The Bach® Flower Remedies are 100% safe and natural and work in conjunction with herbs, homeopathy and medications. They are safe for everyone, including children, pregnant women, pets, elderly and even plants.
How to Take the Remedies
The remedies are easy to take.
Add two drops of each chosen remedy to a glass of water.
Sip from it as often as you want, but at least four times a day for longer-term issues.
For convenience when taking several remedies at once, add two drops of each chosen remedy to an empty 30ml dropper bottle. Top up with mineral water, adding a teaspoonful of brandy or cider vinegar as a preservative if you wish. From this bottle take four drops at least four times a day. 30ml dropper bottles can be bought ready- to-use from your Bach™ Original Flower Remedies stockist.
For immediate use you can take the remedies undiluted direct from the stock bottle. Just drip two drops on your tongue, and repeat as necessary.
You can use the remedies externally. Just a few drops on the lips, temples or pulse points is effective and allows for first-aid use.
When using Rescue Remedy® use double the amount you would use for the single remedies. Put four drops of Rescue on your tongue or into your glass of water or Remedy treatment bottle, rather than two.
Take your Bach™ Original Flower Remedies as often as you need to. They are also safe for young children. If you are pregnant please consult your doctor or midwife.
NOTE: Remember that the stock remedies are preserved in alcohol. Dilute the remedies or use them externally if this is an issue.
How the Remedies are Made
The Sun Method
Dr Bach used this method to make 20 of the remedies, most of which are delicate flowers and bloom in the height of summer. Flower heads are floated on water in a glass bowl and left in full sunlight for three hours. On a busy remedy-making day, there might be as many as six or seven bowls in the sun. Some of the flowers are only in bloom for a day or two, so timing is crucial.
The Boiling Method
Dr Bach used this method to prepare the remaining 18 remedies, from trees, bushes and plants, most of which flower in the early part of the year. These are picked, boiled in a saucepan and left in the pan to cool outdoors.
Step Two: The flowers are removed from the potentised water, which is then filtered and mixed with an equal part of 40% proof brandy, this makes the Mother Tincture. The brandy acts purely as a preservative for the remedy and is non-active ingredient.
Step Three: The Mother Tinctures arrive at the Nelsons bottling plant in Wimbledon, South London. To make the individual stock bottles you buy in shops, the Mother Tincture is added to 27% grape alcohol. The stock bottles are then packed up, sealed for safety and quality and dispatched to stores and countries around the world.
