Back to School


I have created a ‘Back to School’ flower essence blend to support kids who may be finding the transition back to school challenging and to support all children and young people to have a positive relationship with school. The blend has been created to promote enthusiasm, confidence, self-worth, adaptability, emotional independence, co-operation, personal achievement, participation and belief in one’s self.

The ‘Back to School’ flower essence blend comes in a 25ml treatment bottle (one months supply) available to purchase for $25. The keynote flower essence for your child can also be added to this flower essence blend. If you would like the ‘Back to School’ flower essence blend for more than one child you can purchase an economical 50ml, 100ml or 200ml treatment bottle instead of purchasing individual treatment bottles for each child (add $3.00 for each extra child). I recommend you give your child 2-4 drops each morning, after school and at bedtime. You can also add 4-8 drops in your child’s water bottle so they can benefit from the blend during the day and have access to the flower essences while they are at school. To order a bottle of the Back To School flower essence blend please fill out this form.

If you would like a personalised blend for your child I am available for in-clinic consultations or by phone, email and skype and offer special discounts for children and young people (under 18).

Up to 60 minutes, includes one 25ml treatment bottle (one months supply)
