Flower Essences

For thousands of years the essences from flowers have been used by people from Egyptian, Mayan, Aborigine and African cultures.

My enthusiasm and interest for Flower Essences in particular enables me to offer several unique and beautiful systems from different countries of the world. These principles can address every known disease.

An understanding of the healing properties of plants is based on the 'Doctrine of Signatures' which means that the shape, growth, colour, scent or taste indicates its healing properties and reflects in specific organs of the human body. For example, the skullcap flower resembles the shape of the human skull and is used for headaches and insomnia.

The ancient knowledge of plants had been lost for centuries and was brought back into use by Dr Edward Bach (1886-1936). He studied British flowers and put together 38 remedies. Similarly, Arthur Bailey compiled a set of remedies using British plants which grow in The Yorkshire Dales.

Essences from the flowers and plants of the Australian Bush are based on the ancient wisdom of the Aborigine nation. There are now more than 72 essences in this system brought together by Australian Naturopath, Ian White.

  • I have been blessed to undertake training with Ian White, Naturopath and Founder of the Australian Bush Flower Essences who wandered the outback with his Grandmother from the age of six years, watching and learning from her wisdom.
  • I also trained with Steve Johnson who put together the Alaskan Flower/Gem/Environmental Remedies before his passing in March 2017.

These are just a few of the flower options available during your consultation.

Flower Essences can be used by all age groups from birth. Flower Essences are very gentle and can reach to levels of the human organism which are not reached by other methods. They work from the subtle energy body inwards, enabling the body to release and clear blockages to help an individual overcome the causes of dis-ease on every level.

Flower Essences Flowers may be used for such diverse problems as:
  • Autism / Dyslexia / Dyspraxia
  • Arthritis
  • IBS
  • Depression
  • ME
  • Eating Disorders
  • Menopause
  • Memory / Speech


A Flower Essence Consultation takes between 30-45 minutes, in person or by telephone. The remedies given are taken twice daily, usually in a small amount of water.
