Is taking only single-Flower Essences more effective than taking combinations?

This question is frequently asked by classical homeopaths, and the answer is basically no. According to Bach Flower Therapy, every crisis situation is characterized by a constellation of different negative behavior patterns.

The more complete the analysis of the constellation of patterns, the more precise will be the harmonizing effect of the Flower combination.

One exception can be found in later stages of Bach Flower Therapy, when a patient concentrates for a longer period of time on dealing with a specific problem such as guilt. This becomes a practical option only after you have worked extensively on your personal behavior patterns.
