Nature can uplift, cleanse, rejuvenate, heal and transform any space. It wouldn’t seem strange to you then that Flower Essence therapy is becoming one of the go to and widely accepted energy and natural healing modalities

Flower Essences encapsulate the healing energy and wisdom of a flower. Each flower has its own healing vibration. If you’re attracted to a certain flower, it’s because on a deep subconscious level it’s calling to you. It can help you move through any issue you’re currently dealing with.

 Flower Essence healing is not new.

 The Aborigines used flower essences as a means for healing themselves, the tribe and the earth 50 thousand years ago. It’s said babies were born into earth pits filled with elixir flowers.

The Boab essence is one that clears negative emotional and mental family patterning, passed from generation to generation. Boab can access and clear those core patterns and all the related ensuing beliefs. The Aborigine’s knew how energy patterns work. They understood that looking after the next generation is part of their cultural heritage and their reason for being.

 I use predominately Australian and West Australian bush flowers. These are said to be one of the most psychically clear on our planet. Australia is in one of the oldest countries on earth. The essences are very strong and very effective. The essence of each wildflower, targets a specific emotional, mental, physical or state
Flower Essences were also used through the Egyptian times and through the times of Pagan ritual. You may have heard of Bach Flower remedies created by Dr Edward Bach in the 1930’s. These are used in much the same way.

What Are Flower Essences?

Flower essences are made specifically from the flower of a plant. The flowers are infused into water. This water encapsulates the healing energy and imprint of the flower. This becomes the “stock” essence. 

Flower Essence Therapy is one of the most environmentally sustained industries in the world. Nothing is harvested or destroyed through the process of making Flower Essences.

 Flower essences are a non-evasive healing modality that empowers positive change and insight on a very deep level. They bring about an inner awareness for change and bring sub-conscious fears conscious.
Positive changes include feeling calm, improved and deeper sleep, increased confidence and self esteem, a greater inner connection, greater awareness, improved focus and cognition.
Flower Essences may influence our behaviour, helping us to realign and bring a sense of inner peace, or awaken our insight so we can be making better choices for ourselves.
They aid in the release of old traumas and ancestral patterning bring about much needed peace and healing.
When you use a flower essence you activate a very deep part of yourself and through this, deep wisdom and awareness can be accessed.

How Do Flower Essences Work?

Flower essences work using the theories of vibration and target core issues. All plants have a unique vibrational energy pattern. They may work almost immediately, over a couple of days or over weeks or months, depending on the issues you are dealing with.

 Research data evidence shows the interrelationship between physical illness, stress and emotional well-being. While flower essences don’t address specific physical ailments such as heart disease or cancer. They do work on an energetic level to address and release unwanted mental and behavioural patterns.
They are very safe and can used by children as young as 6 months
In some cases, if you’re wanting to clear deep emotional traumas, at times you may feel worse before you get better. This can be a short destabilizing effect and as certain negative emotions come to the surface to be released.

How are the Flower Essences Used?

You can use Flower Essences topically or orally. Most commonly you place a few drops under the tongue.
You do this morning and night, depending on what’s needed and the advice of your practitioner. You can also add to your water bottle and sip throughout the day.
Here are some other ways you can use flower essences:
  • I blend flower essences within my Bowen Sessions when needed. Pulsing on the meridian points within the ear. You can read about what Meridian points are here.


  • Baihui Treatment –  this is a very comprehensive healing session. Not for the faint hearted. If you are already on the road of deep inner healing and processing this consultation might be just up your alley. It is a very deep treatment – where the energy of the flowers flow through the entire system. Chosen flowers are placed on the crown of the head and their vibration is absorbed and utilised to bring about insight and answers you may be seeking. Old thought patterning and trauma can be shifted, healed and a new awareness is revealed.  A personalised flower essence is created from this process – one that is deeply resonant.



  • Flower Essences can also be used as oral sprays and also mists to clear negative energy from the environment. 
Flower Essences are taken orally under the tongue, taken usually morning and night, depending on what’s needed and the advice of your practitioner.  You can also add to your water bottle and sip throughout the day. 
I’ve created a series of flower essences that you can use for a specific issue. You can find out what’s available here. 
There’re several wonderful essences on the market. You can never choose the wrong essence. Having a Flower Essence Therapy Treatment is a self nurturing and empowering thing to do for yourself.
The most awesome thing about flower essences is that they have the ability to heal on the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual level. Using their pure vibration and frequency to influence how you feel, see, sense and know.
I cannot stress enough how subtle and empowering flower essences are. They are perfect if you’re super sensitive and empathic. They help and support you to find your own way to wholeness and harmony and by doing this you’re able to live your life completely uninhibited on all levels.
