Visualise a world where vibrational essences are fully available to all and where all people have the possibility to treat themselves and those they love with this gentle yet profound healing. This is my vision and my passion in supporting YOU to become a specialist in the healing powers of Flower and Vibrational Essences AND build a unique and heart centred healing practice to share your gifts with others.

Is this YOUR year to join us?

Our Diploma IS a professional qualification but first and foremost, it is a profound and life-changing journey.

This Diploma and Transformational Journey brings together the very best of my own learning over the past 30 years – weaving together experience of the vast healing properties of many diverse flower essence ranges with the unique and universal language of flowers – colour, shapes, signatures and much more.

During this Diploma you will learn about modern flower essences and also the wonderful legacy left by Dr Edward Bach and his 38 English flower essences. You will experience a wide range of essences by producers from different continents – essences from around the world that have varying vibrations and healing qualities. Flower essences taken internally offer wonderful healing benefits yet I have discovered from my own experience and that of my clients that when flower essences are applied to the skin as well as taken internally, we feel more alive and more connected to our true selves faster and with much less resistance. So you will also be learning about topical application of flower essences and as a qualified Floral Acupuncture Practitioner I will be sharing with you the invaluable modality of Floral Acupuncture.

By studying the modules, listening to the video and audio interviews sent to you each month, where I interview the top flower essence producers featured in this Diploma and by using the essences sent to you each month both internally and topically, you will learn to feel the “essence” of each range and therefore their potential for you.

As you journey through this Diploma, you will learn what vibrations suit your own constitution and as a result will be able to choose essences that resonate deeply within you. Each participant’s journey will be unique yet also rich in experience and healing.

Participating in this Diploma and really experiencing the profound healing powers of the nature kingdom is a first stepping stone in developing an inner knowing of who you, transcending any life challenges and stepping into your own power. Building a successful and thriving practice is also a key component – so your materials also support a creation of a practice so that allows you to share your gifts immediately in a way that nourishes and nurtures you and your clients.

My aim is to support you as you make this journey so that you emerge not only with a professional qualification, the ability to guide clients and loved ones with their own healing and create a successful healing practice but most importantly as a wiser, more confident YOU – more in touch with your heart’s desires and knowing the path to YOUR true potential.

Is This You?

  • You are a complementary therapist, healer or coach who wishes to add flower and vibrational essences to your practice

  • You have a deep love of the nature kingdom and feel called to become an expert in her healing gifts and become an ambassador and bridge for reintroducing this gentle yet profound modality back into our world

  • You are ready to experience a personal profound and life-changing journey that you can pass onto your clients

  • You wish to add a new level of depth to your personal and professional life – enabling yourself and your clients to move beyond old patterns, old beliefs and to become the empowered being that you truly are

  • You want to become an expert in the use of internal and topical flower essences and learn to use multiple ranges of essences from around the world

  • You want to be part of a community of like-minded, heart-centered people who are taking the journey alongside you

  • You want an online course, allowing you to study in the comfort of your own home and at times convenient to you yet that also offers personal guidance and support

  • You want your healing practice/business to reach many people and to nourish you on all levels – including earning you a comfortable living

  • You are ready to resolve your own life challenges and to emerge from this Diploma as an empowered and gifted healer

  • You feel excited at the prospect of learning at a deep level and have the courage to face all that has held you back in your life so far


Today I look and feel totally different to when I first began this journey. On my journey to wholeness, I have experienced many different complementary modalities and all of them helped enormously. The one that began my journey and that opened my heart to the truth of who I am was flower medicine. And this is the way I now lead my life. I am grateful for the level of peace and happiness I feel today – so much of this is down to my work with essences and the devic kingdom and how they have taught me to embrace who I am, forgive the past and look to the future. I share my life with my soul partner Ian and our two cats and we live in a beautiful home in South West France. Our lives are content and we feel a sense of fulfilment with our lives and an ever growing sense of who we are and why we are here.

I invite you to take this journey towards reclaiming your own inner voice and creating the life and healing practice you were born to lead and share…..the journey is life changing and profoundly beautiful.

