  • Ask FES-Storage of Flower Essences
    essences can also be beneficially combined with essential oils However the flower essences then become united with these other substances and no longer have distinct vibrational patterns However keep in mind that flower essences can certainly be combined with essential oils for specific formulations but such a formula then has unique properties of its own rather than the distinct vibrational pattern of one particular flower essence When ingesting flower essences do not touch the dropper to your mouth and do not place the dropper on an unclean surface If in doubt rinse the dropper in water before replacing it on the bottle When dispensing from stock bottles of essences have all the components for your formulation well organized before you open the bottle so that that actual time you have the stock bottle open is kept to a minimum If your long term storage area for the essences tends to be on the warm side 70 degrees or more for prolonged periods of time it is advisable to store your flower essences upright In warmer conditions the alcohol may interact with the rubber dropper creating a rubber taste in the stock bottle of the flower essence If stock essences are left open for a considerable length of time or if the cap is not screwed shut properly the alcohol which acts as a preservative may evaporate In this condition flower essences can deteriorate due to microbial contamination This will be clearly noted in the product it will smell stale and there may be visible contamination In adherence with legal regulations FES is mandated to stamp a lot number and best by date on each stock bottle of flower essences These regulations do not allow more than 10 years from the date of manufacture for such product However if the flower

  • Flower Essences Aid in the Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina
    woman who was caring for her elderly father It had been necessary to move him to several care facilities en route to another state In the midst of her serious everyday responsibilities she began reexamining her own personal values and expressed herself by saying How will I find the strength within myself to do what I feel called to do in light of the tragedy Erin gave her a combination of Penstemon Bleeding Heart Arnica California Valerian Explorer s Gentian and Angelica which proved to be helpful In another instance a woman with a long standing issue of depression experienced the hurricane and geographic and cultural displacement while adjusting to being a new mother She was not able to focus on where to relocate and move from her transitional home because she was too scattered heartbroken and kept longing for the past Scleranthus was an important essence for her in combination with Honeysuckle Bleeding Heart Blackberry and Indian Pink Olive was important for an elderly man whose house was to be torn down yet he had an almost compulsive need to clean and go through every inch of it and inhabit it His home and roots were a tremendous part of his culture and he also experienced anxiety as he saw that he would not be able to leave anything to his children a value in which he was strongly invested The windows of his house were boarded up as many are and the air was stifling inside There was mold stench and it was a grim situation As a result he was exhausted In addition to Olive for his anger helplessness and control issues Erin suggested California Valerian Walnut Borage and Penstemon Later she also included Sweet Chestnut Dealing with the effects on the body as a result of clean up efforts Erin conveyed a conversation that she had with Anna Maria fairly shortly after the hurricane She told me that people were beginning to return to New Orleans to have a look at their homes From the stories she told me I thought that the Yarrow Environmental Solution YES would be most useful sooner rather than later The toxins were everywhere and despite taking physical precautions people were already seeing effects such as headaches congestion and generally feeling sick I had thought it would be several months before anyone she knew would be going into the city but I was wrong After the Yarrow Environmental Solution was disseminated and used over some months time Erin reports Without a doubt the most appreciated and well used essence was the YES formula Every bit of what you sent has been used or is still being used These are the kinds of comments I have heard about YES From a woman whose home was destroyed by the hurricane flooding and whose family was trying to salvage what they could from the rotting mess I try never to go to the house without the YES drops A couple of times I have

  • The Role of Flower Essences in Rebuilding a Healthy Community
    primarily go to the clinic for western medical services but in addition to doctors and nurses there are acupuncturists massage therapists and herbalists Herbalism in particular was and is useful because it is possible to practice with more limited resources and is a modality that feels familiar to some people because of their family backgrounds Also at the beginning there was limited or no access to other medicines Volunteer herbalists brought their own pharmacies including flower essences for use in the clinic Please read more about the history of the clinic here The CGHC volunteer program Recognizing that it is currently unable to exclusively utilize volunteers from the community CGHC continues to accept volunteers from elsewhere More can be learned about the program on their website Karyn Schwartz first volunteered at the clinic in February bringing all her flower essences with her thinking that there would be a change in energy and probably fewer volunteers would be there She returned again in April and stayed for another month Karyn feels her time at the clinic was the most amazing experience of complimentary medical practice Doctors consulted with her when they didn t have anything for a particular condition and asked if she could provide something for the patients Also if the doctors preferred not to have to prescribe a medication for one reason or another they would ask if there was something herbal that could be used instead During the first couple of weeks Karyn gave flower essences to every person she spoke with The volunteers too were under a lot of stress and she offered treatment to any who expressed interest in assistance with flower essences The nurses especially were open to using them The language of plants Karyn felt that in the cultural context of the clinic herbal medicine was easy to introduce including the use of flower essences She feels the language of plants is an effective way of communicating it is a great modality to help people name what is going on without the practitioner intruding on patients limits and privacy It allows the practitioner to be respectful while at the same time addressing what is occurring on a deep level Whatever language a patient spoke Karyn could find a way to relate it to plants and then could match what was needed to the situation In addition many people brought their spirituality into the consultation room to express their feelings some told stories from the bible or spoke of their religious upbringing or even voiced prayers Karyn felt this was a way for them to be able to communicate with her less directly which made it easier for them In turn she was able to respond saying such things as If I knew what you were praying for I could give you a flower to help amplify those prayers If she had a sense of what a person was experiencing or needed but did not want to ask intrusively she would say This is a

