Who is Flower Abundance

My introduction to flower essences dates back to the late 1970s. I used essences sporadically for fifteen years, usually for support in coping with daily stress. In 1993 I began working with them more extensively. With regular use, attending workshops and conferences, and studying, I was eventually led to starting my own practice in 1997. In 1999 I received my Flower Essence certification from Delta Gardens. I have the heart-felt satisfaction of knowing I have found my true calling.

About Flower Abundance

Flower Abundance

For free expression.

In my practice, I work with over fifteen hundred essences encompassing the healing qualities of flowers from Australia, Scotland, Alaska, California, Arizona, Canada, and New England. This abundant collection allows me to fine-tune oral solutions by addressing the individual nuances each person presents. I use kinesiology to ascertain, which essences are most appropriate for my clients.

How do I use kinesiology?

Kinesiology is an excellent tool to help prioritize the issues. This oral solution, which contains several different essences, is taken for three to four weeks. Some clients report immediate benefits while others experience a more gradual awakening and awareness of themselves, bringing clarity to deeper issues.

There are many different ways to work with flower essences. One of my specialties is treating the emotional component underlying physical ailments. I have certainly seen in my own life how quickly "emotions run amuck" can lead to various physical ailments. I believe that many physical conditions have at their roots untreated emotional or spiritual issues. I enjoy working as one member of a team of health care providers with a client to address the whole person. By using flower essences in conjunction with other healing therapies, whether traditional allopathic or complementary, you can support and enhance your healing process.

Many clients also enjoy a personalized room spray. These sprays usually include an essential oil along with the tested essences. They can be made to support the work of a client's oral solution, to clear the energy of a room, or for general stress relief.

In addition, I test for personal emergency trauma solutions or ETS. We expect everyone's electrical system to respond differently to a crisis. Keeping a personalized ETS on hand, to take when life throws its unexpected punches, assures you of being stabilized to cope in whatever way the emergency situation requires.

The Essence

The written word does not do justice to the essences. Describing how one feels taking flower essences is as difficult as describing a moving piece of music. How do you convey on paper what comes over you when you are filled and surrounded by beautiful music? It needs to be experienced. Flower essences engage the heart.

Why Use Flower Essence Therapy

Flower essences build bridges between the body and the soul. Illness, fatigue, depression, addictions, and stress are some of the indications of a weak body/soul link. By focusing on strengthening the weak links with flower essences, we can bring the body and soul back into harmony.

Benefits of Flower Essence Therapy

Flower essences balance, stabilize, and repair the body's electrical system. The human electrical system is vast, and much of it is beyond scientific comprehension. What we do know is that every organ, cell, and aspect of our being is interrelated and activated through this network. As we begin to fathom the effect of essences on this amazing system, we see the value of flower essences as playing an important role in the growing field of complementary health care.

Flower essences are a perfect example of horizontal healing, or "like healing like." The electrical pattern of the flower petals is released into the water; water holds and conducts electricity; and the resulting flower essence water is used to balance, stabilize, and repair the body's electrical system, like healing like.

Flower Abundance

The gift of flower essences is two-fold. First, the essence selection process helps identify the most pressing issues. These issues can be emotional, mental, or spiritual qualities that need to be developed or awakened. Second, the essences offer an energetic "helping hand" to accomplish this work. It is becoming more widely recognized how these untreated issues can affect our health in the long run and our ability to heal in the present.

“Barbara Parker has mastered a very special process as a flower essence practitioner-that is being a pure living channel for the invisible consciousness that guides her in this work. I have watched her skill and courage develop to be one of this generation’s true pioneers in applications of flower essences to heal both physical imbalances and the troubled human soul.”

David Dalton

Delta Gardens Certified Teacher of Essence Practitioners

“Barb's flower essences have made a real difference in my practice, both for myself and my patients. We are able to experience a higher level of health.”

Dr. Mary Balliett

Ithaca, NY

“Very shortly after I began working with Barbara's flower essences, I decided to get a little bottle for my husband as well. After she tested his essences and read me the descriptions of each, I told her I did not really think that any of the essences she had described came even remotely close to describing him. Since I felt like her formula was completely off, I chose not to order it for him. I even shared her description with a close friend (who is also a client of Barbara's) and she agreed that it was completely inaccurate. Later that week I had a conversation with my husband and was blown away to hear that he was grappling with the very issues that Barbara had described to me during our session. I will not make the mistake of doubting her formula again!”


Bloomington, IN

“When I see Barb for essences, whatever she does tends to make the challenging aspects of life smoother. She uses her insights and her knowledge of flower essences and life to help people out. I send my friends and clients to Barb when I feel they need the sort of boost that her essences can provide.”


Ithaca, NY, Lic. Ac., C.S.W.

“Every time I am baffled by my current manifestation of 'sacred contract' I head over to Barb and her team. Ahhh, relief, spelled FLOWER ABUNDANCE."


Trumansburg, NY

"I highly recommend Barbara Parker as a flower essence practitioner. She is a clear and loving presence who is deeply skilled in what she does. Her flower essence combinations are gentle yet powerfully effective in their laser-like precision. As a flower essence practitioner myself, Barbara is the person I turn to when I need the clarity and guidance of someone else to see me through difficult situations or transitions."


Medford, MA, CFEP

"At the foundation of Barb's practice lies a willingness to deeply investigate any issue with outstanding thoroughness while always being open to new directions. As she continually explores the permutations of her own spiritual history with the aid of flower essences, Barb brings this expansive awareness to her work. She meets the complexity of the human spirit with grace, integrity, possibility and a profound trust. Most of all Barb meets you with a deep generosity of spirit and a genuine desire to assist in your personal journey, whatever it takes."
