Bach Flowers is a technique defined by English physician Edward Bach in the 1930s, which was recognized by the World Health Organization as an alternative therapy in the 1980s. It focuses on the individual and not on the disease, so the goal is to heal the psychological causes that trigger the disease.

Edward Bach presented 38 flower remedies, and each one deals with particular pathologies, with the benefit that if it is the incorrect remedy for the type of illness or condition, it will have no negative effects for the patient; the vibrational energy transmitted will simply go unused.

The remedies can be used alone or in conjunction with others. Practitioners are trained to use and create the different flower remedies. They can be used on children and pets as well.

Benefits for Children

Children are smaller versions of us. They can also benefit from homeopathic remedies. Because it is diluted, the same dose that is given to adults is also given to children. There are no toxic substances used so side effects are rare.

Because Bach flower remedies are used mostly to affect emotional states in an individual, they are used for children with learning difficulties and other emotional issues. Depending on the child’s symptoms, a trained Bach flower homeopath can recommend one of the standard remedies or create one based on the recommendations for different plants.

Since Bach flower remedies are made with alcohol, this has been a concern with parents. However, because of the dilution sequence, there is very little alcohol present to affect the child. For some remedies, there are alcohol-free versions.
