Bach flower remedies are gentle herbal preparations that address the emotions, moods and mental states.
Bach flower remedies are gentle herbal preparations that address emotions, moods and mental states. The 38 remedies were discovered by forward-thinking physician, bacteriologist and homeopath Dr. Edward Bach in the 1920s and 1930s, as he searched for a gentler form of medicine that could address the personality of the patient. The 38 remedies plus the crisis formula are a complete and simple self-help system that has been used ever since in many countries around the world.

About Bach flower remedies...
Bach flower remedies give gentle support for the stresses and emotions of life by subtly helping them move through us so we can learn from them.
Bach flowers are not aromatherapy. They are gentle preparations made from flowers, trees and water preserved in alcohol, and they don’t retain the scent of the original plants used. Bach flowers are taken internally and can be used topically as well.
Bach flower remedies do not interact with medications, however you should always check with your doctor before taking them.
Each person has a different response to the remedies. Some feel a difference right away while some take a few weeks or longer before a difference is noticed.
The remedies are sold at many health food stores and online. There are several brands available.
The remedies can be added to water or other drinks, taken straight from the stock bottle or applied topically. You may blend several remedies together to make a formula. A few drops several times a day is usually recommended.
The 38 remedies are considered a self-help system, and Dr. Bach hoped that people would learn about and use them on their own. Many people find it helpful to work with a practitioner in the beginning who knows the remedies well, until they learn the system for themselves.
