Australian Bush Flower Essences


Flower Essences have a deep and expansive history, they have been widely used across the world by many cultures, and are believed to date back to the ancient cultures of Lemuria & Atlantis.
The earliest recorded modern use of flower essences dates to the 16th century, when the healer and mystic Paracelsus would treat his patients using the dew he collected from flowers.
A more modern pioneer of Flower essences is Dr Edward Bach, who created a selection of 38 individual flower essences and his combination five-flower or rescue remedy. His essences are still produced to this day, years after his death. Most people will probably have come across his Rescue Remedy, which is useful for both people and animals in times of great stress or shock.
Aside from the healing properties of Bach’s essences, they have also been instrumental in making people aware of the concept of flower essences and their totally unique form of healing.
This has paved the way for the various other flower essences that are being created & produced today in our modern world, to tackle modern concerns.
My own personal affiliation is with the Australian Bush Flower Essences, that have been created by Ian White. I have found them particularly powerful for both myself & my animals but it is a matter of personal choice.
Other flower essences beside the Bach & Australian Bush available today are: Alaskan essences, Greek Tree Essences, Bailey Flower essences
Flower essences are simple in their concept, the choosen flowers are put into spring water in a glass dish & left in sunlight to infuse the water with their unique properties. The blooms are then removed & the produced essences combined with a small quantity of brandy to act as a preserving agent, this becomes the mother tincture which will then be diluted further in more water to make a dosage bottle.
