Bach Flower Remedies ®

Bach flower remedies were formulated by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930's. Dr. Bach wasn't only known as a regular physician but he was also known as a homeopathic practitioner.

Bach developed these flower remedies with the belief that each flower essence was effective for bringing balance to the emotions, therefore promoting health in the body.

It is important to note that although Bach flower remedies are often associated with homeopathy, they do not follow the same principles or theory. Although they are made from the flower essences of wild plants, trees and bushes, they do not involve the usage of anything toxic.

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.

They are considered a gentle way to manage your emotions and to help maintain a healthy, positive outlook.
