What Is Bach Rescue Remedy And What Is It Used For?
The body is an intricately connected network so something that has an impact on one part of the body will surely impact other areas as well. It is now a well-understood fact that our emotions effect our physical health and that a healthy emotional life can help the body maintain its more natural state.
In the early 20th century, a British physician named Dr. Edward Bach, focused his studies on how healing negative emotions can lead to the body righting and healing itself. He was convinced that emotional wellbeing was key to good health. One of the ways he believed negative emotions could be transformed was through the therapeutic properties of flowers.
Bach went on to develop healing flower essences by infusing spring water with wild flowers, either by a sun-steeped method or by boiling. Each remedy was then blended in an alcohol base and bottled for use as needed. Drops are taken directly by mouth, placing a few drops under the tongue, or added to water and sipped slowly.
The complete system of 38 essences capture the positive potential of the plants they’re from, and each essence corresponds to a specific emotion. You can find a remedy for any negative emotion you wish to overcome—such as sadness, anxiety, anger, apathy, and more—in guides on Bach websites. Each essence is made with a single type of flower, or there is a special blend of 5 wildflowers—cherry plum, clematis, impatiens, rock rose, and star of Bethlehem—called Rescue Remedy. This original blend is a great mix of remedies for dealing with the common stresses of everyday life.
