Flower Power ~ explore the amazing world of flower essences and how they can help you cope with Life’s ‘ups and downs’.
I was first introduced to flower essences around 2002 when my children were young and having trouble sleeping. We had already been using other natural remedies, but these essences seemed to be much easier to take and more consistent in their results. In 2006 I took my first training course and have since studied with several of the world’s leading essence makers. There are now essences made from crystals and gems and environmental essences made in the world’s spiritual and sacred spaces, as well as the more traditional remedies made from flowers.
My name is Louise Cardon and I am also known as the ‘Queen of Calm’. I help busy women find more calm, balance and focus so that they can spend more time doing what makes them happy with the people they love. There are many tools in my kit, but essences are something that I use with most of my clients because they are effective and easy to use.
Here’s what some of my clients have to say:
Thank you Louise for your support during the rapid growth of my business last year. I have relied on your skillful use of essences to keep me grounded and keep me taking action even when the fears and inner gremlins threatened to stop the show. I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for the support of your essences – maybe still hiding under my duvet dreaming of an ideal business – instead of running one! I can recommend you wholeheartedly to anyone who finds that what holds them back in business is not practical ‘know how’ but negative emotions and unconscious patterns. CW
I can’t recommend Louise enough, i had been feeling for a while out of balance, very nervous & fearful about some speaking engagements that were coming up. She recommended the flower essences and specifically the one for Public speaking. I was just amazed at how almost “instantly” they worked, I felt like a wave of confidence within me that when it was my turn to stand up I was grounded and ready to speak – I was like a different person.

Louise was recommended to me by a friend when I was having problems with body stiffness, caused by stress. Louise treated me with Australian Bush Flower Essences and Reiki which was very effective, relieving the symptoms within a few weeks. I continue to work with her and cannot thank her enough for the help and support she has given me. MA
You don’t have to see a practitioner to try essences (although if you have complex issues it might save some trial and error) because there are many ranges now available ‘over the counter’. The most well known are the Bach Flower Remedies, which have been around since the 1930s. You may even have used their ‘Rescue Remedy’ without knowing it was a flower essence.
But how do you know what to buy?
You can find essences in many health food shops, your High Street Boots may even stock the Bach Remedies, and of course you can find everything online.
You may well be overwhelmed by the choice available, which is why I am running an online workshop to help you to choose and use flower essences, gem elixirs and environmental essences.
I used to run these workshops face to face, but it will work just as well online. Interest in essences has grown during the COVID pandemic as many people feel their emotions have really been through the mill.
This is a workshop for you if…
- you already use essences, but would like to know more about them
- you would like to find a natural remedy for anxiety, sleep issues, grief, confidence, creativity, sadness
- you are looking for gentle emotional support
- you have children or animals that would benefit from emotional support
- you have a general interest in complementary therapies
- you are overwhelmed by the choice available
- you are willing to invest in your own health and that of your family
I will be running the workshop on Saturday 27 March, 2.00-4.00pm UK time over Zoom.
Booking is necessary by Friday 26 March as numbers will be restricted.
Workshop fee is £27, with an optional extra to order essences to be posted out (£17) or a 20 minute private consultation and essences (£30).
I will be covering…
- History and development of essences
- How essences are made
- How essences can help
- Overview of Australian Bush Flower Essences, Alaskan Essences, Indigo Essences
- How to choose the right essence
- Where to buy essences
Flower remedies have been used for thousands of years, long before Dr Bach first discovered the properties of his 38 remedies. Aboriginal people in Australia dug pits, filled them with flowers and had the sick or troubled lie amongst the petals. In the sixteenth century, Swiss physician Paracelsus collected early morning dew from flowers to use as medicine.
Modern remedies are easily available in a bottle and can make a big difference to how you are feeling.
Whether you are feeling worried, sad, angry, distressed or lacking in confidence, having trouble focusing, having difficulty sleeping, there is an essence that can help you to cope better with what you are going through. Coming along to the workshop will give you a better idea of what is available and where you can get it. And of course there is always the option of working with me privately if that seems the best option for you.
