Bach Centre

British center for the preparation and dispensation of the remedies developed by Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936). These were prepared from summer flowers floated on a bowl of clear stream water exposed to sunlight for three hours. Bach developed 38 remedies, one for each of the negative states of mind suffered by human beings, classified under seven group headings: fear, uncertainty, insufficient interest in present circumstances, loneliness, oversensitivity to influences and ideas, despondency or despair, and overcare for the welfare of others.

Bach, who had psychic faculties, believed that his special preparations transferred a subtle force from the flowers to the water. The sunlight released vital astral forces in the flowers, which had a positive effect on human astral forces. Bach spent his last years at a cottage on the borders of Buckinghamshire, England, which has now become the center for his remedies. Address: Bach Centre, Mount Vernon, Bakers Lane, Sotwell, Oxon, OX10 0PZ, England. Books and information relating to the flower remedies of the late Edward Bach are available at this address. The society also issues a newsletter three times a year and has an official home page:
