BACH FLOWER REMEDIES

Restore Emotional Balance with Bach Flower Remedies.

BACH FLOWER REMEDIES

Replace negative emotions with positive ones.
Between 1928-1935, Dr. Edward Bach, pathologist and bacteriologist, discovered and developed a series of 38 flower essences that help correct various emotional imbalances. Dr. Bach’s philosophy was that healing the emotions would ultimately result in good health.

What is it?

Bach Flower Essences are a system of 38 flower essences designed to promote emotional balance. They are made by combining 100% naturally from spring water infused with wild flowers by either steeping them in the sun or by gently boiling and then cooled outdoors. This infused water is then combined with a 50:50 solution of brandy and water. The alcohol in Bach Remedies is used as a natural preservative. Some remedies are now available in an alcohol-free glycerine base. Each remedy can be used alone or in a combination of up to 7 different remedies based on an individuals emotional characteristics. The best known, and the only generally prepared combination, is Rescue Remedy®.

What is it Used For?

The flower essences created by Dr. Bach are designed to be used to balance negative emotions paving the way for physical healing. Dr. Bach grouped his 38 remedies into 7 different emotional categories with certain remedies representing specific emotional characteristics of a particular category. The groupings are listed below. To view more information, click on each the product name.

Fear – there are five remedies in this category offering courage, fearlessness, reassurance, composure, and peace of mind. Rock Rose (froze fear, terror), Mimulus (lack of courage, timid, stammering), Cherry Plum (fear of losing control, temper tantrum, breakdown), Aspen (fear, worries, unknown fears), Red Chestnut (worried, over-concern, fear).

Uncertainty – the six remedies in this category help to ‘know your own mind’ by offering resolve, encouragement, hope, decisiveness, direction, and guidance. Cerato (confirmation, don't trust own judgement or wisdom), Scleranthus (indecision, imbalance, uncertainty), Gentian (discouraged, depressed), Gorse (hopelessness, despair, pessimism), Hornbeam (weariness, tired, doubting own abilities), Wild Oat (cross-road in life, decision making, lack of clarity).

Loneliness – three remedies that help to reach out to others offering patience, connection, and tranquility. Water Violet (anti-social, condescending, proud), Impatiens (impatience, irritated, nervy), Heather (talkative, demand attention, dislike being alone).

Over-sensitive – four remedies to help with assertiveness, constancy, goodwill, and openness in order to stand your ground. Agrimony (addiction, unhappy, anxiety), Centaury (weak-willed, bullied, passive), Walnut (change, menopause, let go of the past), Holly (envy, jealousy, insecurity).

Despondency or Despair – promoting joy and hope through eight possible remedies offering comfort, positivity, support, absolution, solace, confidence, strength, and faith. Pine (guilt, humble, unworthy), Elm (depression, overwhelmed, despondent), Larch (lack of confidence, discouraged, feeling of inferiority), Sweet Chestnut (mental anguish, despair, intense sorrow), Star of Bethlehem (trauma, after effect of shock, post traumatic stress), Willow (self pity, resentment, bitterness, irritable), Oak (exhaustion, overwork, fatigued), Crab Apple (poor self image, cleansing, obsessive).

Over-Caring for Others – ‘Live and Let Live’ with five possible remedies offering inspiration, unwinding, tolerance, release, and flow. Chicory (possessive, manipulating, demanding), Vervain (over enthusiasm, hyperactive, highly strung), Vine (domineering, inflexible, aggressive), Beech (intolerance, critical, lack of compassion), Rock Water (self repression, self denial, self perfection).

Insufficient Interest in the Present – seven possible remedies offering presence, focus, insight, tranquility, enthusiasm, brightness, and restoration to help live for today. Clematis (daydreaming, lack of concentration, withdrawing), Honeysuckle (homesickness, nostalgia, bereavement), Wild Rose (apathy, resignation, lost motivation, lack of ambition), Olive (lack of energy, fatigue, convalescence), White Chestnut (mental arguments, sleeplessness, insomnia), Mustard (depression, deep gloom for no reason), Chestnut Bud (learning, repeating mistakes).

How does it Work?

Bach Flower Essences are designed to work on an energy level. Each flower essence carries the energy of the plant from which it was made. These work individually to rebalance and heal a specific emotional state. Emotional healing can be a treatment in and of itself, however, it is thought that once the energy and emotional state is in balance, the process of physical healing can then take place.

Bach Flower remedies are gentle and completely safe. They can be taken by persons of any age and are also harmless for pets and animals. They are safe to take with any herb, supplement, or medication, and can be taken as often as needed. Overdose is not possible, if not needed, they will simply not work.

How to Use It?

The Bach Flower Essences are very easy to take and can be taken in a variety of ways. For immediate use, take 2-4 drops of the appropriate remedy either directly on the tongue or in a glass of water that can be sipped at intervals.
For longer term use, up to 7 individual essences can be combined in a 30mL dropper bottle and topped up with mineral water. Take 4 drops of this mixture up to four times daily. These combinations are usually put together by a professional specially trained in Bach Flower Essences.
