What are Bach Flower Remedies?

Bach Flower Remedies are a set of 38 essences extracted from wild plants and trees that have healing properties on an emotional level. These remedies were developed in the early 20th century by the renowned British Dr. Edward Bach. In the United States these are classified as homeopathic remedies and, since 1976, have been recognized by WHO (World Health Organization) for their healing effects.

How Were The Remedies Developed?

Edward Bach was born in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century. He grew up in the countryside and, since he was a child, he always had a great love for nature and a concern for the well-being of the people around him. He graduated in medicine, specialized in public health, and studied phytotherapy and immunology. Edward Bach was a brilliant mind for his time (and ours too!). He quickly realized that conventional medicine had limitations and was not looking for the true causes of illness. When observing patients it became evident for him that there was a strong connection between the healing process and the patient's personality. Dr. Edward Bach knew the properties of plants, which he observed and investigated. From the plants he began to prepare medicines, which he prescribed according to the patients temperament. The results were so positive that Dr. Edward Bach dedicated those that would be the last years of his life to research and investigate flower remedies. He discovered 38 flower remedies in nature and left a wonderful legacy to humanity!

An Overview of Bach Flower Remedies

Dr. Edward Bach discovered 38 + 1  remedies, which he organized into groups based on 7 types of emotions. Each remedy, in addition to acting on a certain emotion or mood, can also be a type remedy, that is, a remedy for a certain type of personality. In addition to the 38 remedies, Dr. Edward Bach developed a 39th one that is a synergy of 5 remedies to be used in emergency cases.

How Do You Take The Remedies? 

Bach Flower Remedies can be taken in the short and long term.

For temporary negative states, indisposition, and occasional anxiety, the remedies can be diluted in water, milk or juice. Two drops of each remedy 4 times a day, with no more than 7 remedies to be taken. You can also put 4 drops of Rescue Remedy directly on the tongue whenever necessary. Rescue is used in emergencies such as panic attacks, excessive stress, and burnout.

For longer health conditions, it can be taken by dilution, directly on the tongue, and on the skin. The best way to take is orally and you should take 16 drops a day, diluted in a bottle of water and drink throughout the day. Prolonged dosing should be done only after consultation with a therapist, since it is necessary to choose the most appropriate remedies based on each individual's situation.

Bach remedies act mainly on an emotional level, they have a very mild effect and have no side effects. They can be taken by pregnant women, children, pets, and even other plants! They are an excellent complement to health and well-being. It is however worth remembering that each case is a particular case. If there are people to whom the result may appear after a few weeks, in other cases it may take longer. Bach Flower Remedies must not be used solely and exclusively in extreme cases such as exhaustion, depression, stress, and anxiety. It is always recommended to follow up with the doctor and use the remedies as a complement to well-being.
