About our company

Findhorn Flower Essences is a well-established and award-winning family business with over 30 years’ experience in the production and distribution of Flower, Gem and Elemental Essences.  Our products are lovingly made by hand, here in Findhorn and in our very own Essence Garden, using only the finest natural and organic ingredients.

Marion Leigh, founder of Findhorn Flower Essences, was a trained homeopath and teacher of Esoteric Healing. Marion first gained an awareness of her ability to communicate with nature intelligence when she left Australia and moved to the Findhorn community. She attuned her skills over many years, particularly through her studies with the three Findhorn founders, Peter and Eileen Caddy, and Dorothy Mclean.

Marion’s daughter Iona Leigh began to run Findhorn Essences in the summer of 2019, after her mother’s passing. As a passionate Flower Essence Producer, Teacher, Advanced Practitioner and Essence Researcher with the British Association of Flower and Vibrational Essence Association, and holds a Masters Degree (with distinction) in Music, Media & Health from Thames Valley University, London.

Marion Leigh taught her daughter Iona to creates all our essences from a young age and Iona now ensures that human, natural and cosmic forces are in balance and harmony. One of our favourite essence locations (shown in the picture above) is Iona’s namesake isle on the sacred and holy isle of Iona, on the west coast of Scotland.

The Human Element is the attunement and co-creation with nature intelligence.

The Natural Forces are the properties of the plants and flowers themselves, together with energy centres contained within the landscape.

The Cosmic Forces are harnessed using the energies available at any specific time: the zodiacal influences, the full and new moon, and the time of day.

It is Iona’s precise attention to detail, together with her learnt ability to harness these forces, which give our essences their uniquely high vibrational potency.
