The British doctor and homeopath Edward Bach (interestingly, the name is pronounced Batch, unlike the German composer’s) created his famous flower remedies during the early part of the twentieth century.
They’re solutions of brandy and water, with the water containing heavily diluted flower material. According to Bach, the dew on flower petals retains what he saw as the plant’s healing qualities.
These remedies are an alternative or complementary product used to treat pain and emotional distress.
Generally speaking, the concept behind Bach’s flower remedies is pretty similar to homeopathy; the belief that the body can cure itself, and that the body and mind can be treated with small amounts of natural substances including plants and minerals. The difference with Bach’s products, however, is that they use fewer materials and work on negative emotions rather than physical symptoms.
It was Bach’s belief that curing negative emotions can help the body to heal itself. Within his system are nearly 40 (38 to be precise) remedies, each one addressing a particular negative emotion.
So you choose your remedy to treat the specific emotional issue at the heart of your own situation. It’s possible to use one or a number of products at the same time.
Treatments typically come as liquids in dropper bottles, and you can either place them on your tongue or dispense a small number of drops into a glass of water and drink them. Studies have shown these remedies to be safe. And people have taken Bach’s remedies for a range of issues, from depression and stress to anxiety, as well as for some physical conditions including HIV and cancer.
The Pine Bach remedy
This remedy is for when you feel you may be blaming yourself for something you have or have not done, or are feeling guilty even for something that wasn’t within your control. Equally, you may be assuming blame for others’ mistakes, or it may seem that you are constantly apologising. Even if you are successful, you may still believe you could have done better.
The ultimate aim of the treatment for you to acknowledge your faults without dwelling on them, and to put wrongs right wherever possible. At the same time, there is an understanding of the occasions where you are not to blame, or have tried your best, and can be happy with that.
It’s about inner forgiveness, strength and self-worth.
