Understanding Bach Flower “Drop” Directions
The instructions for Bach Flower essences are not always that clear. Here is a handy guideline (Rasmussen, 2012):
- Place the drops of the Bach Flower essence directly under the tongue. (Be sure not to touch the dropper on the skin). For example, use 4 drops for Rescue Remedy as per the label.
- For emotions from a new event, add 2 to 4 drops (see the label) to a glass of natural spring water and sip from that glass throughout the day. Use this method for up to 3 days.
- Issues taking longer than 3 days to resolve, require making a treatment bottle. Place 4 drops from the treatment bottle directly under the tongue, 4 times per day.
Treatment bottle instructions:
- You will need: empty mixing bottle (1 oz / 30 ml), Bach Flower essences, and natural spring water.
- Add 2 to 4 drops each (see the label) of the Bach Flower essences into the empty mixing bottle.
- Fill the rest of the way up with the natural spring water.
- Label the treatment bottle.
