Healing through Your Soul – Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies

“Health depends on being in harmony with our soul, it is our heritage and our right. It is the complete and full union between soul, mind and body; and this is not a difficult far-away ideal to attain, but one so easy and natural that many of us have overlooked it.”
Dr. Edward Bach

The Bach Flower Remedies were discovered in England in the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach, a medical doctor and homeopath. When working with his clients, he realized that mental attitudes have a direct and powerful effect on the healing process. Dr. Bach had the desire to treat the whole person and not only work with the symptoms of a disease. He intuitively knew that his answers were to be found in nature, and he discovered 38 flowers that help balance negative mental and emotional states to promote healing and well-being. Today they are known as the Bach Flower Remedies.


The Bach Flower Remedies system is comprised of 38 remedies, each prepared from specific wild flowers and tree blossoms. The exception is Rock Water, made from a natural spring with healing properties. Each one resonates with a specific mental and emotional state. There is a combination of five remedies designed for difficult and demanding situations which he called the Rescue Remedy. The Bach Flower Remedies represent a complete system of healing directed at the emotional and mental states. They are used in combination to address a variety of emotional and mental conditions.


Two people with the same physical illness such as arthritis or chronic back pain may benefit from quite different Bach Flower Remedies. One person may be resigned to the illness, while the other may be impatient with it. One may suffer from a loss of a parent, another might be overwhelmed with too much work which will also effect the healing process. Different remedies will be appropriate in each case.


By taking the remedies negative attitudes are not suppressed, but are transformed into positive ones. The remedies help to stimulate one’s potential for self-healing and free the body and mind to fully engage in fighting the disease and stress. A person doesn’t have to be physically ill to benefit from the Bach Flower Remedies. The remedies are also invaluable in times of stress, high demands and difficulties to restore balance before physical symptoms appear.


The Bach Flower Remedies are gentle, safe and non-toxic. They are often used in addition to other forms of treatment and do not interfere with them. The Bach Flower Remedies are manufactured in the UK, under strict guidelines for safety and purity and are available in 66 countries worldwide.
