Ian White is the founder of the Australian Bush Flower Essences and a 5th generation Australian herbalist who has been practicing successfully as a Naturopath for 30 years. His great-grandmother, worked as a herbalist during Australia’s Gold Rush in the 1850’s. Ian’s grandmother like her mother before her, were among the first white people to research and use native plants for healing. Ian as a young boy grew up in the bush, living next door to his grandmother and would spend as much time as possible helping her make her herbal tinctures and extracts. She would often take him for walks in the bush teaching him the healing qualities of many of the plants and flowers within the Australian landscape. Ian has continued this family tradition, though specializing in the emotional and spiritual qualities of the Australian bush. He is the author of five major books and regularly teaches workshops on the Bush Essences and his Spiritual Essences in over 30 countries.
