Bach flower remedies and the enneagram

bachflowerenneagram

Bach Flower remedies and the enneagram can work together. Bach flower remedies were created by Edward Bach, an English doctor, who used flower essences on himself and his patients to replace negative emotional states with positive ones. Certain remedies are better for certain enneagram types’ fundamental nature (listed below); however, any type can experience the whole range of human emotion and mental states. Take one or more than one (they can be mixed together).
