Bach Flower

Dr. Bach discovered 38 Bach original flower remedies and he noted that five of them in particular have special chemical properties to calm agitated/anxious emotions.

Dr. Bach blended dilutions of Rock Rose, Star of Bethlehem, Impatiens, Cherry plum and Clematis and found the combination to be an effective remedy for everyday stress. He called it ¨Rescue Remedy,¨ and it remains an example of the simplicity and power of natural healing. Dr. Bach´s remedy can be purchased in local grocery stores and drug stores.

Bach Flower gently restores the balance between mind and body by calming negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, anger and indecision.
