Descriptions of Flower Essences

 Note:  Essences that are included in a Mist, Cream or Drops Combination Essence are noted with an asterisk *.


Alpine Mint Bush   

This Essence works on the mental and emotional levels. It is for people who work in healing, health administration and caring situations where there is a great deal of responsibility for other people. They give much of themselves both physically and emotionally, often listening to people in pain and need. These care givers can be in danger of burning out or becoming disillusioned. They can reach a point of tiredness feeling their life has lost its joy. Alpine Mint Bush can revitalize and bring about in these people a renewed enthusiasm and joy in their life for what they do.

+  Revitalization; joy; renewal
-  Mental & emotional exhaustion; lack of joy and weight of responsibility of care givers


Alpine Mint Bush

Angelsword * 

The Essence is for reaching one’s own spiritual truth by cutting through any confusion or misinformation, ie. helping one discern the level of truth in ‘channelled messages’. When the flower is looked at the opposite way, it resembles a monk in purple robes accentuated by the yellow stamens at the third eye. Taking this Essence allows access and retrieval of previously developed gifts from past lives. Angelsword protects from outside influences and entities so one can receive clear information from one’s Higher Self without interference. Whilst Fringed Violet works to repair damage to the aura, Angelsword releases any energies that entered while the aura was open. 

+  Spiritual discernment; accessing gifts from past lifetimes; releases negative psychic energy; clear spiritual communication
-  Interference with true spiritual connection to Higher Self; spiritually possessed




Autumn Leaves 

This essence allows one to hear, see and feel communica- tion from the other side and be open to that guidance and communication. It also further emphasises the sense of letting go and moving on in a very profound way. The leaves themselves were collected from a sacred area, in autumn, at the exact moment of their release from the trees. The Essence was made only from these leaves. 
The work of Dr Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and other workers with the dying, all note how common and important it is for the one passing over to be aware that help and guidance are around, especially the presence of loved ones who have already died. This Essence will ease the transition of the passing over from the physical plane to the spiritual world. Autumn Leaves is included in the Transition Essence Combination.

+  Letting go; in one's last days before passing over it increases awareness and communication with loved ones in the spiritual world
-  Difficulties in the transition of passing over from the physical plane to the spiritual world


Autumn Leaves




Banksia Robur *    

Banksia Robur is commonly known as Swamp Banksia as it is usually found by creek banks. This Essence addresses temporary loss of drive and enthusiasm due to burn out, disappointment or frustration. It is different to Old Man Banksia as it is for people who are normally very dynamic. It will pick them up out of the 'bog' they are in and get them back on solid ground and going again. When bathing add seven drops of this Essence to the bath which will enhance the effects of the remedy as it will assist in washing away negativity.

+   Enjoyment and interest in life
-   Loss of drive and enthusiasm


Banksia Robur

Bauhinia *   

Made up near Geikie Gorge in the Kimberleys, this Essence is for embracing new concepts and ideas. There may be some hesitation or reluctance, initially, in coming to terms with these. It can even help when there is a person who is annoying you or whom you dislike. For example, a family of a different nationality may become neighbours and even though you may not be racist, you may have difficulty in accepting their different manners and customs. This remedy is also good for older people who are very set in their ways.

+   Acceptance and open mindedness; embracing new concepts and ideas
-   Resistance to change; rigidity; annoyance



Billy Goat Plum *   

For feelings of shame, self disgust and self loathing. For those people who feel revolted and dirty about sex and feel unclean afterwards. It can also be for feelings of revulsion about other physical aspects such as acne, eczema, a large nose, etc.

+   Sexual pleasure and enjoyment; acceptance of one’s physical body
-   Shame; sexual revulsion; dislike, even disgust of part of one’s body


Billy Goat Plum


Black-eyed Susan *   

For people who are impatient or always 'on the go'. These people are continually rushing and their lives are always overflowing with commitments. This Essence enables these people to slow down, to reach that still centre within and find calmness and inner guidance.

+   Slowing down; ability to turn inward and be still; inner peace
-   Rushing, always on the go; impatience; always striving


Black-eyed Susan


Bluebell *   

Made in the Olgas, one of the main spiritual centres in Australia, this Essence helps to open the heart. It is for those who feel cut off from their feelings. The emotion is there, but is held within. They are subconsciously afraid to express it for they fear their feelings of love, joy, etc. are finite or not renewable. They operate from a subconscious fear that there is just not enough and that if they let go of what they have, they will not survive. This fear can often be marked by a controlling, rigid and forthright manner.

+   Opens the heart; joy; sharing
-   Cut off from feelings; fear of “lack”; greed



Boab *  

The Boab Tree is found only in the Kimberley region of northwest Australia. This is one of the most powerful of all the Bush Essences and has brought about profound change. Boab clears negative emotional and mental family patterns that are passed on from generation to generation. Boab can access and clear those core patterns and all the related ensuing beliefs. This Essence is very beneficial in helping those who have had experiences of abuse or prejudice from others. Boab will also help clear the negative lines of karma between people. When used in a spray it can be very effective in clearing negative energies, especially when combined with Fringed Violet, Angelsword and Lichen. Boab can help break the chains that have been around human consciousness for thousands of years.

+   Personal freedom by releasing family patterns; clearing of other non-family negative karmic connections
-   Enmeshment in negative family patterns; for recipients of abuse and prejudice



Boronia *   

This is the Essence for resolving obsessions - thoughts, events, things or ideas which are stuck. It leads to clarity and focus. It combines wonderfully with Bottlebrush for breaking habits and addictions and for dealing with an ended relationship when there is pining for the other person. It also enhances focus for creative visualisation.

+   Serenity; clarity of mind and thought; creative visualization
-   Obsessive thoughts; infatuation; pining for recently ended relationships




Bottlebrush *  

This Essence helps people move through major life changes and the overwhelm that often goes with those changes, especially retirement, menopause, adolescence or death, etc. It 'brushes' out the past and allows the person to move on. An excellent remedy for pregnant women and new mothers who feel inadequate. It will help throughout pregnancy until after the birth and will assist with bonding between the mother and child. It is excellent for healing unresolved mother issues.

+   Letting go; serenity whilst adjusting to change; bonding between mother and child   
-   Hoarding and holding on emotionally; overwhelmed by life changes



Bush Fuchsia *   

This Essence assists with problem solving and improves one's access to intuition - it helps a person to trust their own 'gut' feelings. It allows for balance between the logical/rational and the intuitive/creative, i.e. the integration between the male and female aspects. It will give people courage and clarity in public speaking as well as the ability to speak out about their own convictions.

+   Allows one to integrate information; develops intuition; trusting and following one’s intuition
-   Inability to balance the logical and rational with the intuitive and creative; ignoring gut feelings


Bush Fuschsia

Bush Gardenia *   

For renewing passion and interest in relationships. It helps draw together those who are moving away from one another, busy in their own world (career, life, etc.). It is as if this Essence helps to turn the individual's head to reconnect to see what their partner is doing and feeling and to discover what is needed to bring them back together.

It is not only for male/female relationships but also for family relationships. This flower has similar flowers and scent to that of the suburban garden shrub but is a 40 ft. tree, growing in the tropical north, similar in shape to a Eucalypt.

+  Renews interest in others; improves communication; passion
-  Taking loved ones for granted; unaware of others


Bush Gardenia

Bush Iris *   

This was one of the first Essences to be prepared. It is an Essence to open people up to their spirituality and to access the doorway to their higher perceptions. It allows the trinity to flow into a person and is an excellent remedy to give someone who has just started meditation or 'conscious' spiritual growth. In the negative mode there will be materialism and/or atheism. There may also be a deep seated fear of death.

+   Spiritual insight; awareness and understanding beyond the material/physical plane
-   Fear of death; materialism; atheism


Bush Iris

Christmas Bell *    

Christmas Bell is an erect perennial herb which is frequently found in the Hawkesbury Sandstone country of NSW in the low open heaths or swamps.

It grows up to 60cm high with a crowd of yellow tipped, red fused, tubed flowers at the top. Christmas Bell’s flowering time is from late December — hence its name — up until February. Christmas is the time of year associated with the joy of giving and receiving, not only of love, but also from the realm of the material too. This remedy assists one with mastery of the physical plane and with stewardship of one’s possessions. It also helps one to manifest their desired outcomes and is extremely beneficial for anyone experiencing a sense of lack.

+  To help manifest one’s desired outcome
-   When experiencing a sense of lack


Christmas Bell

Crowea *   

For people who are feeling 'not quite right' with themselves and are just a little out of balance. An excellent Essence for people not sure of what it is they are feeling. It is great for worry and distress. It is for those who always have something to worry about without having specific fears. This purple flower has five petals with a prominent raised centre. Five in numerology relates to the emotional centre and the integration of emotions.

+   Balances and centers the individual; in touch with one’s feelings
-   Worrying; out of balance; feeling “not quite right”



Dagger Hakea *   

For people who feel resentment and bitterness and hold grudges against those with whom they have been very close e.g. family members and old lovers. This resentment is often not openly displayed. The plant gets its name from the needle-like barb that grows on its leaves.

+  Forgiveness, open expression of feelings
-  Resentment; bitterness towards close family, friend and lovers



Dagger Hakea


Dog Rose *  

The striking feature of Dog Rose is that the flowers hang down and appear to have dropped and rounded shoulders, like a defeated person. Dog Rose is the Essence for treating fears, niggling little fears, not terror. Overcoming fear allows an increase in the flow of the vital force, quality of life, courage and self esteem. It is also for shy, insecure, timid, nervous people.

+  Confidence; courage; belief in self; ability to embrace life more fully
-   Fearful; shy; insecure; apprehensive of others; niggling fears


Dog Rose

Dog Rose of the Wild Forces *  

Found only in Victoria, this Essence was made up from a plant quivering and leaning over the surging white water just below Mackenzie Falls, in Gariwerd, (previously known as The Grampians). This plant is commonly found growing close to the water and, like Dog Rose, it deals with fear. It is taken when a person has a fear of losing control, when the emotions they are feeling within themselves or immediately around them are just so intense there is a sense of losing total control. On a higher level it helps to teach the necessity of gaining control over the emotions so that emotional intensity will not distort one's natural energies.

+   Calm and centered during times of inner and outer turmoil, emotional balance
-   Fear of losing control, hysteria, pain with no apparent cause


Dog Rose of the Wild Forces



Five Corners *   

This tall, proud shrub gets its name from its fruit which has five corners. Five Corners corresponds with the anatomical position of arms and legs spread with the fifth point being the head. This Essence allows the life force to flow through to these five centres. When this happens a person feels good and strong in themselves. They feel their own love and beauty. The Essence resolves low self esteem, lack of confidence and diminished self love. In the negative mode the person will appear crushed and 'held in'.

+   Love and acceptance of self; celebration of own beauty; letting true self stand out

-   Lack of confidence; low self-esteem; dislike of self; held in personality; self-sabotage


Five Corners

Flannel Flower *

The petals of this flower resemble the sensuous texture of flannel - it almost begs to be touched and felt. This Essence is for people who are uncomfortable with emotional intimacy as well as physical contact and touching. They often have difficulty in maintaining their personal boundaries. It helps one to totally trust and express verbally their innermost feelings. It brings to both males and females a desire to and enjoyment in, expressing themselves physically. It is excellent for males allowing for a gentleness, softness and sensitivity in touching.

+   Gentleness; enjoyment of all physical expression and touch; trust to express and reveal self; sensuality; healthy boundaries
-   Dislike of being touched; difficulty verbalizing feelings; uncomfortable with physical and emotional intimacy


Flannel Flower

Freshwater Mangrove

This flowering tree grows beside fresh water creeks, billabongs and swamps in the Northern Territory. The healing quality of the Essence is to release and heal mental prejudice, allowing the heart to open without prejudgement. The prejudice of Slender Rice Flower stems from direct personal experience whereas Freshwater Mangrove is for those who mentally reject or have already made up their mind about something without it ever being experienced. Often the seeds of this prejudice have been sown for a long time. In many cases it is generational, as in the case of countries where religious prejudice is passed on and accepted by the young without question. Many prejudices are built because of cultural or societal belief that something cannot be done. This Essence has the potential to allow us to fully experience and be open on both a mental and heart level to new perceptual shifts and all the changes occurring at this time.

+  Openness to new experiences, people and perceptual shifts; healthy questioning of traditional standards and beliefs
-  Heart closed due to expectations or prejudices which have been taught, not personally experienced


Freshwater Mangrove






Fringed Violet *

For treating damage to the aura where there has been shock, grief or distress e.g. from abuse or assault. This remedy maintains psychic protection and is excellent for people who are drained by others or those who unconsciously absorb the physical and emotional imbalances of others. It releases shock from the body. When used in combination with Flannel Flower or Wisteria it is beneficial for those who have suffered abuse

+  Removes effects of past and present distress; psychic protection

+  Self approval; self reliance; inner strength


Fringed Violet


The Green Essence is made, not from the flowers, but rather the stems and leaves of traditional, fresh, green herbs, using the same method we use to make our Flower Essences. It is used to harmonise any internal yeast, mould and parasites to the same vibration as one’s body. It should be taken orally for a minimum two week period, five drops 3 times a day, five minutes before meals.

Green Essence can also be used topically on the skin. Place seven drops of Green Essence in a dessert bowl of water, splash on the affected area and allow to dry. Do this morning and night for two weeks. You will need to make a fresh batch every two days. You can also douche if necessary with Green Essence. This is most effectively done morning and night for a two week period. We recommend not using Green Essence externally at the same time as it is taken internally.

+ Harmonizes the vibration of any Yeast mold or parasite to one's own vibration; purifying
- Emotional distress associated with intestinal and skin disorders



Green Spider Orchid *

This remedy was also made up in Gariwerd (The Grampians) Victoria and is very much aligned with higher learnings, philosophies and deeper insight. This Essence can assist in working with telepathy, to attune a person to be more receptive to not only other people but also other species and kingdoms. It is for people who are teaching spiritual matters and understandings, helping them to impart that knowledge. It helps us to know when to share about our spiritual experiences, ideas before they are manifested and incomplete projects and when to remain silent to let the energy build. Green Spider Orchid can release nightmares, terror and phobias stemming from past lives.

+  Telepathic communication; ability to withhold information until timing is appropriate; attunement
-  Nightmares and phobias from past life experiences; intense negative reactions to the sight of blood


Green Spider Orchid

Grey Spider Flower *

This is an Essence to deal with extreme terror, especially terror experienced in life-threatening situations or psychic attack. It deals with panic and nightmares. The Essence will restore faith and trust. Interestingly enough every time I picked this flower to make the Essence I came across a spider. There is a theory that spiders are an archetypal image for primordial fear.

+  Faith; courage; calmness
-  Terror; panic; nightmares from unknown causes; fear of the supernatural and psychic attack


Grey Spider Flower

Gymea Lily 

Also known as the Giant Lily, this extraordinary plant bears large red flowers on a huge terminal head atop a stem of up to four metres high. Being so high the flowers are not seen clearly from the ground. This remedy is for excessive pride and arrogance and helps bring about humility. The Essence is for reaching up to the energy of arrogance and transforming it to achieve great heights. It gives strength to those who are ahead of their peers and helps them to stay at the top. Gymea Lily is also very beneficial for people whose personalities are very intense or extrovert, or those who are dominating, demanding and very charismatic who usually get their way. It is also for people who like to be seen and noticed and who seek glamour and status.

+  Humility; allowing others to express themselves and contribute; awareness; appreciation and taking notice of others
-  Arrogant; attention seeking; craving status and glamour; dominating and overriding personality


Gymea Lily


For people who are strict and regimented or even fanatical with themselves or for whose who use their knowledge to gain an upper hand. They constantly devour information and philosophies purely to make themselves better people but often without truly integrating it. In the positive mode these people will be accepting of themselves and their own innate knowledge and experiences, without wanting to be superior to others.

+  Acceptance of self and own innate knowledge; integration of knowledge and philosophies
-  Rigid personality; fanaticism about self improvement; excessive self discipline



Illawara Flame Tree

An Essence for those who suffer from a great sense of rejection, or who feel 'left out'. This rejection is deeply felt and is very agonising for the person. The Essence is also for self rejection, or for a person feeling apprehensive about a new experience, e.g. parenthood, or where there is a fear of responsibility. This Essence will help a person take that first step. It is also beneficial for those whose numbers in numerology are 11, 22 or 33 - people who have usually chosen to do very important work this life.

+  Self approval; self reliance; inner strength
-  Sense of rejection; being left out; fear of responsibility


Illawara Flame Tree

Isopogon *

This Essence is for those who live very much in their heads. They are dominated by their intellect and there is often a separation between their heart and head. This Essence, like Tall Yellow Top, connects the heart and the head. It especially benefits those people who control through stubbornness. It also enables the retrieval of long-forgotten skills and information.

The small spiral arrangement of this plant's yellow flowers fade and leave a small, grey, round nut which will stay on the plant for many years. In spiritual symbolism the colour yellow represents wisdom and knowledge.

+  Able to learn from past experiences; remember the past; retrieval of forgotten skills

-  Unable to learn from past experiences; stubborn and controlling personality



Jacaranda *

An Essence for people who dither, never completing things because they are constantly changing them. There is a fine distinction between Sundew and Jacaranda. Sundew deals with dreamers (the 'space cadet'), whilst Jacaranda is for those who dither, are 'all over the place' and are always changing their mind.

+  Decisiveness; clear mindedness; focused attention
-  Scattered; changeable; dithering; unfocused; rushing



Kangaroo Paw

This Essence is for people who are 'green' and socially inept. They do not know how to properly interact with other people. They can be very insensitive because they are so focused on themselves that they miss the cues and needs of other people around them. They can be very self centred.

+  Relaxed; sensitivity; savoir faire; enjoyment of people
-  Unaware of appropriate social behavior; insensitivity to others needs; self centered; awkward; clumsy

Kangaroo Paw


Kapok Bush

Mount Barnett, an Aboriginal Cattle Station on the rugged Gibb River Road in the Kimberleys, was where I made this Essence.

It is for people who have a tendency to give up very easily, who are easily discouraged. It can also give people an overview of a plan or situation and then allow them to work it through sequentially and be able to bring it to fruition. It could even be for someone with a piece of technology or machinery, to assist them to understand how it works.

+  Persistence; willing to "give it a go"; application
-  Easily discouraged; resignation; apathy


Kapok Bush

Lichen * 

Lichen helps an individual to be aware of, look for and go to the Light at the moment of physical death. The alternative to the soul going through to the Light is to stay earth bound in the astral plane — what we commonly refer to as 'a ghost'. There is a great deal of darkness operating on the astral plane and it is certainly a level that the soul would be well advised to move through quickly. A violent or sudden death can also result in the increased likelihood of the Spirit staying earthbound and the spraying of Lichen from an atomiser bottle would be of great benefit for those souls, helping them to see and go to the Light. Even in cases where there is an unexpected sudden death, eg. a car accident, the individual who dies in such an experience, is fully aware at the level of their Higher Self, of what is about to happen and that they are going to pass over. Two weeks before such an event the etheric body starts to disengage and unravel from the physical body. Lichen assists the etheric and the physical bodies to separate in preparation for passing over. Lichen is contained in the Transition Essence Combination. The latter can be taken by people who are in the process of passing over or else going through major changes in their life such as changing career, moving house, etc. In these latter circumstances one can rest assured that the Lichen in this Combination would definitely not lead to their etheric body separating from their physical body!

+  Eases one’s transition into the light; assists separation between the physical and etheric body; releases earth bound energies
-  Not knowing to look for and move into the Light when passing over; earth bound in the astral plane



Little Flannel Flower *

This Essence deals with the child aspect in us all. It addresses the expression of playfulness, being carefree and spontaneous joy. It is for people who regard life as a very sombre and serious experience. It is also for children who tend to grow up much too quickly, who take on the troubles of the world and get old before their time. It helps children get in contact with their spirit guides. Its delicate, tiny, white flowers cover the bush with a blanket of colour and white light, yet it is easily overlooked due to its size.

+   Playfulness; joyful; ability to have fun; spontaneity
-   Denial of the “child” in the personality; too serious


Little Flannel Flower

Macrocarpa *

Macrocarpa is a Eucalypt that grows in the wheat belt area of South West Western Australia, the stands of which are becoming increasingly rare and very few survive today. This tree has the largest flower of any Eucalypt. Both the tree and the flower have a tremendous power about them and this comes out in its properties. This Essence brings about renewed enthusiasm, endurance and inner strength.

+   Renews enthusiasm
-   Personally drained



Mint Bush *

This Essence like many others, was made in the Valley of the Winds in the Olgas (or Katajuta) in central Australia. Mint Bush helps one to cope with the dross being burnt off before emerging at a new spiritual level. Just prior to any such initiation there are usually spiritual trials and tribulations that one goes through when one feels they are being tested, often to their limit. At this time there is usually a great deal of confusion and one can have a sense that everything is too difficult and too much to deal with and resolve. These feelings can also arise during intense changes in your life - divorce, bankruptcy, severe illness or accidents, changing religious beliefs or affiliations.

+  Smooth spiritual initiation; clarity; calmness; ability to cope
-  Perturbation; confusion; spiritual emergence; initial turmoil and void of spiritual initiation 


Mint Bush

Monga Waratah 

Monga Waratah a shrub up to 4 metres has a very small distribution around the moist forested areas and creeks of the Mongarlowe River near Braidwood in New South Wales. Its flower has the appearance of an open hand reaching out.

This Essence can help a person find their inner strength. It addresses the negative conditions of disempowerment; of being overly needy; of feeling not strong enough; of feeling unable to do things alone; of always needing the strength and support of others; feeling choked or stifled in situations or relationships and feeling not able or strong enough to leave. This Essence is very much addressing co-dependency as well as strengthening one’s will. Consequently, it can be thought of when working with addictions. This remedy helps one to reclaim their spirit.

+  Strengthening of one's will; reclaiming of ones spirit; belief that one can break the dependency on any behavior, substance or person, self empowerment
-  Neediness; inability to do things alone; disempowerment; addictive personality


Monga Waratah

Mountain Devil

This Essence helps one deal with feelings of hatred, anger, jealousy and the major blocks to expressing love. It is for people who tend to be suspicious of others. Mountain Devil helps to develop unconditional love and acceptance. It helps one express anger in a healthy way and so develop sound boundaries. This may open the way to forgiveness.

+  Unconditional love; forgiveness; happiness; inner peace
-  Hatred, anger, jealousy; holding of grudges; suspiciousness


Mountain Devil


Mulla Mulla *

Mulla Mulla is for the personal recovery from the shattering experience of burns from heat or fire. This Essence reduces the negative effects of fire and the sun's rays. It is for those with a fear of fire or flames (often from a past life). If this fear is unconscious it will often manifest in a lack of vitality, as if they wish to fade away. If a person presents with this picture they can, with appropriate counselling, reveal this fear of fire or hot objects. This Essence was made up in Palm Valley, one of the hottest parts of the country and where some of the oldest plants in Australia are found.

+   Reduce the negative effects of fire and the sun’s rays
-   Distress associated with exposure to fire, heat and sun


Mulla Mulla

Old Man Banksia * 

For people who are weary, frustrated and disheartened by setbacks. This Essence helps to bring a spark into those people's lives who are heavy and slow moving. They tend to be reliable, dependable people who steadily plod on, often hiding their weariness while battling on with unceasing effort. The Old Man Banksia is a gnarled and twisted tree and it seems to be a storehouse of old wisdom. It is one of the first plants discovered by Joseph Banks.

+   Ability to cope with whatever life brings

-   Disheartened; weary; phlegmatic personality

Old Man Banksia


Paw Paw *

For the assimilation and integration of new ideas and information, especially where there is a tendency to feel overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of that information. A feature of this plant is its very narrow stem which, at the top, branches into a mass of foliage to bear large and ponderous fruits. This Essence should be used when one is unable to solve a problem. It will activate the Higher Self, where we have the answer to all our problems. It will ease the burden of problems as it activates the intuitive processes to provide solutions.

