Flower Essences

D-Vine Essences

These are Herbal / Flower Essences that I have created from my herb garden. They work the same way that Bach or other flower essences work. They are available in 25 ml ready to use remedy bottles. Cost $15 bottle or 2 Bottles for $28. Information for the properties of the essences is from my own intuitive connection with the plant spirits and from the Book "The Healing Spirit of Plants" by Clare G Harvey and Amanda Cochrane. Flower remedies are not new, there has been an ancient tradition of flower essences being used throughout the world by the Australian Aboriginals, the Egyptians, in India, Asia, South America and Europe. Hildegard von Bingen (12th century) and Paracelsus (15th century) both wrote about the use of flowering plants to treat health imbalances.
