Flower essences, first brought to the world by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s, offer gentle and effective support to bring balance to our emotional states.

The benefits in mind, body, and spirit – such as clarity of mind & release of tension – can be profound. We are humbled and honored to offer flower essences prepared in the tradition of Dr. Bach, with love & prayer.

Our signature line of Flower Essences are preserved in 80 proof organic brandy, and are divided into two collections:

Sage Mountain Flower Essence Series is a limited edition collection of Flower Essences prepared at Rosemary Gladstar's Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat Center in Vermont by Orenda Herbal's co-founder, herbalist Emily Ruff.  These Flower Essences were infused using the traditional Bach method of preparation under the high noon sun of a Full Moon lunation

Florida Flower Essence Series brings the healing properties of the tropics and subtropics to this unique modality, prepared with flowers from our own biodynamic gardens in Central Florida in accordance with lunar cycles.

What are Flower Essences, & how do I use them? {from Flower Essence Services}

Flower essences are 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, with new remedies from other plant species now available.  

To use flower essences, choose an issue you are dealing with in your life – relationships, self image, stress level, career matters, or simply general well-being.  Then select a few flower essences which most precisely describe your current situation, using the list of qualities linked below. It is best to work with no more than five to seven essences at a time, so that you can focus clearly on the main issues. 
Flower essences may be taken directly from the stock bottle, or may be diluted into a dosage bottle.  Flower essences are taken four drops at a time, a minimum of four times a day or as often as needed.  We recommend working with an essence for a period of one month to truly experience its benefits.
