Bach Flower Remedies are suitable for everyone; adults, children, babies and pets.
Yes they are safe to take and they have no side effects. They contain only minute traces of actual physical substance and are primarily vibrational in nature. This means that they are non-toxic and have no direct impact on the body’s biochemistry. Which means they are safe for children, babies and pets.
If you are experiencing a serious mental or emotional condition, or a known physical medical problem, you should seek the care or advice of a qualified health practitioner. Bach Flower Remedies are not an alternative to allopathic medicine.
They can be taken in many ways, straight from the stock bottle, take 2 drops onto your tongue, or place two drops in some water as needed.
If taken from a dosage bottle (mix combination) then take 4 drops, 4 times a day.
They can be placed in misting sprayers, in a cream base, or in baths.
Dr Bach would often tailor mixes of essences, recommending a maximum of 7 remedies to be combined into a personal mix.
Bach flower remedies are safe, with no known side effects. However I do suggest you always check with your healthcare professional.
Yes they can, but I use the non alcohol version made with vegetable glycerin that I purchase from the Bach Center in the UK.
Sorry, no I don't, I do not hold a trade license to sell Bach Flower remedies. In most countries they can be purchased from a chemist or online store. Contact the Bach center www.bachcentre.com and they will be happy to help.
They are both called 'Essence', but they are different in the way they are made and used.
Essential oils are from a plant extract, usually made by steam distillation or cold-pressing, yielding volatile oils. They are a physical extract, often needing large quantities of plant materials and generally used for physical conditions, with secondary effects on the emotions.
Flower essences are energetic remedies, made only from the flower of the plant at the precise moment of blossoming. They are water-based infusions, preserved with brandy and are generally used for emotional conditions, with secondary effects on the physical body.
Flower essences and traditional herbal remedies are both made from natural plant substances, but are made and used in different ways.
Herbal remedies are made from many plant parts by a number of extraction methods, including alcohol tincture, and are designed and marketed to address physical ailments and symptoms.
Flower essences are only made from fresh blossoms and only by solar infusion or decoction (boiling) and are physically dilute, so they work vibrationally, impacting the vital energy and emotions, and affecting the physical body indirectly.
Yes they have some similarities, both types of remedies are based on energetic, rather than biochemical principles, and are physically dilute. They both work on the whole person: body and mind. Both modalities work with the person’s healing process rather than by suppressing symptoms.
There are differences too, homeopathic remedies are made by the Law of Similars — Like Cures Like. Flower essences balance and integrate polarities within the individual.
Homeopathic remedies can be made from a variety of plant parts, or from other mineral, animal, or human substances, whereas Flower essences are made exclusively from the fresh blossoms of plants.
Even when made from flowers, homeopathic remedies are prepared differently. The mother substance of a homeopathic remedy from a plant is a tincture (an alcohol extraction), whereas flower essences are prepared in water, and only later preserved with alcohol. Flower essence mother substances are always prepared in a living elemental matrix of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.
Flower essences are safe to use for home care by beginners, as well as by experienced health practitioners. High potency homeopathic remedies, which can strongly impact mental and emotional states, need to be used by experienced and trained health practitioners.
