The Bach Flower Remedies, also known as Bach Flower Essences, are a healing system derived from flowering plants and trees. Created in the 1930's by Dr. Edward Bach, a medical doctor and bacteriologist, the Bach Flower Remedies are 38 plant and flower based formulas that can help us manage emotional demands of everyday life by bringing negative attitudes and feelings back into perspective.
The 38 remedies, along with Rescue Remedy, represent a complete system of healing directed at the personality, mood and emotional outlook of an individual. They are selected according to a particular temperament, state of mind and/or natural character. Each remedy aids a specific emotion or state of mind.
The Bach Flower Remedies are a gentle and subtle means of restoring peace of mind. They are safe and effective and may be used on infants, the elderly and even animals. They do not interact with other forms of treatment and are a truly complementary therapy. The Bach Flower Remedies can help you take control of the way you feel and help you get more out of life.
