Straight from the bottle
Each Bach® essence is ready to be taken straight from the bottle, simply apply two drops directly to your tongue when required.
Mix with water
Whether it is Chicory or Elm or Pine or Walnut you’re using, you can add two drops of your selected essence or personal blend into a glass of still water, and sip at intervals throughout the day or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Make a personal mix
Bach® essences can be mixed to create your own personal combination.
Add 2 drops of each essence (maximum of 7 essences) to a mixing bottle containing still spring water; take 4 drops 4 times a day.
If you’re not sure about which essences to blend, we have an Essence Chooser that can help you choose the right mix for you.
Your personal mix can last between two and three weeks if you keep it in a cool, dry place or in the fridge. However, if you wish to carry your personal mix around with you, add one teaspoon of brandy to the mixing bottle prior to adding the water to help preserve it. Cider vinegar or glycerine can also be substituted for brandy.
