Rescue Remedy (combination remedy)

While each flower essence product is traditionally made with a single type of flower, Rescue Remedy is a special blend of five different wildflowers:

1. Cherry plum: fear of mental breakdown. Sufferers can shock themselves with their own thoughts and may believe they are not in reality.

2. Clematis: preoccupied and dreamy. For those who can't concentrate and maintain focus on reality. May retreat into daydreams, appearing disoriented and withdrawn.

3. Impatiens: impatient and tense. Brings patients to those who are frustrated by the slowness of life around them.

4. Rock rose: martyrs and self denial. Helps those who hold high standards for themselves and others. Often inflexible and impractical.

5. Star-of-Bethlehem: shock either physical or mental. Helps to ease the pain of mental, physical or emotional trauma. Eases symptoms brought on by an inability to cope.
