What is the
Bach Flower Remedy System?
"The mind being the most sensitive part of the body, shows the onset and the course of disease much more definitely than the body, so that the outlook of mind is chosen as the guide as to which remedy or remedies are necessary."
~ Dr Edward Bach
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. When we return to our natural balanced state of mind, the body does not have to battle negative energies, and will then have the best chance to heal itself.
In the last 20 years of his life, Dr Bach discovered 38 remedies that, when in use singly or in combination, balance the negative emotions that cause harms to the body. These emotions are the same emotions prevalent in modern living, such as fear, anger, uncertainty, lack of confidence, loneliness, etc.

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 energy 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.
