Back Flower Essences. The simple and natural method of establishing complete equilibrium and harmony through the personality by means of wild flowers discovered by Edward Bach, M.B., B.S., M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P., D.P.H.
Dr. Edward Bach was a medical doctor and bacteriologist who gave up his lucrative practice to study the causes of ill health. He believed that if a patient's emotional balance were corrected, the body's natural ability to throw off illness would be strengthened. In the 1930s, Dr. Bach discovered the Bach Flower Essences in and around the pastoral cottage he maintained in Oxfordshire, England. His findings are very much in tune with the philosophy of natural health today.
Today, these safe and gentle essences are used all over the world by individuals, medical and other health practitioners, homeopaths, massage therapists, chiropractors, psychotherapists and counselors, dentists, veterinarians and healers. The Bach Centre, based on the Oxfordshire cottage where Dr. Bach spent his last years, has received thousands of testimonials from patients and practitioners, all vouching for the effectiveness of the Bach Flower Essences.

Are the Back Flower Essences only for sick people?
People do not have to be physically ill to benefit from the back Flower Essences. In times of difficulty and fatigue when negative feelings creep in, the essences can restore balance before any physical symptoms appear.
