Flower Power 21st Century


Well the official meaning in the 70s was “a slogan used as a symbol of passive resistance and non-violence ideology”.

Meanwhile in Australia, a man by the name of Ian White created a flower power of his own which lives on to this day as powerful as when it began. Ian grew up in the Sydney region, where he spent a lot of his childhood on long walks through the bush with his grandmother, learning about the healing powers of plants. In the 70s, Ian was guided to begin the creation of a range of flower remedies and thus began his journey into the wonderful diversity of Australian Flowers, creating a range of Australian Bush Flower Essences. Today the essences and all other products that since joined the range offer us a wonderful selection of remedies, serving as the most beautiful companions on our emotional and also physical journeys.

The essences often find us when we are ready to make some changes in our lives but don’t really know, how to go about it. Once the intention has been set, new doors open. Or as the old saying goes:” When the student is ready, the teacher appears”.

What are flower essences you may ask. They fall under the category of vibrational medicines, which homeopathy is another type of. Everything in existence has a unique vibrational rate. If out of sync, we could compare it to the frequency of a radio station. If it is not tuned perfectly, there is a fuzzy noise and it’s just not right. Flower essences do the fine tuning of our frequencies. They are 100% safe and can be taken no matter what diet or medication we may be on.


Let me tell you a little about my own journey with them:


My personal journey with the essences began in 2004, when a dear friend and co health store owner suggested I tried an essence called “Abund”. As the name suggests, it is all about bringing Abundance of any type into one’s life. It also deals with cutting karmic debt and belief and helping us release old belief systems and habits. The most powerful effect of this essence for me at the time was my “hangup” about money. We so often have taken on beliefs from how and where we grew up and are not even aware of our behaviors. This essence helped me look at my patterns and actually release them. To this day, Abund essence remains my favourite.


Once we begin peeling away one layer of our behavior, another one shows up. And now that we are aware of our emotions and patterns, we realize what next we want to work through and improve on. The essences become a companion on our life’s journey and within the range of not only 17 combinations made from 69 single essences, we also find the most exquisite range of organic skin care called Love System. It is truly unique. Not only is it being handcrafted using 110 organic botanicals and indigenous Australian Plant Extracts, it contains the essences too, thus giving us a dose of flower essences with every application.





Since taking the first essence, my journey has brought me to becoming not only a passionate practitioner, but also the national brand consultant to the health store trade. I consider myself so lucky having been able to train with Ian White himself both here in Ireland and at the home base in Sydney, Australia, where I was able to make an essence with the master.


I would like to encourage you, dear reader, to explore this beautiful range with the help of your health store assistants. Look for Ian’s Books, pick up some leaflets and test the beautiful organic Love System Skin Care range. I can assure you, your life will take all sorts of turns when you invite this range in. It won’t always be easy and pleasant, but it will guarantee your growth and the right path.
