A comprehensive guide to using over forty medicinal herbs as flower essences. David Dalton has been researching the characteristics of flowers and the healing powers of their essences for many years. In this book, each flower is delicately illustrated and its features described, before exploring the types of health conditions and human personalities for which its essence might be a suitable remedy. It includes well-tested preparation and dosage instructions. Supplemented with inspiring quotes and thoughts throughout the text, this book is a treasure-trove of natural healing. It will be a valuable guide for those new to flower essences and an essential reference for herbalists who want to deepen their knowledge.
