The best book I have come across on the remedies.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bach Flower Remedies (Teach Yourself) (Paperback)
The best book I have encountered on Bach remedies. It gives the impression the author really knows his subject unlike some of the other books. After each remedy description there is a case history showing where this remedy may be used, which is essential to go some way to fully understanding the remedy. Also included is a chapter on the subtle differences between remedies which appear to be very similar, which is again essential to fully understand the remedies. The book is packed full of usefull stuff and you really could gain a very full understanding of the remedies from relying on this book alone.
My advice to anyone with an interest in the remedies would be to read as many different books on the subject as possible ( getting a lot of different descriptions of the remedies ) and to try to memorise the basic descriptions of the remedies as soon as you can, so you don't keep having to flick through books every time a remedy is mentioned. I used mnemonics, eg for Honeysuckle - living in the past, I immediately associate the word Honeysuckle with the old song, "honeysuckle rose". Then I imagine a elderly woman sitting round a gramaphone listening to it remembering how great everything was in the old days. And hence I easily recall the description of the remedy.
