Before I began the Diploma in Flower and Vibrational Essences, I was feeling lost and alone. I was going through a very emotional time in my life, and this led to anxiety and depression. I had followed my spiritual path for a number of years but it felt like I had fallen down a black hole into the darkness and I could not find a way out. I started researching natural remedies and I found the Dr Bach flower essences. I had no idea how to take them and how they would help, however, they felt so right for me. I found a book and started learning about them as well as taking them. The little bottles felt like a nectar to my soul; I started to feel calmer and not so much in my head all the time. I could not leave home without them, they went with me everywhere, and were so helpful to me when I felt my emotions beginning to go all over the place.

I started to follow Sara on Facebook and I loved what she shared about them. I read about the Diploma and felt this is what I wanted to do. I arranged a clarity call with Sara to find out more, and after that call, the calling to learn more was larger than ever. In November 2018 I was accepted into the Diploma. Now that I have graduated, I feel I have found myself and what I am on the earth to do. It’s taken me until age 61 to find this. I value myself so much more now, knowing I can do everything and not doubting my abilities. I have more confidence in speaking in front of people, which I never had before.

The Support throughout the Diploma was amazing. We had monthly meetings and gatherings to share how we were going on the modules, as each module you take a flower essence.I received excellent feedback and guidance on all workbooks. Taking the Flower Essence Diploma journey helped me to step up ,step out ,and speak up.


Having used flower essence for myself, family and friends for twenty years, I had the opportunity to start Sara's Diploma to gain a qualification in order to change from my long-standing academic career to being a professional practitioner in this modality. Little did I know at the time of enrolment what a life-changing and magical journey this was going to be. I was soon to discover that this experience was going to be more about my own healing journey and self-development than just a qualification. 

As a mother of five and a freelance worker, the easily accessible online study at my own pace fitted in with my busy lifestyle. The downloadable materials interviews and resources are of a very high standard and are well supported by monthly heartspace gatherings, classroom style webinars and one-to-one flower buddy support. The course is an in-depth study of many aspects of energy medicine, tools, techniques and intuitive practice, whereby through each separate Module, you are able to gradually build on your understanding, both intellectually and intuitively, gaining confidence and an extensive knowledge to support others on their own healing journey. 

The highlight for me was the residential weekends in France, where as well as learning in a supportive environment with Sara and her assistant, it was as though I had escaped for a much needed retreat to be nurtured and connect with like-minded people, as well as the elemental Kingdom of the beautiful surroundings. From these weekends, I have shared and grounded my learning and experiences in a community of peers, whom I feel deeply connected to and expect to become life-long friends. I have found my spiritual family.

As I travelled along my Diploma journey, I soon realised that I had been an observer of my life up until this point and not fully embodied or participating, despite my achievements. I had deeply held fears of visibly being a healer, which had held me back in the past. These were dissipated by the profound support of the essences, the elemental and plant kingdoms, as well as the gentle and professional support and encouragement of Sara and her team. The result of this was a transformative personal experience of profound energy healing, reconnecting me back to my inner heart wisdom. I will forever be grateful for having this life-changing opportunity and seeing it through to its completion. I truly opened out from a sealed bud into a blossoming flower, ready to take my healing gifts into the world.

I was very happy to find Sara’s Flower Essence Diploma Program online. I had worked for Alaskan Essences with Steve Johnson and the team there for 3 years from 2009 to 2012, and was not able to complete my practitioner training during that time for varying reasons. When I moved to Ireland in 2014, I was eager to find someone who was teaching a practitioner course locally in Europe. Sara’s Essentially Flowers Diploma Program was suggested to me by Steve Johnson of Alaskan Essences and also by Ann Callaghan of Indigo Essences. 

As soon as I spoke to Sara the first time, I knew that it was the right course and was excited to start the Diploma right away. It has been a dream come true to become a flower essence practitioner and to work with the Nature Kingdom. I also wanted to learn the many different aspects involved in the making of flower essences. I was so happy to learn about many different ranges of essences and the producers of these ranges as part of the Diploma. 

The course is a journey in learning more about yourself as well. Each module teaches you how color, shape, application methods, and intuition can be used in experiencing the essences. Each experience takes you deeper into yourself and your own healing journey. The attended weekends in France are such a joy and so much knowledge is shared in a very efficient and easy way in order to learn the concepts that are spoken and taught about. 

There is so much support offered during the course including webinars, conference calls, flower buddy sessions, a Facebook forum, and email correspondence. You never feel alone and can always reach out for help if it is needed. I found this aspect very helpful and it is nice to have the experience of all the others completing the course and previous graduates also. 

I would highly recommend the Diploma in Flower Essences to anyone wanting to learn more about flower, gem, and vibrational essences. It is such a joy to now feel that I can go out into the world as a very well rounded and educated flower and vibrational essence practitioner. I look forward to moving forward on the path of my dreams!

For a long time before I came into the Diploma I had wanted to deepen my knowledge of working with flower essences and become a professional practitioner. I was divinely guided to start my flower journey and I have loved and enjoyed every aspect. Taking the Diploma has been life changing in so may ways. I feel as though I have found myself, connected to 'me', and I feel more confident and at ease with myself. It's been an incredible journey of connecting to the magic of nature and I felt very supported. I found the content of the course to be very well structured and as I went through the twelve modules, they each built on each other and far exceeded my expectations.

Taking the Diploma journey has been so much more than training to be a practitioner. It has helped me to open and improve my intuition and has taught me to connect to feelings in a very expanded way. I feel as though I have found self-belief. I loved going on the attended weekends; the location is very special, you are surrounded by beautiful nature and the hosts looked after us very well. The amazing vegetarian food was all part of the experience and I felt incredibly nurtured.  This Diploma experience has opened me up to so much, and I have grown in so many ways. I am forever grateful that I was able to do it. Throughout the course I have experienced some huge life changes and I was incredibly well supported and fully held and guided through it all with gentle and loving encouragement and wisdom, which kept me going through some very difficult times.

Being part of an online group where I could connect with others who are taking or have finished the diploma has been a crucial part. I have learned to reach out and ask for support when I need to, and to be able to then support others and I have found amazing friendships. It feels like I am part of something really special and it's amazing to be around like-minded people.

I would encourage anyone that is called to connect with nature in a deep way to take this course. It has been a powerful journey of remembering magic, wisdom and strength and also remembering who I am. I have found self-belief, self-love strength and empowerment.  I also learnt to be more in my heart and out of my head. I have found fulfilment, transformation and deep healing on my flower healing journey. I now experience a deeper connection with nature and it has changed my life forever. I cannot quite believe that I have done it; it has been a dream come true. It is not just a course -  it is an amazing journey of transformation. I am not the same person I was when I started.

I am so glad that I took the Diploma with Sara. She has created this very magical pathway of learning and connection to nature which I feel is a calling to remembrance of who we truly are and studying flower essence therapy opens up many doors to be happier, and more balanced and loving towards ourselves and other people and the world around us. This course has been incredibly well put together.

I absolutely loved every moment of this Diploma. I knew I had to do this when I saw the diploma details and I was not wrong! This is a life-changing journey as well as a learning journey and worth every penny and every moment spent doing the course. It took me further than I could ever have imagined.

Doing the diploma on line was not a detached or isolated experience because there is so much support from the tutors, the flower buddies, the forum and others on the course. Real, genuine, caring support. The diploma brought flower essences and the related subjects to beautiful life.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing the Diploma in Flower Essence and Vibrational Medicine course which is run and taught by Sara Turner. It is an excellent and in-depth course which gives one an extensive knowledge of the twelve essence ranges studied as well as the confidence, knowledge and skills to be an Essence Practitioner. The course is transformational and helped me to develop both personally and professionally as I went through each of the modules.

Sara gives excellent support and guidance and encourages her students to develop their knowledge, intuition and confidence throughout and to be able to integrate theory with practice in a graded and supportive way. There are opportunities to meet Sara and the other students on the residential weekends which have been a wonderful opportunity to meet likeminded individuals and to be able to put knowledge learned into practical application in a supportive environment.

It has been fantastic to connect via webinars also with fellow students and tutors for support and information sharing. I am very happy to recommend this course to anyone who is seeking to have a deeper knowledge and understanding of the gifts which the Nature Kingdom and the essences provide.

I first came across flower essences many years ago, and was hooked from the word Go! But it was only later when I was training to be a reflexologist that I discovered one could also train to be a flower essence practitioner. Wow, I thought, this sounds good, so I signed up and became a practitioner of the Bach remedies, which I thoroughly enjoyed.Flower essence therapy combined very well with my reflexology practice, which combined well with a young family. So all went well until baby no. 5 arrived, and I had barely time to breathe, let alone run a complementary therapies practice! Years went by, my children became older, and meanwhile I trained and practised as a parenting worker, helping restore harmony and hope to families struggling with aspects of their childrens’ behaviour. I absolutely loved this work and thought I had found my niche for the rest of my working life, but the Universe sometimes has other idea.

As part of a cost cutting exercise, all the children’s centres in my county were closed, so there I was with no job, no colleagues, no involvement and no direction. It was a very painful time and of course, it happened while my family and I were coming to terms with a couple of bereavements, and I was struggling and not succeeding with coming to terms with empty nesting. It was at this point that I heard about the Diploma. For quite a while I had wanted to know more about other Essence ranges and to learn more about the flower essence world, so it seemed like a good idea to enrol on the Course. It is an absolutely brilliant course, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I learnt so much about the world of nature, about all different kinds of essences and about the producers, and a lot about myself too, along the way. I felt deeply supported and encouraged all the way through and I have really loved meeting and getting to know my fellow-students on the Diploma. It was the best thing I could have done, and has enabled me to ease gently into a new life after losing the job I loved. The Diploma gives you time for reflection and re-evaluation, it gives you the tools to gain a deeper and broader perspective on Life and life events. I feel stronger, more resilient and more optimistic after doing the Course, and I wish I could do it all over again!

The three most significant improvement in my life thanks to the Diploma and Transformational Journey in Flower Essences are: 1) the gradual easing of Self Doubt. This has been a major issue for me for years, but working with the essences and having the time to reflect, have made me realise that automatic assumptions about myself and negative self-talk were no longer serving me. I was able to let them go and replace them with healthy and life-affirming thoughts. 2) Trust. Learning to trust myself, my abilities, my intuition and my insight, and also to trust that I can achieve things. Learning to trust the power of intention was also a big thing for me, and to trust that there is a reason behind most things.3)The Diploma gave me an education into the world of nature and essences in the deepest, broadest way and it also gave me many amazing, practical tools to use in my practice going forward.

Thank you Sara, for such a fantastic course, it has been life-changing, and I have loved it all!

The Diploma in Flower and Vibrational Essences was well presented in a logical sequence and easy to follow, with support where it was needed. It was good to be able to learn at my own pace online but equally good to meet up with others on the attended weekends. I feel that I have been given the relevant grounding in the therapy to be able to use it within my existing practice.

It has been an incredible journey into the fascinating world of flowers and Mother Nature. I feel humbled and truly blessed to have this knowledge at my fingertips. I loved coming along to the attended weekends to connect with the other students and have the shared experience. Learning how to do things like making an essence brings it all to life, and helps you remember it, along with the other exercises we do.

Talking with the other students allows a deeper understanding - by them sharing their experiences it cements each other's knowledge. It’s good to connect with Sara in person and to tap in to her vast knowledge, and experience the support.

The Diploma has been a magical journey for me. When I joined I had lost my husband just over a year before. I was focused and keen to do the course but also experiencing a great deal of raw grief.

This course has gently supported me along this journey whilst gifting me with knowledge and experience that I can now take out into the world so that I may help others with similar experiences embrace grief as a natural part of life, and to journey with it naturally with the support of nature.

I have also grown a great deal in confidence with the support of Sara and the Diploma community. I have a heart full of love and gratitude that I have been blessed to have had this magical life changing experience with essences.

I would just like to say that I have found Sara to be a very knowledgeable tutor–a real expert in her field not only in the flower kingdom but also with her teaching methods. The support and guidance has been immeasurable through her encouragement, dedication and understanding of all that has been going on in my life.

I looked at a number of courses when deciding on embarking on a flower essence journey but Sara’s jumped out the most because of the variety and the linking in of more than one modality. Having the 3 weekend workshops was brilliant – it allowed the students to come together but it also allowed a space to discuss face to face the flower essences and how one felt after taking them in a safe environment. I feel this is very important on a course like this.

If Sara was to do any further courses – whether from a graduation perspective or a course around her own range of essences -  I most certainly would be signing up without any hesitation whatsoever.

This course has quite literally been life changing for me and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to take part.

With the support of Sara and the other students, as well as the flower and gem essences, I have the confidence to really connect with my inner self and listen to my heart, which has opened up a world of opportunities in work and my personal life.

This course is life changing, life affirming and a joy to undertake. What the flowers and gems bring to your life is nothing that you can foresee. The course is supportive, fun, interesting, creative, inspiring and I have made a group of friends for life. The weekends, heart space gatherings and webinars have given me the opportunity not only to make new friends but to connect with people who I maybe would not have met in any other way, and has also given me a network of like minded colleagues.

The information provided is informative and easily available whenever you need it. All facilitated by Sara who is truly supportive and genuinely cares about how much we develop ourselves as our businesses. Words cannot express the gratitude I have for being able to undertake this course. The whole experience has been life changing personally and professionally and only for the better. I would highly recommend it.

As a Cranio-Balance therapist for years before I met Sara, I had quite a knowledge base as well as experience. And so it was with great pleasure and surprise that the Flower Essence Diploma course provided me with not only a passion for Flower Essences, but with an education into the greater aspects of healing and the energy world that I had not yet experienced.

I found the Diploma to provide an above and beyond education experience about chakras, intuition, our own journey, our strengths as empaths, and intuitive practice. Sara opens our eyes and allows us to experience essences of all types from many different ranges, introducing us to the different flower essence producers, and to various other therapies and aspects of healing as well.

