Flower Essences were first prepared in England in the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach. After Bach's death in 1936 the torch was passed first to his devoted assistant, Nora Weeks and then to Nickie Murray. In 1988 Julian Barnard, who learned the preparation of Dr. Bach's remedies from Nickie Murray, began his own separate company, Healingherbs, to prepare flower remedies following the traditional methods of Dr. Bach. Since 1991 Flower Essence Services has been proud to be the North American distributor of Julian Barnard's Healingherbs flower essences. Our research in collaboration with thousands of practitioners around the world confirms that the Healingherbs flower remedies have the same potency, efficacy and vibrancy as those originally developed by Dr. Edward Bach.