+   Focus and clarity
-   Overwhelm; burdened by decision


Paw Paw

Peach-flowered Tea-tree * 

This is an Essence for people with extreme mood swings, hypochondriacal people and especially those who have a fear of getting old. It can also be used for people who get enthusiastic and then, for no apparent reason, lose that enthusiasm. It is for those who do not 'follow through' on their goals and convictions. Once the challenge goes they become bored and lose interest. It will help develop stability, consistency, drive and commitment.

+   Balance; responsibility for own health; completion of projects
-   Mood swings; hypochondria; easily bored and loses interest in projects


Peach-flowered Tea-Tree

Philotheca *

This Essence allows people to accept acknowledgment for their achievements and to 'let in' love. They are often good listeners and generous, giving people. It allows shy people to speak of their plans and success. In its natural environment, the flower is easily overlooked and often mistaken for other species.

+   Ability to accept praise; acknowledgement and love; open to abundance
-   Excessive generosity; inability to accept acknowledgement



Pink Flannel Flower 

Pink Flannel Flower, a very rare plant belonging to the Apiaceae family, is of the same genus as two other of our Bush Essences, Flannel Flower and Little Flannel Flower. The Pink Flannel Flower is found only in the upper Blue Mountains where it is known to grow in a few isolated locations and even then its’ flowering is very spasmodic and unpredictable. It was over forty years since Pink Flannel Flower was last seen flowering, which may explain why some Botanists and local people even doubted its actual existence!

This flower is all about heart energy, which is not surprising when you observe the intensity of its pink centre. It allows one to be in a state of gratitude for all aspects of their life and for what they are experiencing around them. Pink Flannel Flower brings about an appreciation of, and helps one take delight and pleasure in, the details and little things in life; to see and be aware of the blessings in every moment. Otherwise life can easily become dull, flat and one’s “joie de vivre” will be missing.

This Essence has great affinity for young babies whilst both in the womb and in those early years of life. Pink Flannel Flower will help keep their heart and heart chakra open with the high, love vibration that they came in with, as they adjust to the density of our third dimensional earthly reality.

+   Engenders gratitude, appreciation and awareness of one's blessings
-   Lack of awareness of everyday blessings, ungrateful, unappreciative 


Pink Flannel Flower

Pink Mulla Mulla 

This annual is found in the stony country of the outback and has a striking, pinky-purple conical flower head. The Pink Mulla Mulla is for those who have suffered a deep spiritual wound long ago, often in their first incarnation, where they felt abandoned by Spirit which has led to a deep scar on the soul and psyche. It works on the outer causal bodies clearing sabotage, (and fear of spiritual abandonment once more) that is stopping their spiritual growth. On an emotional level, Pink Mulla Mulla is for those who put out prickles to keep people away. They tend to be quite isolated and unable to resolve a hurt, wrong or injustice which can be felt very deeply. This impinges on their attitude to those around them and can make them suspicious of people's motives, allowing them no rest. They are often on guard against people hurting them again, they may protect themselves by saying hurtful things to others. What they say to those around them does not always reflect how they really feel. It is merely a way of keeping people at a safe distance.

+  Deep spiritual healing; trusting and opening up
-  Deep psychic wounds; guarded and prickly persona to keep people away and prevent being hurt


Pink Mulla Mulla

Red Grevillea *

This Essence is for people who feel stuck. It acts as a catalyst for those who know what they want to achieve but do not know how to go about it. It is for people who are too reliant on others. It promotes independence and boldness. This Essence is extremely effective though the changes may not be as anticipated. Like the Grey Spider Flower this plant is a member of the Grevillea family and its flowers are a dark red colour, similar in colour to the Waratah.

+   Strength to leave unpleasant situations; boldness; indifferent to judgment of others
-   Feeling stuck; affected by criticism; reliant on others


Red Grevillea

Red Helmet Orchid *

This Essence was made up under unique circumstances on Toolrunup Peak, the second highest peak in the Stirling Ranges. Red Helmet Orchid helps a man bond to his child or children. It helps men to be aware to allocate quality family time. Making this Essence required not only sunlight but also moonlight, thereby adding the feminine principle so as to allow bonding. It is also for anyone with unresolved father issues, which can manifest as a recurrent, lifelong rebellious attitude to authority figures - police, headmasters, bosses, etc.

+  Helps father/child bonding; sensitivity; respect
-  Unresolved father issues; rebelliousness; problems with authority


Red Helmet Orchid

Red Lily *

Red Lily is the same flower as the Sacred Lotus in the Buddhist tradition. It is for spirituality and connection to God in a grounded and centred way, allowing a person to have a wholeness to their spirituality by also realising the need to develop and maintain a balanced physical and emotional life. It has similar properties to that of Sundew for feeling scattered, not whole, vague and split, though Sundew applies to daily life whereas Red Lily is in relation to one's spirituality. I waded thigh deep in mud through a billabong teeming with leeches, turtles and snakes to pick this flower. Such is the joy of discovery.

+   Grounded; focused; living in the present; opens crown chakra; enhances spiritual evolvement
-   Spiritually ungrounded; vagueness; indecisiveness; daydreaming


Red Lily

Red Suva Frangipani *

The Essence of this deep blood red Frangipani was made on the coast near Darwin in the Northern Territory. It is unusual in that it does not have the sweet aromatic quality of other Frangipanis but rather a very heavy, musky odour. Its common name in the Pacific is "Bleeding Heart Frangipani". This Essence addresses the great emotional intensity, difficulty and hardship that people can go through when a relationship is ending, close to ending or going through a very "rocky" period.

It can also be taken for the enormous initial pain and sadness of the loss of a loved one. The person can be feeling greatly disturbed, not suicidal as in the case of Waratah, but torn apart by the event or situation. Sturt Desert Pea deals with unresolved grief from the past.

