more and more medical and progressive practitioners turn to them as a healing modality with adults, children, animals, and even the plants themselves.

    Dr. Bach advocated an astute medical model that honored the individuation and healing powers of all people. He inspired humanity to seek emotional harmony and balance within body, mind, and soul as a means toward happiness, service and good health. He was disturbed to discover that when administering the exact same medicine to two different individuals with the same illness, each individual would respond differently; some would heal, others would remain ill, while some perish.

    His 38 remedies have aided humanity for over sixty years, inspiring other, like minded individuals to engage in similar efforts creating new varieties of flowers essences for the greater good.

  • What Does Dr. Bach Say About Flower Essences?

    "There are great qualities in which all men and women are gradually perfecting themselves, possibly concentrating upon one or two at a time. They are those which have been manifested in the earthly lives of all the great masters who have, from time to time, come into the world to teach us, and help us to seethe easy and simple ways of overcoming all our difficulties. These are such as: LOVE, SYMPATHY, PEACE, STEADFASTNESS, GENTLENESS, STRENGTH, UNDERSTANDING, TOLERANCE, WISDOM,FORGIVENESS, COURAGE, and JOY.

    And it is by perfecting these qualities in ourselves that each one of us is raising the whole world a step nearer to its final unthinkably glorious goal. We realize then that we are seeking no selfish gain or personal merit, but that every single human being, rich or poor, high or low, is of the same importance in the Divine Plan, and is given the same mighty privilege of being a savior of the world simply by knowing that he/she is a perfect child of the Creator.

    As there are these qualities, these steps to perfection, so there are hindrances, or interferences which serve to strengthen us in our determination to stand firm. These are the real causes of disease, and are of such as: RESTRAINT, FEAR, RESTLESSNESS, INDECISION, INDIFFERENCE, WEAKNESS, DOUBT, OVER-ENTHUSIASM, IGNORANCE, IMPATIENCE, TERROR, and GRIEF.

    Real health is happiness and happiness so easy of attainment because it is happiness in small things, doing the things that we really love to do, being with the people that we truly like. There is no strain, no effort, no striving for the unattainable. Health is there for us to accept any time we like."
