Bach Flower Elixirs

Dr. Edward Bach and his Flower Remedies are a wondrous resource that incorporates flower power and additional botanicals via custom mixed tinctures. He succinctly stated that our well-being is a reflection of our happiness.

“We can judge our health by our happiness" wrote Dr. Edward Bach in his botanical research entitled, The Original Writings

Developed in 1930’s by the English homeopath, Dr. Edward Bach, he created (38) Original botanical remedies that are oldies but goodies. “Bach Flower Remedies (BFRs) are solutions synthesized with grape brandy and water that combines extreme dilutions of flower extract(s).

The original Bach Flower Remedies are a safe and natural method of healing that was developed from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by relieving negative emotions, such as fear, worry, hatred and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of our being as a whole.

Bach Flower Remedies assists in restoring peace and harmony to the individual; thus, the body is free to heal itself. Bach Flower Remedies are made from wild flowers and are safe for the whole family including pets”

“Bach believed that dis-ease was the result of conflict between the purpose(s) of the soul and a person’s actions and outlook. This internal war, according to Bach, leads to negative moods and to "energy blocking", which initiates a lack of "harmony", thus leading to physical dis-ease.”[13][14]:9–10

“Bach's work combined scientific methodology with higher knowing (ie. intuition, inner guidance and the world of un-seen or non-physical energy which is believed to account for 90% of the total). He realized the potency of morning sunlight passing through dew-drops on flower petals which transferred high-resonant energy (ie. a potent, healing remedy from the flower as it is imbued with water[17] ).
