Irene is a highly intuitive and skilled healer. She goes down the rabbit hole of possibilities to accurately locate, prescribe and deliver the perfect flower essence combination that will successfully address whatever you face.
She gets to the heart of the matter with extremely effective solutions and is a real blessing to the world. ~A.B.

I have used Irene’s remedies on a number of occasions – helping with skin allergies and cleansing our house after an event.
I found Irene listens carefully and has a clarity of mind that cuts to the essence.
This is reflected in her remedies which I found beneficial personally and for the good of our household. ~ S.D.

When my partner of nearly 30 years died suddenly my life was turned upside down. I was overwhelmed with sadness, grief and anxiety. Irene proved me with flower essences that steadied me so I could step forward. I am very grateful for her wisdom, knowledge and expertise.
Thank you Irene. ~ J.D.

Irene made up some drops to assist in opening my heart and it really surpassed itself with the love I gave and received from my family, upon visiting them.
Thank you so much. ~ D.C.

Irene is helping on my journey of healing old hurts and new personal growth… Irene has, I feel, a deep wisdom and is in tune with it, a precious gift. I am very grateful to have her in my life. ~ T.
