A few days of bright, clear weather with not a cloud in the sky: essence making in progress. These two pictures show the difference that 3 hours of sunshine make to the fresh, spring water in the bowl. It is always a great joy to watch. Here at Healing Herbs we add 50/50 of organic (Ecocert) brandy to complete the mother tincture or mother essence. Then to make ‘stock concentrate’ we drop 1 part of mother essence to 400 parts of the same organic brandy – it’s in every bottle that we sell. This stock concentrate can then be diluted again to make up dosage strength. A little goes a long way!
Do you remember the good old days when June was warm and sunny? It certainly was in 1935 when Dr Bach chose Honeysuckle as the remedy for those who live in their memories of past happiness. Even though Honeysuckle is made by the ‘boiling method’ there has not been a suitable sunny day all week.
May 1935 Dr Bach chose Star to bring comfort when in shock and distress. It opens only when the sun shines warmly. Bluebells are not one of the Bach flowers but they are so beautiful, carpeting the ground under these Beech trees. Here there is calm and tranquillity in this turbulent time.
