Essences for Children

A Quick Guide to Using Bach Flower Remedies and Flower, Gem & Crystal Essences with Children

Children respond very quickly to vibrational essences so it is important to choose the most appropriate type of essence when using them with children, particularly babies or very young children.

Here are some general guidelines & suggestions for different age groups...

0 – 7 years:-

For this age range we normally recommend that you only use Crystal Herbs Bach Flower Remedies. A well-chosen combination of not more than 4 or 5 remedies will very quickly help to bring children back into balance.

Most children enjoy taking their drops directly onto their tongues, however you could also add them to their drinks. 4 drops 4 x a day is normally enough at this age. For babies the remedies can be added to the bath water or dabbed on the pulse points on the body.

Here are a few suggestions to help you get started:


8 – 12 years:-

Bach Flower Remedies are also very effective with this age group, however we suggest that you increase the frequency of the dosage to 4 drops 6 x a day.

You could also introduce some of our individual flower and gem essences at this age. Start with one at a time perhaps 4 drops 2 x a day - this will probably be enough for most children.

Towards the top of this age range you could mix up to 3 individual essences into a combination - maximum dosage 4 drops 3 x a day.
