Dr Bach Rescue Remedy is sold in high street chemists and health stores worldwide, endorsed by many for reducing stress and anxiety, aiding sleep, exam nerves …
But, did you know that its creator – Dr Edward Bach died back in 1936?
He was a doctor ahead of his time, who intuited that the energy from flowers could be harnessed, to heal the emotions and in one of his remedies – to heal the the mind. In turn, he felt that the body would heal itself.
He created 38 different flower essences and one combination essence known as Rescue Remedy; it contains five different essences:
- Cherry Plum,
- Rock Rose,
- Star of Bethlehem.
The remaining single essences were subdivided, for healing of seven different types of issues:
- Insufficient interest in present circumstances,
- Over sensitivity to influences and ideas,
- Despondency and despair,
- Over care for the welfare of others.
I have been using various combinations of these essences for more than thirty years now, and they have helped me heal from the premature death of my parents, a miscarriage, divorce, moving home …
New Year is a great time to look at our self care regime. Thus, I will be sharing my favourite Bach Flower essences in a series of posts…
