Australian bush flower essences are flower essences made from flowers found in the Australian bush. Flower essences are an alternative healing method that uses water imprinted with the energy of different plants to treat emotional imbalances. Australian bush flower essences were developed by Ian White, a naturopath from Australia who distributes the essences through a company called Australian Bush Flower Essences.
The essences are made by collecting flowers from the plant and placing them in fresh water in a bowl in the sun. The sun acts to infuse the water with the vibrational healing properties of the specific plant. Once the sun has done its work, the water is mixed with alcohol or glycerin as a preservative. The resulting formula is a flower essence, also called a flower remedy.
Users of flower remedies claim they work on a vibrational level to gently and subtly treat a variety of emotional imbalances. Some examples of emotional states that are commonly treated with flower essences are guilt, fear, lack of enthusiasm, and feeling stuck or frustrated in career. The original flower essences were created by Dr. Edward Bach in England. Recently, this healing method has gained new recognition, leading to many unique flower essence lines from around the world, including the Australian bush.
