Rescue Remedy® was founded on the simple idea that ingredients born from nature can be incredibly powerful in supporting our emotional wellbeing, which is key to our overall health.
Edward Bach devoted his life to exploring the use of flowers and plants to create a simple, natural and gentle approach to emotional balance, inspired and empowered by the strength of nature surrounding him. His approach remains at the core of our values to this day; our products are still made using the original methods developed by Dr. Bach over 90 years ago and we still hand pick the plants and flowers from the same sites he used.
We recognise though, that while Rescue® products are brought to life by the flower essences identified by Dr. Bach, the ingredients are only one part of the story.
As experts in the power of nature, not only do we want to help users all over the globe find balance in times of emotional demand, but we equally want to recognise the strength and potential inherent in nature — which means protecting it for future generations.
We are committed to:
- being kinder to the planet through small, sustainable steps for our products, processes, packaging and throughout the wider Rescue® product journey;
- minimising our impact on the ecosystems from which our ingredients are sourced;
- using recyclable packaging and minimal plastic whenever possible; and
- increasing our use of sustainably sourced materials to bring you Rescue® products.
However, we know we need to do more.
We remain dedicated to taking responsibility for minimising our impact on the environment, including working towards fully recyclable product packaging, ethically sourced ingredients and using more sustainable processes through the entire lifecycle of our products.
It’s incredibly important to us, and we know it’s important to you, so we will continue to challenge ourselves and our partners to be better, and we’ll keep you up to date on our journey.
The Story Of Rescue®
The original Rescue Remedy® in the iconic little yellow bottle has provided gentle, non-habit forming stress relief to millions around the world for generations.
History Of Rescue®
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.
How Rescue® Is Made
The flower essences are still sourced from plants grown at Dr. Bach’s former home in Mount Vernon, Oxfordshire. They are then sent to London where they are diluted and bottled to the highest quality standards.
The Connection To Bach®
Dr. Edward Bach selected five Bach® flower essences for his Rescue Remedy® formula. The Bach® flower remedies are a gentle system that capture the essence of flowers.
