The system of plant and flower-based essences was developed in the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach, a physician and homeopath who was convinced that emotional wellbeing was key to overall health. He spent many years exploring the use of flowers and plants to develop his simple, gentle system of 38 flower essences, setting up The Bach Centre in Oxfordshire, England where we continue to prepare the essences exactly as he did.

Nelsons’ link with the Bach® Original Flower Remedies (BachRemedies.com) goes back to the 1930s and to Dr. Bach himself. As demand for the essences grew, Dr. Bach would supply concentrated essences to Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy who would make up the stock essences and make them available to the public. Over the years the relationship between The Bach Centre and Nelsons continued to grow and we now manufacture and distribute the essences around the world.
