One of Mother Nature’s most powerful gifts is the flower. Not only are flowers beautiful to look at and smell, but they also promote wellbeing. All around you is an abundance of healing flowers, each bloom with its own unique appearance, fragrance, essence and energies.
Every flower variety has a personality and powerful healing properties. Many flowers are used in naturopathic medicine and flower therapy, in a similar way that herbal plants are used. The colour and fragrance of a flower has potent energy that can enhance your spirituality. Working closely with the healing gifts of nature can help to open up your psychic abilities, and to balance your emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.
Treat yourself to a bouquet of your favourite flowers and be open to exploring their symbolic meaning, restorative properties and potent power. If you are strongly attracted to a particular flower, its energy pattern may be resonating with your out of synch vibration.
What Is Flower Therapy?
Flower therapy is the practice of using flower essences to restore harmony and balance between the mind, body and spirit. Flower essence liquid tinctures – made by immersing fully bloomed flowers in spring water, and placing them in sunlight – can be used to identify and heal the core aspects of emotional and mental imbalances. The healing energy of the flower is transferred to the water and is then made into the flower essence, with added preservatives.
Flower essences can effectively treat many common stress related conditions and ailments. Essences first became a popular complementary healing method in the 1930s, when Dr Edward Bach introduced his first flower infusions. Today, Dr Bach’s floral blended tincture Rescue Remedy is widely sold all around the world.
