Flower Essences used in Walk in Beauty Products



Flower essences are unique in their ability to address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects simultaneously. Though a gentle form of treatment, they offer complete healing.

Flower essences are usually made by a delicate process of attunement, in which sunlight creates a transference of the flower's vibration into water, resulting in a potent healing essence like a kind of liquid energy. Flower medicine has been known to man for many thousands of years for its calming effect on the mind and emotions.

When one is very sensitive and open to nature, it is clear that plants and their flowers each have their own character and qualities. When taken as an essence, these can resonate with, and awaken the same qualities within a person. Nature offers us complete healing, restoring balance and well-being, allowing us to awaken to the truth of our wholeness and interconnectedness with all of life.

Walk in Beauty Products incorporate the following brands of Flower Essences:
