Proper use of Dr. Bach's Flower Remedies

Proper use of Flower Remedies and Essences depends upon whether the condition you're treating is temporary or chronic.

When using Bach Flowers for a specific and temporary condition – such as stress before an upcoming exam, airline travel, or visit to the dentist – you can use the Feel5ive formula in one of two ways: 

Eight drops in a cup of mineral water, sipped slowly
Four drops under the tongue as needed
For immediate effect, take at least eight drops per day. 

Other temporary conditions might include bitterness over a job loss (Willow), sudden loss or change (Walnut), or an overload of responsibilities (Elm).

For Chronic Conditions: 

If you're using a personal compound to overcome a chronic condition such as depression, fear, lack of confidence, Attention Deficit Disorder, or a smoking addiction: 

Simply use the dropper and take 4 drops under your tongue 4 times per day. (Increase this to 6 times per day during the first few days of treatment.) You should do this upon awakening and at bedtime. Then take 4 drops again sometime during the morning and again sometime during the afternoon. Since the bottle is small, it's easy to carry if you'll be at work most of the day. But for the sake of convenience, you may want to keep one bottle at work and one at home. 

For babies, place a few drops in their water bottle. 

When treating pets, you can give them drops under the tongue, but the easiest method is to place a few drops in their water bowl each time you fill it.
