Flower & Herbal Remedies

A couple of drops of flower essence on the tongue can often prove most efficacious. If you’re feeling indecisive and dithery - try scleranthus. Find yourself unaccountably down in the dumps? Mustard should buck you up. Even an acute emotion such as terror may be assuaged with four drops of rock rose taken every half hour until equilibrium is restored.

Back in the 1930s, Dr Edward Bach became so convinced of the healing qualities of plants that he relinquished a respectable Harley Street medical practice to develop his eponymous range of flower remedies.

Dr Bach was a Physician and Homeopath who spent his life searching for the purest methods of healing. He discovered 38 remedies which he split into seven different groups and which can be combined to suit the individual. The flower remedies are made from wild plants, trees and bushes and work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms.

I am a great believer in Bach’s Rescue® Remedy which has been used successfully on stressful days where we suffer from impatience, tension and pressure. Rescue® Remedy can help with relaxation, focus and calmness. It contains:

  • Impatiens: For those who act and think quickly, and have no patience for what they see as the slowness of others. It teaches empathy and understanding of and patience with others. It is very fast-acting in alleviating an impatient attitude and lowering stress.
  • Star of Bethlehem: For trauma and shock, whether experienced recently or in the past. Teaches the ability to recover from traumas and to integrate them into the present life.
  • Cherry Plum: For those who fear losing control of their thoughts and actions and doing things they know are bad for them or which they consider wrong. Teaches trust in one's spontaneous wisdom and the courage to follow one's path.
  • Rock Rose: For situations in which one experiences panic or terror.
  • Clematis: For those who find their lives unhappy and withdraw into fantasy worlds. They are ungrounded and indifferent to the details of everyday life. Teaches one to establish a bridge between the physical world and the world of ideas; may foster great creativity. Is also used to bring clarity and alertness to the present moment.
