Bach Flower Remedy System - The 12 Healers

The system Dr. Bach developed is aimed at aligning the personality with the truth of who we are.  It is divided into 3 parts which follow chronologically the order in which the remedies were discovered. The first twelve are known as "The Twelve Healers" which are soul type/archetypal remedies that deal with broad themes such as courage, enthusiasm, compassion, wisdom and balance to name a few.

The ‘Key Words’ used are general headings which the remedies treat and the themes are areas of the personality the remedies help to develop. “Use for" referrers to areas of personality imbalance that the remedies correct. Keep in mind these are general descriptions and serve as a simple guide to beginning to understand the remedies.
