They say there is a natural cure that exists on Planet Earth for every illness or ailment which I believe is true; the trick is finding it (and hoping the big pharmas haven’t got their hands on it yet & converted it into some money-making drug). I also believe that we can look to nature for the majority of solutions to our various problems; emotional, mental or physical.
Recently I discovered Australian Bush Flower Essences (ABFE) which have been a really useful tool in helping me manage my health. The idea behind the essences being that you treat the feeling or emotion that bubbles up so illness doesn’t have a chance to manifest in the body.
What are Australian Bush Flower Essences?
Flower essences are herbal infusions made from the flowering part of the plant, which address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930’s, although new remedies from other plant species are now available.
How do they work?
There are many flower essences in order to treat many different emotional challenges. The first step is to decide which mental and emotional issues are most important for your health and wellbeing.
Based on your choice, you then select the essence or essences which correspond with these issues; it is said that it’s important that the essence matches the true core need, not just a surface problem.
Flower essences are being used around the world by people who are learning how to treat their own conditions naturally. Holistic practitioners also often use these essences to induce clarity, communication, connection, peace and joy amongst their clients.
I have been using chemical-free skincare for over 3 years now and without a doubt, I enjoy using ABFE as much if not more than my other products, just for the pure feeling of slathering love-induced products on my skin. I tend to switch it up most days and spoil myself with various essences from the Morning Citrus Dynamis fash wash serum to the Essence Moisturiser Body Love System to the Divine Citrus Body Lotion Love System.
I particularly like the ‘skin & space mists’ as they’re easy to use and you can pretty much take them anywhere with you. So for example, if you’re suffering with a bit of anxiety or any panicked feeling, I would reach for the the calm & clear space mist. The essences come with a very clear and concise description of what should be taken when and which essence matches which emotion. (While I use the guide to work out what to use, I also like to just tune into my intuition to see what comes up there.)
The business, founded, and run, by Ian White BSc, ND, BM, a fifth generation Australian herbalist, is based in New South Wales, Australia.
Australia is home to the world’s oldest and widest range of healing flowers which, along with its relatively low pollution levels, makes it a rich source of natural healing products.
Ian grew up in the Australian bush where, as a young boy, his grandmother, like her mother before, used Australian plants and often would take him bush walking. From his grandmother, Ian learned much about the many healing plants and flowers, developing a profound respect for nature. From here, Ian went on to become a practitioner and a researcher of the rare remedial qualities of Australian native plants.
