Most commonly, the Bach Flower Remedies are taken from a dropper bottle. From the dropper bottle, simply put four drops onto or under the tongue and hold the dose for a few seconds before swallowing.
Alternately, from the remedy bottle, you can add four drops to a glass of water or to a water bottle and sip throughout the day.
You need four doses (drops from the dropper bottle), four times a day. The first dose is upon getting up in the morning; two other doses during the day, and last dose is just before bed.

Up to seven remedies can be mixed together in a remedy bottle. Too many remedies taken together will mask the issue and will prevent the other remedies from working effectively.
A treatment bottle will typically last 3-4 weeks.
