Bach remedies

I cannot praise these enough!

Last month I purchased my own personalized blend of the following remedies from the local herb shop for $10. It was the greatest investment.

Here is what I chose-

1. Scleranthus-

Taking the remedy helps us know what we want. We reconnect with our intuition and are able to choose simply and decisively.

2. Larch-

The remedy helps us to move ahead regardless of thoughts of success and failure. More prepared to take risks and get involved, we get more out of living.

3. Rock Rose

The remedy provides calm and courage. We are able to forget fear as our courage is renewed.

4. Hornbeam

This remedy is used against feelings of exhaustion and tiredness that come before an effort has been made.

5. Walnut

This is the remedy to help protect us against outside influences in general, and against the effects of change in particular.

As a remedy against the effects of change, Walnut is useful at all the transition points in life, from birth to teething to going to school to puberty to marriage to childbearing to retirement and beyond. It helps break links with the past so that we can move forward more easily.

6. Pine

This remedy helps when we blame ourselves for things done or undone.

In a Pine state we may feel guilty even when events outside our control have caused a problem, or we may assume responsibility for mistakes made by others. We suffer needlessly.

We sometimes feel so guilty in a Pine state that we end up saying 'sorry' all the time.

7. Crab Apple

This known as the cleansing remedy. Its main use is to help people who dislike some aspect of their appearance or personality, or feel that they have something unclean or poisonous about them.

Sometimes in a Crab Apple state we disregard genuine problems and concentrate obsessively on one thing that we have fixed on - sometimes a quite minor aspect of the whole. We might take Crab Apple to cleanse obsessive, repetitive behaviour such as hand-washing, re-checking that appliances are unplugged, and so on.

Looking back since I chose these, I can already see and feel a difference in my life.
