Anxiety - Bach Flower Essences

Updated: Feb 9

Flower essences are something those with anxieties should have on hand.

This 2012 study suggests having the 'rescue remedy' on hand.

"Rescue Remedy,” manufactured by Nelsons, contains five flower essences: Rock Rose to alleviate terror and panic, Impatiens to mollify irritation and impatience, Clematis to combat inattentiveness, Star of Bethlehem to ease shock, and Cherry Plum to calm irrational thoughts. Available in a spray bottle or drop form, it helps to provide better emotional balance and fast, convenient relief from everyday stress. " Sounds like Rock Rose and Cherry Plum essences may be the most beneficial. But there are synergies in composite formulas, so... don't try to outguess those that have gone before us.

Another suggestion is to make your own formula of Aspen, Red Chest, White Chest, and Rock Rose. And have fun doing it, to boot:

  • Aspen: Unknown fears. Vague unknown fears, for which there can be given no explanation, no reason.

  • Red Chestnut: Fear that something bad is going to happen to your loved ones.

  • Rock Rose: Frozen fear, extreme terror, shouting, screaming in terror

  • Elm: If you feel overwhelmed, too much to do, not enough time.

  • White Chestnut: If you have repeated unwanted thoughts or worries.
