About Bach Flower Remedies
Dr Edward Bach was a Physician and Homeopath who spent his life searching for the purest methods of healing. Dr Bach discovered 38 remedies which he split into seven different groups and can be combined to suit the individual. The flower remedies are made from wild plants, trees and bushes. They work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms and are a gentle way to manage your emotions and rediscover the positive side of ourselves.
Each of the 38 Bach™ Original Flower Remedies is unique and helps to treat a different emotion. Most people find it reasonably easy to select their own remedies. All you need to do is find the remedy (or remedies) that seems to reflect your situation, mood or personality the best. You can mix up to seven together at a time. All the states described are everyday human emotions that we all feel from time to time. Even the most negative state has a corresponding positive quality that shows us what we can be when we are fully ourselves.

Why is there alcohol in Bach Original Flower Remedies?
Dr Bach used alcohol in his preparations, usually brandy, for its preservative properties. It is there to guard against microbial contamination which could otherwise grow in the water-based remedies. The alcohol is not an active ingredient. In the early days when chemists were supplied with mother tinctures to prepare the stock remedies, they used either rectified spirit or pure alcohol. Nora Weeks explained: 'In preparing the stock bottles, including the Rescue Remedy, at Mount Vernon, we use brandy instead of rectified spirit added by the chemists. The brandy, like the rectified spirit, is used only as a preservative and makes no difference whatever to the strength or efficiency of the remedy.'
How quickly will the remedies start to make a difference?
For some people it can be immediately, for others it might take a little longer depending on the issues being treated. Each case is unique.
Can the remedies only be added to water?
You can add the remedies to tea, coffee, fizzy drinks etc. They differ to homeopathic remedies in this respect. Hot drinks will cause the alcohol to evaporate but the flower essence will remain in the drink.
Are there any side effects from using the remedies?
Whilst the Bach Flower remedies are considered to be free from side effects, if you notice anything different when using the remedies or experience any additional symptoms please stop taking the remedies and speak to either your doctor or a Registered Bach Flower Practitioner.
Do the remedies work faster if I don't dilute them?
There is no difference in potency or speed of effect between taking the four drops from a treatment bottle and taking neat stock remedy. The brandy in the stock bottle will, however, taste stronger and this psychologically may give the impression that the essences are stronger. This isn't the case.
Can I take Bach Original Flower Remedies with other medicine?
As always, if you are taking prescribed medication it is advisable for you to speak with your doctor before using the Bach Flower Remedies (or other forms of self purchased treatments) and and follow the advice given.
How many remedies can I use at once?
No more than seven should be used. You may feel as if you need more than this, but you should try to pinpoint six or seven at the most. Try to pinpoint how you are feeling at the moment, then match the exact mood you're in with the appropriate remedy. Any past emotions can be treated once you have dealt with the present ones.
