Flower essences are a safe, natural, non-toxic healing modality that help get at the root of symptoms and address specific tendencies in the mind, body, and emotions, supporting deeper healing. Highly effective, gentle, and non-intrusive, they are complimentary to other treatments and supplements.
Flower essences were first developed in the 1930's by Dr. Edward Bach, a British physician. Dr. Bach recognized that the physical symptoms he was treating in his patients were intimately related to their mental and emotional disharmonies. He found that flower remedies were able to address these underlying patterns, and he left his successful medical practice to devote himself fully to their development.
Now, several companies have carried on the work Dr. Bach began. Many companies offer only single-flower essences. Botanical Alchemy Flower Essences are 'Synergistic Blends' of several flowers, which have greatly enhanced potency and support one another towards the desired goal. Bryony has found these gentle but powerful blends to be profoundly transformational on a deep level; she uses them daily for herself and her animals, and recommends them to clients, who have likewise been impressed by their results.
