Bach Flower Therapy

website bach flowersThere are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system. All of them were discovered in the 1920s and 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician and pathologist. Bach flower remedies are dilutions of flower material. Bach believed that dew found on flower petals retain healing properties of that plant. The remedies are intended primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress.

Like Dr Bach, we believe that healing on an emotional level has knock-on effects on other levels: a healthy emotional life and a balanced personality will allow your body to find its own natural state of health. Usually we make a composition of up to 6 different remedies custom designed for you. These come in an easy to use dropper bottle where you just put 5 drops under your tongue 3 times a day.

Each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion. Mimulus, for example, is the remedy for when we are anxious or afraid about something specific. Taking the remedy helps us overcome our fear and face it with courage.

Bach Flower Remedies for Pets

Animals have emotions too. They feel fear, anger, jealousy, depression, happiness and joy just like us.
The Bach Flower Remedies are able to help our Animals when they have negative emotions just as they help us when we are emotionally out of balance. Unfortunately, we are not able to ask our pet why it acts depressed, but we do know if it misses a friend or gets overly excited around new people and that is how we select the correct remedies for our animals. That is why many veterinarians recommend Bach Flower Therapy. Look at the chart below and you will be able to find the correct remedy for your pets situation. Simply add to their water.

Each of the 38 remedies discovered by Dr Bach is directed at a particular characteristic or emotional state.
