What are flower essences?

Flower essences are a gentle but effective form of traditional herbal medicine that was pioneered by Dr Edward Bach in the 1920s and ‘30s. Rather than acting on the physical body, flower essences work at an emotional and energetic level to help bring about subtle but powerful shifts in your attitudes, thought patterns and energetic field.

Traditionally, flower essences have focused on assisting negative emotional states. In contrast, Tribe of the Tree flower essences are aspirational and forward looking, with an emphasis on where you want to go, not where you’ve been. They invite you to focus on the issues you’re facing in a new way, and to embrace life joyfully and energetically, confident in your ability to handle whatever comes your way. That's probably why our practitioners and customers often describe our essences using words like 'fresh' and 'lively'.

Each remedy is accompanied by a short story to meditate and reflect on that expands awareness and helps you connect with the remedy and its effects in your life. Feedback from our customers has been that the stories anchor the healing process and create a deep and emotional connection with the essences, allowing them to work at a profound level. We sometimes describe it as giving your mind something to think about while your energy is shifting and changing.

How can I learn to use Tribe of the Tree™ flower essences for myself, my family or my clients?

A Tribe of the Tree™ workshop is a really special experience, combining traditional teaching styles with transformative meditation sessions - and there's always lots of laughter too. Visit our Training page to learn about upcoming workshops and courses, and if there are none currently scheduled near you, please contact us to register your interest for the future.

Visit our stockist page to find the closest place to pick up your favourite flower essences and mists, or purchase them directly from the Tribe via this website.

Yes, and we're currently seeking new practitioner and retail stockists who are excited about supporting their clients' healing, development and happiness with our flower essences. If that sounds like you, head here to apply to become a Tribe of the Tree™ stockist.

Can I take more than one essence at a time?

Yes. Most people find that taking one, two or occasionally three essences at a time works well for them. If you're feeling drawn to more than that, take a moment to tune into which of them feels most important for you right now, and start there.

We’d be delighted! If you can’t decide which essence to take after reading about them in the Products section of our website, please contact us with a brief summary of what’s going on for you, and we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

Absolutely! We’d love to know how our products and their stories have made you feel, so please contact us about your experiences with our products, including as much detail as you’re comfortable with. We look forward to hearing from you.

Brandy has traditionally been used to preserve flower essences, and is used in the Tribe of the Tree range. Each standard seven-drop dose contains less than one drop of alcohol.

If you’re sensitive to alcohol or prefer not to drink it, here are three alternative ways to work with the essences:

  • Where appropriate, consider using one of our Flower Essence Mists instead of the drops
  • Apply the drops to the skin on your tummy, the inside of your wrists or the back of your neck - this method is particularly popular with kids and pets
  • Put the flower essence drops into a cup and then pour in a couple of inches of boiling water straight from the kettle, and let it cool before drinking it - most of the alcohol will evaporate off

Yes, when indicated. Please feel free to contact us with some details of your situation beforehand if you’re not sure and would like some guidance.  The alternative dosage methods discussed above may also be relevant in these circumstances.

Yes, you can take Tribe of the Tree essences with other complementary and/or pharmaceutical medicines. However, to optimise the insights gained, we recommend that when possible you avoid taking them in conjunction with other flower essences.

Everyone’s experience is different, with some people noticing shifts during their first dose of the essence, and others reporting a more gradual process – often two to three weeks.

If you’re looking at things from a new angle, handling situations differently, or experiencing a shift in your attitude or the way people respond to you, then it seems likely that you’re on the right track. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss your experiences in more detail.

Can I purchase stock remedies to dilute for my clients?

No. Our essences are only available as ready-to-take remedies, each of which is accompanied by a specially channelled story to help anchor the healing process and create a deep and emotional connection with the essences, allowing them to work at a profound level. These insights from the plant kingdom are unique to Tribe of the Tree™ and form an integral part of users’ experience taking the remedies. While we understand that many practitioners like to blend their own essence combinations, supplying each product individually packed and ready-to-take ensures that your clients will always receive the energetic effects of the medicine and its accompanying story simultaneously - without you needing to do any messy mixing or time-consuming dispensing.

Our manufacturing method shares some similarities with the method originally pioneered by Dr Bach, but is a unique energetic process that we’ve developed through our own research.