  • Why learn about different ranges of essences?

The experiencing of different vibrations of flower essences of varying colours, shapes and that grow in climates very different from your own is a way of fine-tuning the self to feel and attune with vibrations that are resonant with the Self. By learning to do this for yourself, you will then be able to do this for others. Working with the major international ranges of essences also helps you – as a practitioner – develop an extensive repertoire of knowledge.

The qualification is not dependent on any one range of essences. It is intended that on graduating from this course, you will have broad experience of many different types of essences/vibrations and therefore of which vibrations and ranges are resonant with you as a person/practitioner.

  • Key Benefits

    Why study with Essentially Flowers?

  • Become an expert in the use of flower essences

    Each month you will take your monthly flower essence plus be encouraged to take essences internally as required to uplift, relax and smooth your path through this Diploma. You will be guided to choose essences for yourself each month in your workbook plus be invited to share and learn from other course participants. Sara has been using vibrational medicine for over 30 years and understands deeply how supportive this modality can be to help us navigate through life.

  • Learn to use flower essences topically including Floral Acupuncture

    As a qualified Floral Acupuncture Practitioner, Sara shares with you a whole module dedicated to Floral Acupuncture. You will be encouraged in each Module to begin feeling the difference between internal and external use of essences.

  • Learn about and feel the deep support of Gem and Environmental Essences

    Gem Essences feel different to flower essences – this difference in vibration is explored in one of the Modules. You are also encouraged to explore and experience environmental essences. Embracing these three key different aspects of vibrational medicine allows you to develop into a highly attuned and experienced practitioner.

  • Become an expert in many different ranges of flower essences from around the world

    Each month you will take a chosen essence from the Range of the Month and document your experience while taking it. By sequentially taking one essence from 12 different ranges, you will experience the vibrational differences between each range and which vibrations best suit your own and your practice. We include a whole module on the background and history of flower essences – including the study of Dr Edward Bach. As students of flower and vibrational medicine, it is key to honour the modern heritage of what you are learning. The Bach Essences are studied in Module One and you are encouraged to work with them in further modules so that on qualification, you have a working knowledge of this very valuable range.

  • Learn to making your own flower and vibrational essences – using traditional and more modern approaches

    You are encouraged to begin to make your own essences (flower, gem, colour, environmental) during this Diploma using the plants that grow in your neighbourhood. Your course books give descriptions of different methods of making vibrational essences.

  • Learn different methods of diagnosis – including intuitive diagnosis, dowsing and muscle testing

    You will be encouraged to trial a selection of diagnostic methods of choosing essences – such as intuitive diagnosis, dowsing and muscle testing – and find the ones that suit you and the way you work. You will be amazed at how much your intuitive self will develop during this Diploma and how you will begin to just KNOW which essences you and/or your clients need.

  • Methods of dilution, storage of essences

    You will learn how to make dosage bottles from stock dilution and the best ways to store your collection of essences. Flower signatures Each flower, plant, tree speaks to us through its shape and colour – you will learn to recognise this language called the Doctrine of Signatures, which tells us much about the essence/the message of the plant.

  • Become an expert in the energetics of colour

    You will be taking a journey each month through the colour wheel – white, red, orange, yellow, lime, green, turquoise, blue, indigo, violet, purple, magenta and crimson. Each month the essence you take will be of one of the above colours – and so your energy system will learn the vibration of each colour and which colour vibrations best suit you.

  • Experience first hand the physical body as energy through learning about the chakra system and subtle energy bodies

    You will learn to see yourself as a being of light – through the subtle energy bodies and the chakra system. Each month you will be reflecting upon the health of your chakras – visiting one of the major chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, thymus, brow and crown) and some of the minor chakras each month.

  • Treat children and animals in your practice

    Each of the above is explored in detail in separate modules. Both animals and children love to take essences and you can be of great service by offering your services in this way.

  • Feel confident as a Practitioner

    In this Diploma course you are encouraged to reflect upon your own experience of being a listener and being listened to; we also cover the basic principles of counselling such as confidentiality, congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy.

