Bach Flower Essences

Bach Flower Essences, derived from English flowering plants, were formulated by Dr. Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician, and pathologist, in the 1930s.

Dr. Bach believed that disease originated with the mood and temperament of the patient. He identified seven categories of negative states of mind, and developed a range of 38 flower essences.

Each essence is associated with a basic human emotion. Negative emotions and thoughts are treated by choosing an essence, or 'remedy', to match the temperament of the patient and their current state of mind. The essences are not used directly for physical complaints but rather for the sufferer's worry and anxiety, as these states of mind are seen as the primary causes of illness.
