How to Use Flower Essences

WHAT ARE FLOWER ESSENCES?

First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® are completely natural preparations made from individual New Zealand native flowers, ferns, trees and plants. Flower essences are powerful tools for personal transformation and for restoring harmony and balance. Flower essences are created when flowers or plants release their essential healing energies or vibrational blue print into water. The essence is then naturally potentised to amplify and enhance its efficacy.

First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® are pristine plant vibrations held in water. Based on the ancient holistic healing principle that vibration moves faster through water, the holistic healing vibration of a plant is transferred to a person who takes the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® via a natural process of resonance transfer. Resonance transfer is a dynamic natural and non-intrusive process of working with the powers of nature.

Much like a tuning fork that is used to tune a piano, First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® tune a person’s vibration to a state of genuine natural holistic wellbeing.

"The universal award winning vibrational medicine system that is First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® is based on the premise that the holistic human organism can be likened to a musical instrument. Like all musical instruments it needs to be kept perfectly tuned."

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber
Founder, Co-Creator and Head Tutor
