What Are Bach Flower Remedies?

Bach Flower Remedies are a natural system of healing developed by Dr Edward Bach, a renowned British physician, bacteriologist, and homeopath, in the 1930s. Dr Bach believed that imbalances in our emotional wellbeing were the underlying cause of many physical ailments. To address these imbalances, he developed a system of 38 flower essences derived from specific plants and trees, each corresponding to a different emotional state or personality trait.

The Bach Flower Remedies are prepared by infusing flowers in spring water and then preserved in a solution of brandy. They are considered safe and gentle, suitable for people of all ages, including children and pets. The remedies work by energetically rebalancing negative emotions and restoring emotional harmony, which in turn can have positive effects on overall well-being. 

Selecting the right Bach Flower Remedy for you involves identifying the emotional state or personality trait that best describes your current emotions. The remedies can be taken orally, added to water, or applied topically in some instances. The recommended dose is 4 drops, 4 times a day minimum when you combine remedies into a bottle. You can’t overdose on flower remedies so you can follow your intuition.

It's important to note that Bach Flower Remedies do not treat specific physical ailments directly but aim to restore emotional balance, which can have positive effects on overall wellbeing. They are often used as complementary therapies alongside other conventional or alternative treatments.

Introducing Cerato, Scleranthus, and Wild Oat Bach Flower Remedies

Within the expansive realm of Bach Flower Remedies, Cerato, Scleranthus, and Wild Oat are the remedies most associated with decision making. These three remedies address specific challenges and emotional states that can hinder our ability to make clear choices and follow our true path. Here we explore each one in detail.

At Mindful Remedies we offer the ability to create your own bespoke bottle of Bach flower remedies. If any or all of these remedies resonate with you, you can add them to a personalised treatment bottle using the buttons below.

Cerato: Trusting Your Intuition

Cerato is known for its ability to enhance intuition and self-trust. When faced with decision-making dilemmas, individuals often seek external validation and advice, losing touch with their inner wisdom. Cerato helps to reconnect with that inner voice, helping to instil confidence in making choices. It assists in quieting the mind's noise and allows for a deeper understanding of oneself, fostering a sense of trust in personal judgment.

Using Cerato is particularly beneficial for individuals who tend to second-guess themselves, constantly seeking the opinions of others, not trusting their intuition. By restoring self-assurance and tuning into intuition, this remedy empowers individuals to make decisions aligned with their authentic selves.

Scleranthus: Balancing Indecision

Scleranthus promotes inner balance, stability and the ability to make choices more efficiently. When faced with indecision, individuals may find it challenging to make choices or stick to a particular course of action. Scleranthus aids in achieving emotional balance and stability, which is especially valuable in situations where preferences fluctuate rapidly, causing confusion. Whether it's selecting between two job opportunities or deciding on a holiday destination Scleranthus can provide the necessary grounding to make more efficient and confident decisions.

Scleranthus is especially helpful for those who oscillate between different options, experiencing sudden shifts in preferences. It brings emotional stability, enabling individuals to weigh alternatives without feeling overwhelmed or torn. Scleranthus supports a clearer thought process and facilitates the ability to arrive at well-considered decisions.

Wild Oat: Finding Your True Calling

While decision making often revolves around practical choices, there are times when individuals face more profound dilemmas related to life's purpose and direction. Wild Oat is particularly valuable in such situations, as it helps individuals gain clarity and find their true calling. It’s helpful for people who may feel bored and unfulfilled by life currently but are not sure which direction to turn.

When experiencing a sense of restlessness or uncertainty about life's path, Wild Oat provides support by aligning one's desires and aspirations with their innate talents and abilities. This remedy assists in exploring various options and encourages individuals to embrace new opportunities. By connecting with one's deeper aspirations, Wild Oat enables decision making that leads to a fulfilling and purpose-driven life.
