Bach Flower Essences
Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936) was a British physician, surgeon, bacteriologist, and homeopath. He discovered the healing power of flowers and theorized that the dew that settled on plants had healing properties.
It’s easy to get stressed out and overwhelmed with today’s busy schedules and the constant need to be on the go. Bach flower essences can be a powerful natural ally that helps you stop worrying, feeling frustrated, anxious, sad, or depressed, and addresses fears (both known and unknown). They calm you down when you’re feeling stressed out – however that manifests for you.
The broader purpose of these remedies, or essences, is to support the fight against illness by addressing emotional imbalances. Wherever there is long-term emotional imbalance, physical ailments are sure to follow. Dr. Bach discovered that Flower Essences restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred, and indecision that interfere with the equilibrium of your whole being.
He believed that healing negative emotions helps the body heal itself and grouped emotional imbalances into seven broad psychological causes of illness:
- Lack of interest in present circumstances.
- Oversensitivity to influences and ideas.
- Sadness or despair.
- Cares for others at the expense of self.
