What are the Bach
Flower Remedies?

They are safe, non-toxic, easy to use, and have no known contraindications; they are great for people, animals, and children. These energetic remedies were developed in the 1930s by the English physician Dr. Edward Bach. Dr. Bach was largely influenced by homeopathy as it was unfolding in the beginning of the 20th century and by his work as a bacteriologist. The main purpose of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies is to help heal negative emotional states. Our state of mind, mood and emotional outlook will often cause or are a result of suffering. Our emotional states are reflected in our physical bodies. Emotions like sadness and despair, fear and anxiety, hostility and defensiveness, lack of interest in present circumstances, over care for the welfare of others, and the effects of emotional/physical trauma, are all areas that Dr. Bach addresses with these tradi- tional flower remedies.
