Formulas for Humanitarian Relief
No matter where we live, we surely feel compassion and concern for all those affected by any type of catastrophic event.
As healers, it is in our hearts to want to help. While devastation during such times is physical, it is also deeply searing to the soul. Many flower essences — alone or in formulas — are immensely beneficial in helping to deal with pain, stress, grief, despair, depression and hopelessness.
Our planet and her peoples are facing many birth pangs in this New Millennium. Please save this list for reference, as we are sure that it will be helpful to you in your healing work wherever you live. We also look forward to your reports and research regarding flower essence therapy and humanitarian relief work — this is an enormously important way we can all help each other serve and give at the highest level.
