The Bach Flowers

Bach flower essences are essences extracted from natural flowers energized in mineral water, placed in a glass container under the sun or through the boiling method depending on the time of year. In the preparation of florals, the four elements of Nature are present: earth, fire, air and water. The earth is the place where trees and flowers are born and grow. Fire is the sun that energizes the flowers or flame when using the boiling method. The clean and pure water coming from the source is where the flowers are placed to be energized. And finally, the air that is present all the time and that supplies all living beings with oxygen. The production process of Bach Flower Remedies is extremely simple, as is divine Nature and this healing method.

Of the 38 florals, 37 are based on wildflowers and tree flowers. The only exception is Rock Water which is prepared from water from a natural source with healing properties. The original Bach Flower Remedies have been produced at the Bach Center in London for over 80 years and packaged and distributed to homeopathic pharmacies in different countries by Nelsons. The original florals contain Dr. Bach's signature on the bottle.
