WHAT ARE BACH FLOWER ESSENCES?
Bach Flower Essences are a safe, gentle and natural healing system used to directly address imbalances in an individual’s personality, mood and emotional outlook. Developed by Dr. Edward Bach, an English physician and homeopath, they use the vibrational essence of particular flowers to smooth out one’s rough edges, which then creates the space for positive attributes to come into our lives. They are a tool to help provide among other qualities strength, courage, compassion, and understanding. The Bach Flowers Essences are very effective, safe, and easy for all ages to use.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dr. Bach recognized that emotional states such as low self-esteem, anger, worry or fear affect a person’s vitality, thus lowering their resistance to stress and disease. The Bach Flower Essences were developed to help allow a person to be able to dissolve and melt away these difficulties, obstacles and weaknesses, which affect the mental or emotional levels. Each flower has vibrations of positive aspects, influences and patterns that resonate harmoniously with our latent corresponding feelings, characteristics and attitudes. When we take the flower essences, the flower’s vibrations are released within us. They become a catalyst, which stimulates and encourages our own inner transformation. They strengthen weak or blocked qualities and moderate excessiveness, thus strengthening one’s inner vitality.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A BACH FLOWER ESSENCE SESSION?
A Bach Flower Essences session consists of the practitioner and client sitting in the office and having a dialogue about what issues the client wants to address. The client does most of the speaking and occasionally the practitioner will ask a question, often to clarify something that has been said. When the practitioner seems clear about which essences to use, the practitioner will ask if there are any other issues the client wants to address. The key issues that the client brought up are then reviewed and it is discussed as to which flower essences should be used. The personal flower essence formula is then made up for the client to use as directed.
HOW MUCH IS NEEDED?
A single session and use of the personal formula can provide some tremendous benefit in a short period of time. The best results are obtained when the client utilizes the Bach Flower Essences until all issues are resolved. Sometimes the elimination of one situation will lead to an onion peeling effect, which reveals the next layer that is to be addressed. As things shift and change a new consultation is indicated to determine the appropriate new combination of the Bach Flower Essences.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SEEING A PRACTITIONER?
Practitioners are trained in the subtle differences and the appropriate uses of the individual Bach Flower Essences. Working with a practitioner allows for the client to feel free to ‘talk things out’ without having to stop and identify what the issue is and then pick the appropriate flower essence. Practitioners provide an impartial look at the issues and determine objectively, which are the most appropriate essences to use.
