There are some questions about Australian Bush Flower Essences that used to come up every time I ran one of my Introductory Courses or during my time previously as an International Correspondence Tutor for the official Australian Bush Flower Essences Correspondence Course, so I thought it was definitely time to collate them into a permanent reference resource: whether you are new to the flower essences or even just as a reminder for anyone who already uses them.
(If you would like to have a question added to this, please post your comment below as I will be editing this post constantly).
Q. How do flower essences work?
A. This isn’t a question that can usually be answered in one line, but effectively they ‘train’ your energy field, and help you release repressed negative emotions, which in turn allows your body to naturally heal itself.
Note: if you would like to explore this question further, although I am not at present I do offer personal one-on-one
Q. Do flower essences produce any side effects?
A. No – because they are an energetic remedy, they do not have a physical effect on the body.
Q. If I have allergies or hayfever, can I still take flower essences?
A. Typically yes – because all flowers are removed from the water during the process, no physical allergens have been analysed as existing in the resulting dose Essences.
Q. Will flower essences interfere with my medications or specific dietary requirements?
A. No – because they are an energetic remedy, they do not have a physical effect on the body, medications or other therapies.
Q. Can flower essences be taken by new-born babies, the elderly and even my pets or livestock?
A. Yes, as they are an energetic medicine, anyone (of any species!) can use them, at any life stage.
Q. How do I use Australian Bush Flower Essences?
A. They are typically taken orally as 7 drops under your tongue, first thing in the morning, and just before you go to bed. Other ways they can be used are in creams, mists or added to your bath.
Q. Can I substitute something else for the brandy added to a dose bottle of flower essences?
A. While brandy is the best choice for preserving Essences, if you are not able to use it, or are administering Essences for someone who cannot drink alcohol, then you are able to make up the Essence using just purified spring water, and store it in the fridge at all times (Essences made with no preservative will normally need to be used within 2 weeks – compare this with dose bottles lasting 2 years if made using brandy as a preservative).