+  Feeling calm and nurtured; inner peace and strength to cope
-  Initial grief, turmoil, rawness and emotional upset of a rocky of just ended relationship


Red Suva Frangipani

Rough Bluebell

This Essence was made in the spiritual centre of Australia in the Olgas also known as Katajuta by the Aborigines. This is an Essence to help people fully express the love vibration innate within them. Rough Bluebell is for people who are very manipulative and for those who are deliberately malicious and use people, either subtly or openly. It is different from Kangaroo Paw which is for those who hurt or ignore the needs of others in an unconscious way. This Essence can be for those who play the role of the martyr and like to have others obligated to them. They are aware of the needs of others but want love and affection for themselves and are not concerned about or unable to give it back.

  Compassion; release of one's inherent love vibration; sensitivity
-  Deliberately hurtful, manipulative, exploitive or malicious


Rough Bluebell

She Oak

An Essence which is very beneficial in overcoming imbalances in and bringing about a sense of wellbeing in females. It will benefit women who feel distressed about infertility. It removes those personal blocks that prevent conception. It can also be used in conjunction with Flannel Flower which will help remove karmic patterns hindering conception. The fruit of this tree is very similar in size to a woman's ovary. This Essence was made from the female tree of the species.

+ Emotionally open to conceive, female balance
- Female imbalance, inability to conceive for non-physical reasons


She Oak

Silver Princess

This is another rare Eucalypt. Although widely cultivated there is only one remaining natural stand of this beautiful tree on a granite outcrop known as Boyagin Rock in the south west of Western Australia. Of all the Eucalypts, there is none more attractive than the Silver Princess. This Essence brings about an awareness of one's life direction. Though it may not always reveal to a person their full life plan, it will aid people who are at crossroads, helping to show them what their next step is. It helps give them an understanding of that direction. This Essence is also excellent when one has reached an important goal and yet one is left feeling very flat, thinking 'is this all there is'. In this case, it gives one a glimpse or a sense of what is next and allows one to enjoy the journey whilst striving for the goal.

+   Life purpose and direction; motivation
-   Aimless; despondent; lacking life direction


Silver Princess

Slender Rice Flower

Slender Rice Flower is for people who are racist, narrow minded and lack humility. Humanity has, through its many wars, seen the grim ramifications of these attitudes. This Essence can be used for group harmony and conflict resolution when individual egos get in the way. It allows for greater co-operation between people for the common good. This Essence has the ability to make an individual aware of the common divinity in all people.

+  Co-operation and group harmony; humility; perception of beauty in and acceptance of others
-  Racism formed from personal experiences; narrow mindedness; comparison with others


Slender Rice Flower

Southern Cross

This is another Essence made in the Stirling Ranges of Western Australia. It is for those people who have a tendency to feel that they are a victim, that life has been hard on them or that they have been hard done by. This Essence helps people to understand that they create all the situations that happen to them in life and that they can change their situation by changing their thoughts.

+   Personal power; positive attitude; taking responsibility for self
-   “Poor me” mentality; poverty consciousness; feeling a victim; blaming others


Southern Cross

Spinifex *

Spinifex is a native grass which prefers the arid and semi-arid areas of inland Australia. This was the first Essence made from a grass species. It is for those who have a sense of being a victim to and having no control over illnesses, especially those with persistent and recurring symptoms.

+   Empowers through understanding and awareness of the emotional causes of illness
-   Sense of being a victim to illness



Sturt Desert Pea

Sturt Desert Pea is the floral emblem of South Australia. It is for deep hurts and sorrows. I have come across at least three Aboriginal legends connecting this flower to grief and sadness. This is one of the most powerful of all the Essences and, like so many of the Bush Essences, it can help the person bring about amazing changes in their life.

+  Diffuses sad memories; allows one to let go; motivates
-  Deep hurt; sadness; emotional pain

Sturt Desert Pea


Sturt Desert Rose *

This Essence is for guilt, including sexual guilt, which can be an emotional trigger for many sexual problems. It is also for following your own inner convictions and morality, helping you to follow through with what you know you have to do. If one is not true to themselves then there can often arise, as a consequence, feelings of regret or remorse. It can restore self esteem that has been damaged by past actions you may have felt guilty about.

+  Allows one to follow own inner convictions and morality; personal integrity
-  Guilt; feeling bad about self because of previous actions; easily led


Sturt Desert Rose


This Essence is for people who are vague and indecisive and do not pay attention to detail. For those who tend to 'split off' easily, especially when there is work to be done. This Essence will keep them focused in the present and reduces procrastination. It is for those who tend to be vague, dreamy or drawn to drugs. This carnivorous plant is found in damp, boggy areas and has a crimson, 'earth-hugging' base. It sends up a tall stem to which delicate little flowers are attached.

+   Practical; attention to detail; grounded; focused
-   Procrastination; disconnected; spaced out; lack of focus



Sunshine Wattle *

For people who have had a difficult time in the past and who are stuck there. They bring their negative experiences of the past into the present. Life is seen as being grim and full of struggle. When they look at life they only see bleakness, hard times and disappointment continuing into the future. In the positive mode these people will see the beauty, joy and excitement in the present and optimistically anticipate the future.

+  Optimism; hope; acceptance of the beauty and joy in the present; open to a bright future; joyful expectation
-  Struggle; stuck in the past; expectation of a grim future
, struggle


Sunshine Wattle

Sydney Rose

The first aspect of the rare Sydney Rose to strike you is its intense, beautiful colour of the purest, pure pink. Pink is symbolic of the love vibration and the healing quality of this remarkable Essence is to realise and know — on a deep heart level not merely an intellectual level — that there is no separation between us, that we are all one.

If human consciousness is going to evolve then this will need to be the one fundamental premise to be embraced and to operate from, for in so doing it will create compassion, tolerance and love for others and the willingness to help and support others. Not surprisingly then, that whilst making this Essence I kept hearing over and over this message "the crowning glory, the crowning glory, this is the crowning glory of the Bush Essences."

