How to Take Bach Flower Remedies
Bach flower remedies have become a category in and of themselves much like the category of traditional homeopathic practice.
They are highly effective natural remedies that bring emotions into equilibrium. While there are endless varieties of flower remedies made by various companies, the flower remedies specifically referred to as “Bach Flowers” are limited to 38.
These 38 flower remedies were discovered by Dr. Edward Bach, from flowers in or around the English countryside where the Bach Centre is located. Edward Bach lived and worked in a cottage called Mount Vernon.
There Are Specific Instructions on How to Take the Bach Flower Remedies.
You must first make a Bach flower treatment bottle. For this you will need:
- A glass mixing bottle
- Apple Cider Vinegar, Vegetable Glycerin, or Brandy.
- Natural Spring Water or Mineral Water
- Access to the Bach flower remedy stock bottles
You begin with a sterilized empty mixing bottle, which is typically a 1 oz dropper bottle. Fill it with 50% Spring Water or Mineral Water and 50% Apple Cider Vinegar, Vegetable Glycerin, or Brandy.
Choose Your Selected Bach Flower Remedies.
Choose the flower remedy based on the ailment you want to address. For this example, we will choose Rescue Remedy, Wild Rose, and Gentian. These are highly effective natural remedies.
How Many Bach Flower Remedies Can You Take at Once?
Your personal mix bottle should contain no more than 7 single remedies.
Since Rescue Remedy is already a combination of 5 Bach flower remedies (Star of Bethlehem, Clematis, Rock Rose, Impatiens, and Cherry Plum), we will only add the 2 additional flower remedy stock bottles of Wild Rose and Gentian to the personal mix bottle in this example.
Adding Selected Bach Flower Remedies:
Add two drops of the selected remedy of Wild Rose and two drops of the selected remedy of Gentian to the glass personal mix bottle. Then add four drops of Rescue Remedy.
Since Rescue Remedy is a combination remedy containing 5 of the Bach Flower Remedies, you need to use four drops of it in your personal mix.
This will result in your dosage bottle or Bach flower treatment bottle. This will be your customized personal mix of Bach flower remedies.
This Sounds Tedious, Is There an Easier Way to Take Bach Flower Remedies?
The Flower Apothecary family of products, created by a psychologist and Bach Foundation Practitioner, simplifies this process for you by pre-blending Bach flower remedies so you don’t have to. The Flower Apothecary products work with specific themes like confidence, trauma, fear, etc.
How Many Drops of Bach Flower Remedies Should I Take a Day?
Best practice states that you should take four drops, 4 times a day. You can take them directly in your mouth or in a glass of water or a beverage of your choice.
The temperature of the beverage will not change the effectiveness of the remedy. So it’s fine to take the flower remedies in coffee or smoothie.
For those who find it tedious to take four drops, 4 times a day; you may put 16 drops in a water bottle and take small sips all day long.
How Many Drops of Rescue Remedy Should I Take a Day?
While you may also take four drops of Rescue Remedy 4 times a day, you don’t have to. Once a day you can put four drops in your morning coffee, tea, or glass of water and take small sips all morning. Or you may simply take as needed directly in your mouth when crisis situations arise.
How Long Does It Take for Bach Flowers to Work?
Long term use increases effectiveness. The rule of thumb is that you should take a remedy for 1 month for every year you have had the problem. However, you should start feeling a shift in your emotions between 1 to 3 days.
