With so much going on around us, it’s easy for our hectic lives to take over at times. BACH® ORIGINAL FLOWER REMEDIES help to balance your emotions and fulfil your potential. But what are BACH® flower essences?
The essences were developed more than 80 years ago by Dr. Edward Bach, a noted physician and homeopath, who believed that the key to good health was by emotional harmony. By 1936 he identified 38 flower essences, each one derived from a different wild flower, plant or tree, and each corresponding to a specific emotion.
Dr. Bach categorised the 38 essences in seven groupings. They are based on emotions. We have modernised the names to help make it easier:
|COLOUR||MODERN EMOTIONAL GROUP||TRADITIONAL EMOTIONAL GROUP|
|Face Your Fears||Fear|
|Know Your Mind||Uncertainty|
|Live the Day||Insufficient interest in present circumstances|
|Reach Out to Others||Loneliness|
|Stand Your Ground||Oversensitivity to influences and ideas|
|Find Joy & Hope||Despondency and despair|
|Live & Let Live||Overcare for the welfare of others|
Dr. Bach believed the complete system, which capture the positive potential of the plants they’re created from, offered a holistic approach to achieving emotional balance. The system is designed so that the essences can be tailored to meet each person’s individual needs; so that they can be taken individually, or in combination.
