Bach Rescue Remedy.
Original Flower Remedies.
Bach flower remedies were developed in the 1930's by Edward Bach, an English scientist. He believed that dew found on flowers have healing properties and so can be used to help calm people in stressful situations. The remedies are considered to be alternative medicines as they are made up of natural ingredients.
Why Did I Need This Product?
I have always been a confident flyer. In fact, I still am, when I am flying with friends or family. It is only when I fly on my own that I get quite nervous. I am not sure why but anxiety takes over and although I have never not got on a flight, sometimes I have been a bit scared and tempted not to. My mum recommended that I buy some of this rescue remedy to use when I start to feel panicky. I was a bit sceptical at first and always put off buying some until I was in the airport one day and I decided to give it a go. I wasn't sure if it was going to work or not but I was willing to give it a shot.
How Much Did It Cost?
I bought a 10ml bottle of the drops from Boots and it cost me £5.50.
How Did I Use It?
The directions recommend that you add 4 drops into water and sip or place 4 drops directly onto the tongue. The remedy does not taste nice at all so the thought of diluting it to me is worse than quickly swallowing it. I prefer to place the drops directly onto my tongue as it is quick and effective. The bottle is only small and comes with a rubber top which you squeeze before unscrewing the lid to suck up the remedy. To use you simply place on your tongue and squeeze the rubber top once again to release the remedy. Sometimes I have just used two drops of remedy opposed to the recommended four and it has still had the same results. The liquid itself is a yellow colour and it smells and tastes very strongly of alcohol. Despite this the remedy has not got an alcohol content, it is just the solution that gives this impression. The remedy does not taste very pleasant at the time of use however there is no bad aftertaste which is a plus. The bottle is very light and convenient to carry around in your handbag. Also there is a long use-by date on it so it will last for a few years after the date of purchase.
The ingredients are as follows: 5x dilution of flower extracts of Rock Rose, Impatiens, Clematis, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum in a grape alcohol solution.
Is It Effective?
I was very surprised at how quickly and effectively this remedy worked. I wasn't expecting much so the results were fantastic. I took a few drops before my flight, the day I bought it, and as I boarded the plane all worry left me. I felt very relaxed and I struggled to conjure up any feelings of anxiety. Since that day I have used this remedy on many occasions when I have felt stressed and it has always calmed me down. This rescue remedy is very useful and it is very reassuring to know that it is in my handbag. I definitely do not use the remedy very often, if I was to use it in an ordinary situation then I would not feel its results. I only ever use the remedy in times of severe panic or worry. I definitely do not enjoy the taste of the remedy but it is worthwhile putting up with to combat those nerves.
Would I Buy It Again?
I would definitely buy these drops again or try other Bach products. I find it very interesting that a flower remedy can be so calming and useful. I would definitely recommend this product however I would not recommend using it too much, only in situations where you will benefit from it.
Thank you for reading : )
