Flower therapy is a natural treatment method which is based on the use of wild flower essences to prevent and settle emotional problems, negative moods and psychosomatic disorders.
The origin of flower therapy can be traced back to thousands of years ago when man – who was in deep contact with nature – had an intuitive knowledge of the herbs, plants and flowers’ curative properties.
Flower remedies are able to positively affect a specific imbalanced mood and reactivate a state of general wellness. Physical disorders mainly originate from a condition of suffering and disharmony of the soul, which is in conflict with the laws of the Universe. Said disharmony causes, first, a subtle change in the energetic level of the body, then affects the psychological level and, subsequently, the organic level.
As a consequence, the change becomes chronic, discomfort becomes a physical symptom and disease starts to appear. Therefore, energetic rebalancing of the person is necessary through a specific vibrational frequency transmitted by the flower remedies, which are the highest expression of a plant’s vital force.
I began to make use of the Australian flower therapy remedies since the eighties. The remedies were discovered and classified by Ian White, an Australian naturopath and biologist. In the course of the last twenty years Ian White has developed 69 flower essences (Australian Bush Flowers) which were obtained from the flowers of his land (the Australian “bush”). They address the emotional and psychological issues that characterize modern times.
A short description of the 69 flowers’ properties s is provided in the following list:
