The Plants of Dr Bach

The Plants of Dr Bach: Molecules, Remedies and Lore

Gwenda Kyd

Molecules, Remedies and LoreWhen Dr Edward Bach developed his 38 flower remedies in the 1930s he was carrying on a tradition of using plants for healing stretching back at least 60,000 years.   Today we understand more about how the chemical compounds in plants govern their lives and can also be useful to us.  However, although the flower remedies are known and used worldwide, the source plants themselves are often overlooked.  This book lifts the lid on the lives of the remedy plants and explores some of their weird and wonderful other uses and their origins.  We’ll discover the plant extract used to test for a rare blood group, the tree which helps make beer taste smoother and the flower forbidden to Victorian girls because of the shocking dreams it provoked.  Come and explore the world of the very special plants of Dr Bach!

“…a very enjoyable and well thought out book.”

“Overall, this is an excellent book, with great illustrations. I have enjoyed delving much deeper into the Bach remedies to learn about the plants.”
