About Us


Findhorn Flower Essences was founded by Marion Leigh in 1992 and has been a family run business ever since. All of our products are handmade with love and attunement by a team of people dedicated to the principles of healing. All of our flower essence products are made from organically grown, wild Scottish flowers, plants and trees and prepared in pure water.  The products were developed in the heart of Findhorn following the disciplines of co-creation with nature and produced in accordance with Dr. Edward Bach’s original instructions and guidelines.  Findhorn Flower Essences is situated in the heart of Findhorn and in the heart of the Foundation’s Cullerne Gardens. Many of the flowers used in preparing the essences are growing here. Findhorn Flower Essences operates as an independent business and is an organisational member of New Findhorn Association.

About Marion Leigh



Marion Leigh is a long-time resident of Findhorn and founder of Findhorn Flower Essences. She developed the essences using flowers indigenous to the region, a continuation of the principles and practice of co-creation with nature; that tradition of attuning to the over-lighting nature intelligences or devas, for which the Findhorn Community became renowned around the world. Marion is a registered homeopath and teacher of Esoteric Healing within the International Network of Esoteric Healing (INEH).

At Christmas I will be 78. I am a proud mum and a grandma and live locally with my lovely partner of 24 years, Suzy.

I am now  into my 9th year of working in the Dispensary and still love my job. I like working in quiteness which serves me well and allows me to appreciate all our lovely flower essences and oils. I am delighted to have my daughter, Cheryl here working with me




Having initially trained as an administrator, I have enjoyed a wide variety of roles throughout my working years.  I recently worked for 6 years in the kindergarten at Moray Steiner School and I currently own a small wooden toys and gifts retail business.  In my spare time I enjoy caring for my home and spending time with my husband and son.  I believe that the love we bring to our work has a positive effect in the world and in all my roles I strive to bring this into action through my daily activities.    I am now delighted to be working with the dedicated team at Findhorn Flower Essences and in particular with my mum Christine in the dispensary.  



Marion Leigh’s daughter Iona Leigh grew up in the Findhorn Foundation eco-village community making the Findhorn Flower Essences with her mother and participated in many flower essences workshops, seminars and conferences in 1997. Iona now enjoys using the essences with her own children, who like making up their own special remedies!

After graduating with distinction and a Masters degree from London’s College of Music in 2007, Iona went on to teach music in pre-schools across London as a specialist music and movement teacher. Iona was hired by the British Arts Council to work through London’s Music House For Children, where she brought music and language into the Early Years Programme.

Iona released 3 self-written solo Celtic Music albums (link) on harp and voice and then returned to Findhorn to start a family of her own in 2010. As a young mother, she began teaching at the Drumduan Steiner Upper School and Kindergarten, and also for the Findhorn Foundation in as a facilitator on their Children In Community Programmes, Family Experience and Youth Experience Weeks.

I am the most recent member to join the FFE team. I moved to Findhorn from London to bring my son up near to the beach, forest and family.  I was a FFE customer prior to joining the team, having experienced first hand the amazing benefits of vibrational treatments.  I look after trade and practitioner clients, and am delighted to support them in helping as many people as possible clear the emotions that may otherwise predispose them to negative belief patterns and disease.




I am lucky enough to work part-time as an assistant to Christine and Cheryl, who are teaching me how to work mindfully and with love and care.  I am a huge supporter of Findhorn Flower Essences' core values and day-to-day work ethics, and am humbled to be working with the essences and oils that help so many people.

I was born locally and, due to the pull of this beautiful part of the world, have happily returned here with my family after 16 years living and working abroad.   





I am originally from South Africa, then spent 5 years working in London followed by my escape to Scotland.

I have worked here at FFE for 10 years and am responsible for looking after the business. My day to day job

Is spent managing all the small little things that need to be done to keep the business moving forward. I am looked after by 4 wonderful women who  do all the hard work.
