What can you do with Bach Flower remedies?

The flowers used in Bach Flower therapy work on the emotional and mental state of the person. They are able to bring difficult feelings and emotions, which we all suffer from every so often, back into balance. Examples of such emotions are fear, stress, lack of self-confidence, depression, guilt feelings, sorrow,….

 

The flowers will not suppress these emotions, but flood them with their opposite positive side. The following example will illustrate this. The blossoms of Impatiens have the power to bring the emotion of impatience back into balance by bringing peace and patience.

 

Dr. Bach has discovered 38 flowers, each working on a specific emotion. He has divided them into different categories so that they are easier distinguished by their effectiveness. The different categories are: fear, uncertainty, insufficient interest in present circumstances, loneliness, over-sensitive to influences and ideas, despondency or despair and over-care for welfare of others. The group of fear consists of five flower essences, the group of uncertainty of six, the group of insufficient interest in present circumstances has seven flowers, the group of loneliness has three, the group of over-sensitive to influences and ideas has four, the group of despondency or despair has eight and the group of over-care for welfare of others has five flower essences.

 

In fact one of the Bach Flower Essence is not a flower. This is the Bach Flower Rock Water; here spring water is used from a natural source with healing power. The flowers used are all from trees, shrubs and plants that grow in the wild. These blossoms have the most authentic and most powerful energy.

 

By combining the Bach flowers any emotion which is out of balance can be treated. Dr. Bach did mention to only mix a maximum of seven flowers, as it would otherwise weaken the effectiveness of the Bach Flower remedies. Examples where Bach flowers can be applied are hyperactivity & concentration problems, sleep problems, stress, dejection, fears, breathing problems, baby blues, fear of flying,…. In fact you can use them for any problem where an emotion is involved. This makes the Bach Flower remedies a medicine, which can be used to compliment any other medication or therapy. With the advantage that Bach flowers do not influence another medication or therapy in a negative way. They also do not give any side effects and you can not over dose.

 

On the website you will find a number of effective combinations whereby the Bach Flower remedies were selected specifically applicable for that complaint.
