Bach flower remedies

The Bach flower remedies are 38 homeopathically prepared plant and flower based remedies, each one specifically devised to treat a different feeling. These remedies help you to manage the emotional demands of every-day life

They are the original flower remedies made according to the exact traditions of Dr. Edward Bach..

The Bach flower remedies work by stimulating he body's own capacity to heal itself, by balancing negative feelings, helping you to take control and feel good about yourself. They are unique, suitable for all the family, and cannot be harmful.

During a consultation, our therapist will lead you through a simple question & answer session to establish your emotional state, and then prepare an appropriate mixture of flower essences to help relieve your condition.


Dr. Edward Bach, a Harley Street doctor, created the Bach Flower Remedies in the 1930's. His philosophy, 'A healthy mind ensures a healthy body' was ahead of it's time when you consider that today more and more experts are acknowledging the links between our mental and physical health.

Dr. Bach devised a system of seven major emotional groups under which people could be classified, such as Fear, Uncertainty or Loneliness. He categorised 38 negative states of mind under these groups. Then, using his knowledge of homeopathy, Dr. Bach formulated a plant or flower based remedy to treat each of these emotional states - these are the unique Bach Flower Remedies.