  • Resolving Childhood Asthma
    Star of Bethlehem fit the bill when Emma needed comfort and a feeling of everything is alright Chestnut Bud I chose this remedy in Emma s panic formula because it seemed a good fit to assist in breaking the cycle of Emma s reaction to certain events that caused her to become anxious and therefore reach for asthma medication Flower essences administered via a nebulizer help release the addiction to medication The next great breakthrough we had with Emma s asthma treatment with the flower remedies was to replace the saline solution in her nebulizer with flower essences Each time she needed an asthma treatment we would add her medication arbuterol and then add three to four droppers of the particular flower essence combination we were using at the time We have always worked very hard to limit Emma s use of allopathic medication This has been very challenging with something like asthma which is difficult to understand and can result in frustration for all the family members Here is a formula with which we had great success in treating Emma s asthma Yerba Santa this was chosen because asthma is an illness that affects the lungs a major place where one holds grief Yerba Santa fit the bill particularly well for its ability to release stored emotions in the heart and lung area Nicotiana this remedy was used because we found Emma to have developed an addiction to her asthma medication For her taking a pull on her inhaler was no different than someone needing to take a pull on his or her cigarette It was as though in times of emotional pain and need she would reach for her security blanket her inhaler Self Heal as it says in the Flower Essence Repertory it is a very beneficial remedy for those who face great healing challenges whether physical mental or spiritual As anyone knows who has dealt with a serious ailment as asthma is this is the remedy par excellence Saint John s Wort I chose this remedy for Emma because many of her most devastating asthma episodes took place during the night She would have trouble going to sleep and wake up several times with many disturbances It seemed she was having some disturbing dreams and I felt Saint John s Wort addressed this particular difficulty very well Evening Primrose Evening Primrose addresses pre natal issues and I chose this essence after doing some past life work with a practitioner It seems Emma had a difficult time in her past incarnation and I was hoping this remedy might address these issues in the present Golden Yarrow this remedy was chosen because I felt Emma needed the protection that Golden Yarrow could provide Helps a person build a sheath which shields and protects It seemed that Emma felt very unprotected and exposed in a psychic sense Buttercup Emma has always seemed to need some uplifting and Buttercup fit this need to a tee I loved the description that it provided an inner golden light Other important core remedies frequently used for facing life s challenges Gentian this was important to assist Emma in feeling that everything was all right and the world was not as scary a place as it seemed to be This helped to assuage the fear and doubt which plagued her Elm this remedy is one that Emma picked herself She chose this one when I would open my Bach case and she chose it over and over again Her message to me was that life was overwhelming Mimulus I chose a number of times in different formulas for Emma because I believe asthma contains a great element of fear both known and unknown fears I used Mimulus in conjunction with Larch in many formulas to assist Emma in feeling self confident and courageous in facing the challenges she came to this life to handle Vine I chose this because at times Emma can be overbearing in how she attempts to get her way I rarely will use Vine in a formula for Emma today but realize it was needed when she was 4 6 years old She overcame this tendency to push her will on others through taking this remedy in many formulas I made for her over the years Oak I added this because Emma seemed to take the path of most resistance in learning the lessons life gave her and I could see she wanted to be guided in a way that did not require so many struggles We both have used Oak in many formulas to learn to enjoy life with a lighter ease and step Core remedies repeatedly used in different formula combinations to assist the body YES this formula is used because Emma is prone to toxic overloads from the environment and from other different sources This remedy does well in assisting Emma in releasing harmlessly those things that impede her from having true health and well being Chaparral this remedy we used because it was beneficial in helping Emma to detoxify from the albuterol she was taking for her asthma I liked that this remedy also worked on cleansing the psyche during dreams Since Emma has so many sensitivities to life this seemed a good remedy to help balance her Garlic I felt this essence would help to strengthen Emma s immune system and at one time there was some concern that we were dealing with some parasitic invasions I felt this remedy addressed those issues Corn this remedy seemed to fit Emma to a tee She has a tendency to not be in her physical body and Corn was very grounding for her When we would do energy sessions with our energy practitioner she mentioned that Emma needed grounding and she spoke specifically of needing grounding in her feet Corn fit the picture at this time perfectly The birth formula for healing trauma Again as I mentioned Emma had a very long and invasive birth and I

