Bach Flower Remedies: Natural Support for Emotional Balance

Welcome to a Place of Healing

If you’re navigating through emotional challenges, feeling overwhelmed, or simply seeking a natural way to attain emotional stability, you’ve come to a space that understands and offers gentle support. Bach Flower Remedies, discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1920s and 1930s, are here to help you harmonise your emotions.

Understanding Bach Flower Remedies

Each of the 38 remedies in the Bach system is uniquely attuned to a basic human emotion. For example, Mimulus is your companion when anxiety or fear about something specific is impacting your life. These remedies aren’t just about alleviating symptoms; they are about connecting with the emotional root of your challenges and facilitating a journey to your natural state of health.

Our Philosophy

Dr. Bach’s philosophy centers on simplicity and self-reflection. He believed illness serves as a marker on our path to personal growth. By considering our emotions seriously, often for the first time, we start the healing process.

How We Can Help You

Our Bach Flower Practitioner works exclusively with your emotional needs, creating personalised blends from the 38 remedies, each capable of addressing the spectrum of human feelings.

The Consultation Process

Your journey begins with a 50-minute consultation, where we listen and understand your unique emotional landscape. This understanding allows us to craft a blend of 1-7 remedies, tailored just for you.

About Dr Edward Bach

Embarking on a journey that would bridge the realms of medicine and holistic healing, Edward Bach, born on September 24, 1886, carved a niche for himself in health and wellness. With a medical career that began with prestigious memberships and degrees from the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians, and culminated in an influential role as a pathologist and bacteriologist at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital, Bach’s early work in Nosodes set the stage for his groundbreaking future endeavors.

It was the natural world that ultimately captured Bach’s heart and defined his legacy. As he explored the woodlands and fields, he observed a profound connection between the flora and his internal landscape. This revelation was the genesis of his life’s work: the Bach Flower Remedies. Bach developed a nuanced understanding that each plant harbored an essence that mirrored and could mollify human emotional experiences. In utilising these essences to address emotional imbalances, he found that one could also forestall or even treat physical ailments.

Far ahead of his time, Bach recognised a truth that modern medicine now acknowledges: untreated emotional distress can manifest as physical disease. In the twilight of his career, he dedicated himself to refining a simple yet potent natural healing system, accessible to all. His contribution to natural health is a palette of 38 flower remedies, each a key to unlocking emotional well-being and, by extension, physical health. Bach’s vision was not just to treat but to transform, to offer not merely medicine, but a pathway to a harmonious life.

How the Bach Flower Remedies Are Made

The creation of Bach Flower Remedies is a process that honors the delicate nature of the flowers and the potent energy they carry. There are two primary methods employed to harness the therapeutic essence of these plants:

For the more delicate floral varieties, the sun method is utilized. Here, the blooms are gently laid upon the surface of clear water and left to bask under the direct kiss of sunlight for a full three hours. This exposure allows the water to become infused with the vibrational patterns of the flowers.

For the sturdier, woodier plants, or those whose blossoms open under the softer light of a dim sun, the boiling method is preferred. This involves a gentle simmering of the flowering parts in water for thirty minutes, a process that encourages the transfer of the plants’ energy into the water.

After either method, the resulting water, now vibrant with the flowers’ essence, is mixed with brandy in equal parts to create what is known as the mother tincture. This potent mixture is then further diluted — a mere two drops of the mother tincture are added to 30 ml of brandy. This final dilution results in the stock bottles you find gracing the shelves of health stores like Boots, Holland and Barrett, and the like, ready to aid in emotional healing.
