They are then simmered for 30 minutes.After this time a twig from the same plant is used to remove the flowers and the contents are filtered ready for the next stage.

Dr Edward Bach

Edward Bach was born in Moseley, near Birmingham, in 1886 and trained as a doctor in London. For several years he worked investigating the role of bacteriology in chronic disease. His researches led him to recognise that there were clear personality types that related to the various patterns of ill health, irrespective of the physical symptoms being presented by the patient. Working with vaccine therapy and later with homeopathic remedies, he moved towards the discovery of the flower essences. These he felt could help to harmonise the emotional imbalances that he came to see as the real cause of physical illness.
