The Bach Original Flower Essences were developed in the 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a physician and homeopath who believed that the key to good health was by emotional harmony.
By 1936 Bach had identified 38 flower essences, each one derived from a different wild flower, plant or tree, and each corresponding to a specific emotion. 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.
He believed the system captured the positive potential of the plants and offered a holistic approach for emotional balance. The essences are designed to be tailored to meet each person’s individual needs, so that they can be taken individually, or in combination.
Nelsons link with the Bach Original Flower Remedies goes back to the 1930s and with 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 across the world.
