Visitors: 225

How much do we know about herbal essences? We tend to connect this name with famous series of cosmetic products of very high quality. The worldwide known brand produces various body and hair care products which are being sold throughout the globe and have an excellent demand for decades. However, herbal essences also mean natural products or extracts received usually from flowers or other parts of wild plants and herbs. In the majority of cases, the blossoms or flowers of the plants are used for producing herbal essences, therefore, it would be more correct to call these natural extracts “flower essences”. Many of us who have already tried using herbal or flower essences could definitely understand how much powerful and miraculous these gifts of nature are!

Not many of us know that the term “herbal essences” was introduced by a prominent British herbalist, naturalist and physician Edward Bach, who created his own system of flower essences along with his innovative approach to healing various diseases and ailments by using the power of medicinal herbs and plants. Bach spent many years studying conventional medicine, in particular the works of Hippocrates and Paracelsus, however, he was left dissatisfied with the medicine of his times. Therefore, he opened his mind to Mother Nature and began studying properties and actions of herbs. These efforts resulted in creating a new healing paradigm called Spiritual Quantum Physics, which included a system of 38 flower essences that Bach offered to use in order to heal millions of people around the world.

As a rule, the most herbal essences from the list of Bach’s essences are used for calming down the mind and relieving nervous tension, combating fears, anxiety, depressive thoughts, becoming more tolerant, optimistic and enthusiastic, as well as for boosting creative thinking and stimulating the abilities to get adapted to various difficulties, for increasing self-esteem and many other purposes. Therefore, these natural products are highly recommended to those who suffer from chronic stresses, pressure, high emotional overload, frequent nervous breakdowns, panic attacks and many other mental or psychological disorders. Herbal essences are highly recommended to everyone as their therapeutic actions are very gentle and using these natural products is not linked to any sort of complications, unwanted side effects, and so on.

The essences offered by Bach can help everyone achieve emotional and spiritual balance, and it is very important for becoming happier and healthier. In other words, herbal essences play a role of certain catalysts for boosting our health and improving our wellbeing. Certainly, despite of the fact that the technology used for preparing herbal essences is actually not difficult and many of us will be able to receive these essences ourselves, it is easier and more preferable to buy commercially produced herbal essences, for example, from the brand “Healing Herbs” created and promoted by Julian Barnard, one of the world’s leading experts in Bach’s Herbal Essences. Talk to your doctor or physician about therapeutic properties and healing powers of herbal essences and ask if he/she recommends you using these natural products which can give you a chance to feel the helping hand of Mother Nature.

Our psychological health and balance are not less important than physical health and fitness. That is why in our epoch of stresses, emotional overload and psychological exhaustion, such natural products as herbal essences , essential oils, herbal infusions and so on are very popular and commonly used.
