What is the
Bach Flower Remedy System?
The Bach Flower Remedy System was developed by Dr Edward Bach in the 1920s-30s. He was a renowned medical doctor and a bacteriologist from Britain.
Dr Bach believed that nature provides us a simple and pure way of healing our body. From his years of being a doctor, he realized that most physical ailments stem from emotional imbalances. And so he spent the last 20 years of his life studying flowers and herbs and doing clinical trials about their healing powers on patients. He identified 38 flowers and developed a system for using these flowers and combinations of them to treat all kinds of emotional imbalances.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How is Bach Flower remedies prepared?
There are two ways of making the remedies: sun method and boiling method: sun method and boiling method. The sun method is used for preparing more delicate flowers, whereby the flower heads are added to pure water and placed under direct sunlight for three hours. The boiling method is used to prepare the woodier plants, and plants that bloom when the sun is weak. This method involves boiling the flowering parts of the plant for half hour in pure water. In both of these methods, the flower ennergy are transferred to the water by heat. The energized water is then mixed with an equal amount of brandy to form the mother tincture. Two drops of the mother tincture is added to a 30 ml bottle filled with brandy, and this is the stock bottle. Stock bottles of the 38 remedies are available for sale.
