Emergency Essence to the Rescue
In a state of shock?
Had an accident?
Frightened of the dentist?
Nervous or anxious?
As we enter the 21st century, we are beginning to understand the role of emotions in the development of disease, and the need to treat the whole person. Emergency Essence is a blend of ten flowers, which ensure it can be used for any extreme circumstances that might arise.
Cherry Plum for losing control and panic.
Clematis to prevent unconsciousness, fainting.
Rock Rose to calm extreme terror and paralysing anxieties.
Star of Bethlehem for emergencies and the after effects.
Impatiens to ease irritability, tension or pain.
Yarrow to protect from stressful circumstances in the environment and from other sources.
Red Clover particularly for those working in stressful conditions such as hospitals.
Orange Hawkweed to re-energise those areas of the system affected by trauma.
Sweet Chestnut for extreme anguish or bereavement.
Bluebell for overwhelming situations that may prove frightening and traumatic.
How to use this blend
Put 7 drops in a glass of water and sip calmly, seated if possible. The effect is cumulative so you can continue to take the remedy until all symptoms have subsided.
For an acute bereavement take as a long term course. For an on-coming stressful event, such as a public performance, do not expect the blend to take away ALL anxiety: a little is known to enhance a performance.
Other uses: Add 12 drops to your bath if feeling traumatised or stressed. Also add to oil or cream, and rub in frequently as the effect is cumulative.
Put 12 drops to 50ml of still spring water in spray, add 7 drops of essential oil, and mist around the room.
This essence greatly reduced the emotional trauma I was suffering. It calmed me and allowed me to find a quietness and inner peace, yet really allowing me to cry or talk when I needed to. I have greatly relied on Emergency Essence during this difficult time, it felt like my survival pack.
