Dr. Edward Bach's workspace

Helping since 1930

Explore our brand story and the empowering mission of Dr. Bach

We have Dr. Edward Bach to thank for our RESCUE REMEDY®. Always look for his signature as a signal of endorsement & quality.

In the 1920s, he was a successful doctor in Harley Street, London. His dissatisfaction with the way doctors focused on the disease rather than the person who was suffering, inspired him to abandon his practice and dedicate his life to researching nature to develop a new system of medicine — one that would be purer and less reliant on the symptoms of a disease.

Dr. Bach believed that attitude and mental state play a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illnesses. Over the following years he researched and identified 38 negative states of mind and a corresponding flower or plant remedy as a positive resolution for each one.

Next step was to make his flower remedies available to everyone. So in the 1930s, Dr. Bach enlisted the help of the Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy in Duke St, London to make and sell his Mother Tinctures. In 1990, this relationship was formalized and since then Nelsons (the Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy’s parent company) has been responsible for bottling and distributing RESCUE REMEDY®. We are the only ones entrusted with his signature — always look for this as a sign of authenticity and quality.

The Mother Tinctures used in all RESCUE REMEDY® products are still made at the Bach Centre in Mount Vernon, Oxfordshire, England — just as they were 80 years ago — and sent to our factory in Wimbledon, London where millions of products are produced every year and distributed to over worldwide.
