Australian Bush Flower Essences

5 Mar


Hi, I’m Alisha, a SAHM to 2 beautiful little poppets (currently a 2 and 1 yr old) and I’ve also been a naturopath now for 11 years.  I love to help people achieve mental and physical balance using the Australian Bush Flower Essences.

My favourite way of treating you is with a personal blend, this requires you answering some questions via an e-mail I send you and based on those answers, I pick between 7-9 individual essences from over 70 different ones in the range which go together to make you a very specific blend for YOUR issues.

How Do They Work?

In a nutshell, the essences provide energetic release of stored issues that may be blocking you from achieving emotional and physical balance.

The body is always trying to reach a state of balance but due to living life with all it’s stresses and busyness, we sometimes carry the road blocks that prevent us from getting where we want to go.

Once the emotion or memory has been released from the subconscious, the physical issue that came about from this emotion has the freedom to go back into balance.

That’s why I call my blends balance in a bottle! You can have them made specifically for YOUR physical and/or emotional imbalance x


The following are a list of blends and what they are generally used for:

EMERGENCY ESSENCE, most popular essence in the range, similar to the english ‘rescue remedy’.  Great for or anyone who is dealing with stress, anxiety, trauma, grief, physical or emotional shock, nervous exhaustion or just not coping very well. Very popular with mums and bubs as it can help with labour, teething, and night time sleeping problems. It will calm upset, overtired and stressed out bubs and kiddies and get them off to sleep quickly. It can even be used topically to help injured tissue, it’s a must for every household!

Negative Condition:
• Panic
• Distress
• Fear

Positive Outcome:
• Ability to cope
• Comfort, reassurance and courage

CALM AND CLEAR ESSENCE, great for hyperactivity in kids and especially good for all mothers! Can help turn off those racing and worried thoughts that cycle around the brain. Used very effectively in ADD/ADHD behavioural conditions.

Negative Condition:
• Always over committed
• No time for self
• Impatience
• Rushing
• Worry
• Mind chatter
• Can’t sleep
• Irritability
• Impatience.

Positive Outcome:
• Encourages own time and space to wind down
• Relax and have fun
• Clarity, calmness and peace

WOMAN ESSENCE, excellent if hormones are still a bit all over the place from pregnancy or for pre-menstrual and menopausal symptoms.

Negative Condition:
• Mood swings
• Weary
• Physical dislike

Positive Outcome:
• Female life cycle balance
• Restores emotional balance
• Coping with change

ABUND ESSENCE , good essence to take when wanting to manifest better outcomes and trust in the universe that good things are coming and you are deserving of them!

Negative Condition:
• Pessimistic
• Closed to receiving
• Fear of lack
• Poverty consciousness

Positive Outcome:
• Joyful sharing
• Belief in abundance
• Clears financial sabotage patterns

ADOL ESSENCE, fantastic for the adolescence years (yes, teenagers can be fun!) This blend can be used for pre-teens as well as often they are displaying a lot of these traits too…

Negative Condition:
• Feeling of hopelessness
• Insensitive
• Sense of not belonging
• “It’s not fair” attitude
• Rebellious
• Anger

Positive Outcome:
• Coping with change
• Consideration of others
• Enhances communication
• Self Esteem

COGNIS ESSENCE, if baby brain is still a problem and work is being affected I highly recommend this one! Also great for study, upcoming exams or work projects that need a lot of mental focus and concentration.  Since becoming a blogger, I have nicknamed this one ‘Bloggers Blend’ Before I sit down to type, write or edit -I take this and it help centre my focus incredibly.

Negative Condition:
• Daydreaming
• Confusion
• Overwhelm

Positive Outcome:
• Assimilates ideas
• Clarity and focus
• Enhances all learning abilities and skills

CONFID ESSENCE, great for public speaking and building self esteem and self confidence issues.

Negative Condition:
• Low Self Esteem
• Guilt
• Shyness
• Lack of Conviction
• Victim Mentality

Positive Outcome:
• Taking responsibility for one’s life
• Integrity
• Confidence
• Personal power
• True to one’s self

DYNAMIS ESSENCE, great for getting back to old routines especially getting motivated for exercise.  I recommend this one when starting new regimes and also for when it’s starting to become harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning.  This one really helps with renewal of energy and enthusiasm for life.

Negative Condition:
• Temporary loss of drive, enthusiasm and excitement

Positive Outcome:
• Renews passion and enthusiasm for life
• Centres and harmonises one’s vital forces

PURIFYING ESSENCE , used when detoxing from addictive substances and food and after ending unhealthy relationships. Great for using when doing a detox of any sort whether emotional or physical (which are one and the same).

Negative Condition:
• Emotional waste
• Feeling encumbered
• Emotional baggage

Positive Outcome:
• Sense of release and relief
• Spring cleaned

RELATIONSHIP ESSENCE, fantastic for any parent-child bonding issues or problems with your partner or family members. Helps you deal with consequences and feelings arising from fall outs and broken relationship with family and partner.

