THANK GOD FOR THESE
I’ve never really written about Bach Flowers though I use them pretty regularly. Rescue Remedy is a staple in my home for trauma and anxiety. It certainly came in handy when my youngest fell off a tree. He was clearly saved by his angels, but we were all pretty shaken, so both of us were on it!
When the children are ill, I add them to our basket of medicines. It helps temper the anxiety and worry. I don’t always remember just how useful this little remedy is when the children are sick, but when I do I am so grateful. It helps me take a breath and not be so wound up, especially when I am up all night caring for them. It helps them through the difficult patches of their illness as well.
Recently, my little one had a fever; he told me he was getting “sick dreams”. I knew exactly what he was talking about as I used to have them when I was little. These “dreams” happen even when one is awake–regular objects take on a different shape, sounds change. It can be very frightening and isolating. I remembered Rock Rose, the flower essence that addresses fear and nightmares and quickly put two drops in a small glass of water. He was so grateful. They worked like a charm.
It’s good to have flower essences on hand to help us through life’s twists and turns.
