Bach Flower Consultations

We all experience negative states of emotion during our lives. Some pass quickly, some are character traits, others are a result of emergency situations, and some are deeply rooted results of our personal experience.

Bach Flower Essences are a gentle means of restoring emotional balance and encouraging the body’s natural healing process. Developed in the 1930’s by Dr. Edward Bach, a doctor of both traditional and homeopathic medicine, Bach Flower Essences are simple, safe, effective and complimentary to other forms of healing. It was Dr. Bach’s belief that disharmony within oneself was the root cause of disease.

These balancing essences can be used by all ages from babies to seniors and those in palliative care. They are non-addictive catalysts which dispel negative emotions and encourage the positive aspects of the personality.

The 38 Essences can be divided into seven groups, each group dealing with a separate emotional quality: Fear, Uncertainty, Insufficient Interest, Loneliness, Oversensitivity, Despondency or Despair, and Over care for others.

After comprehensive consultation and discussion with the client, a composite blend is made, based on the client’s needs. The drops are taken under the tongue or in any liquid, a minimum of 4 times daily. The effects can be either subtle or immediately apparent. Occasionally the client is not aware of the change until they find they respond to an event in a new positive way.

As the healing journey progresses, the consultation process continues and as the layers of negative emotion is peeled away, the remedy is adjusted to meet the clients evolving emotional state, with the end result being a healthy union between Mind, Body and Spirit.

What are the Bach® Flower Essences?
There are 38 Essences for specific emotional and mental states, plus a 39th, the Rescue Remedy, a composite of 5 remedies designed for emergencies. 37 of the 38 are based on single wild flowers and tree blossoms, all growing naturally in the British Isles, apart from Vine, Olive and Cerato. The exception Rock Water is made from water from a natural spring with healing properties, near Mount Vernon, England.

How do they work?
Bach® Flower Essences, like other forms of natural medicine, take effect through treating the individual, not disease, or the symptoms of disease. They are not prescribed to cure physical illness or disease. They work specifically on the emotional/spiritual conditions of the person concerned. The Essences do not interfere with any forms of medical intervention, and can be taken in addition to all other forms of treatment.

Dr. Edward Bach, M.D., a physician and Homeopath well ahead of his time said, “Health is our heritage, our right. It is the complete and full union between soul, mind and body; and this is not a difficult far-away ideal to attain, but one so easy and natural that many of us have overlooked it.” He also said healing depended on four factors:

  • The realization of the Divinity within us, and our consequent knowledge that we have the ability to overcome all harm.
  • The knowledge that disease is due to disharmony between our personality and our soul.
  • Our desire and ability to discover the fault that is causing the conflict.
  • The removal of that fault by our developing the opposite virtue”.


Two people, for example, with arthritis, may benefit from quite different essences. One may be resigned to their illness, while the other may be impatient with it, so different essences will be appropriate to each person. Each flower used has a specific, emotionally healing effect. They raise our very natures and bring us peace and they relieve our sufferings.

People do not have to be physically ill to benefit from the Essences. Many of us go through times of difficulty and fatigue when negativity creeps in; at these times the Essences are invaluable in restoring the balance before physical symptoms appear.

The Essences are comprised of 7 categories:

Fear
Uncertainty
Lack of Interest in Present Circumstances
Loneliness
Over-sensitivity
Despondency & Despair
Over-care for Others Welfare

Do they have a placebo effect?
No. The Bach Essences are very effective with our babies, pets, and other animals, as well as helping people with little faith who try them as a last resort. Plants also benefit from the essences; gardeners find that they help plants to flourish when re-potting or when moved.

Using the Essences for established problems, the Essences have no adverse side effects.
