Favorite Things: Rescue Remedy

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

Oprah isn’t the only one who has favorite things. It may not involve giving away thousands of dollars worth of merchandise to our customers, but I thought our readers might be interested to know about some things that we especially love at Village Green Apothecary. For me, this was tough because there are so many things that I use on a daily basis, or when I am under the weather, or when I need a boost, that it was hard to narrow it down to one. I may have to do a weekly blog about some of my other absolute faves. Lately, my "go to" product, has been Bach Rescue Remedy, available in spray or drops. This little vial contains a combination of flower essences that eases my tension and soothes my worries. Just the thought of it calms me down. The great thing about Rescue Remedy is that it is so safe! It is taken when you are feeling anxious or tense. 4 drops on the tongue or in a little water can help ease your apprehension about public speaking, or flying on a plane. Now, if you have severe stage fright or you have to be dragged on to a plane, this is probably not for you. I like to think that it helps take the edge off...like what a drink may do for some. I recommend this to people who have a hard time sleeping before any other supplement, because it is gentle and safe. If it works, then you have a non-habit forming remedy that can be used anytime. If it doesn’t work, we try something else. That’s really the only side effect! If you would like to try it call us or stop by!
