Dr. Bach dreamed of doctors who would understand people as individuals and study human nature rather than test tubes and lab results. And he imagined patients taking charge of their own health by understanding and accepting the needs of their souls, rather than attending to the needs of the body alone.
The Bach Flower Remedies work in conjunction with herbs, homeopathy and medications and are safe for everyone, including children, pregnant women, pets, elderly and even plants.
These are the Original Bach Flower Remedies in 10ml stock bottles containing a 5x dilution of the flower in a grape alcohol solution. They are intended to be used diluted (see 'Directions' tab).
Guide to the Remedies: Each of the 38 flower remedies discovered by Dr Bach is directed at a particular characteristic or emotional state. To select the remedies you need, think about the sort of person you are and the way you are feeling, and compare this with the descriptions for each remedy listed below:
Elm - overwhelmed by responsibility
Hornbeam - tiredness at the thought of doing something
Impatiens - impatience
Larch - lack of self-confidence, feelings of inferiority
Mimulus - fear of known things; blushing, stammering, shyness, timid, sensitive, lack of courage
Olive - exhaustion following mental or physical effort
Walnut - protection from change and unwanted influences
White Chestnut - unwanted thoughts and mental arguments
To get help selecting remedies, we suggest you contact a local Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner.
How to take the remedies
You can take the remedies in several ways, and the instructions here are designed to be easy to remember. Taking larger doses at one time doesn't have a stronger effect; but if you are going through a crisis you can take more frequent doses to get you through it.
The 'glass of water' method
For short-term moods and problems put two drops of each selected remedy in a glass of water. Sip as often as required until relief is obtained.
You can use this method for longer-term problems as well. Just sip from the glass throughout the day, at least four times a day - and keep the glass in the 'fridge or make up a fresh glass each day.
For more chronic problems we recommend making up a treatment bottle, as it is cheaper and will make your precious stock remedies go further. Simply:
Get an empty 30ml bottle with a dropper in the lid
Add to the bottle two drops of each selected remedy
Top the bottle up with still (i.e. not fizzy) mineral water
From this bottle take four drops, at least four times a day
Treatment bottles will last two or three weeks if you keep them cool - in the fridge, for example. If that isn't possible - maybe you live somewhere warm or will be carrying the bottle around in your pocket - add a teaspoon of brandy to the treatment bottle before topping up with water. This will help keep the water from going off. If you don't want to use brandy, use cider vinegar or glycerine instead.
Direct on the tongue
You can also take remedies 'neat', without diluting them. This is the most expensive way to take remedies and tastes strongly of brandy (unless you are using a stock remedy bottled in glycerine etc.), so is not recommended - but it is just as effective.
To make it easy to remember, you take the same number of drops when taking a neat stock remedy as you do when you are mixing remedies in a treatment bottle or glass of water: two drops, direct on the tongue.
Repeat as necessary - for long-term treatments, at least four times a day.
5x dilution of flower extracts in a grape alcohol solution.
