Name

The Healingherbs essences are made by Julian Barnard, who is considered among the world's leading experts on the flower essences of Dr. Bach, having studied their effects in clinical practice for three decades. For several years Julian worked closely with Nickie Murray, former director of the Bach Centre. From Nickie, Julian learned the methods of flower identification and preparation given to her by Nora Weeks, Dr. Bach’s devoted assistant.

Prepared by hand with love and care in rural Herefordshire, the Healingherbs English Flower Essences are valued world-wide for their remarkable quality and potency.
