Natural Emotional Support for the Everyday Challenges of Modern Day Living

Flower essences are food for the soul and are an easy and safe to use. They are a simple way to relieve stress and offer emotional support for all the family including your pets.

They transform negative feelings and offer emotional support in times of stress and worry. When stress free you are able to enjoy positive and happy relationships with friends, family, colleagues and with life in general.

Flower essences have been used by indigenous cultures, including Maori, for centuries and more recently made popular by the physician and homeopath Dr Edward Bach in the early 1930s. The First Light® range of essences has been created for the living conditions of the 21st century which are often considerably more stressful as we juggle the many diverse aspects of daily life.

First Light® flower essences are made from the pristine flowers, plants, ferns and trees from New Zealandʼs native forests and are safe to take along side medication and other supplements you might be taking. Your essences are supplied in a dropper bottle and a few drops are taken each day under your tongue or added to your water bottle.

Consultations - Creating a Personalised Remedy

A consultation enables a personalised blend or ʻhealing bouquetʼ to be formulated to support your individual needs on all levels of the being to bring you into harmony and balance.

During the consultation you are able to discuss the issues, worries or concerns that are currently experiencing - be it on an emotional, physical, mental or spiritual level.

You may want to make changes in your life, be it with relationships, career, home life, finances etc. and these areas can be addressed during the consultation.

Each individual blend is created which you take orally for a month. For issues or conditions that have been present for a lengthy period we would consider you taking a blend of essences for a longer period of time. 

It is recommended that initially a blend is taken for a two month period - two 25ml bottles and then reviewed.

"...Emotionally I feel a lot calmer and I am sleeping well .... you targeted what I needed with great accuracy..... I am so grateful to you........" Gill Gibbons

"For the past four years I have been enjoying the benefits of First Light Flowers Essence Blends from Tessa Jonassen. FLFE has given me subtle guidance in a positive direction which has built over time. Sometimes it is not until I face a situation that in my past would of sent me into a 'tail spin' - but which now I stay in control, that I realise the support that FLFE has and continues to give me. Tessa if very intuitive and helped me articulate what has been holding me back or perhaps causing inner turmoil and then devises a blend to support you as you move on to where you next want to be." Penny

"My son was becoming unfocused, overwhelmed and edgy before critical senior exams. The FLFE blend got him back to a place of self control and knowing what he needed to do. Although he had maintained great study habits throughout the year he could have blown his chance by not getting himself together for the exams - he did go on to do very well. Thanks TJ"

"The essences got me on the creative path I believe....well I've always been creative but I lost my way and I feel that the essences reached out to me with their stems, branches, and long grasses and whispered me back on the right path!!" Stephanie Hamilton - Dubai
