Flower essences are liquid tinctures derived from fully bloomed plants. Every living thing on this planet has an energy and imprinting the energy of the flower’s unique signature can help with emotional and spiritual imbalances.
They can help harmonise subtle energy bodies and release negative beliefs from a subconscious mind.
Flower essences can be used during times of stress, a crisis or changing old behaviour patterns.
I have the Australian Bush, Bach and Orchid essences from which to test from. I also stock the Indigo essences which have proved very helpful for children who they were developed for.
If flower essences test up, I will try to put them together with something else (if I have them in stock) so that there aren’t too many things to take on a daily basis. If it seems that they are a priority to take separately I will either make them up or guide you to where you can get them made up.
BACH FLOWER ESSENCES
Bach flower essences are extracts from flowers which have a positive effect on emotional imbalances and mood swings such as fear, dejection, lack of self-confidence, stress and worrying.
The name comes from Dr. Edward Bach (1886 – 1936) who discovered this healing method at the beginning of the last century. For more than 70 years these flower essences have proved useful for children as well as adults for all kinds of emotional problems. Sleep problems, fear of failure, exam fear, ADHD, sadness, guilt, concentration problems. These are all but a few examples where Bach Flower Essences have been successfully used with good results.
How Bach flower essences work
Bach Flower Essences have the quality and ability to change a negative emotion into a positive one. For instance a person with a low self-esteem will, after taking specific flower essences, start to believe in him or herself again and will be more self-confident dealing with the day-to-day things.
Negative emotions are not suppressed but turned into the opposite positive emotional state. For example, fear of failure into self-confidence or impatience into calmness and tranquillity. Source

INDIGO GEM ESSENCES
These extraordinary Indigo gem essences were created in Ireland by Ann Callaghan, her nephews Ben and Mica and their ‘team’. We had already been drawn to them and were getting great results when Ann asked us if we would like to make them available to customers in the UK for her. We are delighted to be doing so. So many people who come into contact with the Indigo gem essences are captivated by their lightness and strength. These characteristics also allow children to open themselves to their healing qualities and Indigo Essences have been especially formulated to help the new children stay balanced and fairly sane through these times of intense change.
These ‘Indigo’ children can have a very difficult time integrating with others, both at home and in school and many of them have very strong energy and definite views about life which can be challenging both for the children and for their care givers. Ann says “One of the biggest problems for children is not being listened to and understood. A lot of adults are very bad communicators and don’t know how to really listen to children which in turn leads to the children resorting to more extreme behaviours to try and get their point across. Listening to your child is key to growing together harmoniously as a family. If you are having a stressful time at home a combination of good communication and essences will help to move energy very quickly.
Of course there is a child in all of us and the Indigo Essences can be used by anyone who recognises that their own child needs some healing and support. Source
LIVING TREE ORCHID ESSENCES
The essences have been carefully co-created in their initial years (starting in 1998) at our earlier base The Living Tree in the Milland valley in West Sussex. Their home is now on the Isle of Gigha in Scotland, which is also where the bottling and distribution is carried out. Made with orchids grown in greenhouses, and using a non-cutting method for the essence making, these essences depart from some aspects of traditional essence making.
Once one encounters the profound beauty and depth of being found in these orchids, a non-cutting approach feels compelling. And the fact that the orchids are in an artificial environment may seem at first impression rather odd; but one may also see that these plants are volunteering to work directly with us, and have entered into interaction with us very consciously.
Made primarily by Don Dennis and Heather Decam, with Natalie Shaw and Dominic Jones also participating, nearly all of the essences were made by a male & female team. Peter Tadd and Heather DeCam provided the major share of the information on each essence, along with feedback over the years from our friends and customers around the world.
One distinguishing feature of orchid essences in general is their ability to act upon the chakras which exist above our body. This combines with their action in the body to create very powerful shifts in our energy fields, often with very immediate effect. They also have an overall strong focus on helping us directly in relation to our spiritual path. Source
