In the early 1930's the noted British physician and scientist,
Dr. Edward Bach, discovered that the preparation of 38 flowering
plants, trees and special waters alleviated a broad range of
emotional and psychological difficulties. Bach also developed a
highly effective combination emergency rescue formula for the
relief of stress during acute stressful situations. "Rescue
Remedy" is regarded as the panacea Remedy, having the ability to
calm and distress any situation especially, those created by
traumatic incidents where an animal was terrorized, injured, or
But, how does one know what emotions dogs, cats, horses and all
animals are experiencing? You would be surprised as to how easy
it is to "read" an animal. All it takes is some observation and
a little insight. You might discover that animals take less
effort than humans do!
The Bach Remedies can be taken directly from the stock bottle
or from the personal dilution bottle by placing 2 - 4 drops in
your animal's feed or water. The Remedies are easy and
convenient to use with varied methods of application that can be
selected to suit an individual's specific needs.
The most common forms of administering the Remedies are placing
them into the animal's food or water; dropping them directly
into the animal's mouth; or rubbing the needed remedies on one's
hands before petting them.
There is no improper or wrong method of applying the Bach
Remedies. It is truly not necessary to be precise in counting
the number of drops in any of the dilution methods. The
suggestions given, herein, are merely to offer a reasonable
parameter of accepted dilution methods. Follow your own judgment
and insights. Remember that you cannot overdose the Remedies for
they are non-toxic.
