The history of Dr. Bach's flower remedies
Various flower remedies were developed by Dr. Edward Bach (1886 - 1936), a Harley Street Clinic physician and prominent, bacteriologist, homeopath, and researcher. Dr. Bach believed that mental attitude plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. After leaving London in 1930, Dr. Bach explored the English countryside in search of plant-based remedies for several years. In 1934, he decided to settle down and create a center for his work, choosing for its location Mount Vernon, a small cottage in Sotwell, Oxfordshire. He spent the last years of his life at Mount Vernon, where he completed his research. Today, Mount Vernon is better known as the Bach Centre, and its present custodians continue to prepare the mother tinctures, or the first process in making the Bach remedies, often using plants from the same locales that Dr. Bach identified in the 1930s.
Dr. Bach identified 38 basic negative states of mind, and created a corresponding plant- or flower-based remedy for each one. He sought a safe, simple, and pure method of healing his patients that would take into consideration their individual mental and emotional makeup. He found that certain flower essences stimulated self-healing in his patients by clearing the negative emotional factors that affected their state of health.
Dr. Bach's remedies are derived from non-poisonous plants, shrubs, and trees, and are prepared by heating the flowers in spring water with sunlight, or boiling them to extract their healing essences. These flower essences are completely safe, non-toxic, non-addictive, and may be used in conjunction with any other conventional medical or holistic treatment. While Bach essences are not taken for physical symptoms, the body often heals itself once emotional balance is restored.
Dr. Bach's flower remedies target the mental / emotional state of an individual,
helping to clear negative emotions, mindsets, attitudes, and personality
traits that not only impede the body?s ability to heal itself, but also
create roadblocks to inner peace and happiness. Bach remedies are useful
in dealing with stress, fear and anxiety, depression, anger and resentment,
excessive worry, low self-esteem, guilt, and loneliness.
