The gardens at the headquarters of Flower Essence Services received official biodynamic certification in October, 1997. Biodynamic agriculture actually predates organic by several decades, and while it encompasses many of the principles of organic farming, such as eliminating all chemicals, biodynamic agriculture fosters the individuality of the entire garden and farm organism, so that each part creates a greater whole. Each farm or garden is in turn connected to the earth as a living being and to the cosmic rhythms of moon, sun, planets, and stars supporting the earth’s true identity.

What are flower essences?
Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions made from the flowering part of plants. They uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by British physician Edward Bach in the 1930s, though new remedies from other plant species are now available.

How do they work?
To understand how flower essences work requires recognizing that human beings are more than a physical body, also incorporating a body of life energy, a body of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or self. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants that interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, evoking specific qualities within us. They work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, carrying meaning through sound or light, while the flower essences work through the medium of water.

Modern physics has known for nearly a century that matter and consciousness are intertwined. However, medical science still generally works with a 19th century model of the human being as a mechanism in a world of machines. We expect that in the coming century medical science will develop ways of studying the impact of consciousness on health, and we will learn more about the ways in which flower essences work. Until then, empirical research consisting of a collection of case studies and practitioner reports will remain the primary source of knowledge about how flower essences work.
