Bach Remedies and their Corresponding Crystals, Part 1
Bach Remedies (a.k.a. Bach Flower Essences) are the brand names for the 38 different homeopathic liquids developed by British physician Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s. He found that certain plants have beneficial influence on our emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being and made water & alcohol-based dilutions of the plant essences for various imbalances that may affect an individual.
Based on his descriptions of each remedy, we have come up with corresponding crystals and affirmations to assist you in the healing process. This is a five-part series.
“[For] the jovial, cheerful, humorous people who love peace and are distressed by argument or quarrel, to avoid which they will agree to give up much. Though generally they have troubles and are tormented and restless and worried in mind or in body, they hide their cares behind their humor and jesting and are considered very good friends to know. They often take alcohol or drugs in excess, to stimulate them and help themselves bear their trials with cheerfulness.” – Dr. Edward Bach
