Handpicked from Nature
According to the method created by British homeopath Edward Bach, flowers are picked (without being touched) and steeped into a glass bowl filled with water from a spring close to the place where flowers are collected. The bowl with the flowers is placed under sunlight for some hours at the collection place. Some flower remedies may be boiled. Instead of exposing the infusion to the sun, flowers are boiled in the spring water. Bach used the boiling method whenever it was impractical to leave flowers to macerate under sunlight, when the temperatures of the British springtime were too low or when flowers were too strong. In our weather we do only the second group applying the boiling method. Once the steeping or boiling step is completed, the infusion water is separated from the flowers, and an equal amount of grappa is added to preserve the product. Bach used brandy, a kind of grappa made in England, since he thought it was more pure and natural than the denaturated alcohol generally used in medicine. In both cases, the mix produced is a mother tincture which would be further diluted before use to prepare the bottles of remedies that will be later sold to shops.
Excellent for your skin
According to studies on Bach flower therapy, using Bach flower remedies as cosmetics products not only helps improve how your skin looks but also develops your personality, that is, the negative blockages that are translated to your face are removed, and so you feel better and look better as well. It is important to highlight that the World Health Organisation does not approve or issue licenses to any type of treatment.
Where on Earth does it come from?
Doctor Edward Bach was born on 24 September 1886, in Moseley, a small village close to Birmingham, in the Welsh countryside. Since he was young, he showed a huge sensitivity for Nature and human suffering, so much so that he would soon decide to study medicine. After graduating from the University of London in 1912, he started to work in a hospital but he realized that medicine was limited because it focuses exclusively on diseases and symptoms leaving aside the person as a whole, without considering each person’s emotional approach when facing pain and diseases. Not happy with such panorama, Bach decided to leave the surgery department of the hospital where he worked to go to the immunology department, but his ideal view of a kind and non-invasive medicine was not welcomed. The turning point of his professional life came when he met Doctor Samuel Hahnemann, best known for creating a system of alternative medicine called homeopathy, and started working together on scientific projects. Always searching for whatever is smooth and natural, Doctor Bach started to study plants and flowers; in 1928 he returned to the Welsh countryside where he was born to collect some flowers. He started studying the properties of flowers and little by little he discovered the huge therapeutic value that characterizes each of them. His research on plants would make him abandon his profession as a doctor, and he dedicated the last years of his life exclusively to discover the 38 flowers that we know today and to write an extremely simple method that anyone can learn to use- the self-healing method. Bach’s mission can be said to be accomplished when he finally managed to ease his patients’ suffering using flower remedies. Doctor Edward Bach died on 27 November 1936 at the age of 50 despite having been diagnosed with a serious illness in 1917 and it was predicted that he had only 3 months left to live.
