You may have heard of Bach Flower and some stories surrounding it, but do you really know what it is? You may be surprised to discover that it is actually not just one flower, but a collection of 38 therapeutic floral remedies. These remedies work in conjunction with homeopathy and other alternative medicines. So then how did these remedies come about?
Bach Flower remedies were developed by Dr Edward Bach during the 1920s-1930s, he was a British physician who believed that disease was largely affected by unhappiness and a negative mental state. This is what prompted him to turn to nature for healing. He found 38 healing flowers and plants which, with the right preparation method, became the 38 Bach Flower Remedies.
The remedies are used for coping with stress, mild anxiety, anger, fear, guilt, worry, and many other negative feelings.
The Bach flowers help you in combating these negative feelings to achieve a peaceful state of mind, and lead the way to a faster and more complete recovery. Bach remedies do not appear to have direct effects on the physical body or physical symptoms, but instead solely work on healing a person’s energy and mental state.
The flowers range from Agrimony (Agrimonia Eupatoria) which deals with fear and anxiety due to things like illness and finances, to Willow (Salic Vitellina) which deals with self-pity and resentment which can result from a significant life event. These negative feelings can be expressed through a person onto their friends, family and work peers.
The 38 flowers all specialise in a different area to help bring you out of the negative state. In order to get the full-effect of the flower, be sure to identify what you are struggling with and use the remedy that suits.
All of the remedies are produced from 100% natural spring water infused with wild flowers. They are then processed in one of two ways; either by sun-steeping or by boiling. They contain 27% grape-based brandy used as a preservative, or they can be preserved with glycerin from sunflowers for an alcohol free alternative.
"Healing with the clean, pure, beautiful agents of nature is surely the one method of all which appeals to most of us" - Dr Edward Bach, 1936
The Bach Flowers can be used by anyone, children and pets included. They are natural and are not toxic. The remedies have become one of the best natural healing alternatives. They allow you to achieve peace and happiness within your mind, which in-turn allows the body to heal.
