  Healing Herbs

Healing Herbs provides an alternative source for the 38 English flower essences familiar to practitioners and customers throughout the world.  Healing Herbs™ flower essences are made from the same plant species and with the original methods employed by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s. The name "Bach Flower Remedies®" is often used as a generic term for these remedies. However, this name has been trademarked by the Bach Centre and the Nelson Company to designate their particular brand of the flower remedies of Dr. Bach. Just as there are a number of homeopathic companies that prepare, for example, the Arnica remedy, so there are different flower essence companies that prepare the 38 flower essences and emergency combination originally made by Dr. Bach.

The following descriptions are taken from the Flower Essence Repertory, by Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz, an invaluable resource for information about not only Healing Herbs, but also the FES Quintessentials.

NOTE: The Healing Herbs brand is distributed in the USA by FES, but is not made by FES. Some of the Bach flowers are, however, made by FES as part of their research list, here. Healing Herbs have light blue labels; FES have dark purple labels.
