Bach flowers were developed in the 1930s and 40s by Dr. Edward Bach, an English physician who went beyond the traditional teaching of medicine.
He believed that ‘Disease is the direct result of a conflict between our spiritual and mortal selves. Health and happiness result from being in harmony with our own nature and in doing the work for which we are individually suited.’ He studied the plants around him, and developed a technique and theory that linked the flower essences with their vibration and powers to heal emotions within the body.

There are 38 Bach flowers divided into seven emotional groups.  These include:

  • fear,
  • uncertainty,
  • lack of interest in resent circumstances,
  • loneliness,
  • oversensitivity to influences and ideas,
  • despair
  • over-care for welfare of overs.
