What are Flower Essences?

"Flowers are the life-force of a plant being the bearers of fruits which eventually transform into the seed bearing form from which to grow more plants. Flower Essences carry the vibrational essence or consciousness of a plant within a system of DNA similar to that of human beings. It is this aspect within the flower that connects with the consciousness and DNA of a person ingesting an essence. The vibrational essence of the flowers is collected during the preparation of an essence.

It is my understanding that most plants could possibly carry within them healing properties. We are already familiar with some natural healing products other than flower essences produced from plants and their flowers such as herbal tinctures, Aura-Soma, homeopathics and essential oils. Fruits, nuts and vegetables are also available for our health and well-being." Solara Zwaneveld

How do Flowers Essences work?

"As Flower Essences are ingested they are assimilated into the circulatory system and then into the nervous system where they connect with the life-force and consciousness of the subtle bodies, chakras and cellular structure of the physical body. In this way they influence mental and emotional states which in turn have an impact on the physical body allowing it to heal. Often there is also spiritual enhancement as a person connects more intimately with their inner self.

Flower Essences assist with the release of repressed memories held within the body from past experiences by allowing the letting go of set emotional patterns stored within a person’s DNA contained within the cellular structure of the human biology. " Solara Zwaneveld

About Solara Zwaneveld

"My spiritual journey began in 1988 by attending a Jungian dream interpreting group in NSW Australia where I lived.  It was during this time that my dreams showed my soul’s purpose to become a healer using an ancient form of healing, and also that I would be working and communicating with flowers. The outcome of these dreams was not apparent to me until later on in my life’s journey.

My healing education and teachings continued during my association with a Spiritual Centre and meditation group in Leura, in the City of the Blue Mountains, in NSW. Here I was blessed with the presence of several teachers and mentors, who had the ability to channel guidance from Spiritual Masters from the Brotherhoods of Light.

I was introduced to Flower Essences in 1992, and began learning about their healing abilities whilst working in a therapeutic healing centre for abused children in Katoomba. I have continued to learn about and collect essences from a wide variety of flowers, and these collectively have become the “Nature’s Flowers of Life ®” range of essences. Many of these essences were created on Aboriginal Sacred Sites in the Blue Mountains." Solara Zwaneveld

Australian Bush Flower Essences

by Ian White


"The Bush Essences are a system of healing that anyone can use for themselves or prescribe for others. Although Flower Remedies have been used by many cultures for thousands of years, the Australian Bush Flower Essences (ABFE) meet the great need for remedies that help people address the issues of the 21st century - sexuality, communication skills and spirituality to name but a few. The answer to this need (which has come from the Australian plants), has been developed and researched by Naturopath, Ian White, a fifth generation Australian herbalist." (ABFE website)

Following are two quotes from Ian White's Australian Bush Flower Essences book:

Page 5

"In June 1987 we received a newsletter from the World Network Centre for the Harmonic Convergence in Glastonbury, England. Its front page claimed what we already knew deep inside...that flower medicine would become the new and major form of healing after the Harmonic Convergence. This was yet another confirmation of the relevance of our work with the bush essences." Ian White

Page 7 

"...the three major forms of vibrational remedies - flower essences, homoeopathic and gem elixirs - flower essences are the best and most effective modality to reach and treat the subtle-energy bodies, along with the meridians and physical body....Gem elixirs act similarly to flower essences but not to the same degree, as they do not have the same potency of life force."  Ian White
