The Secret Power of Flowers

The use of flowers as medicine dates back over 3000 years to the ancient Egyptians.  The first distillation of essential oils occurred in Egypt around 3500 B.C.  A major portion of the practice of aromatherapy is attributed to their culture.   Hildegard von Bingham, a Benedictine abbess from 11th century, would wrap muslin cloth around flowers, collecting the dew to use on patients.  Australian aborigines drink flower water for their healing properties, and many cultures around the world bath in flower water to restore balance in the body.  In the 19h century, Dr. Edward Bach created the famous Bach Flower Remedy.  In the 1980s Ian Bush created the Australian Bush Flower Essences that have been used in therapy for the Chernobyl Children’s project with astonishing results.  Today we are going to talk about how flowers can help your skin.
