Flower Power – Healing through Nature with Bach Flower Remedies

Though it is not known exactly when the use of tinctures in natural medicine began, Bach Flower remedies have been around since the 1930’s. Dr. Edward Bach, a British Physician is responsible for their creation. Bach Flower Remedies consist of a collection of 38 different tinctures made by extracting the essence of a plants or flowers by using an alcohol based solution. The 38 tinctures were specially created to match and counteract the 38 negative states of mind.
