Background knowledge about the Bach flowers

Bach flower therapy is a very gentle and natural method of therapy, which is based on the English physician Dr. Edward Bach (1886 - 1936) is due to a disturbance of the soul. The basic assumption behind this form of therapy is that physical or psychological illnesses are always accompanied by a disturbance of the spiritual balance. According to Bach, these disturbances of balance are due to misunderstandings in the field of mental laws. An example of this would be the thought "I can't rely on anyone and have to do everything myself." This thought creates negative feelings or destructive behavior patterns in us (e.g. fear, doubt, indecisiveness), which then lead to a blockage of our self-healing power. In such situations, Bach flowers can help to eliminate the disturbance or release the blockages.

How to make Bach flower essences

Basically, two different types of production are used in Bach flower therapy - the Solar method and the Cooking method. Regardless of which of the two methods is used, only the following are used for production wild plants of high-energy growth varieties used. Many of these plants are normally known as weeds.

Production: The solar method

The flowers are picked in full sunlight and then placed in a glass bowl with fresh spring water. This bowl is then placed in the sun for about two to four hours. This step is essential because, according to Dr. Bach, the sun has the ability to transfer the vibrations of the flowers to the spring water. Finally, the Bach flowers are removed from the water and alcohol (brandy) is added to the tincture. The so-called mother tincture is ready. This is diluted again, mixed with alcohol and then bottled.

Often, the Bach flowers are not taken individually, but rather combined with each other. The Bach flower mixtures are usually further diluted for intake. In acute situations, two drops of each selected Bach flower can be added to a glass of water. From this glass should then be drunk during the day again and again.

If the intake extends over a longer period of time, it is recommended to take a Bach Flower Blend prepare in an ingestion bottle. For this purpose, three drops of each selected flower are placed in a 30 ml dropper vial and then diluted with still mineral water. To make the mixture durable, alcohol is often added.

Rescue drops: The savior in distress

It is a mixture of the five Bach flowers Star of Bethlehem, Rock Rose, Impatiens, Cherry Plum and Clematis. It was originally made by Dr. Bach for a fisherman in distress at sea, but is still used by many people in stressful and emergency situations. The Rescue drops are used, as the name suggests, for "emergencies" so for example accidents, states of shock or massive anxiety.

The effect of the drops is not dependent on the personality of the user, rather it is based on an overriding reaction pattern that is exhibited by all people who are exposed to an emergency or shock situation as a result of an event. The Rescue drops are applied directly from the bottle, either undiluted or in a glass of water.
