Bach Flower Remedy Repertory

This is a repertory-style remedy selection guide, with a list of common mental and emotional states. The options are not exhaustive, but they will get you started on exploring the remedies. You should read about each remedy carefully to determine it is the best fit for your case.

It is best to select a maximum of 6 remedies for use at one time. Consider what is most urgent or important to resolve now. After some days or weeks, you can re-evaluate the symptoms and continue to use the same blend or come up with a new list of remedies, as appropriate.
