Summary: The gentle and wise guidance of the flowers, as Bach unveiled them, are here to help us find balance and enhance well-being. This charming and beautiful deck can be used as an inspiring oracle deck to find answers to troubling questions or as a tool for learning about flower essences.
A valuable inclusion with this deck is the short biography of Edward Bach. After reading it youe can decide to pursue a more lengthy biography or be content with this information. Some things you'll learn include:
In 1919, Bach, an experienced medical man, learned of homeopathy and the ideas of Samuel Haknemann. He was struck by the similarities between homeopathy and the conclusions he had drawn based on his own experiences in his medical practice. He continued research, incorporating the affects of mood and diet, leading him to an extremely holistic approach to not merely medicine or treatment of ills, but of well-being in general.
From the book:
The deck presented here has 38 cards representing the healers, the helpers, and the assistants. Three ways given for usage. The first is to select three cards through a lengthy process of looking at the images and separating them into piles until you have eliminated all but three. The second method is to draw a card randomly. The third method is to use the cards as flash cards in order to learn the essences and their effects.
The art is undeniably charming and very suitable for the subject and time period. If you like oracles, are interested in or knowledgeable of Bach Flower Essences, and agree that the art is pleasing, then this deck would be a perfect match.
For the person willing to put in a little effort, this oracle could certainly provide wise and gentle guidance for general or specific life questions, leading the user toward healing and growth…and of course over all well-being.
