Colors and the Bach Flower Remedies

√ Updated: September 14, 2010

Color Energy HealingDr. Edward Bach, a London physician in the 19th century, believed that disease is a manifestation of negative mental states. He classifies all negative states into seven major groups. Each of these groups had certain homeopathic flower remedies that would help to dispel the negative state and thus bring about physical, emotional and mental healing. These states were related to a pair of complementary colors as shown below.

A few drops of the diluted remedies, similar to homeopathic remedies, are taken daily until the condition is alleviated. There are Bach flower remedy practitioners carrying his work forward all over the world today. The chart below indicates the thirty eight remedies that Bach developed, their colors and the states of mind they are intended to treat.
