Bach Flower Remedies Hornbeam
Advantages: Calmed and relaxed me when I was stressed, made me feel better
Disadvantages: Nasty taste if taken directly, but fine when in water for me.
Over 75 years ago, Dr Bach invented 38 homeopathic remedies made using the natural extracts of flowers. One of the 38 varieties, the Hornbeam flower remedy is designed to be taken by people who feel that life is getting on top of them, and for those who feel that they are overburdened and unable to cope with the stresses of life.
I have previously tried several different kinds of the Bach flower remedies and have had good results, so when I felt overstressed due to work and family issues, I though I would give this a try.
I bought a bottle of Hornbeam flower remedy at an online homeopathy shop for £4 for a 20ml bottle. I find that buying flower remedies online is easier as from my experience, it can be hard to find the full range of 38 varieties on the high street, although chemists like Boots do tend to stock a decent range of them.
The Hornbeam flower remedy comes in a small glass bottle with a pipette top, very much like an eye dropper, which makes dispensing drops very easy. The remedy itself is made from Hornbeam infused with natural spring water and a grape brandy alcohol preservative to keep the flower remedy fresh and potent.
The drops of flower remedy can either be taken directly onto the tongue, which although I find to be the easiest way I really don't like as I can't stand the taste. It's too alcoholic for me and reminds me of ethanol from school lab days! The other recommended method is to put drops (I use between 3 and 5 depending on how stressed I feel) into a glass of water and then sipping it. I really prefer using this method, as although it's not as instant, it tastes just like a normal glass of water instead of alcoholic.
Whilst homeopathic remedies like Dr Bach's Hornbeam flower remedy might not work for all people, I find that it had a positive effect for me. When I first used this, it only took about 30 minutes before I felt less stressed, and more able to deal with the problems I was facing. I felt much more capable of coping and acting decisively, and felt more positive in general. Some people think homeopathic remedies in general are a placebo but given it helped my mood improve, made me feel better and only cost £4, I think it's well worth trying even if you are initially cynical about the benefits.
Summary: Natural product that made me feel much less stressed and more able to cope.
