We cannot say enough about the magical healing abilities of the treatments known as the Bach Flower Remedies. Besides using 38 remedies to treat various personality types and emotional conditions, we have discovered additional, extremely important uses with the brand of Bach Flower Remedies called Healing Herbs.
This is the only time on this site that we recommend an actual brand. That's it! And no, we don't sell the remedies, we just love them!
Healing Herbs Bach flower remedies are traditionally prepared in Hereford, England, by Julian and Martine Barnard, owners of Healing Herbs. We think Healing Herbs is undoubtedly the best brand of Bach Remedies on the market (more so than the pharmaceutical brand, which calls itself Nelson Bach).
We have found that these flower remedies strengthen, protect and purify the energy field of any adult, child or animal taking these remedies. This is enormously good news for those of us who are Healing Touch practitioners and spend hours healing people through our energy and touch. It is also great news for people who are sensitive to outside energy influences.
After using these remedies for years on ourselves and our clients, we have come to believe that extremely high energetic resonance enables these'flower remedies to help prevent the outbreak of viral strains, including flu, cold sores and genital herpes.
EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL APPLICATION OF THE BACH FLOWER REMEDIES
How To Prepare the Bach Flower Remedies For Internal Use
To make a dilute mixture, put two drops from each chosen stock remedy into a 1 oz amber dropper bottle, adding a little brandy as a preservative if desired. If the Five Flower Remedy is chosen, then four drops of stock are used.
Take four drops of the mixture, four times daily, making sure the dropper does not hit the inside of your mouth (as it shortens shelf life). Alternatively, for short term problems, put two drops of each stock remedy into a glass of water and sip at intervals until there is relief.
Benefit comes from small quantity, regular use rather than by the volume of remedy consumed. Don't worry that an inappropriate remedy might have an adverse reaction. You needn't fear overdose or error.
Remedies may be taken directly from the stock bottle, but this has no greater benefit than the diluted remedy.
FOR ORAL AND GENITAL HERPES:
This is one of the most potent and least known remedies to alleviate herpes. We hope you will give it a try if you suffer from herpes outbreaks.
When using these flower remedies to heal cold sores and herpes, you should take the remedies both internally and externally.
The most potent flower remedies to heal herpes are holly, walnut and crab apple. Any one of the three will work by itself. You can also take the three together in a formula.
Apply a few drops from a dilute mixture to the source of outbreak as often as 1x hour. If you have a cold sore on your lip, apply the watered down solution directly onto the cold sore. Same if you have a genital herpes outbreak. Please make sure the application is a very watered down solution (i.e., 2 drops of stock per formula bottle). Never put the remedy from the stock bottle directly on the cold sore. Always dilute it! This is, of course, especially important if you are using the remedies to treat genital herpes. The alcohol preservative in the remedies may otherwise cause irritation.
If you apply the remedy as soon as you feel the tingling sensation (indication of an impending herpes outbreak), and keep applying often, the cold sore may not manifest. This has been the repeated feedback we have received, so we hope you will experience the same amazing results.
Why do the Flower Remedies work so well?
We believe that one's personal energy field learns to resonate at the high frequency of the flower remedies over time. In adults, the crown chakra begins to emit white light within 24 hours of taking the flower remedies. The process is much faster in children and animals. According to one clairvoyant healer, white light is visible in the auras of animals and children usually within 10 minutes of taking Healing Herbs. We don't know any flower remedy on the market that has such a potent effect.
By the way, you don't have to be clairvoyant to observe the effects of these remedies. You will probably notice instead that people taking these remedies look more radiant or that their countenance glows!
Distinguishing Between Brands of Flower Remedies
We feel it is important to make the distinction between the flower remedies manufactured by Healing Herbs of Hereford, England and the remedies manufactured by Nelson Bach. These are the 2 main brands of Bach flower remedies manufactured in England.
Nelson Bach Flower Remedies can be found in almost any health food store in the world. Healing Herbs, on the other hand, take a little more work to locate, especially outside of England. However, it is this brand, Healing Herbs, that we feel is the most potent and magical of all English flower remedies on the market.
Potency of flower remedies has as much to do with the healer that prepares the remedies as with the flower itself. As you will see from the information page on Healing Herbs, Julian Barnard seems to have an innate ability in bringing forth the powerful healing properties of the flowers.
I'm surprised you don't have anything about calendula on your site. When I came to Switzerland, my MIL taught me how to make calendula oil and salve for my skin. We use it primarily as lip balm, and to moisturize and protect our skin. It is great for healing (closed) wounds, scratches and scrapes, insect bites, burns, and stretch marks. It protects face and hands in cold weather, minimizes scars, and is effective against neurodermititis.
I make the oil myself, from flowers grown in my garden, but I'm sure you can buy calendula oil easily. I fill a jar with dried petals, cover with extra virgin olive oil, and sit it in a sunny spot until it turns orange (4 to 7 days or so). In summer, I add hemp leaves, for an anti-itch formula for insect bites. For winter, I add a few caps of vitamin E. Afterwards, I strain it through old pantyhose ('cause I'm cheap like that), label with the ingredients and date, and store it in the cellar.
To make the salve from the oil, I warm up 250 dl (about a cup) of the oil in a heat-proof measuring cup set into a pan of water on the stove. I add 50 g (1. 75 oz) of natural beeswax and let it melt. Give it a little stir, and pour into small jars. (I recycle face cream jars and sample-size jelly jars. ) This amount will fill about 5 1-oz jars. I wait until they cool before putting the lids on to prevent condensation.
It is also possible to add other oils and/or scents, either as flowers during the oil-making process or as essential oil during the salve-making process. I like to add lavender to the hemp formula, because I don't like the smell of the hemp, and also because of lavender's antiseptic properties.
The salve will be good for about a year after you open it. When the color fades, it's time for a new batch.
