About Bach Flower Remedies 

The essences that make up the Bach Flower Remedies were developed in the 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a physician and homoeopath who believed that the key to good health was by emotional harmony.

By 1936 he had identified 38 flower essences, each one being derived from a different wild flower, plant or tree, and had each mapped to a specific emotion.

Dr Bach organised the essences into seven groupings:

  • Face your fears
  • Know your own mind
  • Live the day
  • Reach out to others
  • Stand your ground
  • Find joy and hope
  • Live and let live

Dr Bach believed his complete system, which captures the positive potential of the plants they’re created from, offered a holistic approach to achieving emotional balance.

The system is designed so that the essences can be tailored to meet the needs of any individual so that they can be taken as a single remedy, or in combination.

Dr Bach believed that we are each responsible for our own health and happiness and wanted to teach others to help themselves. He always published his findings early and was revising his writings and giving talks right up to his death.

Mount Vernon is the name of the 19th Century cottage where Dr. Edward Bach lived and worked during the last years of his life.  It is also where Ros completed her training as a professional Bach Flower Remedy Practitioner. The Centre today focuses on education.
