What is Five Flower Essence?

A  In 1933 Dr Bach first put together a combination of his new remedies as a way to help people in distress. It was based upon the flower essence Rock Rose , which he called ‘rescue remedy’. In 1935, when he completed the discovery of the 38 Bach flowers, he settled upon five flowers in this rescue combination: Rock Rose , Cherry Plum , Clematis , Impatiens and Star of Bethlehem .

These five flowers we call Five Flower Essence . We prepare this as stock concentrate for making up at dosage strength; as a dosage strength spray, sugar granules (without alcohol) and as a cream.
