About Bach Essences

Dr Bach developed 38 individual flower remedies to help support our emotional state.  He believed that our emotional responses were the root cause of physical health problems. 

Dr Bach grouped the remedies into those associated with particular personality types (“Twelve Healers”), those related to habituated conditions (“Seven Helpers”) and those that support emotional responses to traumatic events (“Second Nineteen”).  Individual essences are selected from one or more groups as required.

Dr Bach and flower remedies

Edward Bach was born in Moseley, near Birmingham, in 1886 and trained as a doctor in London. For several years he worked investigating the role of bacteriology in chronic disease. His researches led him to recognise that there were clear personality types that related to the various patterns of ill health, irrespective of the physical symptoms being presented by the patient. Working with vaccine therapy and later with homeopathic remedies, he moved towards the discovery of flower remedies. These he felt could help to harmonise the emotional imbalances that he came to see as the real cause of physical illness.
