Bach Flower Remedies

I use and recommend these as a way to ease overwhelming mental or emotional experiences that may be holding one back from reaching their desired state of mental or physical health. I’ve been known to refer to them as “Bach Drops” or Bach Flower Essences, these remedies are homeopathic in nature created to alleviate the emotional and/or mental components that may be interfering with physical healing or overall well-being. The come in 15ml dropper bottles and can be placed directly under the tongue or in any liquid. They can be used multiple times a day.

Most remedies are available in the office.
