6. Rescue Remedy
Originally developed in the 1930s by English physician Edward Bach, Rescue Remedy contains the same five Bach™ Original Flower Essences to this day, and is used to help “provide support in times of emotional demand”.
Until recently, no reliable scientific studies had been performed to rigorously assess whether or not Rescue Remedy could help alleviate stress and anxiety. However, it has now been reported in Medical News Today, that in a controlled, double-blind clinical trial involving 111 individuals aged 18 to 49 and comparing Rescue Remedy to a placebo (that looked identical), “Rescue Remedy may be effective in reducing high levels of [acute] situational anxiety”.
Acute situational anxiety is the feeling of moderate or severe anxiety leading up to a particular event or circumstance. Therefore, using Rescue Remedy in such situations could help to restore calm and balance in your mind. It’s also recommended as a daily therapy to help “keep on top of your day”.
Rescue Remedy is available in the original dropper bottle, as well as pastilles, an oral spray and gummies. All are convenient to carry with you daily and easy to use. They could help you manage your day to day anxiety and provide extra support when you’re having a particularly anxious time.
