The ‘New Normal’ and Flower Remedies


12 August 2020

It has certainly been a challenging six months and as things return to the ‘new normal’ our emotions can be put through their paces, so we’re exploring flower remedies to help.  We love to rely on our Epsom salts to rejuvenate, revitalise and restore our wellbeing and sense of self.  But as we all struggle in different ways to remain grounded, stress free and resilient, we thought we’d explore flower remedies in today’s blog. Not just because we’re big fans but because they’re a wonderful addition to an Epsom salt bath.

What are flower remedies?

Flower remedies, sometimes known as flower essences, are extracts from flowers and plants which work with our body’s energy (or vibe) and emotions.

They are produced by infusing alcohol or water with flowers and plants to extract the energy and healing vibes from these natural sources.

What can flower remedies be used for?

Flower remedies can be used for a variety of feelings, emotions, moods and difficult moments in life. Flower remedies are chosen specifically for the emotion you’re wanting to ease, this could be:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Panic attacks
  • Fear
  • Loneliness
  • Low mood
  • Sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Grief
  • Menopause
  • Stage fright and anxiety of public speaking
  • Adolescent moods and hormones
  • And much much more…
