How to Use Rescue Remedy

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on How to Use Rescue Remedy

How to use Rescue RemdyRescue Remedy is the most popular flower essence in the world. And, understanding How to Use Rescue Remedy is important.  Rescue Remedy is easy to use and it is a good formula to have on hand for emergency situations. It has received much attention in the last year due to its recommendation by Dr. Oz.

But, even with all the press you still may be wondering how to use Rescue Remedy. And understanding how to use Rescue Remedy will help you get the most benefit from this formula. In this post I will define for you what the formula is and what it is not, when to use it and when not to. And most importantly how to use Rescue Remedy.

What is Rescue Remedy?

Rescue Remedy is a combination of 5 flower remedies, hence its other common name Five Flower Formula. The five Bach flower remedies in Rescue Remedy are:

  1. Cherry Plum – prevents fear of overwhelm and loss of control
  2. Clematis – grounds the mind
  3. Impatiens – calms the mind
  4. Rock Rose – prevents panic
  5. Star of Bethlehem – clears the effects of trauma

This specific set of essences was chosen because they work synergistically to help ground, steady and support the mind and emotions. This formula was designed to be supportive in times of trauma, intense stress, panic and accidents. These are all times when a situation may get the best of us. And they are times when we need to have our wits about us to cope effectively. Essentially Rescue Remedy is a mental and emotional shock absorber. And, learning how to use Rescue Remedy in appropriate times is important.

Rescue Remedy is not an everyday solution to your chronic stress and anxiety. Rescue Remedy always was intended for short-term use. If you are in need of help for chronic conditions I highly advise you to schedule an online assessment. Then we can effectively address the reasons for your stress and anxiety.

How to Use Rescue Remedy

There are many situations where Rescue Remedy is appropriate these situations include:

  • Accidents
  • Injuries
  • Illness
  • Receiving bad news

To get the most benefit from Rescue Remedy, use it just after an accident, injury or trauma. Depending on the severity of your trauma you may want to use it every 20 minutes until you feel stable. And, you can continue to use Rescue Remedy 4 times a day for up to 5 day after an accident. This will help to clear trauma from and prevent it from taking hold in your body or psyche.

For minor acute stress use Rescue Remedy as needed. Rescue Remedy is not a crutch, if you need assistance with a persistent issue you will need to dig a little deeper to root out the causes. In this type of situation is good to work with a trained flower essence therapist. This is my specialty, helping people to clear out root causes of their disharmony.

All the best to you on your healing journey.

Benefits of Rescue Remedy

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Benefits of Rescue Remedy

benefits of rescue remedyRescue Remedy or as it is also known Five Flower Formula is a popular flower essence combination formulated by Dr. Edward Bach. The benefits of Rescue Remedy include relief from stress and anxiety. It was originally designed for acute situations and is most beneficial when used this way. There is no danger of overusing it but it will be felt most when used as directed.

An acute situation is one that is short in duration and one with immediate consequences. It is a situation that comes on rapidly and moves rapidly. An acute situation where Rescue Remedy would be helpful is anxiety caused by running late for an important meeting. Example being stuck in traffic due to an accident. This is acute, it is immediate and will pass. Rescue remedy can be used in many situations such as this.  Other examples:

  • Nervousness around meeting someone new
  • Giving a presentation/job interview
  • Starting a new job
  • Initial shock of receiving bad news, upsetting phone call
  • Fight with a loved one
  • First day of school for a child
  • Also good for cuts, burns, scrapes, bruises or other accident related trauma

There are thousands of more nuanced acutely stressful situations that Rescue Remedy would serve. Look at what is present in your life I am sure there is an application.

The Benefits of Rescue Remedy

So what are the benefits of Rescue Remedy?

  • Improves emotional and mental recovery from shock and trauma
  • Grounds your energy and awareness helping you to focus
  • Brings calm where there has been unsteadiness
  • Helps you stay focused and centered
  • Smooths emotional reactivity helping you to act rationally
  • Enhances emotional and mental stability

These are some of the main benefits of Rescue Remedy. I have seen it help people feel more like themselves when they are sick, ate too much or suffering from PMS pains. The uses and benefits of Rescue Remedy are many and varied. And, with that said I want to caution against trying to use this for chronic conditions. It was not designed for this. For chronic conditions seek the guidance of a flower essence therapist.

Bach Remedies for Sleep

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Bach Remedies for Sleep

Sleep is like a dream come true for those that find it and a nightmare for those whom it eludes. Insomnia can lead to deep frustration and dissatisfaction. Sometimes we have a hard sleeping due to immediate circumstances and sometimes it is chronic. There are many reasons why a good nights sleep is important and  there are a number of Bach Remedies that can help you get a good nights rest.

Bach Remedies for Sleep

White Chestnut
Key among the 38 Remedies is White Chestnut, this remedy aids the mind to slow down its mental chatter and incessant thought cycling to bring about a restful mind. The great thing about this remedy is that you can use it for acute situations. My suggestion is to keep a bottle near your bed and take 2 drops directly from the stock bottle before laying down to sleep.

Rescue Remedy
Next on list would be Rescue Remedy, the essences in this combination are helpful to curb acute anxiety and stress. It would be wise to consider Rescue Remedy when you are going through stressful or troubling times and this is the cause of your insomnia.

In general Vervain is for the high strung type, the constant doer who is always on the go and planning what is next. Vervain flower essences will assist this type to take a more relaxed less edgy approach to life and tasks. Those needing this essence would be wise to consider using it throughout the day to assist with a more relaxed approach to life that will then translate to better sleep.

Similar to Vervain, Impatiens is more of a type remedy and from the name we can glean that this essence helps with impatience. Those needing this remedy may be generally impatient types or just going through a cycle where their patience is being tested. This is a great remedy that helps us to slow down and take a more eased approach to life. This remedy can also be used safely throughout the day.

Bach Remedies are safe to use long term or on a temporary basis. They are non habit forming and non addictive. They simply help adjust underlying reasons that lead to sleep disturbances in the first place. It is also suggested to look at your lifestyle to see what might need adjustment. Maybe you need to stop drinking caffeine after 3 pm or not eat so late. But whatever the reason Bach Remedies can be of great assistance on a path of balance.

Please note Bach Flower Remedies promote balance, which is a wholly personal experience also note that any of these remedies can be taken throughout the day to promote balance. They will not cause drowsiness or sleepiness throughout the day, they will promote balance and this will no doubt leaving you feeling happier and healthier.
