Flower essences are liquid extracts, made from the flowering part of a tree, bush or plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The essence of each flower is captured by steeping it in water.
The original 38 flower essences were formulated in the 1930's by a British doctor named Edward Bach. The need for these essences arose as he discovered that some of his patients in a diseased-state (while receiving the same care and medication) would get better and others would not.
Looking for what was missing for this second type of patient, Dr. Bach came to the conclusion that there was an emotional component that was keeping them from fully healing. He determined that disease was the result of a conflict between a person's mind, body and soul.
Flower essences are completely non-toxic and have very little taste or smell. They work in a gentle manner to balance the emotional, behavioral and physical body.
In this class you will learn about each of the 38 Bach Flower Essences and how to use them with animals.
