Flower Power: Flower Remedies for Healing Body and Soul through Herbalism, Homeopathy, Aromatherapy and Flower Essences is just as the title describes. Each of these healing methods use flowers to gently bring the body back into a state of balance. This 287-page reference book manages to weave together these largely separate disciplines into a comprehensive guide.
The ability of flowers to heal our minds and bodies is something largely developed in our modern era by Dr. Edward Bach, a British physician who spent long hours of research, studying the emotional effects of the plants he found growing in the English countryside. He devoted his life’s work to flowers, and their effects upon our psyche, after recovering from a case of “terminal” cancer.
He believed this happened because he spent what everyone believed would be his last months on earth productively, in hopes of leaving a legacy behind. This, in turn, distracted him from his grim diagnosis and gave him a renewed purpose. This also cemented his belief that negative emotions can lead to physical illness.Buy Now
