Episode 127 – As a child, Deborah enjoyed gardening with her Grandfather. This is what inspired her to become a certified floral designer and then she learned about flower essences.
Flower essences are natural remedies made from flower blossoms, which are used to uplift the mood for support in daily life. This was her calling!
Deborah became a certified practitioner and founded Earth Wind and Flowers in 1997. Her line of Balancing Sprays™ are sold in spas, health food stores, yoga centers, through practitioners, and online.
Deborah also educates on the power of flowers, offers private consultations and has been featured in the Chicago Tribune, Revitalize TV, and numerous magazine and news articles.
