Complementary and alternative medicines have long been employed for a wide range of emotional concerns.
They use naturally derived substances to help support the body and mind, in what is seen as an holistic approach, where the body and mind are considered as a whole.
Bach flower remedies usually come in a liquid form, which you can drop onto your tongue or else mix with water to drink.
These liquids can be taken individually or combined with other essences to offer support with a range of negative emotions.
But if you would prefer an alternative to liquid drops, these flower remedies are also available as tablets, chewing gum, lozenges and as a spray, which can be sprayed directly onto the tongue.
Since homeopathic remedies are made with minute amounts of natural substances from plants and minerals, they are non-toxic and considered safe.
Homeopathy is considered suitable for all people at all stages of life.

They come in a handy, portable dropper bottle which you can pop in your bag to take with you on the go.
