Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936) was bacteriologist and pathologist at the Royal Homeopathic Hospital London. Very early-on he recognised the connection between physical and mental wellbeing. His interest in a holistic and natural approach to medicine led him to experiment with plants and research folk medicine.

In 1930 he left his job and London for good and moved to the countryside in North Wales where he dedicated himself completely to the research of plants (particularly flowers) and their effect on the psyche. Six years later he had developed his healing method based on 38 components (36 flower essences, 1 bud essence and 1 spring water), acting on different mental conditions, known as ‘Bach Flower Remedy System’. Nowadays much of the world population, including qualified doctors, psychologists and vets make use of this alternative and vibrational healing method.
