About Flower Essences

What Are Flower Essences?

Flower essences are specially prepared extracts of the flowering parts of certain plants. They work through energy fields to help restore balance and health to the being as a whole.

Dr. Edward Bach

Flower essences were first developed in the 1930's by Dr. Edward Bach, an English physician who gave up his busy practice to study and prepare what are today known as the original 38 flower essences which bear his name (The Bach Flower Remedies).


Since Dr. Bach’s time, many other essences have been created not only from flowers, but also from gems, minerals, animals, insects, lakes, sacred earth sites, and even stars and celestial phenomena.  These non-flower essences are often referred to as “energy” or “vibrational” essences.

Around The World

People who use holistic medicine today are creating essences in all parts of the globe, from Australia to India.  The essences we use in our Spirit Essences line come from five different continents and one Hawaiian island (Kauai).

Healing From Nature

Many essences have properties that may help support the body and spirit to heal by restoring balance and equilibrium as a whole.

Our solutions

Each of our Spirit Essences solutions is formulated as a combination of carefully selected individual essences.  These individual essences have been chosen specifically for their energetic properties which speak to situations involving emotional, physical, and behavioral problems in animals.

We are the world's first and only flower essence line formulated by a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine who has also trained in many holistic modalities (Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM), and an internationally recognized Animal Behaviorist (Jackson Galaxy, host of Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell).  Spirit Essences has been providing its unique line of holistic solutions for repeat customers around the world since 1995.
