Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies

_image-for-bach-flower-page-2The Bach Flower remedies were discovered by Dr Bach in the 1930’s. His career in medicine lead him to seek a healing system that would focus on the reason for illness. His knowledge and experience as a Bacteriologist and Pathologist made him realise that bacteria alone was not the sole cause of disease, it was the emotional state of a person that could also vastly contribute to their prognosis.

Dr Bach saw the Bach Flower remedies as his life’s work and he believed that they were the medicine of the future. He saw each and every person as an individual who had their own views and stresses in life.


How do Bach Flowers work?

Bach Flowers works at an emotional level, they seek to balance any negative emotions and give support to us through any difficult times we may encounter in our lives and help us to develop our positive strengths. They are safe for all the family to use and have been used or many years throughout the world by Complementary Practitioners, individuals and families.


Rescue Remedy

Very often the first encounter people have with Bach Flowers is Rescue Remedy. This remedy is a combination of five different Bach remedies out of the 38 remedies which are available. Each individual remedy in the Rescue Remedy treatment is chosen to help support us in a crisis or for times when we are under great pressure emotionally. The combination contains: star of Bethlehem (for the feeling of shock); Rock Rose (for the feeling of terror); Cherry Plum (for the times when we are fearful of letting go, losing control); Impatients (for the times when we have feelings of being under pressure, urgency, hurried) and Clematis (for when our feelings seem almost unreal, a spaced out sensation). Dr Bach combined these remedies for us to use as a simple remedy which is safe for times when we are feeling under pressure. We can turn to Rescue Remedy when we have experienced a shock, an accident, on hearing bad news or under stress, like taking an exam or a visit to the dentist or even a driving test, any situation that we feel we need to be rescued!

Rescue remedy is available in a dropper bottle, spray or pastilles which can be purchased from our on-line shop. Also available is a Rescue Remedy Cream.
