Bach Flower:Complementary, Alternative and Holistic Health Listing


The Bach Flower 'Essences

What are the Bach Flower Essences?
There are 38 Essences for specific emotional and mental states, plus a 39th, the Rescue Remedy, a composite of 5 remedies designed for emergencies. 37 of the 38 are based on single wild flowers and tree blossoms, all growing naturally in the British Isles, apart from Vine, Olive and Cerato. The exception Rock Water, is made from water from a natural spring with healing properties, near Mount Vernon, England.


How do they work?
Bach Flower Essences, like other forms of natural medicine, take effect through treating the individual, not disease, or the symptoms of disease. They are not prescribed to cure physical illness or disease. They work specifically on the emotional/spiritual conditions of the person concerned. The Essences do not interfere with any forms of medical intervention, and can be taken in addition to all other forms of treatment.'
Dr. Edward Bach, M.D., a physician and Homeopath well ahead of his time said, "Health is our heritage, our right. It is the complete and full union between soul, mind and body; and this is not a difficult far-away ideal to attain, but one so easy and natural that many of us have overlooked it." He also said healing depended on four factors." 1). The realization of the Divinity within us, and our consequent knowledge that we have the ability to overcome all harm 2). The knowledge that disease is due to disharmony between our personality and our soul. 3). Our desire and ability to discover the fault that is causing the conflict. 4). The removal of that fault by our developing the opposite virtue".
Two people, for example, with arthritis, may benefit from quite different essences. One may be resigned to their illness, while the other may be impatient with it, so different essences will be appropriate to each person. Each flower used has a specific, emotionally healing effect. They raise our very natures and bring us peace and they relieve our sufferings.
People do not have to be physically ill to benefit from the Essences. Many of us go through times of difficulty and fatigue when negativity creeps in; at these times the Essences are invaluable in restoring the balance before physical symptoms appear.
