want to be seen as jealous or over-protective, but once we have admitted
how we feel, we are halfway towards balancing that emotion. So, if you
have trouble working out your feelings, why not ask someone who knows
you well to help?

Where do the Bach™ Original Flower Remedies come from?
The Bach Original Flower Remedies were developed by Dr Edward
Bach a Harley Street doctor and well known Physician, Bacteriologist,
Homeopath and Researcher. He believed that attitude of mind plays a
vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness.
He identified 38 basic negative states of mind and created a plant or
flower based remedy for each one.
After leaving London in 1930, Dr Bach explored the countryside in search
of the remedies for several years. In 1934 he decided to settle down and
create a centre for his work, and chose Mount Vernon, a small cottage in
He spent the last years of his life at Mount Vernon and it was here that
he completed his research.
Nowadays, Mount Vernon is better known as The Bach Centre, and
the present custodians continue to prepare the mother tinctures (first
process in making the remedies), often using the same locations that Dr
Bach identified in the 1930's.

How are the Bach™ Original Flower Remedies made?
Preparing the Bach Original Flower Remedies is a three step
process as detailed below;
Mother tinctures are prepared from plant material and natural spring
water using either the Sun or Boiling Method as defined by Dr Bach.
The mother tincture is made up of the energised spring water [Step one]
mixed with an equal quantity of 40% brandy. The brandy acts purely as a
preservative for the remedy.
To make the stock bottle, the mother tincture is added to 30ml of 27%
How Bach Original Flower Remedies are made
There are two methods of preparing the Mother Tinctures for the Bach
Original Flower Remedies.
The Sun Method: Dr Bach used this method to make 20 of the remedies,
most of which are delicate flowers and bloom in the height of summer.
The Boiling Method: Dr Bach used this method to prepare the remaining 18
remedies, from trees and bushes and plants, most of which flower in the
early part of the year.
The Use of Alcohol
Dr Bach used alcohol in his preparations, usually brandy, for its
preservative properties. It is there to guard against microbial
contamination which could otherwise grow in the water-based remedies.
The alcohol is not an active ingredient.
In the early days when chemists were supplied with Mother Tinctures to
prepare the stock remedies, they used either rectified spirit or pure
alcohol. To those who found this confusing, Nora Weeks explained:
'In preparing the stock bottles, including the Rescue? Remedy, at Mount
Vernon, we use brandy instead of rectified spirit added by the chemists.
The brandy like the rectified spirit, is used only as a preservative and
makes no difference whatever to the strength or efficiency of the remedy.'
