Natural remedies are for everybody!

A flower essence is basically an extract of a flower that is completely tasteless. It has the strength, aroma and the energy of the flower in it which is why it is made and used. These essence remedies are similar to homeopathic medicines that are diluted and then potentized to make them more effective than they naturally are. The usage of flower essence therapy as a natural remedy is not new. Infact it is an age old ancient practice going back several thousand years. It is said that flowers, preserved in honey have even been found in the tombs of ancient Egypt.

The usage of flower essence therapy as a natural rescue remedy was researched into and first developed by an English physician by the Name of Dr. Edward Bach. Dr Bach developed the flower essence therapies in a more usable way and after thorough research he launched the Bach Flower Remedies that are used till today. His whole plan was to find a form of treatment that worked on the mind and not just on the body.

Dr. Bach believed that the mind can get sick jus the same way as the body can and medicines for the body may not necessarily be good for the mind. He also wanted a more natural remedy to be used as rescue remedy as and when the mind was sick with problems like depression and anxiety because Dr. Back believed that the mind is a whole different entity. Infact he spent the last years of his life working on perfecting these simple natural remedies and they have been used ever since.

Most often these flower essences are extracted from the flower without harming the plant as a whole. These natural remedies are then prepared by using the flower extract mixed with special water in crystal bowls. Some people who prepare these natural rescue remedies also say special prayers for the flower to infuse all its energies into the natural remedy preparation. This perpetration is then allowed to come in contact with natural elements like air, fire (heat from the sun), water and earth. The preparer also prays for all the gods and angels to bless the preparation. The natural rescue remedy is then ready for distribution.

Natural rescue remedies in the form of flower essences can be taken individually or combined. Since these natural remedies are virtually tasteless they can be taken directly from the bottle with a few drops put under the tongue. Or else, these remedies can be taken in a diluted form as well. On the basis of recommendations from an experienced flower essence therapy practitioner, several different essences can be combined to create one essence that can be used as a remedy to the problem that the person has.

Be it a problem of the mind, body or soul, there is something in these natural remedies for everyone.