  • Study Plant Spirit Medicine and meet the elemental beings that overlight the Nature Kingdom

    This is the basic premise of all that you learn in this Diploma – reconnecting back to plant consciousness and therefore how we are all part of the whole.

  • Bonuses

    What else is included that you may not find in other flower essence courses?

Devorah Harow - Beit Roga

"Cranio-Balance therapist for years before I met Sara, I had quite a knowledge base as well as experience. And so it was with great pleasure and surprise that the Flower Essence Diploma course provided me with not only a passion for Flower Essences, but with an education into the greater aspects of healing and the energy world that I had not yet experienced.I found the Diploma to provide an above and beyond – but so necessary – education about chakras, intuition, our own journey, our strengths as empaths, and intuitive practice. Sara opens our eyes and allows us to experience essences of all types from all different ranges, introducing us to all different range makers, and to various other therapies and aspects of healing as well.I loved that I not only got a great education and found a passion for Flower Essences, but I found myself in a community of like minded wonderful women who are now a major part of my social network and great friends and support.Sara is a teacher and mentor like no other, generous and sincere in her encouragement and belief in her students. She sees our strengths and stands behind us and beside us cheering us on and nudging us forward in encouragement of fulfilling our greatest potential.I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to expand their passion and experience in the healing world."

Sally Arthurs - Essentially Your Soul

"When I began the Diploma in Flower Essences with Sara I had no idea just what a transformation that it would bring for me on a personal level. The course is well delivered, highly informative and comes with an extensive level of support and encouragement. The way the modules are taught takes you on a journey of self discovery and healing that enhances the learning process, giving both a firm foundation and a confidence to explore deeper and grow at your own pace.It gives you confidence in your ability to work with others and support them on their journey.This course has been the most worthwhile I have ever done, as soon as I was immersed in the course work it changed from a purely learning experience to a journey of personal discovery and healing and a real feeling of understanding of what working with essences can bring for others.It is definitely a life changer and I can’t recommend this course highly enough!"

Morwenna Brady - Earth Moon Creations

"The Diploma for me has been a magical journey. When I joined I had lost my husband just over a year before. I was focused and keen to do the course but also experiencing a great deal of raw grief.This course has gently supported me with this journey whilst gifting me with knowledge and experience that I can now take out into the world so that I may help others with similar experiences embrace grief as a natural part of life and to journey with it naturally and with the support of nature.I have also grown a great deal in confidence with the support of Sara and the Diploma community. I have a heart full of love and gratitude that I have been blessed to have had this magical life changing experience with essences."

What our graduates have to say

Rebecca Millar

"I started my journey with Sara Turner in May 2014 with a 7 day journey to Reconnect with Your True Inner Nature, followed by a Sacred Money Alignment and the Manifesting with the Moon summer solstice.I really enjoyed the month journeying with the Manifesting with the Moon and became interested in using flower essences to help cope with depression and overwhelm.By the end of 2014 two major changes had occurred in my family and I again turned to the Manifesting with the Moon (winter solstice) to plan how I was going to cope from now on. The answer came with the ‘call’ to take part in Sara’s Diploma in Flower & Vibrational Essences.Throughout my journey on the Diploma I have felt incredibly supported by Sara, her team of tutors, and the students; through two monthly online meetings, awesome feedback on my workbooks and an online support group where we swap information, gain encouragement and confidence, and most importantly a place to ask for and be given emotional support.My journey with the Diploma has seen me emerge from the dark place of becoming the mum of a child newly diagnosed child with type 1 diabetes and a single parent in the matter of 6 weeks, through to a life changing relocation for me and my family to enable me to support my family as a Practitioner of Flower and Vibrational Essences.In myself I have changed out of all recognition; I no longer suffer with anxiety, depression or negative mind chatter, they have been replaced with peace, self-love, living in the moment and a deep love and respect for our beautiful Gaia. I shall ever be grateful to Sara and this amazing, life changing Diploma."
