Flower remedies by Dr. Bach

Some people may think that flower therapy as a holistic healing system should really fall under herbalism, but we believe that the work that Dr. Bach did warrants a page of its own, and the fact that the flower essences are so diluted that they do not work on a biological but rather on a vibration or energy pattern.

Dr Bach
dr bach flower remedies

Flower remedies, or flower essences, were developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930's. He worked in general practice with rooms in Harley Street, as well as a bacteriologist and working on vaccines and a set of homeopathic nosodes.

He left his lucrative practice and developed by means of his natural healing gift and intuition the system of medicine that now carries his name.

Dr. Bach identified and developed through observation 38 remedies corresponding to different negative moods or states of mind.

On this page, we have a short summary of each of the remedies:

It works on the premise that the remedies contain certain aspects of the plants' energy which in turn affects the energy field of the patient and by doing so helps people integrate their emotions.

The essences are taken by placing 2 - 4 drops on/under the tongue or putting 2 drops in a glass of spring water and sipping this water throughout the day.

Up to seven remedies can be used together, and it has been found that a few well chosen ones work far better than making a complicated cocktail of all of them.

Although this treatment may be subjective, it has proved to be successful on children in which subjectivity would be negated to some degree, it has no toxic effects and does not interact with any other medicine.

Agrimony Dr Bach flower remedies

When you hide your worries and troubles under a mask of cheerfulness, and dull the pain of worry through drink and drugs, you may benefit from agrimony. It also helps us to accept the darker side of life and our personality and life in totality.

When you are plagued by possessive love of others, and require love to be returned while you like to control and correct and in so doing stifle the development of other people you may benefit from chicory.

Clematis Dr Bach flower remedies

When you spend more time rooted in fantasy and daydreaming, without being properly rooted in the reality of now, and think more of future success and altered reality than spending time to build your "castles" then clematis may be of benefit.

Crab Apple

When you are plagued by impatience, frustration and irritability the impatiens flower remedy may help you to be less hasty and more relaxed and patient with those around you.

Pine

This is a remedy for the person blaming themselves for everything, but although they have done their best, still believe they could have done better and by doing so, have feelings of guilt, self-reproach, the inability to accept themselves which can then lead to despondency and despair, then pine may be of benefit.

Red Chestnut Dr Bach flower remedies

When your natural concern for those close to you - your child, wife, husband, mother, father etc is taken out of context and it becomes a fear, and you start to overcompensate for this by undermining the confidence of the person you feel concerned about, then red chestnut is for you, to help you turn your worried anxious thoughts to those of being a tower of strength.

Rock Rose

When your fear has turned to terror and your panicky state of mind makes conscious thought and decision impossible, then rock rose may be of benefit.

Rock Water

When you are seeking perfection in yourself but do so in the extreme, which leads to setting such high targets and being unkind to yourself if you fail your own rules, then rock water may benefit you. It will not decrease your high ideals but may help to ease the excesses, so that you are kinder to yourself.

Scleranthus

If you constantly cannot make up your mind, and carry this burden on your own, then scleranthus may be of benefit to you.

White Chestnut

When you are plagued by persistent unwanted thoughts, internal worries and arguments that go nowhere, and unable to concentrate on the here and now then white chestnut may be of value to help you deal calmly and rationally with your problems.

Wild Oat

If you are like a rolling stone, looking for your life's mission and direction, and keep on changing direction and work, then wild oat may be of help to assist you in defining your goals and purpose in life and in so doing showing the way forward.

Wild Rose Dr Bach flower remedies

If you do not even struggle against the daily worries and uncomplainingly accept what hand life has dealt you, without trying to better your lot in life, then wild rose may be for you. It would help you to get rid of apathy and bring a sense of purpose with happiness and enjoyment as a bonus.

Willow

When you constantly bemoan your life, even when it is a good one, and begrudge others their good fortune with bitter resentment and with general dissatisfaction with life, then willow may be for you.
