Bach Flower Therapy

Dr Bach was an English medical doctor and Homoeopath in the 1930’s who developed a set of 38 flower essences, "The Bach Flower Remedies".

Bach felt that "disease" is a sign of imbalance in one's emotions, attitudes and life directions. His philosophy was “Treat the patient, not the disease; the cause, not the effect."

Each of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies are indicated for a particular characteristic or emotional state.
