First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®

Nature’s Design For Life exclusively uses First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® in their products and services. Quite simply because: “they work” like nothing else does. You will find below more information about this amazing range of essences called the “Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa”.



First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® work at a vibrational or energetic level to rebalance the whole person – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. They work on the electrical network within and surrounding the physical body to correct imbalances and to re-align our energy systems for holistic wellbeing.


First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® are completely natural preparations made from individual New Zealand native flowers, ferns, trees, seeds, and plants.  First Light Flower Essences are incredibly powerful tools for personal transformation and for restoring harmony and balance.  Flower essences are created when flowers or plants release their essential healing energies or vibrational blue print into water. The essence is then naturally potentised to amplify its efficacy.  However, the importance of who, what and where, and how these essences are made is fundamental to the power and potency that they bring to humanity.

The range of 144 First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® hold the healing patterns that address 144 meta-physical/ distorted/dis-functional energetic patterns common to most emotional and spiritual dis-harmony. Up to 8 essences can be expertly combined to create complex formulas that directly target the cause of emotional and spiritual imbalances. The essences work gently over time to restore emotional and spiritual inner harmony.

The first five families number 1- 84 are the main essences used in most formulas and are able to address everyday situations and correlate to the first five areas of the holistic makeup of a person at the level of personality and soul. These families of essences are:

  1. Flower Family of Essences- Transform – transform negative attitudes. Flowers help to transform negative personality attitudes into positive expressions of unique individual qualities. When negative attitudes are transformed life becomes a joyful experience and there is a feeling of flow in the life.
  2. Fern Family of Essences- Clear – clear away life’s hurts.
    Ferns help to clear away trauma and pain from the layers of the aura. Our aura holds the memory of all that has happened in our life, and negative experiences often hold a lot of energy attracting more of the same to our life. When the aura is clean and clear harmony is restored.
  3. Trees Family of Essences – Balance – create inner balance. Trees help to clear, strengthen, protect, align and energise the chakras. When this occurs a state of inner balance happens, allowing you to tap into the unlimited power of your potential to act from truth.
  4. Seeds Family of Essences –Re-pattern – create new patterns in life. Seeds help to overcome limiting beliefs and fears stored in the DNA. When you are no longer bound by known and unknown fears, you experience inner peace.
  5. Plants Family of Essences – Grow – grow from all experiences. Plants assist the soul to grow from all life’s experiences. When you take every situation as an opportunity for growth, you begin to live life full, the plants support you to achieve the fulfillment of soul lessons.  Then life becomes really fun!

The remaining families of essences no.86-144 are more specialty essences that relate to the soul and spirit of a person and also the indigo/crystalline children. These essences are used when an individual’s situation requires additional support and highly targeted assistance.


First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® were created in 1999 by founders Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and husband Tony Wyber, with the unprecedented support of Maori elder and traditional Tohuna (wisdom keeper), Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere C.B.E. C.M.
First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® are awarding winning plant essences and sacred plant medicine from New Zealand, known in Maori culture as Aotearoa. First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand are world leaders at the cutting edge of pioneering research and development of sacred plant medicine. The essences have an extremely high vibrational potency, considered by many to be the highest vibrational sacred plant medicine available in the world. They provide a powerful yet gentle means of transformation to achieve holistic wellbeing.

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber is a medicine woman,master shamaness, healer and sage. Franchelle has been fully initiated into the Kura Huna, the mystery school of the Maori, and is a matakite (seer) one who sees with the healing eye and a genuine matatuhi  (prophet) ‘one who can read what is written in the wind.’


Franchelle has from a very young age had highly developed clairvoyant and psychic abilities. From a young age she was able to see a persons aura and see the underlying dis-harmonious attitudes, emotions and mental states that cause this person’s problems or illness. Importantly, Franchelle was also able to see clairvoyantly that some very special native New Zealand plants held the corresponding vibrational blueprint that could be used to transform negative energetic states in humans into the corresponding positive state. Using this unique ability Franchelle has created First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® 144 vibrational plant essences that hold the healing pattern for 144 dis-harmonious attitudes, emotions and mental states that cause this person’s problems or illness. These essences can be combined in complex ways to address any meta-physical condition.

In 2006 Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber was awarded the New Zealand Health Industry Distinguished Services Award for “Pioneering, Developing and Establishing New Zealand Native Flower and Plant Essences for Holistic Healing”. This is an unprecedented achievement that is rarely if ever given to those working in the vibrational medicine arena. As such it is a true testament of the amazing products and work that Franchelle has achieved. Franchelle is the author of the highly acclaimed book “The Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa Volume One” with the second Volume due to be released in 2015.



New Zealand has long been recognized for its ancient flora and pristine energy. The native flora from which the First Light Flower Essences are made is some of the most ancient on Earth. About 120 million years ago, the landmass we now call New Zealand or Aotearoa, separated out from the primordial southern continent of Gondwanaland. New Zealand has remained pristine, totally isolated from any other landmass for well over 100 million years with an uninhabited pristine nature that is home to a remarkable collection of plants. Some species of trees growing in New Zealand forests have an unbroken ancestry stretching back into prehistory for over 190 million years. For example, the truly majestic Kauri tree has a linage that stretches back over 190 million years. The extra-ordinary essence made from the Kauri tree correlates to the heart chakra in the metaphysical anatomy of the human organism and brings healing to the heart, releases all forms of heart felt suffering and trauma so commonly felt in humanity, and restores the ability to love, and enhances pure love.

New Zealand also has a remarkable array of ferns, from the very tiny to the very large. 650 million years of evolution has produced this group or family of plants that are perfectly suited to offer much in the way of deep healing. Many New Zealand ferns are particularly effective at releasing very deep and extensive trauma including physical, emotional and mental traumas.

The plants used in First Light Flower Essences are of a particularly high vibrational frequency that is only found in New Zealand, called whakahirahira plants. New Zealand has an incredible number of these Whakahirahira plants. What makes these Whakahirahira plants special is that they all have the unique quality of a complex healing pattern, called a “healing cord” made up of three notes as found in music. This healing cord in each of the 144 healing essences is what helps to create an integrated holistic healing system that is found in the New Zealand Flower Essences of New Zealand. This is not found anywhere else in the world.

The essences have all been made by Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber using ancient protocols and practices that are 1000’s of years old. Franchelle works directly with the infinite plant intelligence using ancient chants that have been fully restored. Working in this way to create these powerful essences means that the plant intelligence is actively involved by releasing its healing capacity and creates a dynamically potent plant essence that truly works at all levels of the being to restore balance and harmony.
