These essences are able to modify the most subtle energy vibrations in the human body. see this video (Part 1) of Bach Flower Remedies, the Journey to Simple Healing. Bach Flower Remedies have been used since the 1930sand are known as an effective and safe form of complementary medicine.

Why flowers? Dr. Edward Bach explained that the life within a plant is concentrated on the flower, and it is also here where the seeds of the plant are located, the seed that allows for a new plant to grow in the land. By using the flowers to prepare these remedies we are acting through the four elements that regulate harmony and balance in this Planet: earth, air, fire, and water.
The only condition present for the person who wants to experiment with Bach Flower healing is to learn to recognize the emotional states, associating them to the remedies and trust them to recover wellness and health. For Dr. Bach’s Biography, check out this post.
Bach considered that these flowers belong to a “higher order”, in the sense that each one of the 38 flowers channels energy vibrations that respond perfectly to the characteristics of human emotions. These flowers relate to the patient with an “energy exchange” that could be defined as a “divine spark” and are classified according to that.
Bach Flowers can be taken by everyone: babies, children, teenagers, pregnant women, elder people, people under medications, sick people, people in a state of coma and even animals and plants. They have no side effects and doesn’t interact with other medications and therapies. Maybe the only ones who are not advised to use traditional preparation are alcoholics since the drops are prepared using a base of brandy and water. In these cases, the drops should be prepared in a base of vinegar and water.
