Bach Flower Remedies Definition

Bach Flower Remedies: These were developed by Dr. Edward Bach, an English physician in the 1800's. He believed that the underlying emotional condition of patients was a major contributor to their state of dis-ease. After researching the healing properties of wildflowers and herbs, Bach identified 12 "Healers" and 26 "Helpers" for a total of 38 remedies in all which are directed at a particular characteristic or emotional state.

Simply put, to select the remedy needed, a person would only need to think about the sort of person they were and the way they are feeling in relation. A person then simply takes the remedy they feel they need.

Examples of such remedies would include the cherry plum for fear of the mind giving way, elm for overwhelmed by responsibility, honeysuckle for living too much in the past, and holly for hatred, envy, and jealousy.
