The Bach Flower Remedies are "energy"
medicines. They do not contain any chemically active ingredients, but
they do work. How is that possible? The flowers are gathered and soaked
in water in the sunshine for a certain amount of time. The energy of the
flowers is thus transferred to the water. The flowers are then removed
and what is left is the water that has the energetic imprint of that
flower. When taken internally the energy of the plant, present in the
water, will act on the subtle energy body (etheric) of the person. The
Bach Flower Remedies work by stimulating the body’s own capacity to heal
itself, by balancing emotions, helping you to take control, feel good
about yourself, and get more out of life. This is in short how it works.

I have taken
the Bach Flower Remedies and I have experienced positive results. But
these results are subtle, psychological, and can be different for other
Bach Rescue Remedy
This is available as a cream (see
below) and in the same fluid form with a dropper bottle as you will find
all of the other flower essences. Take a couple of drops from the mother
tincture (the bottle) in a glass of water. It does not have to be
distilled water, any water is ok. They are very helpful in stressful
events, shocks, fear, emergencies, accidents. Rescue Remedy helps the
entire body deal with the extreme situation on both the physical and
emotional or psychological levels.
Bach Rescue Cream
Bach Rescue Cream I have seen very good results. The cream consists of
standard base material (Aqua, Petrolatum, Cetearyl alcohol, PEG 20
Stearate, Methylparaben, Mel, Propylparaben) that is impregnated with
the energies of six flowers: Cherry Plum, Clematis, Crab Apple,
Impatiens, Rock Rose, Star of Bethlehem. It helps to promote healing of
cuts, sores, abrasions, bruises, bug bites, and other problems of the
skin. My own experience is that it works very well for certain skin
problems but not with others. For example, it doesn't quite work with
pimples, zits etc. Maybe this is because there are caused by internal
I once gave the cream to a woman who had an infection inside
the top of her index finger. The infection had made her finger numb for
several weeks. She applied the cream to her finger, and after five
minutes (while we were talking) she was very surprised that her finger
became sensitive again. Yes, it worked that quickly. She took the cream
home and applied the cream on her finger daily and the infection was
drawn to the surface within a week and healed.
I believe that the
Bach Rescue Cream strongly enhances the natural healing system of the
body. On a previous job, a colleague told me that her husband has
cleaned a photocopier with a solvent but had not put on any gloves.
Shortly afterwards he noticed that the solvent was corrosive to his
skin. The skin of both his hands had been severely damaged. He tried to
protect his hands with Vaseline, but to no avail. It had already been a
couple of days, and his hands did not show any improvement. So I gave
the woman rescue cream to take home. After one or two days he was seeing
a remarkable improvement and after a couple of more days the skin of his
hands were completely healed. They couldn't believe it. I also must say
that both women I have mentioned here did not believe in alternative
medicine and did not have any expectations.