Negative Condition:
• Emotion pain and turmoil
• Confusion
• Resentment
• Blocked, held in emotions
• Inability to relate

Positive Outcome:
• Expressing feelings
• Enhanced communication
• Forgiveness
• Breaks negative family conditioning
• Renews interest
• Enhances parental-child bonding

TRAVEL ESSENCE, for trips on planes, trains and automobiles! Good for combatting jet lag and hydration on long journeys as well as prepare you for the change in routine and circumstance involved in travel.

Negative Condition:
• Disorientation
• Personally depleted and drained
• Emotional effects of travel

Positive Outcome:
• Refreshes
• Centres
• Maintains sense of personal space


Mama Mojo Drops  – $30

For women, our libido is mostly determined by how we feel about ourselves.  This changes constantly over the years due to having babies, changes in our bodies, lack of time for self care and plain old exhaustion and lack of sleep. This blend is to nurture the woman’s sexuality by building confidence, self esteem and appreciation and love of her physical form.  It also contains essences to let go of expectations and inhibitions that can sometimes mar the sexual experience as well as essences for balancing the reproductive hormones. There is also an essence for energy in there!
Sometimes lack of enjoyment of sex or low libido is due to emotional issues that have been instilled from past events or from what is currently going on in a person’s life.  For this, I recommend a tailor made blend as it is amazing what can change when we lift those very individual and personal blocks.
Green Essence – $15
This is an essence that I tend to prescribe to be taken on it’s own once daily.
I would prescribe it alongside a personal blend for anyone suffering from candida or any type of fungal overgrowth.

What’s in them?

Australian Bush Flower Essence (25ml) – Ingredients: essences of Australian Bush Flowers, purified water and small amount of alcohol as a preservative

How are they Taken?

They are generally taken orally (7 drops under the tongue or added to drink for adults and older children) or 7 drops straight into bubs mouth. An alternative way to use them for bubs and kiddies who don’t like it in their mouths is adding 7 drops to their water, formula, expressed breast milk, food, their creams and lotions (can be absorbed via the skin) and even in their bath water. They can be taken morning and night (good spot for them is your bedside table and use them on rising and just before sleep) and they can be used as often as needed in acute situations like labour, teething, panic and/or anxiety attacks and very distressed little bubs. You can not overdose on these so that’s another plus.

How Much Do They Cost?

The cost of the Ready Made blends are $15 each. Personal formula’s are $60 each.

I make personal essences up for you if you are needing something specific or there is not a blend that suits you, this is often a lot more affective and unblocking your specific issues and includes e-mail consultation as well as your tailor- made blend. Sometimes I will also advise you receiving a ready made blend like Emergency Essence to take when needed whilst on your personal blend but whether you decide to include that in your order is entirely up to you.  I know once I have received your answers to the questions whether this is something I would recommend for you.

The personal blend lasts for roughly 2-3 weeks and can often be needed just the once.  The way to tell if you need a repeat blend ($40) is if you start to feel different once you have finished the bottle.  If you feel the same as you did in the days after finishing your drops, the blend has done it’s job for what we were trying to achieve.  If you start noticing the old feelings or emotions surfacing in the first couple of days after finishing your blend, I advise another bottle.


To order, simply go to the SHOP section of my site and there are categories for Personal blends, Ready made blends and also the LOVE SYSTEM skin care range which also contains these amazing essences.

Yours in Health,
Alisha x

    Hi Alisha,

    Just wanted to let you know how AMAZING my blend is proving for me…I’ve started doing a reiki meditation again every night (1st time I’ve done any sort of practice in 5 years!), I’m plugging along, putting my business out there & not stressing the outcomes, I’ve decided to try giving up sugar & seeing how I feel health-wise, I’ve been having out-there dreams at night, resolving some stuff I think, I’ve reached out to another woman on-line about my miscarriage and I’m contemplating writing my baby-girl’s story for my blog. Incredible!!! Can’t wait to see how life keeps evolving as I keep taking it! Thanks so much, Shell.

    Hi Alisha

    Could you let me know what vapouriser you recommend? I know you posted it on one of your last blogs but i can’t seem to find it.

    Hi. I have tested my ph levels and they are consistently at 6.9 first thing in mornings. What do you suggest to correct this? Have been told if your ph is out of whack your whole system is too??

    • Naughty Naturopath Mum September 9, 2013 at 8:11 am #

      Maybe research alkaline foods and increase these in your diet along with some liquid chlorophyll available from healthfood stores. Cutting out the acidic forming foods and squeezing fresh lemon in your water also helps. Good luck 🙂

    • Fiona Jonson September 9, 2013 at 8:52 am #

      Hi, I was wondering how do you check your ph levels? I am a very acidic person at the best of times and would love to be able to keep it in check… Cheers Fiona.

      • Naughty Naturopath Mum September 9, 2013 at 9:22 am #

        You by ph strips from the chemist or healthfood store and teat your saliva first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything

      • Fiona Jonson September 9, 2013 at 11:47 am #

        Thank you, I have just rung my local chemist and they don’t have any and have asked what brand as they will endeavour to get some in. We don’t have a healthstore here, live in a little town way out west.

        Cheers Fiona.
