Flower essences work quite simply because their energetic patterns are naturally perfect. Unlike conventional medicine, if you take the wrong essence, it does nothing for you and causes no harm. When you take the correct essence, it will resonate with you, and effect healing or bring about change. Made by bathing flowers in spring water in the light of the sun or moon, essences work by raising our vibrational energy to the perfect pitch of a flower. "The Flower Healer", the first book by healer and flower-essence pioneer Barbara Olive, profiles more than 150 readily available flower and tree essences and explains how using them is so simple - a few drops under the tongue or in the bath, or misting your personal space, is all you need do to begin your journey to better health. "The A to Z Symptom Finder", based on Barbara's extensive practical experience, features a host of flower essences for both physical and emotional healing. The flower essences and ailments profiles are compiled on the basis of demand - Barbara advises hundreds of clients every year, so her profiles reflect up-to-the minute need.
