Jewels and Gems are stockists of Californian Flower Essences (FES) in New Zealand. We also stock the "Healing Herbs" range of flower essences, which are Bach flowers under a different name.
These are hand-harvested from wild areas, by a small ethical company in England with close links to Dr. Bach. The product "Bach Flowers" is now owned by a large pharmaceutical company.
Flourish formulas are mixtures of several flower essences and pure essential oils, for common health conditions. They have been created by Richard Katz and Patricia Kaminsky.
We also sell various pamphlets and practitioner books about the Californian and Healing Herb flower essences.
The Range of Light kit consists of 48 extraordinary flower essences. They are prepared throughout the bio-region of the Sierra Nevada Range of Light, USA.
The FES Quintessentials flower essences are liquid potentized extracts derived from flowers grown in the Biodynamic gardens at Terra Flora, or pristine wildflower habitats.

Flower essences are herbal infusions or decoctions, made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. The first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930's, although new remedies from other plant species are now available.
They are typically taken orally from a dropper bottle; the standard dosage is four drops four times daily. You can take the drops directly from stock bottles available in stores; mix them in a glass of water; or make a dosage bottle by mixing several drops with water and brandy (typically 1/4 ounce) in a one ounce dropper bottle.
