NATURAL HEALTH AND HEALING: Flower Essences

Leave a comment

How can healing with flowers be wrong?!  Well, it can’t be wrong and it isn’t wrong.  Like all natural healing modalities, flower essences are a gentle and loving way to heal.  Flower essences play an important role in healing and balancing emotions.  Emotions have a whole lot to do with our physical health.

According to English physician Edward Bach, “Behind all disease lies our fears, our anxieties, our greed, our likes, and dislikes.”   If that is true, and I believe it is, then truly flower essences gets to the very root of all of our suffering.  Many experts in alternative medicine attest to the fact that flower essences enhances other healing methods.

Dr. Bach formulated special preparations that later became known as Bach Flower Remedies and even later was renamed Bach Flower Essences.  The essences are sold over the counter or rather online if you do not live near a retailer that carries them.

You can also make your own flower essences by taking flower petals (only the non-poisonous ones), covering them with spring water and setting them out in sunlight for 4 hours.  Strain the flower petal out before taking the essences.  You can also boil the petals in spring water for 30 minutes, then strain before use.  If you don’t plan on using all of the essence quickly, add an equal amount of brandy to the essence and it will keep for quite a long time.

If you don’t have the time or knowledge you feel you need to prepare your own, do an online search to find a retailer that carries Bach Flower Remedies.

If you need a little guidance as to which remedy to use, you can consult any one of the over 800 Bach Flower Registered Practitioners worldwide.  Any of these can located by going to the website:  www.bachcentre.com

I wish you great health and Bright Blessings.

I have never been one to quibble about my age. However, this year, 2010, I turned 50. I realized that life is going way too fast and I can't say that I am crazy about the direction it is going in. So, what else can one do except....blog about it!
