We have been using the Bach Flower Remedies for 20 years. There is one remedy for every human emotion, 38 essences in total, one thing that surprised me is out of the 38 remedies there are 293 million combinations of the Bach Flower Remedies…….
original Bach Flower Centre handed over to Nelsons in the late 1980’s and there had been no form of advertising or marketing done on the Bach Flower Remedies until approximately 1991. The Bach Flowers had spread around the world by word of mouth until this stage.
By using the Bach Flowers you are “flooding the body with positive energy” and are rebalancing the energy field, this helps to get the imbalances back to a manageable situation. If you use the wrong remedy, nothing will happen. Normally you would use up to 6-7 remedies but if you were having trouble deciding between a couple of the remedies you could take up to 9, anymore than this and it will miss the main area needed for help. What is not needed in the remedy will just go. If someone has been in a car accident, you can place the drops onto the persons wrist, which will work just effectively as drops directly into themouth.
These remedies do not have adverse effects, but like other natural medicines, suppressed symptoms may appear in the form of a rash while the body is healing, this is only temporary.
Some people will get results overnight while other may not, all people get a different response.
Rescue remedy is the “Acute” then and there remedy, used in an emergency, demanding or stressful situations, it is also good after an anaesthetic.
As the Bach Flower Remedies are preserved in a Grape Alcohol Solution, anyone that has an allergy or is an alcoholic or a recovering alcoholic, or for religious reasons, can still take the Bach Flower Remedies by pouring boiling water over the remedies, the boiling water will evaporate the grape alcohol solution. You can put the drops in a cup of tea, the heat does not upset the Remedy, they can be taken alongside prescriptive medicines and Homeopathics with no side effects and are non-addictive.
Edward Bach was born in 1886 and died in 1936. He became a Harley Street Physician who was ahead of his time. He gave up his Harley Street practice in the early 1930’s and went away and created the 38 Bach Flower Remedies. Edward Bach had suffered ill health most of his life.
A very intuitive man and by close observation of individuals found it was not the disease that needed treating but the moods and characteristics of the personality of the person. Dr Bach divided the 38 remedies into these seven groups:- fear, uncertainty, insufficient interest in present circumstances, loneliness, oversensitivity to influences and ideas, despondency or despair, over-care for the welfare of others. These groups represent fundamental conflicts which prevent us from being true to ourselves. Of the 38 remedies 37 are from plants while Rock Water is not.
These remedies have been helping people for over 70 years now.

Choose remedies that match your undesired emotional states. Simply place two drops (or 4 drops of Rescue Remedy) neat on your tongue or in a glass of water. Six or seven remedies may be taken at one time. For dosage bottles, place 2 drops of each chosen remedy into a 25 or 30ml dropper bottle and fill with spring water and take 4 drops at least 4 times daily – this dosage bottle should be finished in 3 weeks. If a dosage bottle cannot be kept in perfect conditions (cool area such as fridge) make the dosage and add 5ml or two droppers full of brandy. Please note that the Bach Centre in England recommends that a dosage form be kept no longer than 3 weeks.
