As a medical intuitive healer with 29 years full time experience in natural healing, I have studied, mastered and recommend natural healing remedies of all kinds.
Food healing. Vitamins, minerals and supplements. Amino acids. Herbs. Alchemical remedies. Homeopathy and more.
Someone once asked me what I thought were the most powerful natural healing remedies and without hesitation I responded “Flower essences!”
What Are Flower Essences?
Flower essences are natural healing remedies made from flowers.
They have no adverse side effects and can be safely used by people of all ages.
If you happen to be taking any pharmaceutical medications recommended by your medical doctor, they will not interfere with your drugs.
Flower essences are vibrational remedies that address the emotional, mental and spiritual underpinnings of all disease.
How Flower Essences Work
It’s important to understand how we in natural healing view the development and resolution of all disease.
Illness begins in your energy field.
You are a soul having a human experience in your physical body.
Your soul controls your mind.
Your mind controls your emotions.
Your emotions controls your energetic system.
Your energy system controls your physical body.
When you experience physical illness, the imbalance in your health has been occurring for some time either at your soul level, in your thoughts and beliefs, in your emotions and/or at the energetic level.
When you want to heal your physical body, you have to move the energy of the imbalance out of your physical, out of your energetic system which includes your acupuncture system, breath and chakras, resolving the core emotional issues and changing your mind about the thoughts and beliefs that attracted the disease in the first place as well as possibly addressing the issue at the soul level.
Simply put, disease moves from outside your energy field through all the layers into your physical body.
When we heal, we release the imbalances out of the physical body, energy body, emotions, thoughts and beliefs and release from the depths of our soul.
Flower essences address imbalances in the emotions, mind level and soul.
Once you understand that disease begins in your soul, mind or emotions, you can grasp the fact that working at these levels is in fact the most powerful way to resolve what really ails you.
Your Issues Are Unique to You
Someone once asked me, “So what’s the best flower essence for PTSD? For Lymes disease? For chronic fatigue?”
The answer is there is no one flower essence that addresses one illness.
The emotions you feel, the thoughts and beliefs you hold and even your soul challenges are totally unique to you.
That is why when you are wanting to use flower essences for healing, you will need to work with someone capable of empowering you to understand the emotional, mental and spiritual causes of your disease.
This is the work that I do as a medical intuitive healer.
How to Use Flower Essences
When you use flower essences for healing, you have several choices:
One. You can take 2 to 4 drops of the essence under your tongue five times per day. There is an acupuncture point under your tongue that directs energy into your entire system.
Two. You can put 2 to 4 drops of the essence in your water bottle and drink it throughout the day.
Three. You can put 2 to 4 drops of the essence in your bath water.
Four. If you are treating animals or young children, you can put 2 to 4 drops in their food or water bowl.
Five. You can put 2 to 4 drops of the essence in an atomizer and spray your energy field and/or spray your home and living space.
Six. For individuals who are incredibly sensitive, you can also use a photograph of the flower or flowers that make up the remedy. I have photographs of many of the orchid remedies throughout my home and also use photographs of the orchid remedies in my healing work.
You can take up to six flower essences at once time.
A trained flower essence practitioner such as myself can tell you how long you need to take any flower essence to help you resolve the issues.
Once of the most important ways to use flower essences is with what is referred to as your constitutional remedy.
At your soul level, you came in to this lifetime to resolve certain issues.
These emotional, mental and spiritual issues may have been plaguing you your entire lifetime.
A constitutional remedy helps you resolve these core issues.
You take a constitutional remedy for at least six months, taking the drops at least five times a day in the various ways I have previously explained.
Current Emotional Challenges
You can also take flower essences to resolve current emotional challenges.
For example, you may have been experiencing temporary anxiety or depression in reaction to current life challenges.
Flower essences can be taken for as short of a period as one day, one week, one month or just a couple of months.
As your flower essence practitioner and the medical intuitive healer reading your issues, I will advise you how long you would need to take any one flower essence to resolve the issues.
Flower Essences Are Made and Used All Over the World
In my healing room, I have flower essences from quite literally all over the world made on every continent on the planet.
We have all experienced looking at a beautiful flower and feeling uplifted in their presence.
My healing room is full of orchids and people report they feel better just walking into the room!
Nevertheless, there are certain lines of flower essences I use most often:
Flower Essences Are the Ideal Remedy for Children and Pets
Often we want to help loved ones who are quite literally unable to speak with us.
Although most of my clients are humans, over the years I have done medical intuitive readings for all kinds of animals – dogs, cats, horses, even goats!
My youngest clients have been newborn babies. My oldest clients have been well into their 90s. I can remember helping a 90 year old be able to regain her ability to walk after a long period of immobilization – such rewarding work!
We may sense that something is amiss with our babies, young children and pets but not be able to communicate adequately about what is actually bothering them.
However, a highly trained flower essence practitioner such as myself can tune in to determine which remedies would provide emotional balance for our loved ones.
You can put the flower essences in the water bowl of your pet and in your baby’s bottle. It’s good to know they are safe and will provide the remedy at a subtle vibrational level.
What Is the Doctrine of Signatures?
In natural healing, the Doctrine of Signatures states that God has somehow marked plants to indicate how they should be used for healing.
Many herbalists and flower essence creators believe that each plant has a purpose for healing.
For example, walnuts look like the human brain and are known for containing nutrients helpful for our brain.
Willow bark is abundant in damp conditions and is known to treat aches.
The tall proud shrub used to make Five Corners Australian Bush Flower Essence gets its name from a fruit that has five corners. This flower essence distributes energy through the body and helps us to celebrate our own beauty
You may notice you are particularly attracted to specific kinds of flowers to uplift your own soul.
Ever since a friend gave me my first orchid, I have surrounded my healing room with orchids, which are known to be the most evolved flowers on the face of the earth. Many of my clients working over time evolve their own soul to become the highest best versions of themselves.
My Favorite Flower Essences
Throughout the years I have used more flower essences than I can even count.
These are the flower essences I find myself recommending most often for our current challenges and affirmations that I commonly use along with them.
The creators of each flower essence have a different description.
My comments here are based on my 29 years full time experience in natural healing using flower essences from all over the world.
I have provided for you affirmations you can use along with each flower essence.
This essence is helpful for those who are resolving PTSD, abuse, torture and the major horrors of human suffering.

Many people attempt physical detoxification programs without addressing the true cause of inner toxicity – bitterness, resentment and lack of forgiveness.

I will never forget my first detoxification program. I would wake up every morning and write in my journal how angry I felt!
Realize that as you physically detoxify your body this process may pull up old emotions that you need to release simultaneously for the detoxification to be fully complete. Take this essence while you are detoxing.

Although not commercially available, I share this flower essence with clients who come for in person healings.
What Does A Flower Essence Consultation Look Like?
During a flower essence consultation, a practitioner listens to your current challenges, tunes into you and makes specific recommendations about which remedies will bring you relief and advises you how long to take them.
I frequently recommend flower essences in my medical intuitive readings to alleviate the mental, emotional and spiritual underpinnings of my clients current challenges.
What is healing? Healing happens when you take the appropriate flower essences to release the vibrational patterns that have caused your disease.
