WHAT IS BACH FLOWER REMEDY
Bach Flower Remedies are a set of 38 individual flowers & plant essences; each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion. The flower elm for example, is the flower used as a remedy when we are feeling a loss of confidence due to the overwhelming amount of responsibilities we have taken on. Taking elm flowers will help us to dispel these feelings so that we can resume our lives without thought of failure.
The remedies were discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s, when he was a British doctor, bacteriologist, and spiritual writer and he believed that disease was the result of conflict between soul and mind. He advocated for being in harmony with our souls and was determined to help facilitate this process, which birthed the concept of Bach Flowers Remedies.

Some of these emotions that can be balanced using flower remedies are: fear, uncertainty, anxiety, stress, loneliness, sensitivity, lack of interest, moodiness & lack of confidence.
HOW BACH FLOWER IS MADE
Dr. Bach devised two methods to make the Bach Flower Remedies - the sun method, and the boiling method. By putting flowers in natural spring water, manufacturers make flower extracts. Then they boil it or expose it to the sun. The sun method is used for delicate flowers while the boiling method used for the woodier plants, as the heat transfers energy from the flowers to the water in both methods.
