Bach Blog Anxiety Levels Skyrocketed Lately?

If you ‘live-in-the-world’ by now, there’s every probability that your anxieties have sky-rocketed into panic!  And just with one word!  CoronaVirus.

We are amazing creatures and in my neck of the woods, for some, the panic is so intense that there’s been panic buying of toilet rolls!

We speak of anxieties,  but often our anxieties mount to panic without us recognising it.  Many come to me with anxieties, but when we talk about it, it turns out that they’re living in a state of continual panic.  (No wonder some have adrenaline fatigue!)

If  you’d like a natural and simple way to soothe your feeling of panic, anxiety and worries, you’re in the right place.  The Bach Flower Remedies, or Essences, can heal and soothe your fears and worries so you can get on with life.

I know you have many worries,  money  work  and the family.  But there is a remedy that can help with each of these feelings.  If you’re also worried about which Bach Flower Remedies will help you best, these Guides will help.
Bach Flower Remedy Guides

There’s three Bach Flower Remedies I’d like to tell you about today: one to help with your feelings of panic, one to help with your worries about life and one to help you with your anxieties about your family.

Being charged by an elephant?


Do you feel as if you’re being charged by an elephant? Feeling as if you’ve got to rush around, but don’t really know what to do?  You’re probably in panic but don’t recognise it and even if you did, you don’t know what to do about it?

If your a Bach Flower fan, you’ll recognise these feelings, and you reach for Rescue Remedy.

  Rock Rose

This lovely yellow flower is no bigger that your little finger nail and yet is has so much power.  It can take you out of panic in seconds. Literary, you’ll begin to feel better immediately.  How long the effects last will depend on the intensity of your feelings of fear.
Rock Rose is the “being charged by an elephant” fear and panic that can come on so fast. For example if you have too much to do in too short a time, or you’re rushing to catch the train for an extremely important meeting.  This is the remedy you actually need when you reach for Rescue Remedy.

High anxiety levels

Do you sometimes feel that you can’t cope? You just don’t know how to start dealing with your worries?

If you know what you’re anxious about – not everyone does – and you keep your worries to yourself, -not everyone does – then you need the Bach Flower Remedy called Mimuulus. 

Those who need Mimulus and quite and shy people and are anxious about most things in life.  It might be that you’re not really happy about dogs, you’re afraid of spiders, or the dark or thunder storms. You’re afraid of being ill, perhaps of getting cancer or some other fatal disease.  All these anxieties are helped by Mimulus.

Worrying about loved ones

With the CoronaVirus spreading like wild-fire and it seems to be affecting the elderly and those with underlying health complaints, naturally you worry about your parents or elderly loved ones.

You look at the photo on your sideboard of Mum and Dad on their last holiday.  They had such a wonderful time, but now, they seem to be more susceptible to colds and ‘flu.  And you worry about how long they’re going to be able to look after themselves properly.  Every time you think of them, your anxiety mounts.

Red Chestnut

Red Chestnut is the remedy for worrying and being anxious about our loved ones and stops all those unwanted thoughts from pushing their way into your mind most of the day.

How to take the remedy or essences

Put 2 drops of  Rock Rose (or Rescue) Mimulus and  Red Chestnut into a glass of water and sip it throughout the day. This will begin to soothe your anxiety immediately.  One glass can see you through the day, so make a new glass each day.

Over the next few days you’ll begin to feel better.  And over the next week or so, one day you’ll suddenly notice your anxiety is much less. If your mind has been filled with anxieties about your health, work or money, you’ll notice that you’re not so worried any more.  You feel that Mum and Dad are getting on well.

PS. Mimulus goes well with Larch. Larch is the self-confidence remedy. Here’s the link to the Larch blog if you’d like to read that too.  You could add that to your water mix too.

    Hi Rose, it all boils down to worry! What a destructive pastime that is. I just clicked through and read the larch blog again too. It really strikes a chord with me. But as you say in that blog the essences’ effect is so subtle it’s hard to notice… unlike a meditation or something that can be more instant as a mood-changer. Is there a method like making a diary note in the evening that could help me to take stock of the essences’ effect or maybe look back over a period of taking them? Thanks, Debz x

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Debz. Thank you for your comment and your very good question. Firstly, you comment on Fear and worry.
      Yes, worry is a highly destructive pastime! If you consider Fear and Love at each end of a continuum, the the more you worry, the further away you are from Love. So, the object of all healing is to close the gap and move closer to Love.
      And that’s what the remedies do.
      Thank you for going back to the Larch blog. There is a lot there that’ll resonate with all of us I think.
      The remedies/essences are so subtle as the adjust your vibration a little at a time. This way, you’re stabilising the vibrations slowly and they become steadier, so you don’t loose the new feelings as soon as something untoward happens.
      As you begin to feel better, you just get on with life; do what you’re doing with focus – instead of worrying about ‘I can’t do this’.
      If you wanted to evaluate how you’ve changed over the day, write it in your diary, but don’t focus on it too much – write something as simple as “I was much more confident today” – Or “confidence slipped a little today when I had to do that new job, must go back to take the remedies more frequently”.
      Hope this is helpful.
      Thank you for writing. I do love receiving your comments.

