In Australia, Bush Flower Essences are extracted from Australian botanicals, making them uniquely Australian. These essences may assist to alleviate a myriad of imbalances which may manifest on a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual level. Australian Bush Flower Essences are often prescribed to alleviate the underlying emotional roots of disease and subsequently promote health and wellbeing. Australian Bush Flower Essences are non-toxic and may be used internally or topically.

FAQ’s about Western Herbal Medicine
- How long will it take/how many appointments will I need?
Each person is unique. Working as a team, you together with your Herbalist, commit to change. Together you listen to your body and its needs in the quest for the health and well-being you deserve. How long you have been living with your health issue further impacts on your needs. Our Herbalist helps you prepare the beautiful soil of your body, in which you will be planting your own healthy seed.
It is not realistic to expect the IBS from which you have suffered for the last 10 years, to be resolved within 2 months and attending only 2 appointments. It is not always possible to measure the severity of your condition, and sometimes we need to take a ‘watch and see’ approach. Healing, specifically when disease is resultant from unhealthy habits, can take months to years to resolve. Long term health comes from releasing unhealthy habits and embracing an ongoing healthy lifestyle.
