Bach Flower Remedies--Natural Healing From The Inside Out

38 flower remedies make up the Bach system. These target feelings, emotions and behaviors rather than physical ailments, but these problems can cause the manifestation of physical problems. All of the problem areas they focus on affect the way we treat ourselves and others around us. Feeling better about ourselves leads to keeping our bodies in good health. The principal behind the natural healing properties of the Bach Flower Remedies is that a small amount of the essential oils ingested triggers reactions in the body and mind. The oils can be combined to make various remedies.

Developed by Dr Edwin Bach he wanted to make them easy for anyone to diagnose and use. It is simply a matter of thinking about how you feel and selecting a remedy to match. Two drops are placed into a glass of water and sipped as you need it but for at least four times a day. The more serious cases make up a treatment bottle to keep in the fridge. Here is a small selection of remedies from the Bach Flower Remedy website.
