Bach flower essences are extracts from flowers which have a positive effect on emotional imbalances, unwanted habits, and mood swings such as fear, dejection, lack of self-confidence, stress and worrying.
The essences get their name from Dr. Edward Bach (1886 – 1936) a medical doctor, homeopath and a bacteriologist who discovered and developed this healing method at the beginning of the last century. For nearly 100 years these flower essences have proved useful for children as well as adults for all kinds of emotional and mental concerns.
Sleep problems, fear of failure, lack of confidence, exam fear, sadness, guilt, and challenges with focus and concentration are only a few examples where Bach Flower Essences have been successfully used with good results.
How do Bach flower essences work?
Dr. Bach created his remedies from the buds of specific flowering plants. There are 38 different Bach Flower Essences, each of them has a different quality and acts on a specific emotional state.
For instance a person with a low self-esteem will, after taking specific flower essences, start to believe in him or herself again and will be more self-confident dealing with the day-to-day things. Likewise, a person who is having trouble letting go of a past relationship or memory will, after taking a specific remedy, will feel less nostalgic and begin to live more in the present.
Bach Flowers do not suppress negative emotions, rather turn them into the opposite positive emotional state. For example, fear of failure into self-confidence or impatience into calmness and tranquillity.
Bach Flower Essences are 100 % natural and can successfully be used by children and adults.
They are completely safe and harmless. There are no side effects, you cannot over dose and they are not addictive. They can be used in combination with other medication and/or other forms of treatment including homeopathy without interference.
