Flower remedies are suitable for people of either sex, as well as animals and plants, but this book looks at this system of healing from the female perspective. In a celebration of womanhood, the author explains how these gentle essences can help a woman through all her rites of passage: the onset of menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, the menopause and facing up to death. Flower therapy is not an alternative to other forms of treatment rather a complementary approach which addresses the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of our being. This book relates the development of flower therapy and explains how the essences work and how to apply them. The remedies of Dr Edward Bach are covered in detail and the Californian essences and Australian Bush essences are introduced. Other supportive measures are also included. With these gentle remedies, we may work towards bringing about our own healing and fulfilment.
