MANAGE YOUR EMOTIONS, FULFIL YOUR POTENTIAL
In the 1920s and 30s, a noted homeopath called Dr Edward Bach discovered a system of flower remedies that can help us rediscover the positive side of ourselves. He believed, as many doctors do today, that attitude of mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. When he died in 1936 he had developed a complete system of 38 flower remedies and also the famous Rescue® Remedy, each prepared from the flowers of wild plants, trees and bushes. The remedies work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms. Still made at Mount Vernon, the home of Dr Bach, Bach Original Flower Remedies are the only flower essences bearing Edward Bach's signature.
...is known as the cleansing remedy, and as such is the added 'sixth ingredient' in the cream version of Dr Bach's original crisis formula. Its main use is to help people who dislike some aspect of their appearance or personality, or feel that they have something unclean or poisonous about them.
Sometimes in a Crab Apple state we disregard genuine problems and concentrate obsessively on one thing that we have fixed on - sometimes a quite minor aspect of the whole. We might take Crab Apple to cleanse obsessive, repetitive behaviour such as hand-washing, re-checking that appliances are unplugged, and so on.
Dr Bach's description
This is the remedy of cleansing. For those who feel as if they had something not quite clean about themselves. Often it is something of apparently little importance: in others there may be more serious disease which is almost disregarded compared to the one thing on which they concentrate. In both types they are anxious to be free from the one particular thing which is greatest in their minds and which seems so essential to them that it should be cured. They become despondent if treatment fails. Being a cleanser, this remedy purifies wounds if the patient has reason to believe that some poison has entered which must be drawn out.

|Size and form||20 ml|
|Directions Of Use||How to take the remedies
You can take the remedies in several ways, and the instructions here are designed to be easy to remember. Taking larger doses at one time doesn't have a stronger effect; but if you are going through a crisis you can take more frequent doses to get you through it.
The 'glass of water' method
For short-term moods and problems put two drops of each selected remedy in a glass of water. Sip as often as required until relief is obtained. If using the pre-mixed emergency formula, add four drops to the glass instead of two.
You can use this method for longer-term problems as well. Just sip from the glass throughout the day, at least four times a day - and keep the glass in the 'fridge or make up a fresh glass each day.
For more chronic problems we recommend making up a treatment bottle, as it is cheaper and will make your precious stock remedies go further. Simply:
Get an empty 30ml bottle with a dropper in the lid (try the local pharmacy)
Add to the bottle two drops of each selected remedy (and/or four drops of the pre-mixed emergency formula)
Top the bottle up with still (i.e. not fizzy) mineral water
From this bottle take four drops, at least four times a day Treatment bottles will last two or three weeks if you keep them cool - in the fridge, for example. If that isn't possible - maybe you live somewhere warm or will be carrying the bottle around in your pocket - add a teaspoon of brandy to the treatment bottle before topping up with water. This will help keep the water from going off. If you don't want to use brandy, use cider vinegar or glycerine instead.
Direct on the tongue
You can also take remedies 'neat', without diluting them. This is the most expensive way to take remedies and tastes strongly of brandy (unless you are using a stock remedy bottled in glycerine etc.), so is not recommended - but it is just as effective.
To make it easy to remember, you take the same number of drops when taking a neat stock remedy as you do when you are mixing remedies in a treatment bottle or glass of water: two drops, direct on the tongue.
If you are taking the the pre-mixed emergency formula the dosage is four drops, again direct on the tongue.
In either case, repeat as necessary - for long-term treatments, at least four times a day.
