Flower Essences are liquid solutions made from individual plant flowers; each containing a specific imprint that responds in a balancing, repairing and rebuilding manner to imbalances on emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
These essences were first created by Dr. Edward Bach who taught that the basis of disease was to be found in the disharmony between spiritual and mental aspects of a being.
These emotional states lower the body's vitality and allows disease to be present. The Flower Essences are for treatment of the mood and temperament of the being, not the physical illness.
Physical disease caused by an emotion does not respond readily to antibiotics or chemical drugs and resists other forms of physical healing as well. This is because the ailment is a symptom and not the disease itself.
Flower Essences can be taken as follows:
1) Give undiluted directly into the mouth.
2) Add several drops of essence to your essential oil massage blend.
