First Light Natural Health® and First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® are once again delighted to be supporting Flowertherapy World Day 2016, a global day of celebration for Flowertherapy and a wonderful international initiative by RIF – Registro Italiano Floriterapeauti.

This year, Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber, the co-creators of First Light® were invited to travel to Italy to speak at the celebratory event taking place in the heart of Milan. Whilst they are unable to attend the event in person due to a prior work commitment, Franchelle was asked to provide a video presentation on her work with First Light® essences. This wonderful video will be shown to the international attendees at the conference in Italy on the 25th September.


Also on this day, all across the world manufacturers, distributors, sellers, researchers, academics, associations, training schools and therapists will come together to showcase Flowertherapy as they join a wave of energy originated to renew, inspire and strengthen this ancient modality.


The 24th of September, the day dedicated to Flowertherapy World Day is the day that Edward Bach, father and pioneer of modern Flowertherapy, was born.  He re-opened the way to a marvelous adventure of healing and self-discovery by using the energy of flowers to support holistic wellbeing.


The Australian Aboriginals have always used flowers, water and sunlight to facilitate holistic wellbeing, as did the ancient Egyptians. Native Americans collected dew from flowers and there has been a tradition of using the energies of plants in the form of vibrational medicine in India, Asia, Europe and South America. The Maori of New Zealand have also used the energy of native flowers and plants in this way to support harmony and balance on all levels, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.


New Zealand is home to some of the most ancient and unique flora on earth and is recognised by science as being a biodiversity ‘hotspot’.


Aotearoa known as New Zealand split away from the southern continent of Gondwanaland about 120 million years ago and became a unique isolated oasis. New Zealand’s pristine flora has evolved in isolation for millions of years producing plants with unique qualities not available anywhere else in the world.

New Zealand native plants are unique in that they carry a natural energetic blueprint for the perfect state of wellbeing.


With the help of the ancient Earth guardians and in total cooperation with nature, First Light® flower essences were created by Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber from the pristine forests of New Zealand.

First Light® flower essences became a sacred taonga, treasure and a pure living embodiment of the sacred plant medicine of New Zealand. 

First Light® flower essences are used on every continent around the world. The first light that shines on the ancient forests of Aotearoa is now shining in every corner of the Earth and this light grows brighter every day.


On the 24th of September we invite you to join us as we honour and celebrate the gifts of nature by supporting the second Flowertherapy World Day - 24 September 2016.

A number of First Light® registered practitioners around the country will be offering FREE First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® consultations.
