Bach flower essences

Dr Edward Bach

Dr Edward Bach, a famous English physician revived the art of healing with flower essences in the 1930s. He developed the Bach Flower Remedies when he was working as a homeopathic practitioner in Oxford, England. Bach devoted the last years of his life to researching and developing his remedies.

Chestnut BudChestnut Bud - failure to learn from mistakes

Dr Bach believed that diseases of the body are the result of imbalances or negativity at the level of the soul. By correcting the problem here, healing would result on all levels. There were originally thirty-eight Bach Flower Remedies, which at the time Dr Bach felt would correct all possible imbalances. There are remedies, which he found would heal the state of anger, and open the heart, and remedies that deal with a variety of other emotions from lack of confidence to over-enthusiasm and impatience.

MimulusMimulus - fear of known things

The flowers are gathered from nature when they are just at the point of perfection and it is important that the flowers are free from any toxins and preservatives. Remedies are made by placing the flowers in a bowl of spring water and leaving it out in the sun. After a few hours when the water 'sparkles', the flower's essence is passed into the water and it is preserved with alcohol to make a mother tincture. The resulting remedy is then diluted in spring water to make a solution that can be taken by anybody: adults, children the elderly or animals.

Rescue Remedy

The Bach Flower Essences are still widely used all over the world. The most famous one is Rescue Remedy for accidents, or sudden illness when the patient feels frightened.

Wild RoseWild Rose - drifting, resignation, apathy

Since they were created in the 1930s, society has changed and developed a great deal. Life has become faster. There is much more information to digest. The family support network is not as strong as it used to be. People are more isolated, they spend much more time behind computers and are weaker in faith, but enjoy more individual 'freedom'. Pollution, radiation and electro-smog have increased, and the patterns of disease have changed.

Australian Bush Flower Essences

Australian Bush Flower Essences

The Bush Flower set from Australia is a new range that has been specifically created to meet our modern needs.

Ian White B.Sc.,N.D.,D.B.M
Founder of the Australian Bush Flower Essences

Ian White, a naturopath, grew up in the Australian bush and comes from a long line of herbalists. As a young boy his grandmother, like her mother before her, specialised in using Australian plants and would often take him into the bush. From her deep understanding she would point out the many healing plants and flowers. Ian learned a profound respect for nature through her, and he too started working with native plants and became a practitioner.

BoabBoab - personal freedom by releasing family patterns

With its sunny climate, fertile soil and relatively little pollution, it is no wonder that Australia has among the highest number of flowering plants in the world. They are breathtakingly beautiful and vibrant, which makes them powerful for healing purposes.

As Khalil Gibran says in 'The Prophet': "No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge." The true healer is a catalyst for change and that is what flower essences are about. They help rebalance mind, body and spirit. Physical health is related to internal harmony, so once that is established the rest will follow.
