Welcome to the Flower Remedies online course.

The aim of this online course is to develop your knowledge, skills and understanding of flower essence theory and relate it to use on clients in a safe manner. The study of flower essences is a therapy that is not based on modern scientific practices. However, it is a subject of some complexity and its adherents require a qualification that regularises data within a framework that is insurable. It is important that you have checked your insurers requirements, prior to enrolling on this course, as advised on the course information page, prior to the booking page.

This course provides the foundations for this particular skill to be applied and thus is the primary building block for a potential lifetime of study in this subject. This course is generic and not intended for any one range of flower essence products exclusively. You should be aware of the various flower essences available and be able to use them with clients. Case studies on a varied range of clients should be utilised in the course of gaining evidence for the qualification.

Throughout some of the modules, you will come across this image, where it will ask you to complete a task.

This is a good practice task to get your business working in an optimal professional way! You do not need to send it to us, but are there to give you some tips and ways to improve on your working practices and to prepare you for completing your case studies.
