Nadine Parkhill Kaine, Founder of Texas Wildflower Essences

Meet Nadine Parkhill Kaine, M.A., R.M.T.

 

Nadine became a flower essence maker and producer after retiring from a 40-year career serving mentally challenged young adults in Texas and Oklahoma, and children in Protective Services in Illinois and Virginia. Nadine then spent three years in massage school in Washington D. C., opening the door on a second career in natural healing, including Reiki and vibrational therapies. Once introduced to essences, she was off and running with her own exploration and experiments with vibrational remedies.

 

Her first efforts were with flowers in her yard using the Bach method of herbal solar infusion. Understanding the importance of wild-crafting, she went on to collect essences from wildflowers throughout the Hill Country of Texas. She identified the plants at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas. From this exploration, she created the Texas Wildflower Essences and made her essences available through stores in the Austin area.

 

She retired from her flower essence making and practice in 2002. She passed them on to Genai, her close friend and colleague. Nadine continued to use essences and grow her beloved flowers in her yard until her passing in 2010. 

 

Nadine was born in 1928 in Beaumont, Texas, where she attended Lamar Junior College, graduating with a degree in science. Later in life, Nadine earned a master's degree in English from Louisiana Tech University with additional studies in Psychology and Special Education.

 

Genai has extended Nadine’s work with additional channeled translations for the essences and further research into how to use them to best benefit people and the planet. She also transferred them from their original alcohol preservative using the telhomeopathic method so that the vibrations are now preserved in distilled water.
