Bach Flower Essences
What is Bach Flower Essences?
Bach Flower Remedies are the distilled essences of flowering tree branches and flowering plants which taken daily are a simple, effective way to help manage the emotional demands of everyday life by bringing “negative” attitudes and feelings back into balance.
Flower essences provides a system of natural healing directed at your personality, mood and emotional outlook. There are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system that were discovered in the 1920s and 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach. Dr. Bach, a medical doctor and bacteriologist believed that the true causes of disease are negative personality traits, attitudes, beliefs, thoughts or emotions and that these imbalances become energetic patterns that fragment us from our natural state of wholeness and inner balance. Creating our reality over time, these perceptions, beliefs and life habits generate distress and stress and we slowly begin to turn away from our optimal state of health.
Depressing thoughts resentments, fears and personal traumas replay themselves over and over again until they either become worn out or their frequency programming in some way gets cleared from your energy field. Bach Flower essences help release these unwanted energy forms/frequencies of past habits of experiences. Each essence corresponds with one of the qualities and its purpose is to strengthen that quality so that the personality may rise above the belief that is creating the block and disease. As the essences heal our fears, anxieties, worries, faults and failings, the dis-ease will leave us.

What should I expect from my Bach flower essences session?
When you schedule your appointment at Tournesol you will be asked to submit an intake form that will provide your practitioner with details about you and your current goals with flower essence therapy.
Your initial meeting takes place in a consultation room where you will discuss your concerns. Your practitioner will mix your unique combination of Bach Flower essences that will best address your personality, your emotional needs and goals.
After one month using your remedy, usually 4 drops into your mouth 4 times per day, you will have a follow up visit to evaluate how the formula is working for you. You and your practitioner will discuss whether adjustments to your remedy need to be made. If so your practitioner will prepare a new formula.
