In the 1930’s Dr Edward Bach [PICTURED BELOW], medical physician and well known researcher and bacteriologist discovered that different emotions and states of mind could be combated and improved with the use of different flower and plant based remedies. Bach identified 38 basic negative states of mind and created a plant or flower remedy that could aid each specific emotion. 


The way we feel directly effects the way we live or enjoy our life. If we are happy and positive as research shows our immune system thrives . Emotional and physical health can be directly linked.



Sometimes we all suffer situations and traumas that effect the way we feel. Often we try to             push our feelings and emotions to one side, to ignore themand bottle them up. To realise and understand our emotions is the first step in improving them. 


The Bach flower remedies can be particularly useful in treating children and animals also. 


Bach flower remedies can be helpful after a bereavement, in times of stress, before a driving test or when moving house, even in helping us adjust to changes in our lives and new environments. 

Bach flower remedies are completely safe and natural, they cause no side effects and can be used by children, animals and plants because they act in such a gentle manner.  



      You can take Bach flower remedies at any time of the day. If you are suffering a crisis, before a big day or after a stressful event you may only need to take one does however if you are taking a remedy or remedies to help combat emotions you have been feeling for a long period of time you may want to take two to four times a day even for up to a month or more.


   If you need to take or administer remedies to help aid more than one emotion you can mix 2 drops of each remedy in a 30ml mixing bottle of spring water and take four drops at least four times a day.



To take one remedy mix two drops of your chosen Bach flower remedy into a glass of water and take at several intervals. If necessary remedies can be dropped directly on to the tounge or even rubbed into the lips, temples, wrists or behind the ears. I have heard mothers of young babies having trouble sleeping, with colic, teething or generally distressed swear by using rescue remedy in a babies bath or rubbed directly on to the temples to soothe, calm and send off to a good nights sleep.
