Editors’ Note: The first part of this article is at http://www.floweressencemagazine.com/blog/?p=1305, in which we challenge readers to come up with some of these movie/essence pairs themselves. Go ahead and get into the fun! Don’t feel you need to stay with the Bach remedies — but do include  the essence manufacturer’s name as well as the movie where the quote can be found. List additional entries in comments.
