How to make your own bach flower essences

Now, that's interesting!

 

Does it help? I mean do you feel a difference when taking it?

 

What an excellent idea!

Yes, I think they could be used for making a change in life as well as changing yourself and your habits.

 

Sure, this is not a private discussion - it would be great to hear others experiences too!

Ok, can't find the other thread now...?...so, I found another source of flower remedies much more local to me, so I will obviously favour them now, over the Bach ones. The Findhorn Foundation is quite local, and these are made by them using (mostly) wildflowers from Scotland :D

 

Check them out ...http://www.findhornessences.com/

 

Their test kits are only £47 for 48 samples, which is brilliant to start with. Can't wait till payday now!!!

 

Hi Marion,

Okais... I'm a bit befuddled about this Bach Flowers. I had a very sick cat, who was on His way out due to his age, he was 18, now to add to his comfort my vet gave me Bach Flowers Aspen Remedy to put in his water. It did seem to help him. Are these the same as what you all are posting ? :wacko: Help !

 

Regards,

Gypsy

:) Thanks for that, D...vigilant as always. It's not a major subject on this forum so even two threads might be one too many. I'll keep using this one for now, but I appreciate the effort. I did look but maybe there was a blip in the search engine at the time.X

Yep, those are the very thing. Old kitties need extra special love, and at 18 yours has had a good run.

 

Now, I don't know what your vet said about Aspen so I'll tell you all I know (basically quoting from a book on Bachies for animals)

*ahem*

"Aspen (populus tremula) Remedies fear and apprehension whose cause is unknown, sudden anxiety and nervousness as indicated by trembling, shaking, panting, snorting, sweating, urination, fearful look in the eyes, ears and tail down, cowering and avoidance behaviours [bear in mind this book is for ALL animals, not just cats....never heard a cat snorting...!]

 

Restores calm and normal breathing, reduces muscle tension.

 

Thre's a whole lot more, but its especially good for cats who urinate through fear, and with mimulus can help with irritable bowel syndrome.

 

Clematis, elm, and olive are good for aging animals in various circumstances. Finally, and it's something you might want to store away for future reference, Walnut is good for facing up to euthanasia. It seems to help the cat with the process, and helps to remedy the owners distress. I hope you don't need that option for a long time to come X

Oh thank you Marion, the description you quoted was exactly what my Vet said about Agustus WhiteWhiskers, my dear departed friend. He started to get overly anxious in his grooming habits, where he had this obsession with pulling out his fur. She checked him over for all sorts of skin issues, and came up with none. She prescribe the Bach flower rememdy of Aspen in his water, and that really seemed to calm him down. It was better that putting a " cone " around his neck, as I felt that was to embarassing for the old gent. I did end up sewing him a shirt to wear, due to his lack of fur, and how cold it gets up here in Lake Country. He tolerated that as, as the aging process was so harsh on him, his dramatic weight loss, lack of fur, poor eyesight etc. but I am amazed at the Bach flower essenses. If they worked for Gus, they surely will work for 2 legged creatures. Thanks again Marion, you're a peach.

 

Warmest Regards,

Gypsy

I read both the theads pertaining to this subject. I had put the book " Bach Flowers for Crisis Care" on my wishlist on Amazon a while back and forgotten about it. Now this brings it back to mind.

 

To me, the Findhorne Flower Essences seem more usable for my purposes. Then I noticed they are from Scotland flowers, which tips the scales more for me. My heritage is mostly Scot with English, Irish and German thrown in the mix. So I rather like the idea of flowers grown in my ancestral homeland. BUT the Bach appear to be cheaper than FFE for what I can get in the states.

 

When I was doing some looking on the internet, I did find this site: http://www.fesflowers.com. They have not only the Bach line but a North American line for all of us on this side of the pond :)

 

As a witch, making my own flower essences sounds the best option. Interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing everyone. :)
