Dr Bach devoted his life to finding a safe, simple and effective answer to people's distress. Through research and the rigorous study of human nature, he became convinced that at the heart of all the distress and disease lay an imbalance in emotional outlook and that our fear, suspicion, anger, greed, discouragement and other negative feelings may stand in the way of our contentment, joy, inner peace and good health.
He went onto develop 38 plant and flower remedies which correct and rebalance the body's energies and emotions. These are divided into 7 headings:
- For fear -
Rock Rose, Mimulus, Cherry Plum, Aspen & Red Chestnut
- For Uncertainty -
Cerato, Scleranthus, Gentian, Gorse, Hornbeam & Wild Oat
- For Insufficient Interest in Present Circumstances -
Clematis, Honeysuckle, Wild Rose, Olive, White Chestnut, Mustard & Chestnut Bud.
- For Loneliness -
Water Violet, Impatiens, & Heather
- For Over-Sensitivity to Influences and Ideas -
Agrimony, Centaury, Walnut, & Holly.
- For Despondency or Despair
Larch, Pine, Elm, Sweet Chestnut, Star of Bethlehem, Willow, Oak & Crab Apple.
- Over-Care for Welfare of Others -
Chicory, Vervain, Vine, Beech & Rock Water
The Bach Flower Remedies are known worldwide. The Rescue Remedy mix can even be purchased now in the medication section of my local supermarket here in Melbourne/Australia. The Rescue Remedy mix contains the Flower Essence Rock Rose, Star of Bethlehem, Impatiens and Clematis. But there are 38 different Flower Essences which can be mixed in a variety of combinations, depending on what the person needs.
To find the individual Remedies in Melbourne in shops is proving increasingly difficult and to buy online up to 7 Remedies and purchase a Remedy bottle etc. can be complicated and quite costly. Since I completed my Diploma in Flower Essences in 2005 I use the Bach Remedies diligently with my own clients and family. Old people, middle aged people, young people and children all love and experience the balancing and helping effects of this simple system of healing.

Since Bach, the work spread, fulfilling the need for remedies that would help people deal with the issues of the 21st century, resulting in hundreds of different remedies including essences produced from crystals and shells each unique in its healing power.
Negative emotions and thoughts, and even diseases are treated by choosing a remedy to match the temperament of the patient and their current state of mind. They are not used directly for physical complaints but for the sufferer's worry and anxiety, as these states of mind are seen as primary causes of illness. The essences work on a vibrational level, allowing the life force to flow more freely as harmony is restored to the body.
Up to seven remedies may be chosen and these are combined to make an individual preparation.
The 38 Bach Remedies are prepared from wild flowers and the blossoms of trees, except for one remedy that is made of water from a healing well. The remedies come as a liquid, preserved in brandy. The remedies can be taken individually, or up to 7 remedies can be combined together at the same time. They are taken by diluting two drops of each remedy into a 30ml dropper bottle, topped up with mineral water, and then taken as four drops four times a day. Alternatively, the two drops can be added to a glass of water, and sipped 4 times a day. There is only one Bach Flower Remedy which is a pre-mix and it is called "Rescue Remedy". The Rescue Remedy was devised by Dr. Bach to be used mainly in emergency situations or after an accident, physical injury or shock. The Rescue Remedy is made up of five of the Bach remedies: Clematis for faintness, drowsiness and sleepiness; Star of Bethlehem for shock; Rock Rose for extreme fear of terror; Impatiens for irritation and frustration; and Cherry Plum for extreme mental pressure.
As Dr Bach, the inventor says in his book Heal Thyself,
"Just as God in His mercy has given us food to eat, so has He placed amongst the herbs of the fields beautiful plants to heal us when we are sick. These are there to extend a helping hand to man in those darker hours of forgetfulness when he loses sight of his Divinity, and allows the cloud of fear or pain to obscure his vision."
"There is no true healing unless there is a change in outlook, peace of mind, and inner happiness" Dr Edward Bach, 1934
