Bach flower remedyFlower essence therapy
A form of alternative healthcare delineated by a British physician, Edward Bach. In Bach therapy, flowers are used to directly address a person’s emotional state and to facilitate both psychological and physiological well-being; by balancing negative feelings and stress, flower remedies can remove the emotional barriers to health and recovery. Bach descibed 38 concoctions, which consist of infusions prepared from freshly-picked, sun-exposed flowers placed in spring water and brandy, which forms a so-called “Mother Essence.”
