I want to make up my own little remedy using a 3 or 4 different stock remedies in a 30ml bottle.

I know you can add 2 drops of each remedy to the 30ml bottle and then fill it with spring water but this only gives it a short shelf life 2/3 weeks. I would prefer to make it up and use some brandy to preserve it but I don't know what the quantity of brandy is that I would use in a 30ml bottle given that the stock remedies also contain brandy too.

Help?

Not having done the practitioner training I can only go on what my friend has done for me which is to add to a 30ml bottle and fill with spring water. The argument would be that after three weeks of using the remedy you may find you no longer need that particular one and it is time to move on. The stock bottles you buy have as you know a very long shelf life so if after three weeks you felt you needed the same remedy you just remix. I found however that if I was taking as instructed 3-4 drops 3-4 times a day there was generally very little left at the end of three weeks anyway and in my experience that was long enough for a particular blend of remedies.

Hopefully there is someone with practitioner training/experience who can give you a better answer.

Why keep the Bach remedies blend for more than 3 weeks????

Hi Nell,

A dilution for Bach remedies is done as you said with:
a 30 ml dropper
fill with 1 spoon of alcool (apprx 5 ml)
and 25 ml of spring water.

I do not count the drops of each flower you add to this, ok?

So with this percentage (5 ml alcool + 25 ml water) the blend has 3 weeks life.

After these 3 weeks, the blend is still efficient ( I mean on a vibrational level).
It doesn't lost his potential (if you store it safelly of course) BUT it may happen it become trouble (kind of snow inside...I said "floconne" and if you smel it you may find it doesn't smell something you would enjoy to drink either (but you may have hard time to kill or intoxicate anyone with 2 drops of the "more-than-3- weeks-Bach-flower-remedies". πŸ˜‰

If you do it yourself and want to keep it longer:
Simply change the part of water for alcool and you will be fine.
With the 30 ml only fill with alcool you will be able to keep it as long as a stock bottle (that is for years);)

Otherwise, you just have to know:
1 - 3 weeks is the recommand time for taking a blend.
2 - a Blend is done for your special mood at a special time.So if you keep it, save it for let said next month, it might be totally not usefull if not relevant as you might be a totally different personn form the one you are today.
3- if you do not take the blend for 3 weeks long, you may not be able to see it potential.
4 - Bach flower remedies are vibrational healing
=> if you do not give time to your body to go through the stage of its evolution you may miss any expected improvment.

Can I ask you why you want to keep it longer than 3 weeks?
If you do not have intention to take it for the full advise time maybe are you not ready to do it.
I would advise you to delay your treatment.
Flowers should be taken when we are confortable and willing to do so.

It must not be something to do without being dedicated to it.

Bach flower remedies is an easy way of healing but you are the most important part of it.
You are an activ part of the healing process.
You need to want to it.
You have to be dedicated to it.

If not, you may jeopardise the results you can expect from the Bach remedies.

Can I just add that you should take the remedy for as long as you feel it's necessary.

Personally I have rarely taken an essence for just 3 weeks. I suppose it depends on what you're trying to heal and how deep seated it is but in my experience it takes much longer than 3 weeks for complete healing.

I don't really feel any of the above applies to me since I never do anything without putting my whole heart into first it hun lol!!!

I am a qualified crystal healer and reflexologist and have a great interest in all things holistic but have only just got into Bach Flower remedies via Rescue Remedy.

The only reason I asked is like Rosi1 says it maybe I might need to take my remedy mix for longer than 3 weeks because I have a few longer term issues to deal with.

However it does seem that if I have the stock bottles then I could just make up somemore fresh every couple of weeks anyway.

Thank you all xxxxx

So if you know the Bach and the rescue for long time, and are now thinking about taking care of you now with the flower it might be good time for you now πŸ˜‰

Enjoy your essences πŸ™‚ I wish you they will lead you to meet the better you πŸ˜‰

Hi! I have been having all sorts of terrible rashes on my hands/fingers. I am a yoga instructor and any lotions we use for assisting in class seems to cause trouble. My fingers would alternately itch and bleed. What has really helped me is the Bach's Rescue Cream. I was wondering if you could provide any assistance on how I could make my own Rescue Cream/balm--maybe using coconut oil? Any idea what the proportions would be? thank you!!!!

Making is is pretty easy. All you need is a cream that you like (if you can find one that does not irritate you, then choose that one.)

Get a bottle of Rescue Remedy tm and a bottle of Crab Apple.

Mix 4-8 drops of the rescue remedy into 30ml bottle of water and 2-4 drops of the crab apple into same bottle.
Shake and then mix it into the cream.

You can also add the drops directly from the bottle. I usually use around 20 drops of each.

I hope this helps.

I'm not a Bach practitioner but am an Australian Bush Flower Essence advanced one and with those its about 1/3 of a 30ml bottle of brandy to preserve then the spring water and essences. Hope this helps.
