Flowers are used in many cultures as reverent offerings and in herbal medicine and vibrational medicine they are some of the greatest remedies available to us. In the Victorian language of flowers they were used as codes to express emotion - honeysuckle for devotion, azaleas for passion, tulips for the perfect lover - there are many more with the history of each connection stemming from different folk and cultural references, and of course direct experience. Most familiar to us perhaps is the remedial use of flowers in the essences that were popularly developed by physician Edward Bach. This was actually an ancient Egyptian technique and many people, and animals respond almost immediately to these emotional aids. In Mexico they use flowers on all the alters and in the healing work flowers are used over the body cleansing away negative thoughts, imprints and focus us on joy, and pure intentions instead. They are magic!

My own journey with using flowers has come from study and practise in Anthroposophical remedies and art therapy, Bach flower remedies and Mexican traditional medicine. in this course we will work profoundly with the Mexican flower limpia.
They can be joyful and to the point, they heal because they can transform you from one vibration to another. Come - be covered in them - it’s amazing!
