Medica Packaging, the healthcare packaging business of the Benson Group, has provided detail on a full suite of packaging products that it has produced for Channel Island Flower Essences. Packaging includes crash-lock cartons for the following flower essence products: twelve individual boxes for 15ml dropper bottles; seven boxes for combination essences in 30ml dropper bottles, plus one box for a 15ml combination essence with spray attachment; and two boxes for personal mist sprays in 50ml bottle size. The project also incorporates multipack cartons: a themed three pack boxed series of Connection, Clarity and Crisis; and the Directors Cut boxed set for seven of the individual 15ml bottles of flower essence.
Channel Island Flower Essences was established at the turn of the millennium by Susie Morvan, practitioner and flower essence producer. The business focuses on Flower, Grass and Tree Essences created in the Channel Islands using the Sun Method, reintroduced in the last century by Dr Edward Bach. Flower Essences are the vibrational energy imprint of flowers by infusion in water by the sun. They are thought to work on the subtle body, aura or magnetic energy field that surrounds the human being. Channel Island Flower Essences produce a range of “Power” Flower Essences in Single and Multi-Flower Combinations used as catalysts of change. They can be used to rebalance emotional, spiritual, mental and physical well-being. They are safe to use for all ages.
All cartons are printed both sides using four-colour process on the front and Pantone specials on the inside. Print is enhanced by the use of a water-based matt coating. Individual essence packs and the Connection triple pack are produced on Performa Cream 440 micron board. The seven pack Directors Cut box, including internal fitment, are printed on Korsnas white 525 micron board. All items were printed on a Komori B1-format sheet fed press.
