Bach flower remedies are a natural way to restore peace, balance, and happiness between the mind and body; by getting rid of negative emotions, like hatred, fear, worry, indecision, and more, these remedies bring a sense of equilibrium back to your overall mental and physical wellness. With 38 original herbs, the Bach flower remedies offer gentle healing for a wide variety of issues – and they are even safe for pets and domestic animals.

The natural healing method of Bach flower remedies was originally discovered by Edward Bach, an English homeopath, in the 1930s. The remedies are 50:50 solutions of water and brandy, with extremely small dilutions of flower material in the water. The concentrated solution of the flowers is known as “mother tincture,” the part of Bach flower remedies that is believed to poses the healing properties of each plant.

The benefits of Bach flower remedies can be obtained at the our school’s clinic services, such as the 60-minute Mind.Body.Spirit Renewal Session. During this traditional healing session, fresh plant brushings, sound medicine, and smoke medicine are used to restore your emotional, physical, and energetic harmony and renew you on all levels of your being. A custom-blended, 2 week dosage Bach flower remedy is included in the cost of the session, so you can enjoy the balance and relaxation at home.
