What is Flower Remedies Therapy?

Updated: Sep 18, 2022

Flower Remedies therapy are a type of vibrational healing. A safe and natural alternative method of healing, Flower Remedies or Essences (we will use here the terms "essences" and "remedies" simultaneously) help alleviate and treat psychological and psychosomatic problems. Mainly working on the spiritual, mental and emotional energetic level, they gently restore the balance between the mind and the body by casting out negative emotions, such as fear, worry, hatred and indecision, which interfere with the equilibrium of the healing as a whole. Once anything on those levels gets released, physical healing takes place.

Flower Essences work because they have a high rate of vibration - this comes because they are made from living plant material, blossoms, plants, trees, bushes. There are many flower systems, most commonly known the Bach system, which we gratefully ellaborate a bit further here.

The discovery of Bach Flower Remedies

Dr. Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician, and pathologist and the man who discovered the 38 flower essences in the 1930s, believed at the existence of the soul and that the real cause of disease and unhappiness were emotional and mental problems. He trained as a medical doctor but later worked in homoeopathy and in 1928 set out to find new remedies. His idea was to identify plants that might alleviate the emotional and mental problems, which he saw as the real cause of disease and began using the essence of flowers (a process that places a flower or plant in water over a period of time in order to imbue the water with the flower or plant's unique healing "imprint") to treat his patients' various ailments. ​

The underlying premise of Dr Bach's system of healing is that disease originates in the delicate sensitive mind and emotions before it is manifested in the body and we must focus on the healing of thoughts and feelings in order to effect healing at the physical level.
