A Children respond well to Bach essences, perhaps because they are less set in their ways than adults. Essences can be put into drinks, although alcohol should not be given directly to the young. Or they can take the sugar granules, which are alcohol free. Alternatively, you can put the diluted essences directly onto the skin using a cotton wool swab if you are treating a baby. It is worth remembering that mother and child are still one integrated system in infancy and what mum takes will be transferred to baby.
