Flower Essence Repertory
By Patricia Kaminski, The Repertory is actually three books in one:
1) An overview of Flower essence theory and practice
2) A listing of essences and their qualities arranged by a wide range of categories
3) Profiles of the 142 English and North American Flower Essences.
Three-quarters of the book's pages is arranged in two indexes. The first index lists the "soul issues," organizing the various elements a person desires to eliminate (addictions, aging, insomnia, nervousness, etc.) or enhance (patience, courage, open heart, protection, etc.) within their beings. Essences addressing these issues are suggested for each "soul issue" with a brief annotation.
In the second index, individual flowers are categorized alphabetically. Positive-qualities / patterns-of-imbalance that the individual essences replenish/repair are given for each flower.
The Repertory has received praised from experienced practitioners as well as beginning students of flower essence therapy, as the clearest, more informative guide to flower essence selection and use.
