Bach Flower Remedies, discovered by Dr Edward Bach, are made by using parts of plants that have healing vibration energy. The healing vibration energy is transferred into water using either the Sun method or the Boiling method. The energized water is then made into mother tincture. The mother tincture is then diluted to make stock remedies. There are 38 Bach Flower Remedies, each directed at a particular characteristic or emotional state. With the 38 remedies, there are nearly 293 million available combinations. There is no personality, emotional states or moods that cannot be addressed by the remedies. This complete system is timeless, applicable for all times.
Dr. Edward Bach was a British Physician, who began to see disease as an end product, a final stage, a physical manifestation of unhappiness, fear and worry. He therefore began to look to nature to find healing flowers. Over a period of years Dr. Bach found 38 healing flowers and plants that with the right preparation became the 38 Bach Flower Remedies. These remedies are enough to remove all negative emotional problems.

Illness is the result of disharmony between soul and mind. Any disturbance of the mind, such as continued worry, fear or depression, would not only result in lack of peace and serenity, but would be communicated to the physical body as illness or physical ailments. So long as there is balance and harmony within oneself, all is joy and peace, happiness and health. The Bach Flower Remedies do not treat physical complaints directly. Instead they help by treating the negative emotional states that provoke or worsen illnesses. This means the way to select the correct remedies is always to think about the sort of person you are and about your current emotional state.
