The 38 Flower Remedies

The beautiful 38 flower remedies, address the emotional state of the being at an energetic level. They are extremely powerful and extremely effective. Addressing emotional issues will indeed have positive physical implications. Rescue Remedy is used by many for trauma, shock and high stress as it helps the mind and body stabilize when needed. It is made up of 5 of the 38 flower essences. I always have a bottle with me in the car, in my handbag, and especially when I am walking my dogs as you never know who or what you might encounter. Many bottles have been given away throughout the years.

We use Bach Flower Rescue Cream for all stings, bites, infections and trauma to the body. It is my number one go to for all tick bites. It is a wonderful resource to have available.

How to Use:

Special specific remedies are mixed for every being to bring them back to balance based on their emotional symptoms. One uses a resource, like the books mentioned below, to investigate each flower remedies properties, to determine which flower essence the being-in-need of balancing may require. The more defined the remedy, the more powerful. It is advised, no more than 7 may be mixed in one bottle.

How to Mix:

· Buy an empty 30ml amber dropper bottle

· Add Mineral water or filtered water – not tap water

· Add 4 drops of each flower essence required – no more than 7 are recommended

· Give the being in question a minimum of 4 drops 4 times per day in the mouth, on the paws, on the snout or on the ears – it must sink into the skin.

I suggest using one of the three resources mentioned below as your guide, myself or hire a professional Bach practitioner. It may seem quite straight forward, but it is interesting how some remedies can be used for things one might not think of.

Before giving to an animal:

Always communicate to the animal what you are doing and why. It is important we always give them the opportunity to REFUSE. They know!!

This is a proposed dialogue to have with the animal PRIOR to doing anything – under all circumstances not just with giving Bach, “I would like to give this remedy to you. It is made from the energy of flowers and mixed with water. It is to help you with _____________ (fill in what you see the beings / imbalance/ challenge may be). It is non-toxic, completely in tune with nature and will not hurt your body in any way. If your body does not need it, it will flush it from your system. You do not have to worry about it hurting you, only helping you. May I proceed to give this to you?”
