Dr Edward Bach was born on the 24th September 1886, and decided on a medical career. After completion of his studies in 1912, he was appointed as a Pathologist and Bacteriologist at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and shortly later in life practiced as a Physician in Harley Street.
Dr Bach discovered the emotional importance of Bach flower remedies, and found the flowers had the potential to change a negative state of mind into a positive one.
Dr Bach believed that emotional distress had the potential to lead to illness if left untreated. He spent the remainder of his life further investigating and making available these flowers to everyone. He discovered 38 flower remedies and categorised these into 7 emotional groupings: fear, uncertainty, loneliness, insufficient interest in present circumstances, over-sensitivity, despondency and over care for the welfare of others.
Dr Bach had key preparation and potency methods for the remedies, and depending on the flower, the traditional sun or boil methods are used.
These same methods and principles are used by Martin & Pleasance in our Rest&Quiet range today.
