Researching Essences & Dr. Bach's Legacy

How do we know what an individual flower essence does? How do we learn the direction and range of its effect on the emotions, the mind, the physical tissues? Although there are many ways that this is done today (e.g., intuition, taking the essence and tracking one’s response, using channeled information), we believe that application and research are the most dependable. Until an essence is given to a large number of people of various temperaments and health backgrounds, there can be no dependable claim of its effects.
 
There are only a few flower essence producers today who honor the Bach tradition of empirical testing, and these companies have been dedicated to this sole pursuit for decades. I began this inquiry in the late 1980s when I was able to use a few essences to clear up my daughter’s eczema. This had a profound effect on me, and I started to wonder what else flower essences might be able to do.
 
To learn about the essences, I have maintained a busy practice for nearly three decades, using only flower essences and gem elixirs with clients of all ages and temperaments, with a wide variety of health problems. To my delight and amazement, I have found that addressing illness on the vibrational level yields dramatic changes in health, vitality and inner strength.
 
Because our society generally turns to logic and the scientific method to define our reality, it may be difficult for some of us to look beyond the emphasis that science and modern medicine have put on our world view and to trust energetic alternatives to this paradigm. We are still looking to kill invading microbes rather than explore the reasons why the system, as a whole, becomes susceptible to illness. We are still chasing symptoms rather than deeply considering what may have caused these issues to appear.
 
At Delta Gardens, we have continued to honor and develop Dr. Bach’s work. We have indeed found that mental and emotional imbalances can weaken the physical tissues and invite disease. We have found that daily stress, chronic anxiety, imprints of past traumatic events, discouragement, hopelessness, unhealthy relationships (to name a few) are all complicit in health problems. We have found that the wise application of well-researched flower essences can make dramatic changes both in illness recovery and in general health and well-being.
 
Although learning about flower essences can begin with purchasing and trying a few essences, the real value and potency of these remedies comes by presenting your issues to a trained practitioner who knows how to select and use essences to change the underlying cluster of illness-causing energies and to guide the client to a healthier, more empowered life.

In the 1980’s, as I endured a painful divorce, I found that my spirits rose whenever I gardened near borage plants that had self-seeded throughout my vegetable garden. At that time I became familiar with Dr. Bach’s homeopathic work. Much later I began studying flower essences with Delta Gardens and was not surprised to find my old friend, borage, as a spirit-lifter and bringer of peace.

I enjoy keeping records on flower essences. I find it validating to research the patterns of change replicated a bit differently in each situation. Common themes emerge over time. The themes discerned through research are more dynamic and memorable than studying a text book. Also, I find that Izene is ever-present, ready to guide and answer questions. Don’t forget to avail yourself of Izene’s wisdom.

For almost forty years, I have witnessed the amazing, merciful healing effects of Flower Essences. To be able to bring such relief so gently seems almost miraculous. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Bach, David Dalton, and all those who have pioneered this critical path. I would like to mention a Flower Essence combination that I have found to be remarkable for relieving the grief of bereavement: Self-Heal with Violet. To be able to offer these healing Essences in such especially painful and challenging circumstances is a great gift. Thank you, David, and all those who explore and offer the great healing afforded by the Essences.

David, just reading your blog brought me a sense of peacefulness. It helped put a new perspective on the sadness I have felt for months over the state of our nation and rekindled hope and energy to work to turn things around. Thank you!

I have come to find that one of the most powerful flower essence for transforming the self is TEASEL.
Teasel stock essence has been used with at least 50 or so of my clients and it seems to be the
one that “wakes people up” in an amazing way. I have seen the power of teasel do its magic work to help people see and feel their truth in almost very area of their lives, and once taken, there seems to be no going back. It provides important guidance for all the change one needs to make in order to be true to themselves once again. I call it “The wake up” essence…

Many do not realize that flower essences cn help with physical illness and issues. Many years ago I was taken by surprise when essences I was taking helped fend off the beginning of a flu so that I was able to teach a workshop I thought I would have to cancel. That was a real eye opener! Since then I have learned more and have been fortunate to study with David Dalton and other essence makers who talk about physical applications of essences. David’s work with challenging illnesses like Lyme and his use of essences from medicinal plants to increase physical health and to help with many conditions continues to be cutting edge!

This direction we traverse is essential to the evolving soul of our planet. We must be vigilant in our examination of what essences work and continue listening to the language of our plant spirits.

Thank you, David, for returning us to the power of Dr. Bach’s original work . . . and thank you for continuing his legacy. His insight that “flowers cure not by attacking the disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our higher nature, in the present of which disease melts away snow in the sunshine” is as revolutionary now as it was eighty-plus years ago.

Oh David, I am thrilled to read about your experience. My initial experience with flower essences began when I lived in the Netherlands and learned solely about the Bach essences.I was taught empirically and my intuition seems to be strongly linked to that experience. I check in each morning to see if I need essences by dousing or just listening and then connect with Overlighting deva of healing, nature etc and then listen. Often I am drawn to the Bach essences or the moon light essences and of course sometimes to teasel and artemisia.
Thank you for all that you offer. I love that I can now be connected through your blog.

Well said as the need for time and application are proven tools. And, if this modality is to be taken seriously it needs the research lest it be discarded to the heap of New Age nonsense. Keep up the good work.
