How to use Bach Flower Essences (Remedies)
Bach flower essences are dilutions of flower material developed by Edward Bach in the 1930s. He put freshly picked flowers in a bowl with water and transferred their biophysical energy. He produced 37 different plant extracts as well as an essence of spring water.
The plants are classified in three categories:
The twelve healers: Agrimony, Centaury, Cerato, Chicory, Clematis, Gentian, Impatiens, Mimulus, Rock Rose, Scleranthus, Vervain, Water Violet
The seven helpers: Gorse, Heather, Oak, Olive, Rock Water, Vine, Wild Oat
The second 19: Aspen, Beech, Cherry Plum, Chestnut Bud, Crab Apple, Elm, Holly, Honeysuckle, Hornbeam, Larch, Mustard, Pine, Red Chestnut, Star of Bethlehem, Sweet Chestnut, Walnut, White Chestnut, Wild Rose, Willow
These essences are known today as Bach flower concentrates (stockbottles) or mixtures (Ready's, blends).
Production of Bach Flower Essences
On a sunny day, the blooms are picked at their peak of condition. They are prepared by very simple natural means. There are two different methods according to Dr Bach to extract the helping properties of the flowers: The Sun Method and the Boiling Method.
Organic Bach Flower Essences
During Dr. Bach's lifetime there wasn't a huge need to worry about the threat of natural resources and harmful substances in plants. But this is different by now. For precisely that reason it's the ambition of the SUNASAR AG to produce uncontaminated essences in balance with nature.
The handpicked flowers come from certified organic cultivation and controlled wild collection since 2012. Since summer 2012 the SUNASAR Bach Flower essences are certified with the Swiss an European organic certification by bio.inspecta.