I loved that I not only got a great education and found a passion for Flower Essences, but I found myself in a community of like minded wonderful women who are now a major part of my social network, great friends and a source of support.

Sara is a teacher and mentor like no other, generous and sincere in her encouragement and belief in her students. She sees our strengths and stands behind us and beside us cheering us on and nudging us forward in encouragement of fulfilling our greatest potential.

I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to expand their passion and experience in the healing world.

When I began the Diploma in Flower Essences with Sara I had no idea just what a transformation it would mean for me on a personal level. The course is well delivered, highly informative and comes with an extensive level of support and encouragement. The way the modules are taught takes you on a journey of self discovery and healing that enhances the learning process, giving both a firm foundation and a confidence to explore deeper and grow at your own pace.

It gives you confidence in your ability to work with others and support them on their journey.

This course has been the most worthwhile I have ever done. As soon as I was immersed in the course work it changed from a purely learning experience to a journey of personal discovery and healing, and a real feeling of understanding what working with essences can do for others.

It is definitely a life changer and I can’t recommend this course highly enough!

I want to thank you Sara for the great space and experience you allowed and provided during this year.

Your professionalism in putting the course together, your easy way of explaining the material, and your heavenly selected essences taken during those 12 months have opened inside me doors, released limitations and enabled the flow of my real self to find its purpose.

This Diploma is a life-changing course. The beauty, vision, healing, and support offered by the vibrational essences will take you on a journey over the course of a year that will forever change you; and on every step of this adventure you will be supported by Sara and her Magical Team, both elemental and physical!

The course is beautifully sequenced, module building upon module in every respect, and supports you in learning intellectually and intuitively. Sara’s knowledge of her field is vast and deep, and she shares her wisdom here with generosity and clarity.

The Diploma is a magical creation that succeeds on every level, leaving its graduates with a profound knowledge of the nature kingdom and all its gifts, and a deep inner knowing of their own hearts and paths.

This Diploma was something I had wanted to do for many years and never thought it would be possible. Two years ago, my life had some positive changes which enabled me to sign up for this Diploma. I was over the moon and living in a state of disbelief for quite a while!

I have found this Diploma to be one of the best things I have ever done in my life and have really enjoyed every moment. Each module I completed helped me grow as a person, helping me to figure out who I was and helping me to believe in myself. I have grown from a seed to the biggest, most beautiful flower.

I cannot recommend this course highly enough, it’s a very informative, thorough course with amazing support on hand. Although this course was mainly done at home I never felt alone, always someone to help you when it was needed.

I just want to thank Sara and her team for making this course possible, I am now ready to use what I have learnt and help others become the people they truly want to be.

Sascha Maple

This Diploma has been the best course I have ever taken. It is a truly life changing experience to be connected to the amazing Nature Kingdom in this way. Sara presents the course material in an easy to learn way. The attended weekends are such a joy.

A huge big THANK YOU for the way in which you help us to connect with the Flower Essences and enable us to learn so much in such a fun and easy way."

I would highly recommend this Diploma course. I found the course to be extremely well structured, and by far the most healing and enjoyable I have ever done. Anyone who does this Diploma will discover, as I did, the biggest ‘Life Gift’ of all– and that is the love and support that is ever present in nature for all of us.

I am so grateful to have found Sara and be able to do this Diploma online – it has changed my life for the better.

I started my journey with Sara Turner in May 2014 with a 7 day journey to Reconnect with Your True Inner Nature, followed by a Sacred Money Alignment and the Manifesting with the Moon summer solstice. I really enjoyed the month journeying with the Manifesting with the Moon and became interested in using flower essences to help cope with depression and overwhelm. By the end of 2014 two major changes had occurred in my family and I again turned to the Manifesting with the Moon (winter solstice) to plan how I was going to cope from that point. The answer came with the ‘call’ to take part in Sara’s Diploma in Flower & Vibrational medicine.

Throughout my journey on the Diploma I have felt incredibly supported by Sara, her team of tutors, flower buddies and the students; through two monthly online meetings, awesome feedback on my workbooks and an online support group where we swap information, gain encouragement and confidence, and most importantly have a place to ask for and be given emotional support. My journey with the Diploma has seen me emerge from the dark place of becoming the mum of a child newly diagnosed child with type 1 diabetes and a single parent in the matter of 6 weeks to a life changing relocation with my family to enable me to support them as a Practitioner of Flower and Vibrational Essences.

In myself I have changed out of all recognition. I no longer suffer with anxiety, depression or negative mind chatter; they have been replaced with peace, self-love, living in the moment and a deep love and respect for our beautiful Gaia. I shall ever be grateful to Sara and this amazing, life changing Diploma.
