IFER is the U.K.'s primary importer and distributor of flower essences and other vibrational essences.

The field of flower essences worldwide includes products which have been broadly inspired by the pioneering work of Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930's in England. His work led to the creation 70 years ago of the generic essence range known as the Bach Flower Remedies, which are today made by several companies worldwide, including at least six in England. IFER carries one of these lines (Healing Herbs Bach Flower Remedies), and also 20 other non-Bach essence lines from around the world.

The range of essences today includes flower essences made with the blooming plants of many diverse regions of the world, several different procedures (both the traditional cutting method devised by Dr. Bach, and a few non-cutting methods), as well as essences of the energies of pristine environments, of plants and creatures of the sea, and even other animals. Essences are used by therapists in a multitude of ways, in support of other modalities (such as kineseology, homeopathy, massage, acupuncture, reflexology, aromatherapy, counseling and others) as well as being a modality of healing in their own right.

Globally today there are at least 400 different essence-making companies developing their ranges of vibrational essences, the great majority of these being very small businesses. As anyone can choose to create a line of flower essences, it is vital at the very least that the customer uses his or her discernment when deciding which essences to use or to work with. At the International Flower Essence Repertoire we simply take this act of discernment one step further: we choose to carry only those lines which we ourselves hold in high regard. It is likeley that we have missed some good ones out there; what we can be sure of is that the range of essences we offer to our customers is of the highest standard.

We serve the needs of three main types of customers:

interested members of the public
professional therapists
and retailers across the UK and Europe

For members of the public we provide a wide range of essences, backed up by our knowledgeable staff who are able to provide information and answers to a wide range of questions regarding the use and self-prescription of essences. The selection of essence ranges available - some 21 at present - have been carefully selected by IFER, and represent the best of what we have been able to find in the world.

For therapists (as well as members of the public), we provide an on-going educational programme, bringing to the UK the finest essence makers from around the world, to share their knowledge and wisdom with us in seminar-retreats at our centre in Scotland. We strive to provide the best possible service, and the best possible essences, at the best prices. We ensure that the essences are stored well at our premises in the Inner Hebrides, so that the essences are happy and at their full potential when they are received by our customers. And we are constantly looking out for the new developments in the field of vibrational essences, and endeavour to bring the best of what is new to your attention.

For retail shops we offer unmatched expertise in relation to the market potential of flower essences. With 11 years experience in supplying shops across the UK and Europe, we know what will sell well in the retail environment, and will guide you towards those products.

Above all, IFER is a company dedicated to bringing the best of vibrational essences to the market, and to help foster this exciting and important field which has seen such rapid development in the past decade.
