Shift Your Inner Vibration Using Bach Flower Essences

Flower essences are the vibrational energetic imprint derived from living flower that has been transferred and stabilized in water.  A Bach Flower Essence is made from the flowering part of a plant but are not aromatic.  They are designed to address emotional and mental aspects of wellness and interact well with the human subtle energy system and subtle bodies.  Their focus is to help assist in moving and shifting your vibration and remedy a particular negative emotional state.

How Bach Flower Essences Work

Flower essences work to balance negative states of mind.  Negative emotions, such as anger, resentment, insecurity or fear, impact the body on many different levels and can ultimately weaken the immune system.  This can leave the body vulnerable to illness and disease.  When we dislodge old trauma, beliefs and habits we can begin to heal.  Flower essences work to harmonize our emotional and energetic bodies.  Shifts in these subtle bodies will allow our physical bodies begin to realign and heal as well.

Bach flower essences are very effective in helping us to recognize and rid ourselves of limiting or destructive patterns of behavior. Flower essences can help us reduce stress in our lives, resolve old traumas, and deal with painful or negative emotions.

If you are uncertain about flower essences, the good this is that it is not necessary to believe in them to experience their beneficial effects. Anyone who utilizes flower essences for their healing benefits may experience their subtle effects differently.  Unlike traditional medications, the way to recognize if your flower essences are working is to check in and observe our inner state. The more attuned we are to our inner life the easier it is to recognize the flower essence’s effects.

How To Work With Bach Flower Essences

Bach Flower Essences are considered a homeopathic treatment, meaning it is not about how much you take at a time but how frequently you utilize these remedies.  Flower Essences are distributed in small dropper bottles. To take the essence you will simply shake the bottle gently, and take a few drops under the tongue several times during the day.

Typically, 4 drops of a specific flower essence, or flower essence combination, are placed under the tongue.  This is repeated 4 times a day, or as needed.  For best effects, use it more often throughout the day instead of increasing the number of drops.  You can also add 4 drops to a glass of water.  This should also be repeated 4 times a day, or as needed.

Children & Flower Essences

Children and infants respond well to flower essences.  You can put 4 drops into a sippy-cup or baby bottle, repeating it as specified above.  The same holds true for pets.  Put 4 drops in the animal’s drinking water, repeating 4 times per day, or as needed. For large animals, such as horses, use 10 to 20 drops at a time.

Flower Essences can also be sprayed or rubbed on sensitive parts of the body such as the inside of the wrists, the soles of the feet or the back of the neck. They can also be added to bath water or to humidifiers.

Flower Essence Combinations

At times, you might need to mix two or more remedies together to match your precise mix of emotions.  It is quite usual to take up to six or seven remedies together at the same time.

Flower Essences And Traditional Medications

Normally there is no problem with taking Bach remedies alongside other medicines. The active ingredient in a flower remedy is an energy from the plant, not a physical substance, so it will not interfere with the physical action of the other medicine. Nor will the other medicine stop the Bach remedy from working.

The only point of caution concerns the alcohol used to bottle and preserve the remedies.

Working With Bach Flower Essences

British physician Edward Bach, M.D. introduced Bach flower remedies in the 1930s.  Bach developed what he called a “theory of types” which were broken up into seven groups that included fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, lack of interest in present circumstances, despondency, and over-concern for others.

Based upon these types, Dr. Bach devised 38 wild flower essences, or remedies, for treatment for these negative moods and emotions.  These original flower essences and their application are listed below.  Dr. Bach’s followers have since added additional flower essence remedies.
