Flower Therapy, Flower Essences: Blossom, Heal Thyself

Blossom Water is not a medicinal drink, but it definitely makes you feel better. Grab a bottle. You’ll find that just one twist of the wrist releases a tasty beverage that is not only thirst quenching, but aromatically pleasing. Feeling better already? It’s the flowers.

The feel-good factor of Blossom Water is derived in part from flower essences. Think of it as flower therapy for your taste buds.

We have all have experienced flower therapy: any special occasion, from sorrow to celebration, warrants the therapeutic use of flowers. Imagine a wedding, a funeral, Mother’s Day, or a graduation without flowers. It is not easy to do. We bring flowers – to the romantic dinner table, to Mom, to the hospital bed. We bring flowers for their aesthetics and for their healing properties.

From Ancient China and Egypt to Druids to Aboriginals to Dr. Bach, flower essences have had a prominent role in our health and wellness. “The Ancient Egyptians believed that the spirit or essence of the flower contained magical healing powers given by the deities and that their fragrances came from the gods so mortals might become more perfect by absorbing the scent.” (http://cassandraeason.com)

Philosopher, healer, and mystic, Saint Hildegard von Bingen (1098–1179) was famous for using music and flowers to heal. Paracelsus (1493–1541), the Renaissance physician, botanist, alchemist, and astrologer, who founded the discipline of toxicology, used the dew collected from flowers to heal sickness and emotional disharmony.

Today at Blossom Water, we do not claim any magical healing powers given by the deities, nor do we collect dew. But we do think you’ll agree that the taste and aroma of our enhanced waters are just divine!
