The Bach Original Flower Essences were developed in the 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a physician and homeopath who believed the key to good health was in emotional harmony. 

By 1936, Bach had identified 38 flower essences, each one derived from a different wild flower, plant or tree, and each corresponding to a specific emotion. He spent many years exploring the use of flowers and plants to develop his simple and gentle system of 38 flower essences, setting up The Bach Centre in Oxfordshire, England, where we continue to prepare the essences exactly as he did.   

He believed the system captured the positive potential of the plants and offered a holistic approach for emotional balance. The essences are designed to be tailored to meet each person’s individual needs, so they can be taken individually or in combination.

Nelsons' link with the Bach Original Flower Remedies goes back to the 1930s and Dr Bach himself. As demand grew, Dr Bach supplied us with his concentrated essences, ready for our pharmacists to make up and pass on to the public. Over the years, the relationship between The Bach Centre and Nelsons continued to grow and we now manufacture and distribute the essences across the world.
