Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber began her work with native plant essences in 1975. By 1985 she was pioneering the development of the world’s first integrated range of flower essences that include flower, fern, tree, seed and plant essences as well as specialist essences for healers and lightworkers around the globe.
Since 1995, Franchelle has worked with Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere. C.B.E C.M. highly esteemed tohuna and ancient wisdom keeper. In 1999 at a televised new millennium dawn ceremony, an 'official' call was sent out asking the native plants and nature power of New Zealand to provide the people of the world with the healing necessary for the unprecedented challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. This call was answered and the work was blessed by Dr. Pere in her role as official spiritual guardian and patron in perpetuity.
In 2002 co-creators Franchelle and Anthony, along with Dr Pere officially launched the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand, the first range of flower essences made from the native flora of New Zealand.
