A Word About Bach Flower Remedies

Related image
Bach Flower Remedies are dilutions of flower material developed by Edward Bach an English physician and homeopath in the 1930s. The remedies are used primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress.
The remedies contain a very small amount of flower material in a 50:50 solution of water and brandy. Because the remedies are extremely dilute they do not have a characteristic scent or taste of the plant. Vendors state that the remedies contain "energetic" nature of the flower and that this can be transmitted to the user.
There are 38 original Bach Flower Remedies, also called the Flower Essences or Bach Remedies. Unlike Homeopathic or Biochemic remedies, the flower remedies do not have potencies.
