The Bach flower remedies form a system of complementary therapy based on treating the emotions. While the system has been used successfully worldwide for over 80 years, the 36 plants from which the remedies are obtained are sometimes forgotten. In this full-day workshop, after a brief introduction to the remedies, the plants will take centre stage. Traditional and modern uses of the plants will be explored including their use as sources of materials, their other medicinal benefits, culinary uses and numerous other weird and wonderful applications. Weather-permitting, we’ll also visit some of the remedy plants growing in the Garden.
