Is it possible for Dr. Bach Flowers to become habit-forming?
Dr. Bach Flower Essences are not habit-forming, since they consist of no physical substance and are merely taken to reestablish harmony. When a person’s balance has been restored, an Essence has no further effect.
At this point a person may lose interest, forget to take the drops, or misplace the bottle—all signs that the treatment has succeeded. Even psychological dependence is impossible because a well-chosen combination has the effect of strengthening Inner Guidance.
Step by step these measures lead to increased inner freedom, independence, and self-reliance. Thus the Flowers’ effect creates the opposite of dependency.
