Ethnobotany Data: Client Intake and Essence Selection

Posted by admin on Jan 15, 2011

Editors’ Note: Back in July, 2010, Vibration Magazine published a request for flower essence practitioners to participate in graduate student, Erin Galiger’s masters’ thesis research in the field of Ethnobotany through University of Kent, at Canterbury (UK). She promised to share the data with participants, and she also sent a copy to Vibration.  She has kindly permitted us to publish portions of it here.  Find the intro to this series of posts here; find more of her data published here on Vibration here.
