Bach Flower Essences

“Health depends on being in Harmony with our Souls.” Dr . Edward Bach, 1932


Our emotions have a direct impact on our physical health. We hear it frequently that “stress” is a killer. Modern spirituality and quantum physics conclude that our very words can change our reality and change our molecular structure. Thoughts, words and emotions are cause and effect of our life’s force vibration. When we are ill, unhappy, traumatized or negative, our vibration drops. When our vibration drops we are more susceptible to illness and disease.

Dr. Bach- notable homeopath, bacteriologist, physician and researcher identified 7 categories of disturbance in the human soul and 38 flowers- whose essences help to balance these disturbances.

Over 400,000 different combinations are possible to treat the many imbalances we may experience in our lives.

Bach flower essences are not intended to treat physical illness. However, the many ways that stress, unhappiness, confusion and distress may affect our physical health can be balanced. The new balanced state of emotions can result in physical healing.

Bach flower remedies are considered vibrational remedies. The “energetic” properties of the flower are transmitted to the user in water.

How they work

Dr Bach used a metaphor to describe how the remedies work. He said, ‘they are able, like beautiful music, or any gloriously uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our Souls: and by that very act, to bring us peace, and relieve our sufferings.’ .

There are many theories about the mechanism the remedies use to achieve this. Most believe the active ingredient in the remedies is a kind of energy or vibration that is transferred from the living flower to the water during the process of making the mother tinctures. Some believe the energy forms a pattern in the water; others talk of quantum mechanics and spiritual vibrations. Attempts to capture this energy have produced beautiful Kirlian photographs showing distinct patterns and colors for different remedies – but little hard research has been done. Any firm conclusions are just speculation.

That they work, and often work profoundly is not a matter of speculation. Thousands have used and continued to use the Bach Flower Essences to heal their emotions and deepen their spiritual journey and relationships with the world and their intimates. Bach Rescue Remedy®, the composite remedy for emergencies, is known as the “Number one natural stress remedy in the world.”


The remedies are selected during a conversation between the client and the practitioner. Designed as a self help system, one can also select their own remedies. By exploring our negative emotions we are guided to the essences which will best remove the energies that hinder us. Initially many people choose to work with a practitioner for it’s economic benefits and accuracy and work independently over time.

As an interesting footnote, many clients during the interview have an aha moment, and feel some relief right away.

Unlike other types of talk therapy that may include prescription medicine, your personal formula is not suppressive, with no side effects and will begin to act immediately to harmonize your emotions.


Treatment is in the form of water to which has been added 2-4 drops of each remedy. Each treatment bottle will last 3-4 weeks.

Negative feelings and stresses may resolve themselves in one treatment bottle or after several different and changing personal formulations. Often longstanding concerns such as sleeplessness, or repeating self destructive habits will unpeel over time. The assistance of Bach flower essences has often been the gentle support needed to stay the course to make dramatic and lasting change.

While one does not need to take remedies indefinitely, many find them a wonderful support for all of life’s challenges.
