Making Flower Essences

The whole principle of healing by this method is so simple it can be understood by almost everyone, and even the very herbs themselves can be gathered and prepared by any who take delight in such.”  Edward Bach Masonic Lecture 1936

The above is a quote for one of Doctor Bach’s lectures, given the year he died.

Doctor Bach wanted us all to make our own remedies. The early newsletters from the Bach Centre give full instructions on how to make them, and then a book was published which contained instructions for all 38 flowers.

Flower Essences individually have a specific negativity  for which they are recommended e.g. aspen for unknown fears, Mimulus for fear, gentian for depression,  White chestnut for a busy head. You will recognise many of the emotional states described within yourself and family. For many people who perhaps find it difficult to describe what they feel, the remedies can provide a way of sorting them out and understanding them.

Once the 38 remedies were complete, Doctor Bach looked for a way to divide them into workable groups so that people might find them easier to use. Coming to them afresh, 38 different emotional states can be very complex to absorb.
