Student Testimonies


Phenomenal! This course has been a truly enlightening experience. This class was masterfully
put together, well laid out, easy to follow and very engaging. I found it both thought- and soul-
Thank you so much for such a wonderful course, I am truly grateful as it has changed my life.
– C.B


From the beginning, how do flower essences work made me understand how these transform
emotions. I learned how to prepare flower essences, dosages, and how to use them in different
preparations. There are many benefits in using Dr. Bach’s system, the seven groups. In
addition, learning more about the FES flowers enhanced my knowledge in working with a range
of emotions, feelings, and behaviors.


One of my favorite modules was the one on ethics. Importance to make the client feel confident
about you as a person. As practitioners, we must provide a confidential environment for the
consultation. We must be respectful of others and set boundaries in our relationship with
clients. Not everyone will be open to a person to discuss their life stories. Always thank them
for sharing with you their emotions, problems, and experiences in life.


Lorrie Hargis explained everything thoroughly and professionally, covering all aspects of the
Flower Essences Course as she promised. I treasure the value of her knowledge, providing
support and answers to all our questions.
