The Sun Method

We only make sun method essences when the sky is perfectly blue without a cloud across the sun.For Healingherbs this is essential to the integrity and vitality of the essences we produce.

Fresh spring water is placed into a thin glass bowl.The flowers are gently placed on the surface and left in uninterrupted sunshine for several hours.The base of essences made using the sun method are created where the flowers are collected.Our approach means that you can sense the vitality in the water.

Flowers are chosen when the plant or tree is in full bloom.We only select healthy specimens of the true species which are growing without interference or hindrance.Plants growing near roads, power lines or any disruptive activity would not be used.Artificial or mechanical interference can distort the energies of the essence.

Dr Edward Bach

Edward Bach was born in Moseley, near Birmingham, in 1886 and trained as a doctor in London. For several years he worked investigating the role of bacteriology in chronic disease. His researches led him to recognise that there were clear personality types that related to the various patterns of ill health, irrespective of the physical symptoms being presented by the patient. Working with vaccine therapy and later with homeopathic remedies, he moved towards the discovery of the flower essences. These he felt could help to harmonise the emotional imbalances that he came to see as the real cause of physical illness.
