Discovering Flower Remedies


Myself in the flower gardens of York, England 

About 15 years ago I became familiar, personally, with flower remedies. They were discovered in England in the early 1900’s by Dr. Bach. I have been through a lot of emotional turmoil over the years, like most of us. These remedies are small bottles that you place 2 – 4 drops under your tongue a couple of times a day or you can dilute them in water and sip it throughout the day. The way I look at it is even back in the olden days Indians would heal with plants that God put on the earth. They are 100% natural.

There is nothing mystical about them. It’s just that a lot of people don’t know about them. All members of my family have received emotional relief during stressful times. I don’t sell them. I wish I did. If you are a local friend of mine, you can purchase them for about $8 at the Pro Health Herb shop in McDonough. It is owned by my friend Ann. Tell her Diane Carden referred you. You can be tested in the shop for a flower remedy. The shop is located next to Quiznos on Jonesboro Road. You can also purchase them online. Here's the link: That’s my personal experience. Here are some basic details. It is followed by a very simple questionnaire to determine which one(s) you need. I take 3 or 4 for different reasons. If you need more help deciding I have a complete book that goes in depth on selecting the right remedy. Just click: Contact me. I will look it up for you.


The original Bach Flower Remedies® is a system of 38 Flower Remedies that correct emotional imbalances: negative emotions are replaced with positive. They are made 100% naturally from spring water infused with wild flowers, either by the sun-steeped method or by boiling. The Remedies are hand produced exclusively in England. They contain 27% grape based brandy as a preservative.
