What is Flower Essence Therapy?

Flower essence therapy is the therapeutic and systematic use of flower essences to heal wounding of the psyche and emotions. Flower Essence therapy treats chronic disharmonious challenges that keep you from enjoying life. These challenges can be from trauma, abuse, negative thinking or negative conditioning.  Often the conditions people seek help with are emotional challenges they have a hard time addressing on their own. Flower Essence Therapy can help you unravel the roots of pain, anxiety, sadness, confusion, depression and negative conditioning around food, sex, love and money. Flower Essence Therapy is a gentle way to help you with difficult and troubling emotional pain and stress.

“Behind all disease lie our fears, our anxieties, our greed, our likes and dislikes.” Dr. Bach

How do flower essences work therapeutically?

Flower essences are liquid, energetic remedies derived from living flowers. They bring the energy of the plant directly into the human system where they work to bring about movements towards greater health and balance. Because of their energetic and living quality, they work deeply in the emotional system assisting in the release of early wounds and trauma. These early imprints create patterns and belief systems from which we live our lives. When taking flower essences, a person lets go of these deep-rooted blueprints and creates healthier behaviors and relationships.




My name is Mark D’Aquila I am a passionate flower essence practitioner and advocate for the deeper potential of life. A lifelong pioneer who travels the unbeaten path, my interests have always resided in just what is just beyond convention. My first encounter with the plant medicine known as flower essences or flower remedies was in 1997. That year I found a book about them and since that day my curiosity has never ceased to wane. What fascinates me and keeps my passion alive is the potent, gentle and recognizable healing qualities of flower essences.  I enjoy sharing my discoveries and insights with people who are ready to experience the deep healing and balancing qualities of flower remedies.

In 2003 I began making and researching my new flower essences from plants which I was drawn to. In that same year I began my formal study of this medicine with David Dalton an esteemed teacher and researcher in New Hampshire. Since then I have gleaned much wisdom from other teachers including Julia Murray and Kate Gilday. Over the years my interest in exploring this medicine has led me to a variety of environments to co-create new and useful essences. Certain bio-regions are of particular interest to me; including but not limited to the Pine Barrens, deserts, and alpine environments of the Northern California.

In 2007 I started Essence Alchemy which is the home and banner for the essences I co-create. I am humbled and honored to say my first body of work; the Elemental Garden Kit has found place in the repertory of many healers and flower essence therapists. Going forward my aim is to deepen and find ways to make this medicine more available to people in practical ways. I trust the plants and hold the vision that they can bring deep healing and personal refinement as we all work towards creating a healthy life and relationship with Gaia.
