A Little Bit About Flower Remedies

Well hello again!

It’s been quite a year for the entire world between March 2020 and March 2021. Health and healing have understandably topped many peoples list of priorities, including mine. Rising to the top of this list was also the importance of mental wellbeing. The stress of a pandemic and lockdowns have taken their toll on our collective human mental health.

I turned to my long-term support system – the Bach Flower Remedies – to help me cope with the last 12 months. They have been my companions since the early 1990’s when I first discovered Rescue Remedy. I was suffering from anxiety and needed something natural and gentle that would support my body in regaining its natural equilibrium.

If you’ve ever used “Rescue Remedy” then you’ll be aware of the power of these gentle helpers. The remedies work holistically, treating our emotional responses to life. Rather than “cure” a single physical symptom, the remedies gently re-balance our emotional states; helping us to find balance in mind, spirit and body.  Most people simply take the remedies daily for a few weeks, sometimes months, depending on the emotional issues you want to resolve.

They were created by Dr Edward Bach, a Harley Street doctor who wanted to heal his patients holistically, rather than addressing the surface symptoms each time. He began creating the system back in the 1920’s and by the end of the 1930’s he had crafted all 38 individual remedies.

I work with all 38 in the range and they are simply small bottles of individually preserved plant energies (the life force of each plant). The remedies work on a vibrational level, very similar to homeopathy, reiki healing and music/sound therapy. You could say that the remedies change our “internal soundtrack” from a melody that isn’t ours to one that is.  Over time, they bring us back to the best version of our natural selves.

They are super-safe, non-toxic and can be used alongside all medical treatments. There is no danger of overdosing and if you choose the “wrong” remedy, it will do you no harm at all (it will simply have no effect!). They are non-addictive and non-habit forming (most people just forget to take them when they no longer need them).

They can also be given to babies, children, the elderly, animals and plants.  No actual plant fibre or protein is left behind in the liquid, so there is no danger of any allergy particles remaining in the tinctures. (It is purely the potent ‘life force’ or ‘energy imprint’ of the plant that remains).

Having fallen in love with the remedies, I went on to train as a Bach Practitioner at The Bach Centre in Oxfordshire some years ago. I have used them as part of my life and professional healing work ever since.

Until next time,

Love and botanical blessings,
