The History of Flower Essences
Developed by Dr. Edward Bach – a British medical doctor, bacteriologist, and homepath in the early 20th century – flower essences were created as an alternative form to traditional medicine. Bach believed that “each flower harbored its own distinct energetic vibration” and then” imprinted this energy into the water”. Modern day practitioners still utilize Bach’s traditional methods (known as the grandfather of flower essences) with the belief that microdosing flower essences can uplift the vibrational energy of the human nervous system. These remedies are believed to gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred, and indecision, which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole.
Unlike aromatherapy, flower essences do not have a scent. Essential oils can be added to them to heighten one’s senses. Coupled with the belief in our body's innate ability to heal and transform itself, flower essences can have a profound effect on our overall wellness and our ability to evolve.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are flower elixirs?

Scientific studies confirm that everything is composed of energy, and the energetic aura within these botanicals have the ability to resonate with your own energetic field, resulting in a shift in your state of mind. Flower remedies, also known as flower essences, were discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s and are distinct from aromatherapy and essential oils as they lack a scent. In addition to the traditional elixirs, we also offer mists and serums infused with flower essences and essential oils, which impart a pleasant fragrance.
How do I use flower essence botanicals and how often?
You have the freedom to choose between our elixirs, mists or serums that suit you best. By consistently incorporating Flower Essences into your routine for 3-5 days per week, you will observe noticeable transformations in your body, such as the elimination of internal static and a return to a serene and harmonious state. You can use it up to five times a day. Using the elixir, mist and serum together from the same collection can yield great results. We do not advise using different elixirs at the same time. The potency of the flower remedies is strengthened through consistent use, rather than increasing the number of drops taken at once.
What should I expect when using flower essence botanicals?
Initially, you'll observe a reduction in irritation and more seamless encounters. The weight of everyday stress starts to dissipate, leading to more peaceful sleeping patterns, and strong emotions become less intense and more manageable. Gradually, your inner world undergoes a transformation, which in turn affects your external surroundings. You might discover the courage to leave behind unsatisfying relationships and establish new ones that bring joy, pursue alternative career paths, or overcome fears that had previously held you back.
You can expect to gain a multitude of benefits from experiencing flower essences that include gaining a deeper understanding of yourself, appearing more youthful and vibrant, attracting better opportunities and individuals, facilitating personal development, breaking free from old habits, and a plethora of other transformative experiences that are tailored to your individual needs.

The descriptions are merely a framework based on decades of flower essence research.
What is the difference between your elixirs, mists, and serums?
The product you choose for application is the only difference that sets them apart. All flower essences possess the same level of power and potency. Although some individuals believe that consuming an elixir yields quicker results compared to using a mist or serum. The most suitable choice for you depends on the method that aligns with your daily life the most. This preference varies for each person.
- Flower Elixirs can be ingested internally by placing four drops under the tongue, four times per day. Or you can add 4 drops to your beverage of choice.
- Our Mists are a delicate blend of flower essences and essential oils infused in pure mountain spring water. Simply mist around your face and shoulders four times daily. You can also use them to spray in your room.
- Our Serums, which are also a combination of flower essences and essential oils, are infused with organic rosehip oil. Incorporate this serum into your daily routine up to four times a day, and you have the option of pairing this with the Flower Elixir or Aura Mist.
Can I take more than one elixir at once?
Taking multiple flower remedy elixir formulas at the same time is not recommended, as it can diminish their effectiveness. Each formula is designed to send a clear message to your vital force to initiate the healing process for a specific emotion. Introducing another formula can cause confusion, and the message becomes unclear, resulting in minimal impact. It is important to focus on your current feelings and choose a remedy accordingly, as we can only address a limited number of issues at a time.
How many weeks will one bottle of elixir last me?
One bottle of elixir can last up to one month if used as instructed above—four drops, four times a day.
How long should I stay on the same formula?
It is recommended to use the same formula consistently for a period of 30–90 days, which is equal to 1-3 bottles within this timeframe. The duration of the treatment depends on the length of time you have been experiencing the issue. In the case of long-standing obstacles, such as chronic trauma, panic, grief, or persistent emotions, we advise a plan lasting 60–90 days that will last up to 2-3 bottles consecutively.
How long will the remedy take to work?
In some cases, the remedies may provide immediate relief, but for long-term challenges, it may take three weeks to a month for a noticeable difference. Flower remedies have a gentle and gradual impact on the body. To experience the potent benefits, it is important to follow the recommended dosage.
