Course at a glance
Flower remedies are specially prepared flower essences, containing the healing energy of plants. They are prescribed according to a patient’s emotional disposition, as ascertained by the therapist, doctor, or individuals themselves.
Flower remedies are more homeopathic than herbal in the way they work, addressing energy levels rather than chemical balances. The remedies work on the principle that they encapsulate the flowers’ healing energy, and are said to deal with and overcome negative emotions, and so relieve blockages in the flow of human energy that can cause illness or imbalance.
