Making your own alcohol free flower remedies
The flower remedies that you buy at the stock level of dilution (single essences) are preserved in alcohol between 18%-40%, depending on the individual makers. Aquarius Flower Remedies single essences are preserved in a mixture of brandy and water and contain 18% alcohol by volume. Brandy is by far the most common source for the alcohol because it was used by the creator of flower remedies, Dr. Bach. However, he created them to be diluted down to such levels that the alcohol is negligable.
