The 38 Flower Remedies

Edward Bach (1886-1936) trained as a doctor of medicine at University College Hospital and Cambridge University. His principal interest was homeopathy. In 1930 he left London in order to concentrate on finding a new system of healing involving plant remedies. Between 1928 and 1935 he devised 38 new remedies, most of which were made from flowers, as a means of counteracting negative states of mind. He published his work by means of lectures and magazine articles in which he explained the three most important aspects of his remedies, namely prescription, method of manufacture and manner of treatment. After his death his work was carried on from his former home, Mount Vernon, Sotwell, Oxon, subsequently called the Bach Centre.

His original set of 38 Flower Remedies are ideal for treating many stress related problems, the most famous of which is known as Rescue Remedy and contains:
