Hi, I’m Ashleigh!
A Flower Essence Practitioner and Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I have been working online and in-person since 2013. Through flower essences and individualized nutrition, I support the health and well-being of people, pets and plants.
I believe plants provide plant wisdom, or plant intelligence, and they’re happy to share these offerings when we’re open to receiving them. Part of this is revealed through the inner work of discovering who we are and what we came here to do.
I can tell you the very moment I first learned of the term “flower essences”. But little did I know then how profoundly these seemingly simple solutions would improve my life, my family’s life, my clients’ lives, and the lives of others around us.
I was 25 years old and trying my best to get comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable chair in my dad’s doctor’s office. The doctor’s office shared a parking lot with a strip mall featuring a discount clothing retailer and a fast-food pizza place. An unlikely place to discover these all-natural essences, if ever there was one!
I was in that office awaiting my dad’s likely diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Caring for him in his last years would prove to be one of the greatest challenges (and growth experiences) of my life.
But in that moment, I also received a precious gift: a list of holistic therapies that might offer support, though obviously no cures, for memory loss. On that list were nutrients like choline and essential fatty acids. The surprise was something called flower essences.
There was a lot to cover that day and it was overwhelming. Anyone who has ever faced a terminal diagnosis for themselves or a family member might agree. I didn’t receive any details about flower essences that day. But my curiosity combined with a doggedness to help my dad in any way I could led me to uncover and learn to use these mighty essences.
My first experience with using flower essences was with Bach’s Rescue Remedy. I needed a lot of it as a young caregiver! And so began my journey with these simple, but sophisticated, tools for mind-body-spirit wellness…
I consider that introduction to have been divinely inspired in a way. Today, it is still rare to meet a Western doctor who would recommend vibrational remedies like flower essences.
I was blessed to have found an “old school” doctor who was more open and educated about un-orthodox options. He has since retired, but I’ll forever be grateful to him for his kind care and that humble list offering an irreplaceable kind of support.
I believe that everything that affects our mind also affects our bodies, in some capacity, shape, or form.
I have used flower essences ever since, both personally and professionally. I have studied, and continue to study, different flower essence systems in-depth. I have also completed advanced training.
I maintain an apothecary of over 300 essences from across North America, Europe, and beyond. My goal is always to create effective formulas for you and your family—and that includes our furry felines and pooches!
