What are Bach Flower Remedies?

The Bach Flower Remedies were developed about 80 years ago by Dr. Edward Bach, a British Homeopath.

The remedies are hand produced in England using natural spring water infused with wild flowers.

Bach Flower remedies work on the emotions and are helpful for anxiety, depression, fears, jealousy, low self-esteem, worries and trauma.

The Bach flower drops can be placed directly under the tongue or added to a glass of water.

Bach Flower Remedies work alongside herbs, homeopathy and medications, and are safe for everyone, including children and pets.

The remedies can be used individually or mixed together.
