BACH FLOWER REMEDIES.
You can purchase these wonderful natural remedies in many health food shops or see the list of suppliers. This is one of my lists of 'Jude's reliables', used by many clients to great effect and benefit. Don't be afraid to use them.. you need to have a few drops under the tongue several times a day, for a couple of days. My Monday morning dose of Hornbeam was essential.. and Olive helped me cope with the stresses and strains of a very busy responsible job.
Try out this little kit to start with.
RESCUE REMEDY.. how do we manage without it! For those stressful events in life
HORNBEAM - that Monday morning feeling. Motivate yourself and stay on focus
OLIVE - Just feel emotionally tired from too much stress and contact with others
WHITE CHESTNUT - helps to calm that those inner mental conversations
HOLLY - for when you feel prickly and critical
ELM - feel like everything is all too too much and nothing's going right
For suppliers - google 'bach flower remedy suppliers' to find your nearest.
BLACKBERRY is a great 'actualizer'.. helps to overcome inertia and move forward with putting ideas into action.. Or just get on with those irritating jobs like paying the bills!
MADIA also helps a lot with mental focus, concentration and attention to detail; the ability to follow through with a project, for studying.
TISSUE SALTS (Schuessler) These are all in 6x or d.
That's enough for your natural remedies kit to get you started. If you are an 'old hand', very likely you have most of these remedies.
