First 38 Bach Flower Remedies/Essences

 

Dr. Edward Bach was a surgeon in the early 1900’s. He was a bacteriologist and a pathologist. After a life changing tumor he started studying homeopathic medicine. He was interested in treating a person as a whole and he changed his life’s work to study plants as healers. He took many years and created the First 38 Bach Flower Remedies. 

Flower remedies or essences are an energetic plant based medicine. Each flower aides a different emotional and psychological state or issue. It is a gentle medicine that is charged positively unlike pharmaceuticals that are charged negatively. It’s believed to be beneficial because the energy is pure, raw and filled with life. 

You can take flower essences straight under the tongue or add a couple drops to your water. Remember they are a homeopathic remedies, so less really can be more.  Find out more about Dr.Bach’s work and the remedies here.
