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 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 from www.ausflowers.com.au
Tammie Day from Vibrant Women has developed a series of combination essences taken from the 69 bushflowers available to support women to maintain and enhance their health and wellbeing. Each essence is accompanied by an affirmation, however you can also use your own more specific affirmation that resonates with your specific needs and desired outcomes.
Below is a description of the essence, the bushflowers used in each blend and the affirmation. Each formulation is made from biogenic essences of the stated flowers, purified water and colloidal silver as a natural preservative system. Each essences is taken as 7 drops under the tongue twice a day morning and night, whilst repeating your affirmation.
If you would like Tammie to make a special blend for you please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the issues you would like addressed and she can make a bespoke blend for you with up to three bush flower essences.
