The 7 Bach Flower Groups

The 7 Bach Flower Groups

Dr. Bach separated the 38 Bach Flower Remedies into 7 emotional groups.

Bach Flower Remedies

The 7 Bach Flower groups makes it easier for us to separate the Bach Flower Remedies into feelings, such as  fear, despair, loneliness, uncertainty etc.
We ask ourselves, how do I feel? Do I feel fear, what kind of fear? Do I feel despair, what kind of despair? Then the groups can aid us and determine which of the Bach Flower Remedies will help us get our emotional balance restored.

The Bach Flower Remedies are so simple to use that no science and no knowledge is necessary apart from the simple method described above.

Dr. Edward Bach wrote, “Disease of the body itself is nothing but the result of the disharmony between soul and mind. Remove the disharmony, and we regain harmony between soul and mind, and the body is once more perfect in all its parts.”
