Sleep is so important yet often can be so elusive.

When we look at the latest sleep statistics, there's no doubt that most of us could use a little help from flowers:

  • 1 in 3 of Americans have inability to sleep sometime during their lives (However, whenever I give workshops, I always ask folks to raise their hands if they have troubles sleeping and across the U.S. it's at least 1 in every 2 people who can't sleep!)
  • 50–70 million people in the U.S. have a sleep disorder
  • Roughly 9 million Americans use prescription medications to sleep
  • As many as 50% of children suffer from sleep disorders at some point
  • 1 in 3 kids are dangerously addicted to their smartphones, which doubles their risk for poor sleep
  • The allocation of drugs to kids under 16 has rocketed from 339,848 in 2016 to 487,054 in 2019—an increase of 43%
  • The root cause of most sleep problems is stress

Whereas the medical system regards inability to fall or stay asleep as a disorder, it is merely a symptom of our ever busier lifestyles; we find ourselves overwhelmed and overstimulated during the day, making it more difficult to relax when it’s time to sleep at night.

And while some people have turned to natural sleep supports like herbs and aromatherapy, most have not yet heard of one of the gentlest forms of natural medicine—flower essences—that work via the acupuncture meridians of the body. They do not have a scent and are traditionally taken internally.

Here’s the good news about flower essences for sleep:

They work.

Flower essences are effective and fast-acting, targeting the root causes of restless sleep, so that even chronic sufferers notice a remarkable difference in sleep quality within several nights.

Done. In less than a second.

Don't just take it from us. See what people are saying:

As beneficial as meditation, yoga, and a good workout are for our overall health and sleep patterns, sometimes we just don’t have or make time for them. Using flower essences requires no major time commitment. It’s easy and convenient: take 5 drops sublingually 5 times a day or put a dropperful into your water bottle each time you fill it up and drink it throughout the day. Taken regularly, they greatly benefit any health and wellness regimen (including meditation, yoga and your workout).

Flower essences have no side effects.

They are safe for adults, pregnant and nursing moms, children and the elderly, with no contraindications. This is revolutionary, because the side effects of sleeping pills can include dizziness, uncontrollable shaking, grogginess, stomach pain—the list goes on and on. Some are habit-forming and yet others cause parasomnia, which includes engaging in activities like driving and eating while fully asleep.

Statistics show an increasing number of adolescents being prescribed sleeping pills. We don’t yet know the long-term consequences of these medications on their bodies, at a time when their neurological and endocrine systems are not yet fully developed.

On the other hand, the short-term effects of flower essences are a greater sense of peace, strength, clarity and happiness. When used regularly over time, they eliminate non-constructive patterns, accelerate personal growth and help you operate from your best self all the time.
