Are you wondering what the best flower remedies are for autism? If so, I’d like to share our story. We have been using flower remedies to address symptoms of Autism with my daughter for many years. As a result, words can’t express the difference they have made for our family! There are so many ways they have helped over the years. Therefore, personally, I’d say the ONLY times when flower remedies didn’t help with the drama (aka autism symptoms), is when they stayed in their bottles. But they never help anyone there!
Obviously, those with Autism face some big challenges. So there can be issues with handling emotions and other social struggles. Flower remedies have been the one thing that always seemed to help in some way or another.
Flower Remedies… Can They Help For Autism?
I have seen Flower remedies naturally address or dial down all sorts of behaviors associated with autism. All without harmful side effects. So I’m talking helping with the social, learning, speech, or withdrawal. As well as things like obsessions, general stress handling, & intolerances in general. But those are things we could use some help with. Really, I mean who doesn’t need more patience or tolerance sometimes?!
Flower remedies are the safest and the best way I know to emotionally and mentally support autistic children. However, flower remedies can also work on adults with autism spectrum disorders. So I’ve seen changes and breakthroughs in those “set in their ways”. In fact, I hope to “prove it” one day. I hope you will join me in this important autism research. In other words, document & share your experiences to begin building a body of “proof”.
Flower Remedies Safe & Easy to Use in Autism
You can try flower remedies with any other therapy you are doing. For us, they always seem to enhance other therapies. It’s like they help assimilate the therapy better somehow. So you can try them with other things like behavior, diet, meds, sensory, floor time or other therapies.
They are tasteless drops that slip easily into the water bottles of the pickiest eaters. Therefore, they can even be sent to school in water bottles completely undetected. I’ve never had any child who wouldn’t take them! Try that with MSM or Cod Liver Oil… Good Luck with that – YUK! But you can also put them in juices, smoothies, detox baths, aromatherapy or herbal teas. As a result, they boost the efficacy of all other healing tools.
The difference flower essences have made in my daughter’s maturity, progress and outlook on life have been a beautiful thing to witness. In fact, years ago it was my twin daughters that decided “the world needs these flower remedies too”. The change in our family’s life has been a huge blessing!

Flower Remedies For Autism… My Top Picks
Below I have the remedies listed by their impact on the broad symptoms of autism. In other words, the first is most “classic autistic”. I tried to keep them in order of likely relevance. But they all seem to have their place & value.
Keep in mind that autistics may share some commonalities. However, they are still INDIVIDUALS. Therefore, they could have other symptoms that aren’t covered here. If you are still unsure about the right flower essences to choose to address all patterns, I’d love to work with you. am a flower therapist available to consult. I work through telephone, email, instant messaging, training or other special events, and in person.

If you find many of these resonate with your child, you can always make them their own powerful remedy. I recommend as you go through the list rate them 0 – 10. With a 0 meaning they don’t display the symptoms or if they do they’re not as bothersome or impactful. Conversely, those that are the biggest problems being a 10. Then based on the highest numbers you add those to their custom remedy.
I know… it is an extensive list! Do many if not most strike a chord? Then, I know you’ll ask this question. “How Many Can I Use at One Time?” There are many practitioners in the field who don’t believe anyone should take more than 5-7 at a time. Here’s the thought on why more isn’t necessarily better when it comes to remedies… The natural energetic vibrations in flower essences act as healing messages to the body. If you give too many instructions at the same time it might lose its clarity. Think of this way… The More voices in a crowd of people speaking or screaming the harder it is to make out what is being said!
Personally, I don’t believe there is any harm in using too many essences but there could be consequences if someone is not getting the right one(s). So I guess it might be a fine line between making sure you have enough without diluting (or muffling) some of the healing instructions.
