The 12-7-19 Method
The Twelve Healers are the plants that Dr Bach associated with personality types. They relate to our essential nature and are the most common starting point for selecting essences. It is useful to identify the one that best describes the kind of person you are. Several of them may seem to be relevant but one will be most appropriate. If we can find it then it becomes the focus of a combination for personal use.
The Seven Helpers are the support essences and are selected for long-term emotional states. Dr Bach found these chronic conditions often obscure a person’s true nature as it is expressed within the Twelve Healers group.
The Second Nineteen are the essences that reflect our emotional responses to traumatic events. They help us to develop greater inner strength and fortitude and bring out our best qualities. They are clearly focused on immediate issues.
