🌳 ELM Overwhelm can be caused by so many things, lets take an overwhelm of this time of year – some people find it so overwhelming with so much to do and the pressure that people feel under, and that overwhelm is what I would think of as Elm – too much responsibility and you;re the one keeping it all together. An example of Elm is someone who has been made a supervisor at work, and temporarily this is too much and they are overwhelmed with that position. It’s usually temporary.Read More
🌳 OAK If however you are overwelmed because you’ve done so much, you’ve kept going and kept going and you’re the sort of person everyone relies on, well closely associated with Elm is Oak – for the person who has worn themselves out for going too long.
🌾 VERVAIN All sort of overwhelmed. Some overwhelm is down to your choice – as you’ve decided, you’ve had to do this or that – had to write all those Christmas cards, had to…..well that would be Vervain for someone who burns the candle at both ends, but it’s their choice – and they do too much and wear themselves out.
🌿 CENTUAURY Or it could be that you over overwhelmed as you cant say no – being a doormat – oh can you look after the dog, the children, stay in for a parcel delivery – and you always say Yes, and then you start feeling resentful – that is Centaury personality – taking Centaury will mean you can say No without guilt.

Introduction to Bach Remedies
I’d like to introduce you to the Bach flower Remedies. Many people have heard of Rescue Remedy (perhaps some of you have used it?) It is used by all sorts of people to cope with crises and everyday emergencies, going to the dentist, flying, exam nerves, giving talks!– they keep a little bottle like this in their bag or pocket and put four drops on the tongue when needed.
There are also 38 individual flower remedies that are part of the same system of medicine that treats the emotions rather than the physical problems. Dr Edward Bach discovered these remedies and was a well-known bacteriologist and homeopath with a successful Harley Street practice. His researches led to a series of oral vaccines that are still used to today..
His work was acclaimed but he wasn’t satisfied and wanted to replace the vaccines with plant material – he felt that you shouldn’t have to poison someone to make them better. He also saw that two people could be suffering from the same disease, one gets better and one doesn’t. Bach was more interested in the people suffering disease than in the diseases themselves – an idea than was unusual at that time (1928).
Well-balanced people got better physically because their bodies were quite literally free to heal themselves. Dr Bach believed that negative states were ultimately responsible for the disease and so treatment of the underlying cause was vital. Y
ou might wonder how something so simple can offer such remarkable benefits, but everything in nature has its own special part to play. There are a great many homeopathic, herbal and orthodox medicines derived from plants and the Bach Remedy flowers hold certain very special healing properties too. By concentrating on emotions, not just the diseases, the body has the best chance to right itself. B
y the time he died Dr Bach had discovered the 38 remedies that were needed to treat every possible emotional state. No scientific explanation of how or why these remedies worked was offered by Dr Bach. In fact he was wary of the ‘trends’ that science is prone to and encouraged other to keep his remedies free from science, free from theories.
The remedies themselves are simple in their preparation. The materials required are pure water, sunlight, fresh blossoms and a clean glass bowl. The purpose of the Bach Flower Remedies is to support the persons fight against illness by addressing the depression/anxiety/trauma/ fear and other emotional factor that are thought to impede physical healing.
They can also be used preventively, at times of anxiety and stress, – as you probably know stress causes all sorts of problems from migraine, eczema through to heart attacks and are particularly helpful for many people who feel generally tired and unwell without a specific medical diagnosis. The remedies, although powerful are 100%natural, safe and very gentle in restoring emotional balance. Safe for use during pregnancy with babies, children, animals, plants.
They don’t have side effects and can be used safely with other medication. You can’t overdose or become addicted to them. As I said there are 38 Bach flower remedies and each one of them is aimed at a different state of mind or emotion and as I said by concentrating on emotions, not just the diseases, the body has the best chance to right itself. Dr Bach worked in the first three decades of our century.
Today there are things in our lives that he knew nothing about such as AIDS, RSI, but the emotions these things provoke are no different from the emotions provoked in Dr Bach’s day. We may be scared of Aids, full of righteous indignation at the harm done to our plant and worried about RSI.
Dr Bach’s system is completed because it treats emotions and not triggers that cause them. It is not just for today yesterday or tomorrow but for all time.
There are 38 Bach Remedies and also Bach Rescue Remedy,which is probably the best known.
Rescue Remedy is a mix of 5 of the Bach remedies made to deal with the immediate effects of sudden crisis or emergencies:
The 5 remedies used in Rescue Remedy are:
Star of Bethlehem for shock
Rock rose for terror and panic
Clematis for faintness Impatiens for undue agitation
Cherry plum for loss of self control and hysteria.
Star of Bethlehem for shock Rock rose for terror and panic
Cherry plum for loss of self control and hysteria.
The way to take it is: 4 drops in glass of water and sip at intervals, straight on to tongue from the bottle. (without touching the pipette) . You can buy little mixing bottles (available on ebay/amazon).
I have been buying the little spray bottles as demonstrated.
buy them from ebay called Perfume Aftershave Atomizer Atomiser Bottle 15ml Pump Travel Refillable Spray and they work really well and handy to keep in your bag or pocket.
Rescue Remedy is like a first aid kit, but it’s not a cure all. When someone needs emergency remedy on a long term basis for the purpose of making up a treatment bottle you use 4 drops of rescue.
It may be given if someone is unconscious and unable to swallow (a family member) . You can put it on the pulse points, or lips.
Completely safe be used for babies. 4 drops in the baby’s bottle – or the mum can take the 4 drops and the RR will come through on the second feed.
It a can also be dropped onto the babies soft spot on the head – 4 drops. Animals can benefit from Rescue Remedy – drop onto the paws of cats or dogs – or put into the food – they may not like it in their water.
A good standby for firework night. If someone is needing regular rescue remedy, I would suggest they need more than rescue remedy – worrying over a loved one for example needs an addition or Red Chestnut.
In another video I will show you how to make up your own prescription for over-worrying about a family member or friend, and other times when you might need more than Rescue Remedy, for example, loss of a loved one. I hope you learned something here and that it was useful for you.
