Can Bach Flower Essences Help Your Child  Succeed?

Are you looking for safe, natural remedies to help with a multitude of symptoms for childhood issues? Bach flower essences offer a gentle and effective tool to facilitate great healing and a happy household!



What Are Bach Flower Essences?

Bach Flower Essences are homeopathically prepared remedies from the blooms of plants, bushes and trees that were discovered by English physician and homeopath, Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930’s. There are 38 flower essences (plus one combination essence known as Rescue Remedy or Five Flower Formula) that correspond to specific mental and emotional states. Dr. Bach noticed in his medical practice, that many of his patients’ complaints and conditions seemed linked to their state of mind. This led him to conclude that the original cause of most physical ailments lay in the person’s negative emotional or psychological states.


Dr. Bach decided to dedicate his life to the discovery of a system of healing that would transcend physical symptoms and address the mental and emotional roots of disease. He thought if one’s emotional symptoms are balanced, the body’s own vitality would be strengthened and able to throw off illness. This led him to categorize his patients’ negative states or inner imbalances and search for the corresponding flower that would restore their balance and transform negative emotions into positive ones. Dr. Bach stated “There is no true healing unless there is a change in outlook, peace of mind, and inner happiness.”


How do Bach Flower Essences work?

Bach Flower Essences contain no scent and are not to be confused with aromatherapy or essential oils. Dr. Bach was inspired by dewdrops on flower petals. He speculated that through the heat of the sun, the healing essence of a flower is brought out to the dew and the flowers release their healing energy into the water. All Flower Essences are collected at the peak of their bloom, when Dr. Bach thought the healing properties were at their strongest. By extracting essences and through self-experimentation, Dr. Bach isolated flowers which address a broad range of psychological symptoms. Essences are chosen by identifying the negative emotions, feelings, attitudes and behaviors that a person experiences when swinging out of balance. Taking the essence associated with that particular emotional imbalance raises the frequency of vital life force and seemingly dissolves the negativity to allow the positive potential of the Essence and the corresponding positive emotions to be experienced.


How do I administer to Infants and Children?

There are many ways to take the essences: orally, topically, in a spray, mixture bottle—even added to a beverage. There is a small amount of brandy added to the essences to preserve and prevent contamination, so for use with children and infants you may want to dilute it in a drink or administer the remedy topically – our skin is our largest organ, so it’s a great way to receive these liquid. Also, adding a couple drops of an essence to a drink or bottle of water and sipping throughout the day is a great way to garner the healing properties of the essence. Bach Flower Essences can be combined with other forms of therapy and treatments and still be effective and safe. You can easily combine up to seven essences to fit your situation. The flower essences are so safe that even if you happen to give the “wrong” remedy, adverse reaction will not happen.
