History of Flower essences
The essences of flowers have been used for centuries by many ancient cultures to balance and heal emotions.
In the 1930’s Dr Edward Bach recognised the connection between his patients’ ill health and their emotions and attitudes. He realised that to benefit his patients, their mental and emotional situation had to be included in their treatment. He then went on to develop his system of flower essences for healing emotions. His 38 essences continue to be widely used today, and well known as the Bach, or English essences.
In the 1970s The Flower Essence Society (FES) in North America continued further with Dr Bach’s work. They began researching and carried out clinical trials on many new essences. Some more specifically relevant to the stress and challenges of today’s modern times.
These new essences extend the range of situations that can be addressed by Dr Bach’s original flower essences. The Flower Essence Society continues to provide a wealth of quality information and studies on flower essences. To see more of the wonderful work they do go to Flower Essence Society
