History of Flower Essences
"There is no true healing unless
there is a change in outlook, peace of mind, and inner
- Dr. Edward Bach, 1934
Flower remedies were first
developed by an English physician named Dr. Edward Bach
in the early 1930's. He developed a range of 38 flower
essences to address the various negative states of mind
and which he believed would be able to cure all
imbalances in the body.
Dr Bach's philosophy was to
address ill-health at the level of the emotional self or
the soul. Although this concept was completely different
to the conventional medical thinking of Dr. Bach's time,
modern research has shown that a person's emotions and
state of mind do indeed have a profound influence on
The philosophy behind the flower
essences is that optimum physical health can only be
achieved through emotional and spiritual harmony which
will free the body of blockages and allow it to heal
The Healing Effects of Flower Essences
The healing effects of flower
essences come from the vibrational energies of the
According to Dr Bach, all body
diseases are caused by imbalances or negativity in the
soul. The essences of flowers used in his remedies were
able to correct the problem at this level and, by
balancing the disharmonies in the emotional and
spiritual body, they would create healing in any body
area that was diseased or simply out of balance.
For example, Holly heals anger and
envy and therefore opens up the heart to allow the
individual to be truly loving.
NaturalEco has also combined gem
and crystal essences with the healing flower essences.
In this respect, we are one of very few companies who
use the healing vibrational energies of selected
crystals and gemstones together with the flower essences
in our remedies.
Gem essences are manufactured in a
similar way to flower essences, but harness the
vibrational energies unique to each different gemstone
How do Flower and Gem Essences work?
The effectiveness of flower and
gem essences is achieved by raising the vibrational
energies of the person who takes them.
According to quantum physics laws,
when two objects vibrating at different frequencies are
brought together, they impact on each other and an
interference pattern is set up out of which a new
frequency of vibration is produced.
Flower and gem essences hold the
higher frequency of the flowers and stones from which
they are made. This, in turn, works to lift the
frequency of the person who uses the essence.
Flower and gem essences are a
unique healing modality in their own right. They are
different from herbal and homeopathic remedies. Although
sometimes confused with aromatherapy oils, flower and
gem essences are not oils or herbal extracts and are
manufactured and work differently from even these
What makes our Essences different?
Flower Essences are produced by
many companies in the 21st century to varying degrees of
quality and effectiveness. However, due to the
constraints of mass production, very few follow the
original manufacturing guidelines as laid down by Dr
In line with our philosophy, our
NaturalEco Flower and Gem Essences are all produced with
scrupulous attention to detail and all production
processes are carefully selected in order to prevent any
degeneration of the remedies and to prevent any decrease
in the healing vibrational energy of the flowers and
gems from which they are made.
This has led to a conscious choice
to avoid mass production and the mechanized methods now
utilized by the majority of companies involved in
producing most Flower Essences currently on the market.
Our Essences Come from a Spiritual Place
NaturalEco Essences are completely
hand-produced on the southern tip of Africa at the foot
of Table Mountain, believed by many to be one of the
twelve chakras of the planet Earth and a place where the
energy leylines of Africa converge.
Table Mountain is found in an area
called the Cape Peninsula and is home to one of the six
Floral Kingdoms of the world. The Cape has an amazing
diversity of flora despite its small size and there are
currently more than 8600 species known to grow
Many flowers used in our Essences
are indigenous to the Cape area and are wild crafted or
grown organically in the beautiful and tranquil
Constantia hills away from noise, pollution and power
lines which can all adversely affect the flowers and
their healing properties.
Hand-picked and Bottled for the Best Quality
After being hand-picked, the
flowers are distilled in pure water out in natural, open
sunlight. A similar process is followed in the case of
the gem essences. The combined flower and gem essences
are then hand-bottled and hand-labeled.
Unlike many other commercially
available essences on the market today, there are no
production lines, electronic equipment or mechanical
machinery involved in the manufacture of our essences.
This is true to the manufacturing
process laid down by Dr Bach in order not to negatively
affect the vibrational healing energy of the flowers or
gems in any way.
As mechanized stages in production
can negatively affect the healing properties, we are
therefore passionate about producing and packaging the
essences entirely by hand in order to retain the full
vibrational energy of the flowers and gems used. Even
the labels are applied by hand!
The Purity of Our Essences
In addition, in line with our
philosophy and quest for purity, all NaturalEco essences
are produced using the original pure stock-strength
mother essences. Many manufacturers sell highly-diluted
essences that contain very little, if any, of the
original flowers' rejuvenating properties.
NaturalEco Essences are a
combination of several flower and gem essences
specifically chosen to address a specific need or
difficulty. This allows you to get the best of several
essences in one remedy - reducing hassle, difficulty in
choosing what is right for you as well as cost. Please

Are Flower and Gem Essences safe?

children and infants. You can therefore feel confident
in using NaturalEco as your trusted supplier of Flower
Essences for pregnancy and early motherhood.
How should Flower and Gem Essences be stored?
Due to the sensitive nature of the
vibrational energy of Flower and Gem Essences, they
should be stored out of direct sunlight and away from
water, dust or heat. It is also important to keep the
essences far from any source of magnetic fields
including electronic equipment (e.g. computers) and
