Blue Bach Flowers and their positive potential
This beautiful blue flower encourages a trust of one’s own inner wisdom and the courage to follow it. Self-assurance and decisiveness and living to your own ideals and not be influenced by others.
A blue composite flower a member of the Daisy family. People who can care for others without becoming possessive or controlling. They can give love without wanting anything in return. They are sensitive to the needs of others and love them unconditionally.

- “…beneficial to the industrialised world”… “nature is dressed in green”. ( Quoted from “ The American Secrets of Crystal Healing” by Luc Bourgault)
- Chakra- Heart

Green Bach Flowers and their positive potential
(The female flowers are grey-green and are used along with the grey male flowers to make the remedy.) A state of inner peace ( cf Green Jade above!)The positive Aspen has no fear, no apprehension. Dr Bach said: “The cause of all our troubles is self and separateness, and this vanishes as soon as Love and the knowledge of the great Unity becomes part of our natures”.
Can make decisions; no fear of life; confident that if an error occurs it is part of life and at least an opportunity hasn’t been missed.
- Sweet Chestnut
Just like this tall strong tree “ … demonstrates a life force that is quite exceptional, capable of carrying aloft into the sunlight the exhausted spirit of those who have wrestled in the darkness below” ( Quoted from The Healing Herbs of Edward Bach by Julian and Martine Barnard) A person is released from despair; optimism and peace of mind is the outcome. The “dark night of the soul” experience having passed gives a sense of support from within.
The flowers from the natural wild-type are used not those from the cultivated vines of the vineyards. Vine gives a positive more understanding attitude towards others without having to domineer. Good is seen in others who are encouraged and guided without controlling. Wisdom pervades and the positive vine person inspires people with confidence.
Constancy and protection from outside influences. The positive Walnut is no longer tempted to deviate from their own path in life; however strong the opinions of others may seem. Important life changes are helped by Walnut e.g. giving birth; puberty; menopause; ageing etc. Life changes that some people find difficult to cope with and accept.
