Are you making up your own Flower Essence treatment bottles?

Sometimes, some of my patients who live far away and consult with me via Skype, choose to buy remedy stock bottles locally and make up their own treatment bottles.

Often this is the fastest way for them to begin treatment, as, sadly, sometimes the postal system can be slower than we would like.

Here are some suggestions for making up your own remedy treatment bottles.

 

Bach Flower Remedies

When you buy your Bach Flower Remedy stock bottles, also buy a 25mL amber glass dropper bottle. Then you can make a treatment bottle up.

To make up a treatment bottle – add pure water (bottled or filtered) to the amber glass bottle. Fill the bottle 2/3rds full with the water. Add the best quality brandy you can afford to the bottle, until it is almost full. The brandy acts as a preservative. Now you are ready to add the Bach Flower Remedies.

Add 2 drops of your chosen remedy/remedies. If you are adding Rescue Remedy to your treatment bottle, add 4 drops. You can add up to 5 different remedies to each treatment bottle. Dr Bach would sometimes add 7 remedies, and on only 2 occasions he added 9 remedies to one bottle. My recommendation is that you add as few as possible – preferably only 2 or 3. I find that people achieve faster results when they have fewer remedies in their treatment bottles.

When you have added all the remedies you need, put the dropper lid on, and shake the bottle gently to mix everything well.

When you need a dose, simply drop 4 drops of that mix under your tongue.

I would suggest you have 4 doses a day to start with – and decrease when you find your symptoms easing.

The treatment bottle will last 3 weeks. Discard the bottle and any remedy left in the bottle after this time. Do not reuse the bottles and droppers – as it is impossible to sterilise the plastic dropper.

Australian Bush Flower Essences

When you buy your Australian Bush Flower Essence Remedy stock bottles, also ask if you can buy a 25mL amber glass dropper bottle. Then you can make a ‘treatment’ bottle up.

To make up a treatment bottle – add pure water (bottled or filtered) to the amber glass bottle. Fill the bottle 2/3rds full with the water. Add the best quality brandy you can afford to the bottle, until it is almost full. The brandy acts as a preservative. Now you are ready to add the essences.

Add 7 drops of your chosen essence/essences. You can add up to 5 different essences to each treatment bottle. Again, my recommendation is that you add as few as possible – preferably only 2 or 3. Most people achieve faster results when they have fewer remedies in their treatment bottles.

When you have added all the remedies you need, put the dropper lid on, and shake the bottle gently to mix everything well.

When you need a dose, simply drop 7 drops of that mix under your tongue.

I would suggest you have 2 doses a day to start with – and decrease when you find your symptoms easing.

I find that it is best to have Australian Bush Flower Essences first thing in the morning and last thing at night. That dreamy-not-quite-awake-and-not-quite-asleep state is the perfect time for taking these essences. So I keep my treatment bottle on my bedside table.

The treatment bottle will last 3 weeks. Discard the bottle and any essence left in the bottle after this time. Do not reuse the bottles and droppers – as it is impossible to sterilise the plastic dropper.

Does all this sound too hard?

At first, making up treatment bottles can seem complicated. It does get easier as you become more familiar with the process.

However, if you would prefer, you are welcome to contact me, and I am more than happy to send you a treatment bottle in the mail.

    1. Hi Caroline, thank you for your question. I hadn’t thought about this before! I haven’t had any problems posting flower essences through the mail. Patients who have received their remedies in the mail have responded to their remedies just as well as patients I dispense remedies to in my clinic.
