Bach Flower Remedy System


Picture of Bach Rescue Remedy in all its forms

I first heard of Bach Rescue Remedy from a friend and neighbour.  I came back from the Philippines with an illness that turned out to be a form of malaria, and I was sick!  With sickness comes feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, and reclusiveness.   Sally promised me that if I tried Rescue Remedy, I would start to feel different and better in a week.  I went and bought a bottle of the drops.  My house has never been without it since. 

Here are some of the Rescue miracles.  Most involve one to five drops on the tongue.

  • Heals a broken heart
  • Helps the healing process in an illness
  • A few drops revives wilting flowers
  • A few drops relaxes an anxious dog
  • A few drops soothes a “first time mother” horse giving birth
  • A drop perked up lethargic goldfish
  • Two drops at night helps insomniacs drift off for a couple of hours sleep

This sounds like a pretty interesting product, doesn’t it? 

Well, Dr. Bach created a whole system of remedies like this one, called The Bach Flower Remedy System.  The System includes many remedies in addition to the Rescue Remedy which is also called “The traditional crisis remedy”.  The following comes from the Bach Centre website –

It (the Rescue Remedy)  is the most famous of the remedies, but in fact is not ‘a remedy’ at all. Instead it’s a blend of five different remedies:

  • Rock Rose
  • Impatiens
  • Cherry Plum
  • Star of Bethlehem
  • Clematis

This mix was created by Dr Bach to deal with emergencies and crises – the moments when there is no time to make a proper individual selection of remedies. It can be used to help us get through any stressful moments, from last-minute exam nerves to the aftermath of an accident.

There is a complete list of the original Bach Remedies, what they are, and how to take them, on the Bach Centre website.  Check it out, and let me know what your favorite remedy is.

Walk in Peace!