How do combination botanical blends work?
Our elixirs, serums and mists are a combination of different flower essences that are selected from Amanda’s 26 flower essence collection. They have the ability to approach a challenge from various angles, harnessing their collective power to bring about a profound shift in your mental and emotional energy.
Each flower has its own unique properties and when they are combined together it allows for a variety of patterns to be worked on simultaneously. Over time, the effects of this process can be truly remarkable with noticeable effects that usually don't require an extended healing period.
I am feeling the opposite of what I am supposed to feel. Is this common?
When taking flower elixir, it's possible that deep-rooted emotions may surface, which may not align with the lightness you expect to feel. However, this is an opportunity to become self-aware of what has been hindering our growth and venture into transformation. By observing these emotions, we gain insight into our self-limiting patterns and create distance between the old and the new. Remember, the old belief system does not define you, and by surrendering and showing self-care, you can navigate this process with more ease as stagnant emotions dissipate. The journey is unique to each individual.
Are all of your products vegan?
Our company places a high priority on ethical practices and sustainability. While our serums and mists are vegan, our flower elixir is made with ethically sourced honey, ensuring no insects are harmed in the process. We are committed to providing cruelty-free choices for our customers.
What is the shelf life of your products?
To ensure the longevity of your bottled remedies, store them in a cool area and out of direct sunlight for up to 2 years. Our cobalt blue bottles help to protect our formulations from UV light.
What if I am allergic to flowers and other plants?
By undergoing several dilutions, flower elixirs become safe for individuals with severe allergies. The final dilution contains only the energetic essence of the flower, devoid of any plant parts.
Are flower remedies with alcohol safe to use during pregnancy and nursing?
During pregnancy, flower remedies can be used safely and gently to provide support for both mother and baby, promoting happiness and calmness. The alcohol content in these remedies is minimal, with only a few drops of each flower essence being used, so there is no need to worry about any potential risks. It is not uncommon for pregnant women to use alcohol-based flower elixirs, so rest assured that these remedies are a safe and effective option for you.
Are flower remedies addictive and do they have any side effects?
Flower remedies pose no risk of addiction or adverse reactions, rendering them entirely safe. Their mild nature makes them ideal for use on children and pets, as they can be added to a baby's bottle or a pet's water dish without any concerns.
Will flower remedies interfere with my medication, or will my medication interfere with the effects of the remedies?
Flower remedies work harmoniously with medications and other healing methods, ensuring that they do not interfere with each other's effectiveness. It is important to note that the action of flower remedies will not be hindered by any medications you may be taking. However, it is crucial to understand that flower remedies are not intended to replace medications. If you have any concerns or queries about this, it is always advisable to consult your physician for professional guidance and clarification. Your physician will be able to provide you with the necessary information and address any questions you may have, ensuring your well-being and peace of mind.
Can children or adults that are sensitive to alcohol use these formulas?
The quantity of alcohol you will consume is extremely minimal, as it has been diluted with refreshing spring water. This careful dilution process guarantees the safety of the alcohol-based products, ensuring that you can use them without any concerns about their effects on your well-being.
If you cannot consume alcohol, you have the option to make the remedy less potent by combining four drops from the dropper bottle with a glass of spring water. It is important to note that each sip is considered a dose. Another option is to add 16 drops to your daily water bottle and consume it gradually throughout the day.
Will alcohol, CBD or coffee interfere with the flower remedies?
The effectiveness of flower remedies will not be impacted by any external factors.
How do I know when to change the formula?
If you begin to observe a shift in your emotional state after one month of finishing the bottle, it's a sign that you have healed a layer of your symptoms and that a more profound state of being is emerging. Take this opportunity to review your emotional state, adjusting your remedies accordingly.
Another indication that you have successfully healed a particular symptom (without using up the entire bottle) is when you notice you are starting to forget to take your daily dose, or realize that the bottle has gone completely missing. This occurrence suggests that you may no longer require the remedy's support to address the specific conditions you were targeting. Acknowledge and celebrate the progress you have made in your healing process.
How should I care for my bottles?
Store unused bottles in an upright position and away from direct sunlight, heat sources, cell phones, and computers to ensure their proper preservation. For hygienic reasons, refrain from touching the glass dropper to your mouth when taking your daily drops. If this accidentally occurs, rinse it thoroughly with clean, hot water to maintain its sanitary condition.
