Amy Cohen first realized the power of flower essences in 2004, when she was going through a hard time in her life. “My father had gotten sick and I had to take care of him,” says Amy. “It was hugely traumatic. I called up my doctor, a believer in alternative medicine, and she sent me flower essence.” Amy was skeptical at first, but the essence actually started working. “The next thing I knew, I was making decisions for my father, and felt that I was in total control.”
Amy wanted to bring others the same relief she felt from flower essences, so she set out to learn everything she could about how they worked. “Each botanical extract has an emotional purpose for healing,” Amy explains. “So, from a flower, a remedy is made–a botanical extract that you add to water.” In 2005, Amy enrolled in the NY School of Homeopathy, which offers the only four-year program of this particular study of alternative medicine. She traveled to Mount Vernon, England, that same year, and earned her level 3 practitioner certification from the prestigious Bach Centre, founded by Dr. Edward Bach, one of the first doctors to study the benefits of flower remedies in the 1930s. Recently, she became a certified teacher of Australian Bush Flower Essences while studying in Australia.
Starting in 2006, Amy treated patients in her home, using her expertise to create unique flower essence blends. “I’ve worked with many many children with autism and helped many women through menopause,” says Amy. “That’s how dynamic making a customized blend can be.”
This year, Amy launched her line of homemade soaps made out of the flower essences she’s studied for years, aptly called “Hope In a Soap.” Her soaps come in six different “attitudes,” from “Chill Out!” for those who need some help taking it easy, to “Out-Rage!” for anyone who feels like they’re on edge. She’s already received a ton of positive feedback from her clients.
“The customized blends I make truly change the people I treat,” says Amy. “Through the use of flower remedies, they move back into balance, lose their fears, and create their success.”
