Bach Flower Remedies - All You Need to Know

Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies were named after Dr Edward Bach, who discovered the healing properties of his 38 Flower Remedies in the late 1930's. Since then Bach Flower Remedies have become famous the world over. Crystal Herbs have made these remedies with love, to the original instructions of Dr Bach since the late 1980's. The products below are offered in association with Crystal Herbs

'Real health is happiness, and a happiness so easy of attainment because it's a happiness in small things; doing the things that we really do love to do, being with the people that we truly like. There is no strain, no effort, no striving for the unattainable; health is there for us to accept any time we like. It is to find out and do the work that we are really suited for.' From The Collected Writings of Dr Bach

Bach Flower Groups - Dr Bach's Seven Groups

Dr Bach placed his Flower Remedies into 7 groups. Each group of Remedies represents the differing ways a particular mental or emotional state could be seen and experienced in the personality. The Flower Remedies are ideal for treating these patterns. The seven groups are:

  • Overcare and Concern for others
  • Despondency and Despair
  • Lack of Interest in Current Circumstances
  • Oversensitivity
  • Uncertainty
  • Loneliness
  • Fear

Frequently Asked Questions - A Guide to Bach Flowers

Are there any contra-indications to using the remedies?

  • Bach Flower Remedies can be used by anyone safely and easily. They are usually preserved in a small amount of brandy. You only need four drops at a time, so the amount of alcohol is very slight and the drops can be taken in water if you prefer to dilute the taste. If you need to avoid alcohol altogether, ask to have them made up in an alternative medium.

How many can I put in a blend?

  • Bach Flower Remedies can be used in combinations of 7 or 8 Remedies at a time for an adult. See below for children.

What is Rescue Remedy™ and can I use it in a blend of Bach Flower Remedies?

  • Rescue Remedy™ is a trademarked name for a calming blend of the five Bach Flowers which treat our five most common reactions to shock, stress or nervous anticipation. You can use Rescue Remedy™ or its equivalent such as Revival Remedy or Five Flower Remedy in a blend with other Bach Flowers or on its own in times of stress or shock. If you add it to a blend you won't need to add any of the five flowers it already contains which are: Impatiens, Rock Rose, Cherry Plum, Clematis and Star of Bethlehem. It is also available from Crystal Herbs as Revival Remedy Cream: a very useful cream for bruises, sprains, scars, spots and other skin problems.

Can Bach Flowers be taken if I'm already taking other essences?

  • Bach Flower Remedies can be used alongside other essences, just take them 20 minutes away from each other. They work well in combination with deeper acting essences which release issues from the unconscious into the conscious mind. The Bach Remedies are then able to clear the resulting emotional and mental states and patterns as they emerge into our conscious mind, gently and easily.

I've tried Rescue Remedy and some of the individual Bach Flowers but they don't seem to work.

  • This is vibrational medicine, so the way in which essences are made is important. If one brand has not had an effect, then you could try changing the brand you're using. Please see below for brands I recommend.

Do Bach Flowers have other uses?

  • Bach Flower Remedies are very effective with plants as well as adults and children.

What happens if I choose an essence I don't actually need?

  • No harm comes from the wrong remedy as it cancels itself out if not needed.

What is the difference between the Bach Flower Remedies and other essences on your website?

  • Bach Flowers work wonderfully well in clearing the conscious mind. They work with states which we are aware of and therefore they are easy to self-prescribe, as you know if you are feeling angry, impatient or lonely, for example. As you can see from the website there are many other essences now available which work at a deeper level, where these states originate. They work on the karmic cellular level of our issues, on deep-rooted family patterns, conditioning and beliefs. Since these reside in the unconscious it can be much harder to prescribe for yourself, so you may like to consider a spiritually guided personal attunement if you'd like to work at this level and use the Bach remedies (perhaps as part of a Bach consultation) to identify the patterns that come through in to awareness and to ease the release of any emotional charge.

How many essences can I take at a time?
This depends on which of types of essences you wish to work with. Check here.

Bach Flower Remedies We recommend that you use these remedies made up into combinations of 7 or 8 individual remedies for an adult. It's better not to include essences which are not Bach flowers in these combinations. However a well-chosen combination of Crystal Herbs Bach Flower Remedies can often be very helpful when taken alongside one of our deeper acting combinations, just take them 20 minutes apart. See the explanation above.

Brands - Choosing an Effective Brand

I currently recommend Crystal Herbs (pictured at the top of the page) and Healing Herbs as brands which retain the original strength of the Bach Flowers. Ordering online from both Healing Herbs and Crystal Herbs is quick and easy. They can give advice and take orders over the phone, if you'd rather speak to a human being.

Rescue Remedy™

Please note that Rescue Remedy™ is a trademarked name for a blend of the five Bach Flowers which treat our five most common reactions to shock or stress. The same combination of remedies is called Revival Remedy in the Crystal Herbs range and is known as Five Flower Remedy by Healing Herbs.
