What is it?

A holistic medicine, treating the person rather than the disease. Each of the 38 remedies discovered by Dr Edward Bach is directed at a particular characteristic or emotional state. Take a look at Dr Bach’s own descriptions below to find one that best describes the way you’re feeling.

How to use flower remedies

Bach flower remedies were created to address emotional problems and are a holistic form of medicine that treats the person rather than the disease. There are 38 different remedies (as well as Rescue Remedy), which can be taken individually or in combination, although it’s not recommended to combine more than seven.

The solution should be mixed in a 30ml dropper bottle. Put in two drops of each remedy, then top up with mineral water. You can then take four drops straight from the bottle, dissolved on or under the tongue four times a day, or you can put two drops of each remedy into a glass of water and sip from this throughout the day.

If you wish, you can add the remedies to boiling water or a hot drink such as tea or coffee. This will evaporate some of the alcohol, but won’t affect the potency of the remedy.
