I of­ten talk about flower reme­dies, in par­tic­u­lar Res­cue Rem­edy, a rem­edy to deal with stress­ful sit­u­a­tions. My mother be­lieves in Res­cue Rem­edy Night, this is a vari­a­tion of Res­cue that helps switch off un­wanted thoughts. Mam reg­u­larly uses it to help re­lax when she can’t sleep, or when she is anx­ious, ag­i­tated, or wor­ried about any­thing. She wouldn’t be with­out it.

Re­cently mam ended up in hos­pi­tal, quite un­ex­pect­edly; she gave us all a fright. Thank­fully she is ok now, it will take a while for her to re­cover fully and get back to her nor­mal self. But, what I want to tell you is how much com­fort she got from her lit­tle yel­low bot­tle of Bach Res­cue Rem­edy Night.

Mam has never taken a sleep­ing tablet but in hos­pi­tal she de­cided to since she wasn’t sleep­ing, and was feel­ing anx­ious. It turned out to be a very bad idea, she didn’t have a pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence nor did she have a good night sleep.

She was hal­lu­ci­nat­ing a lit­tle and didn’t like that feel­ing at all. So she said that she would stick with her Res­cue and asked us to bring it in for her.

One night she was awak­ened un­ex­pect­edly so that the doc­tors could do a test. They fright­ened the heart out of her; she said that she shook like a leaf from the shock of be­ing wo­ken so sud­denly. She didn’t know what was hap­pen­ing, she felt shaky and asked for her Res­cue to calm her down. She said she could feel her­self re­lax­ing as soon as she took it.

You see the thing is, my mam doesn’t like hos­pi­tals, in fact she fears them. She al­ways says that if you go in you never come out. So it was lovely that she had some small piece of com­fort in a stress­ful, fear­ful and anx­ious sit­u­a­tion.

Mam was on lots of med­i­ca­tions try­ing to nor­malise her sit­u­a­tion. She needed to be in hos­pi­tal - there was no nat­u­ral rem­edy that could deal with the is­sues that she was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. It can be a small thing that gives us com­fort and I for one am glad that mam got a bit of com­fort from her lit­tle yel­low bot­tle of Res­cue Rem­edy Night.
