Flower remedies are becoming increasingly popular with people who recognize that their health is significantly affected by their state of mind. Flower remedies (also known as flower essences) are subtle elixirs that help to relieve feelings of stress. These gentle yet potent healers exert a positive influence on your state of mind. Each flower remedy has a particular influence on certain moods and emotions. Although the notion that flowers possess healing powers may seem New Age, it is in fact an ancient one. Thousands of years ago Australian Aborigines and American Indians used flowers to ease emotional upsets and achieve peace of mind.
