More about Bach flower remedies

What are Bach flower remedies?

Bach flower remedies are a type of alternative medicine that uses plant extracts to treat various emotional conditions. The remedies were developed by English physician Edward Bach in the 1930s, and each remedy is associated with a specific emotion or condition. The remedies are prepared by placing flowers in water and allowing the sun to energise the water with the flower's vibrational energy. The resulting solution is then taken orally. Bach flower remedies are said to work by restoring balance to the body's energy system. This, in turn, helps the body to heal itself. Because they are safe and non-toxic, Bach flower remedies can be used by people of all ages, including children and pregnant women.