  • Treating Thunder Phobia with Flower Essences
    but it involves blockage of dopamine nerve receptors in the brain It causes tranquilization The problem with Ace Promazine is that some animals seem to be able to be alert long enough to respond to perceived threats then slip back into a sedated state This is exactly what happened to Bear The Ace Promazine put Bear into a state of confusion He was still terrified and was still acting out when the storms approached Bear was so terrified and was so confused from being in a drugged state that one time he torn down the shower curtain and got tangled up in it which created more panic Another time Bear almost fell down a flight of stairs from being in a drugged state caused by Ace Promazine This medication did not completely sedate him but rather put him into a state where he could not function properly He was still very aware of his surroundings but could not respond appropriately He was unstable when he walked and that s why being around any stairs was such a dangerous thing Over the years Bear s veterinarian continued to recommend the use of Ace Promazine and recommended my parents increase the dosage Sadly Bear passed away before I became educated in flower essence remedies Had I been working with flower essences Bear could have avoided those unpleasant times and hopefully had been able to live through the storms in a much less agitated state Virgo My German shepherd Virgo is the reason I became educated in flower essence remedies When he was two years old he too developed an intense fear of thunder At that time I was studying with a holistic veterinarian who used flower essences extensively in her animal practice When I told her about Virgo s issues she immediately prepared a custom blend of flower essences for him I specifically remember the three essences that she put in his blend Aspen Mimulus and Rock Rose I didn t know anything about flower essences or how they worked but I was willing to try anything anything that would not tranquilize him and put him into a severe state of confusion like had happened to Bear Aspen above Mimulus top right Rock Rose bottom right Within two weeks of Virgo receiving the flower essences my husband and I saw some very significant changes in Virgo s behavior When there was a flash of lightning he didn t pace as much When thunder sounded Virgo got up but he didn t shake or try to glue himself to me like he had in the past The veterinarian advised that I keep Virgo on his blend for at least six months I followed her instructions exactly With each passing month that Virgo received his essences he reacted less and less to storms He also didn t react to fireworks or gun shots The entire time Virgo was receiving his blend he was a healthy fully functioning dog He was never in a sedated

  • Transformation from Traditional Veterinary Practice to Holistic Therapies
    symptoms are not the disease just the language of disease The body responds as a unit not in pieces Modern day medical practice has compartmentalized medicine But there are trillions of cells in the body and they all respond as a unit One injury affects every cell in the body So we cannot treat with just one modality If someone is simply treated with just drugs that suppress symptoms a stimulus may eventually come along and wake the sleeping giant Educating and working with clients People locate Dr Young through word of mouth the internet newspaper articles and such Most of them may not have knowledge of homeopathy or flower essences but they do know their animals need something different In many cases they feel desperate in regard to their animal s condition and know that they don t want drugs However Dr Young says It can be difficult dealing with someone who wants something and wants it now It is a slower process except for cases of acute injury First off with new patients Dr Young works to adjust their diet including the use of proper vitamins minerals and digestive support Every one of Dr Young s patients is given a flower essence of some kind depending on their needs and all of them have needs combined with nutrition and homeopathy it s a god send as far as being able to help the animals He feels that one must recognize the stress factor in disease cure if issues of stress are not addressed then one may not obtain the best possible results with the homeopathic remedies To introduce flower essences to someone who has no knowledge of them Dr Young will speak of the history of Dr Bach his background in homeopathy and the creation of the remedies He explains that they have an impact on the psyche He also tells them that one can t overdose on flowers which makes a big impression on his clients and it also mitigates safety issues and fears of side effects I educate all my patients all the time if I can t teach them what I m doing then I can t do well for them I want them to know what I m doing and why and that way I earn their cooperation Flower essences aid animals in relationship with their families Many animals become ill and remain so when living amidst the constant stress and negative energy of dysfunctional families Peoples anxiety and dysfunction spread out onto their pets the animals get it very clearly In all such instances involving emotional toxicity Dr Young gives Crab Apple to his patients and sees that it makes a tremendous difference for the animals If nothing else he recommends Five Flower Formula Rescue Remedy for animals in out of control dysfunctional families to help them deal with what goes on in their homes every day The Five Flower Formula flowers From left to right Rock Rose Clematis Star of Bethlehem Cherry

  • Flower Essences: Effective Remedies for Feral Cats
    such situations Following is Ruth s account of a recent rescue situation I was called by a friend who knew of my activities with rescuing cats when he discovered a barn full of neglected and feral cats We rescued about 18 from this colony some with traps and some were tame enough to handle All of them were sick badly nourished and terrified since they had been used by the local ranchers for target practice The most seriously ill was a female tortoise shell who had serious digestive difficulties and would scream in the litter box After employing diet changes and adding supplements to her food her condition progressed forcing me to take her to our local vet After the examination we discovered that not only did she have a terrible case of advanced parasites but that she was also in the final term of a pregnancy In this case I had no choice but to use alternative medicine to protect the unborn babies I started to use Magenta Healer and Five Flower Formula along with a raw food diet acidophilus yeast kelp antiparasitic herbs and bran I administered diluted Magenta Healer to her hourly She very gradually recovered her babies were born fat and healthy and larger than typical kittens Now that the babies have arrived I have been using Yarrow Environmental Solution for both the mom and babies spray and liquid along with Magenta Healer Mom and babies are doing marvelously The other feral cats that I rescued were impossible to handle as they were terrified and totally wild In order to treat them for upper respiratory disease I used Five Flower Formula to great success in addition to a combination of Yarrow Environmental Solution Magenta Healer Self Heal and Quaking Grass All of the ferals are now
