English Wildflower

Self-realization and the work of Dr. Edward Bach

We have all been blessed with the inherent birthright to grow, evolve, feel personal fulfillment and happiness. The degree to which we achieve these to a large extent depends on how committed we are to dealing constructively with negative moods and emotions. Seventy years ago, the renowned British physician, bacteriologist, homeopath and researcher, Edward Bach, discovered 38 remedies made from English wildflowers that help bring negative moods and emotions back into balance. These are natural, safe, non-addictive and without side effects. They do not interfere with other medications, conventional or homeopathic, and may be used by adults, children and animals.

Dr. Bach believed, and others since have shown, that negative moods like jealousy, worry, fear and hopelessness, when left uncorrected, can compromise the immune system and lead to physical disease.

Karooch Superior Synergies

Karooch Superior Synergies are unique blends of pure and natural essential oils. In the Karooch tradition they are fully potent and undiluted.

These reflect over 20 years experience formulating custom blends for clients by our in-house aromatherapist, Karen Christopher. They are the result of matching the unique message of each oil to the personal needs of the individual. Each “synergy” or blend has a special purpose enhanced by its own aromatic imprint.

They may be used to create body oils, in the bath, added to lotions, used in diffusers and on a tissue to scent pillows, drawers or cupboards.

Why Buy Karooch Essential Oils?

Why buy Karooch Essential Oils?

We are a Canadian company that sources essential oils worldwide and buys in bulk quantities. We bottle and distribute thereby cutting out the middleman. So, if our prices seem more than reasonable this is the reason. Like other distributor we do not import finished product from the US or any other country.

Absolutely none of our oils are diluted or manipulated. In fact, we keep gas chromatography (GC) reports on hand for customers that use our oils in the manufacture of skin care products. For example: each drum of tea tree oil that we buy comes with an Australian government certificate of analysis. Lately, we’ve used the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi to test our Bulgarian and French lavender oils.

Indonesian Patchouli oil is more valued than Chinese Patchouli. The Indonesian material has a patchouli alcohol content of about 50%; the Chinese is usually around 25%. We bottle only the Indonesian oil.

Chinese Geranium oil (greenish colour) is considered superior in terms of colour and aroma to the Egyptian (yellowish colour). We strictly bottle the Chinese for our retail marketplace.

We also bottle North American peppermint oil as opposed to the much cheaper Indian oil which is actually Cornmint.

We do not box our oils to avoid extra packaging costs, the unnecessary harvesting of trees and unwanted additions to the landfill.

We would like to help you in providing your customers with the best possible aromatics.

Sincerely,

Andy Christopher

President

Bailey Essences

Bailey Essences

We look upon the Bailey Essences as the next plateau of flower catalysts flowing from the work of Dr. Edward Bach. Whereas the Dr. Bach's essences help to re-balance out-of-kilter emotional states, the Bailey Essences (we've noted from personal experience) appear to work on a more profound level by helping us to question ingrained belief systems (molded by family and society) that may lie at the root of those out of balance states. That is to say, negative emotional states may recur if not dealt with on a more fundamental level. In many instances, Arthur Bailey's (PhD) descriptions in The Handbook of the Bailey Flower Essences also appear multi-dimensional, possibly working on various levels of consciousness simultaneously. One thing about working with potent catalysts for change is that the experience is very personal, not readily conducive to quantification and sometimes difficult to verbalize. We invite you to draw your own conclusions.

We should add that Arthur Bailey is a former professor of electrical and electronic engineering at Bradford University in the U. K. Consequently, there is a very striking and undeniable parallel between Bach and Bailey: both men were heavily grounded in the sciences before moving on to the more intuitive work they are now more noted for. Neither was/is quick to shun the importance of understanding the workings of the physical world and the benefits derived there from. However, their respective intuitive capacities and sensibilities enabled them to pioneer botanical catalysts that go beyond material quantification and begin to explore the broadening of personal consciousness which, paradoxically, has never been comfortably factored into any scientific method.