+  Realizing we are all one; feeling safe and at peace; heartfelt communication
-  Feeling separate, deserted, unloved, or morbid


Sydney Rose

Tall Mulla Mulla

This is another Essence which was made up in the Olgas or Katajuta. It is a small upright annual with a long pink-purple flower head. It is for people who are not at ease being with others. They prefer their own company and enjoy being alone but miss out on the emotional growth that interaction with others can bring. On an emotional level there is not much 'circulating with people', as it feels too troublesome and uncomfortable. They do not easily mix with others. They prefer to be alone where they know their own environment and can avoid confrontation with others. They will often go to any length to keep the peace even if it means agreeing to or saying things they don't believe. They do not breath in life deeply for they prefer holding on to the familiar rather than being open to the new.

+  Feeling relaxed and secure with other people; encourages social interaction
-  Ill at ease; fear of circulating and mixing; loner; distressed by and avoids confrontation


Tall Mulla Mulla

Tall Yellow Top

This Essence is for alienation. There is no feeling of connection or sense of belonging to family, workplace, country, self, etc. Often as a consequence of this alienation the head, or intellect, takes over from the heart. As many people have been in this state for a long time, Tall Yellow Top will often need to be used for longer periods, sometimes for up to 6-8 weeks without a break. It is important when in this state to reach out to others for support. Be patient with the results from this Essence if it appears to be a little slow in acting. The results are well worth waiting for.

+  Sense of belonging
-  Alienation; lonely; isolated


Tall Yellow Top

Turkey Bush *

I made this Essence in Katherine Gorge, at the top end of Australia. This region contains the world's oldest known continuous artwork in the form of Aboriginal rock paintings. It is appropriate that the Essence was made here as it is for creativity. It is for both the beginner and the artist. Turkey Bush allows them to tune into their Higher Self and helps them to move through creative blocks and discouragements. This Essence brings about a desire to express and allows creativity to flow.

+   Inspired creativity; renews artistic confidence
-   Creative block; disbelief in own creative ability


Turkey Bush

Waratah *

For the person who is going through the 'black night of the soul' and is in utter despair. It gives them the strength and courage to cope with their crisis and will bring their survival skills to the fore. This remedy will also enhance and amplify those skills. It is for emergencies and great challenges. This powerful remedy often only needs to be used for four or five days. The Waratah Essence was made with great assistance and guidance in profound metaphysical circumstances, from what was known to be the last flowering Waratah of the season.

+   Courage; tenacity; faith; adaptability; survival skills
-   Black despair; hopelessness; inability to respond to crisis



Wedding Bush *

This Essence is excellent for commitment, whether in relationships, employment, the family or personal goals. It can be of great benefit for a relationship when one or both individuals are uncertain if they wish to work through the issues their partner is bringing up in them. Wedding Bush can also be used for people who flit from one relationship to another or for when the initial attraction in the relationship diminishes.

+   Commitment to relationships and goals; dedication to life purpose
-   Difficulty with commitment


Wedding Bush

Wild Potato Bush

An excellent remedy for anyone feeling burdened or frustrated by any physical restriction or limitation with their body. This Essence brings about a sense of renewed enthusiasm, freedom and the ability to move on in life. It is especially for those who feel heavy and need to step out of the old self, but who feel it is difficult to do so.

+  Freedom to move on in life
-  Sense of being weighed down and encumbered

Wild Potato Bush

Wisteria *

This Essence is for women who are uncomfortable with their sexuality. They maybe unable to relax and enjoy sex, or afraid of physical intimacy and/or sensuality. Wisteria is included in the Sexuality Essence Combination for it is especially beneficial for those who have had traumatic sexual experiences. Negative beliefs around sexuality can develop from the time in the womb or from their parents attitude towards sex. The remedy works in clearing these beliefs, allowing sexual enjoyment, openness, gentleness and ease of sexual intimacy. Wisteria also allows the 'macho male' to be more aware of his softer, feminine side.

+   Trust; fulfillment and enjoyment of sexuality; allowing warm sensuous feelings in the body
-   Women who feel uncomfortable about their sexuality; fear arising from sexual abuse



Yellow Cowslip Orchid *

Yellow is the colour that symbolises the intellect and the element of Air. This orchid has a very social and gregarious nature and is commonly found growing in clusters. The element of Air is very concerned with social order, group activity and harmony. When out of balance there is excessive judgement and criticism.

+   Humanitarian concern; impartiality; can see both the detail and the big picture; objective analysis
-   Critical; judgmental; bureaucratic


Yellow Cowslip Orchid

Message from Ian White, the developer of the White Light Essences:

"The White Light Essences have been brought through by Spirit to help us  invoke and access the realm of Nature and Spirit within ourselves, so as to more fully explore and understand our spirituality and fulfill our highest potential. There are seven essences in the range including: Water, Earth, Fire, Air, Higher Self, Devic and Angelic. This project has taken me over four years to complete and has led me on a journey to some of the most remote and sacred 


locations around the world. During the past 20 years I have researched and developed the Australian Bush Flower Essences - they have been a stepping stone to bring me to the point in my growth and spirituality where I have been able to make the White Light Essences. They were made with the utmost integrity, humility and love, it is 

in that spirit that I commend and offer them to you.

In much Love, Light and Respect,
Ian White"



This essence is made up of two remedies, combined. One from the Northern Hemisphere Isle of Iona, Scotland, and one from the Southern Hemisphere's Heron Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.  This remedy integrates the element of Water within you and attunes you to its vibration. This essence is appropriate for anyone who feels that they can't let of aspects of the past. This remedy along with the element of Water, is very nurturing and cleansing, and encourages us all to be more open to receiving. It is strongly suggested, and highly recommended that the Water Essence should be the first of the seven White Light Essences to be taken. This chronology allows for the flowing expansion of our reality and consequently paves the way for fully utilizing the unique qualities of the other Essences - greatly enhancing and activating them. To do otherwise will appreciably reduce the effectiveness of the results.


Made inside the Cave at Patal Bhuvaneshwar high in the Himalayas, India. Earth Essence can take you beyond your old limitations. It is for grounding, patience, for clarity and focus. It creates a wonderful sense of deep restfulness especially in the heart and base chakras. Spiritual aspects of this essence include being able to tune into the subtle realms and vibrations. It fosters a strong connections, respect, and reverence for nature, the Ancients, the earth nature spirits, the earth, the life force, life and the origins of life.


