Flowers of Costa Rica
The Bach Flower Remedies is probably the most famous system of flower essence therapy and was the only system of significance from the 1920s well into the 1970s. In 1979 Dr. Richard Katz, who was seeking new methods of dealing with modern stress and the resulting ailments, founded the Flower Essence Society in California, (FES) which pledged to further the research and development of Bach's principles. As of 2000, FES hosts a database of over 100 flower essences from more than 50 countries.

PSYCHOTHERAPY IN THE BOTTLE
- Luther Burbank
Flowers always make people better, happier,
and more helpful; they are sunshine,
food and medicine for the soul.
~ Luther Burbank
Flower essences are prepared from a sun infusion of either wildflowers or garden blossoms in a bowl of water, which is further diluted and potentized, and then preserved with brandy. Quality preparation requires careful attention to the purity of the environment, the vibrancy and potency of the blossoms, celestial and meteorological conditions.
Through sensitive study of the physical and energetic properties of the plant through its cycles of growth, purity and qualities of water, emotional and psychological state of preparer the essence is finally achieved.
Small is Beautiful
Working with flower essences requires a stretch in our thinking beyond the materialistic assumption that “more is better.” Flower essences, like other vibrational remedies, illustrate the principle that “small is beautiful”, embodying the specific energetic patterns of each flower in a single drop. They are part of an emerging field of non-invasive, life-enhancing subtle therapies, which promise to make a major contribution to health care in coming years.
How They Work
To understand how flower essences work requires a recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a "body" of life energy, a "body" of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or Self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, and evoke specific qualities within us.
Modern physics has known for nearly a century that matter and consciousness are intertwined. However, medical science still generally works with a nineteenth century model of the human being as a mechanism in a world of machines.
The Power of Flower
Flower essences are liquid extracts used to address profound issues of emotional well-being, soul development and mind-body health. They are part of a subtle energy medicine, which includes homeopathy, acupuncture, color therapy, therapeutic touch and similar modalities.
Similar to homeopathic remedies, flower essences are vibrational in nature and are a primary treatment for traditional Chinese medicine known as 'Shen' or 'Spirit'. Each flower has a specific frequency and holds information within that can help us realize our true nature and help us shift out of self-limiting, self-destructive patterns and behaviors, supporting our emotional attitudes and perceptions. They provide a language that help us understand our inner world and the ways we respond to life and life’s situations.
