There are interesting facts about Flower Remedies, in a site which I encountered. Let me share with the flower community.
Flower remedies are made by floating the freshly picked blooms in bowls of spring water and leaving them in sunlight on a cloudless day. In this way, the water is "potentized" by the essence of the nower, which is believed to have entered the liquid. The potentized water is then mixed in fixed proportions with brandy, which acts as a preservative, and stored in a dark glass bottle.
Although there are now many varieties of flower remedies made around the world, most are prepared in this way. Unlike many modern herbal medicines, flower essences do not contain any artificial chemical substances, except for the brandy preservative.
The remedies are normally taken by dropping a few drops of the essence into a small amount of still mineral water. This mixture is then slowly sipped.
Though plant-based, flower remedies are more homeopathic than herbal in the way they are said to work. That is, they work psychologically and psychically at the energy level, rather than chemically. Supporters describe them as "liquid energy" because they believe they encapsulate the flowers' healing energies and present them in a form that can be used therapeutically in the simplest and most effective way.Read More
