First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®
New Zealand has been isolated from other lands for 85 million years. This isolation is one of the reasons why the flora is so unique. Aotearoa’s ecosystem has evolved as a cooperatively based benign system, so the native flora embodies these cooperative qualities. No other country on Earth has the same remarkable characteristics. The total absence of human beings for thousands of years has allowed the ancient forests to grow unhindered.
First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® were created by Franchelle Ofsoské‐Wyber and Tony Wyber to specifically address the challenges of the 21st century and their impact on the holistic health and wellbeing.
In 2008 Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber, co-founder of First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® was awarded the New Zealand Health Industry Distinguished Services Award for “pioneering, developing and establishing New Zealand native flower and plant essences to facilitate holistic healing”.
There are five families of essences included in the First Light® flower essence range: flowers, ferns, trees, seeds and plants.
After achieving my Certificate of New Zealand Flower Essence Therapy, I’ve been recognised by First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® as the first registered practitioner of my country since May 2017.
I feel deep gratitude to share my love for these beautiful native plants by using them with my clients.