The Fire Essence was made amongst the magnificent red rock domes in the sacred area known as either Katajuta, the Aboriginal name, or The Olgas, which represents both the physical and spiritual center of Australia. The Fire Essence has a strong connection with a primordial time at the very beginning of intelligence on earth. This essence can open people up to their most ancient source: back to the moment when the soul originally chose the life purpose for its earthly incarnation. It helps to unlock the most sacred part of an individual, revealing one of the last bastions of inner secrets and ancient knowledge that a person possesses - their original and ongoing life paths. When this is revealed, an individual will be left with a fiery sense of purpose and direction. 

Katajuta, Central Australia


This essence was made over the 9th and 10th of June 1999, on top of Schafberg Mountain, St. Wolfgang, Austria. The Air Essence has the potential to bring out a person's spirituality to the highest degree with integrity and passion, while at the same time allowing one to bend and alter his/her reality in a very profound way. This essence enables people to understand that they are indeed a miracle and all their actions are miraculous. Yet it hinders one from becoming conceited from this knowledge, rather allowing them to be humble and lighthearted.

Higher Self

Higher Self was the first of the White Light Essences, made on the 25th of March, 1999 at Palenque, Mexico. The Higher Self Essence funnels and channels energy of the highest order into one's very core, from where it will radiate out and expand dramatically. This Essence helps us o be aware of what is beyond the physical experience and can help one tap into sources of ancient wisdom and knowledge. Our Higher Self is comprised of every lifetime we have ever had and this Essence offers the opportunity to help a person connect with these earlier incarnations.


This essence was prepared on the summer solstice on the 21st of June 2000 in the Chalice Well Garden of Glastonbury, England, an amazing sanctuary of beauty, serenity and peacefulness. This Devic Essence made on the solstice helps to establish very strong links with the Devic Kingdom, while its spiritual healing quality returns one to a place of simplicity and blissful peace. It brings out a feeling of total oneness - being at one with absolutely everything and far less concerned and preoccupied with the hassle and problems of life. The Holy Grail is closely intertwined with the question of destiny and with Galstonbury. The Devic Essence made from here also addresses this theme. It will help you to remember why you are here and to become more passionate about your life path once again.


This Essence was made in Peru on the 28th of March 2000 on the top of Putucusi, one of the most sacred mountains to the ancient Incas. Angelic Essence helps us to be more open to receiving from on high, the Angelic tones of inspiration, love, awareness, communication, guidance and instruction which can lead is to an infinite range of potential possibilities in our mortal lives. The Angelic Essence brings the energy from heaven directly down to earth, uniting the two. It helps us to realize that the spiritual exists in everything and to transcend the deceptive illusion of the physical. The Angelic Essence provides nor only a key to ancient knowledge but also to future wisdom. The Angelic Essence produces a sense of empowerment, especially in relationships and stressful situations by creating mental clarity. This remedy can alleviate and clear our past patterns and blockages, allowing us to respond in a more appropriate way rather than merely reacting.

White Light CD

From time immemorial man has recognized that light was essential for life. Color, is a manifestation of light and in all cultures and spiritual teachings throughout the ages color has always been associated with divine meaning.
Music too, has also been closely identified to color from the earliest of times, with each color being invoked in specific chants or religious music. Two and half thousand years ago, Pythagoras mathematically demonstrated this connection through his theory of color and harmonic scale.
Sound (pure vibration), is the force inherent in all things, it has a powerful effect on the cellular structure of human beings and a very profound effect on our psyche and soul.
In esoteric numerology each person's master number corresponds with a specific color. Now, also associated with each color is a  musical composition, that would help balance anyone whose master number corresponds to that particular color.

Light Frequency Essences                                               Top of Page

  Antarctic Essence  

• Allows you to feel tremendous calm, peace and stillness within yourself.
• Enables you to be aware of and enhances your vision of what is necessary and essential.
• Helps reveal and dissolve very deep and hidden aspects of yourself.
• Connects one to both the Wisdom of the Ancients and your ancient past.
• To trust Spirit and the unfolding of your life and its direction.
• Assists you to find your own core, pure essence.

The Antarctic Essence allows you to be aware of what is really necessary in your life and in the situations that you are encountering. It enables you to feel tremendous calm, peace and stillness within yourself. This Essence releases those things that are not essential to you and that take you away from your inner peace and being at one with nature. The purity of Antarctica and the Antarctic Essence assists you to find your own pure essence – the very core of yourself – and to let go of whatever takes you from this timeless, clear-centered part of yourself. It allows you to go deeply into things and not get distracted; to see the core of things and what’s important. If you are too distracted it will help to pull you back into harmony.

Another key aspect of the Antarctic Essence is that it will reveal to you aspects of yourself that are very deep and hidden – what are referred to sometimes as ‘old dark crystals’. This Essence  will bring the light to them and dissolve these old patterns and beliefs (which may have been formed in ancient times or may be
  early beliefs developed this lifetime). Their dissolution will support you to trust Spirit, to trust your path and to show you the necessary new steps.

The Antarctic Essence can also help you to connect to the wisdom of the Ancients as well as your own ancient past and the communication of anything needed from that time. It enables you to find the patience to be very still. This will lead you to trust in the unfolding of your life and its direction with openness to these new revelations and willingness to seek and follow them, even when dealing with major change.

There’s a deep stillness that can come with trust in life, nature and God, which when achieved will help you find your own peace and stillness, and allow you to be able to stay in this state more readily. This Essence can help in the clarity of both your vision for what is necessary and essential in your life, as well as your communication of it.

Madagascar Essence     

This essence was prepared in the beautiful and pristine Ankarana Special Reserve in northern Madagascar, the world's fourth largest island. The greatest gift of this essence is that it allows you to detach from the limited beliefs of mass consciousness around the issues of health and well being. Removing the predilection for disease from this rigidly constrained thinking creates a sacred inner space of peace, harmony, balance and alignment. Clears lower three chakras enabling an easier transfer of energy to the higher chakras.
