Flower essences are liquid, energetic remedies made from the flowers of living plants. First developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s, flower essences are made by exposing a water-flower infusion to direct sunlight or moonlight for a specific period of time. The flowers are then removed, and the remaining liquid is combined with brandy or vinegar to preserve the properties of the essence.
When ingested or applied to the skin, flower essences introduce the energy of a particular plant into the human system. Each essence has its own energetic imprint and area of influence and can help restore balance and harmony to systems destabilized by emotional, mental and physical patterns.
