BACH FLOWER ESSENCES
"In illness there is a change of mood from that in ordinary life, and those who are observant can notice this change often before, and sometimes long before, the disease appears, and by treatment can prevent the malady ever appearing. When illness has been present for some time, again the mood of the sufferer will guide to the correct remedy.
Take no notice of the disease, think only of the outlook on life of the one in distress."
- Dr Edward Bach
HOW DO YOU FEEL?
Bach flower remedies offer a safe and gentle way of restoring the balance between mind, body and spirit. Emotional responses such as: fear - anxiety - worry - stress - depression - joylessness - grief - sadness - hatred - anger - frustration - irritation - intolerance - resentment - overwhelm - overwork - loneliness - detachment - disinterest - difficulty concentrating - insomnia - excessive sensitivity - guilt - shame - despondency - despair - loss of confidence - shyness - low self-esteem - self-pity - indecision - confusion - uncertainty, etc., particularly when intense or held for extended periods, can disturb patterns of energy flow and interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. They can leave us feeling mentally and physically exhausted.
Flower essences help us to reestablish peace and happiness, which in turn provide the ideal conditions for self-healing.
BACH FLOWERS FOR ANIMALS
Bach Flower Remedies can also be extremely helpful for our animal friends, who experience emotional imbalances and trauma just as we humans do. Blends can be selected to help address issues such as aggression, phobias, dysfunctional behaviour such as excessive licking, scratching, weaving, windsucking, eating disorders, barking, separation anxiety, territorial behaviour, stress and fear.
"Every single person has a life to live, a work to do, a glorious personality, a wonderful individuality."
- Dr Edward Bach

I hold a Bach Flower Remedies Diploma with distinction.
"If you're cold, put on a cardigan and if you're hungry have something to eat. If you wake up one day lacking in confidence, take some drops of larch."
- Dr Edward Bach
HOW TO USE
Apply four drops on the tongue four times a day, or add to a glass of still water or a drink of your choice and sip at intervals.
Do not give to animals directly from the pipette as this may contaminate the remedy, and the pipette could break off in the mouth. Give at intervals throughout the day. Put four drops in a bowl of fresh drinking water, refreshing at least twice daily, add four drops to food or a treat, or apply four drops to your hand and let them lick it off. You can also add a few drops to a misting bottle with water and spray around the area where the animal sleeps.
DR EDWARD BACH
Bach Flower Remedies were developed by Edward Bach, a British doctor, bacteriologist and homeopath. Dr Bach first studied medicine in Birmingham, and then at University College Hospital in London where he became House Surgeon before taking a post at the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital. He also consulted in private practice in Harley Street. Dissatisfied with the expectation that doctors should concentrate purely on disease and physical ailments, whilst ignoring the whole person, he aspired to a more holistic approach. While he recognised the role of defective organs and/or tissue and the germ theory of a disease, he was curious as to how two people in similar states of health could be affected so differently by a pathogen, and instead focused his remedies on the treatment of a patient’s personality. He quickly noticed parallels between his work on vaccines and the principles of homeopathy, and went on to create a series of seven homeopathic nosodes. Many credit him as a ‘second Hahnemann’.