    Thank you Rose, just what I need before going away with the family – flights there and back, sunamis, leaving the dog behind, terrorists, my son in law’s recent diagnosis, pretty well the lot !

      Have a good holiday. I’m sure all will be well while you’re in distant lands.
      Travel safe and have fun. Rose.

      • Jane frances says:

        Just read your blog on Mimulus and red chestnut just at the time when I was feeling exactly like that anxious out of nowhere . Thank you

        • Rose Todd says:

          Hello Jane. Thank you for leaving a comment. Glad it arrived in time for you to help your sudden anxiety. It’s strange how anxieties come, sometimes out of the blue. Hope you have both remedies handy so you can start taking them at once.
          Hope you feel better soon.
          Warm wishes. Rose

  • Mary says:

    What a great explanation here, Rose. You have a gift of that…..thank you!

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Mary. Thank you for your kind words. I think being able to bring the remedies to life come living these situations! 🙂
      I hope you enjoy using the remedies. They are incredible powerful healers.
      Warm wishes. Rose

  • Polly says:

    Hi Rose. Thankyou for your help. I have had so much grief and distress for some time. My daughter has breast brother died before Christmas and my partner diagnosed with a brain tumour in nov. All in all over load. I had pneumonia after christmas. I have been taking cherry plum and recently sweet chestnut as I feel all resources for coping are diminished. Perhaps you can suggest something I ha dnt considered. Thankyou. Keep well. Pauleen

    • Rose Todd says:

      Dear Pauleen. Thank you for leaving a comment. Goodness me, you are dealing with a lot, aren’t you. No wonder you feel depleted.
      Keep taking Sweet Chestnut. I would suggest you change Cherry Plum for Rescue Remedy. It seems to me as you if could do with some ‘rescuing’. Cherry Plum is in Rescue, as is Star of Bethlehem. Star of Bethlehem is for shock, trauma and sorrow. It also “sticks us back together again”. So i think Rescue would do you good now. You say your reserves are diminished. I’m not sure if you need Gorse (because you’ve lost hope) or Gentian because you’ve suffered a ‘set back’. You’ll have to decide on that one. Read about both remedies to see which one suits you better.
      I suggest you take Olive, to help with your energy. And Red Chestnut for anxiety for loved ones. I’m sure these additional remedies will help restore you. Take care. Rose

      • PAULEEN RACHELLE says:

        Dear Rose. Thanks for your response. And advice . I am a healer and this makes life difficult when absorbing others thoughts and feeling and distress. So it is a double load.I think olive would help and the rescue remedy. I use the bach remedies regularly but at the moment it is difficult to gain focus and clarify. Bless you Pauleen

        • Rose Todd says:

          Hello Pauleen. I understand about working to heal the stress of others. Do you take Walnut?
          Walnut is the ‘link-breaker’. We need Walnut when we’re being ‘influenced’ by another or a situation. A lot of healers take Walnut after each session, to help them break that energy, so they don’t absorb it.
          If you’re not already doing this, perhaps you might like to give it a try? Take care. Rose

          • PAULEEN RACHELLE says:

            Thankyou Rose. I shall do that. I feel a little better as I made up a combination from remedies suggested. I shall add the walnut as suggested bless you Pauleen

          • Rose Todd says:

            Hello, Pauleen. It’s a pleasure. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I love the power of these simple Remedies. I don’t know why more don’t use them. Take care. Rose

          • PAULEEN RACHELLE says:

            Hi Rose .Thankyou for your help much appreciated. The divine spirit has provided us with so much. I had an acupuncture treatment yesterday and the wonderful people at the world healing in Blackpool always help with their prayers. You can ask for prayers On line.onward. Blessing Pauleen. Keep well.

          • Rose Todd says:

            Hello Pauleen. Thank you for the comment. I’m glad you’re feeling better and that you’re receiving healing. It’s good to know. Keep well. Rose

          • Rose Todd says:

            Hello Anil. Thank you for your Comment. When can you see changes in another? It’s difficult to tell. If the emotions are intense (panic) and you give Rock Rose, then the effect would be seen in about 10 seconds, and calm in about 30 seconds.
            If however, the emotional states have come on over time, then its going to take time for them to do their work.
            My best guide will be from my experience. When I take Hornbeam and Wild Rose together, because these states came on over years, I didn’t particularly feel any changes, but I just noticed I was ‘doing more’! Then I noticed I was feeling happier. As this states come over time, I needed them for a ‘prolonged time. I once needed Hornbeam for 8 months.
            The Elm state always “creeps up on me”, so I’m ‘deep in it before i recognise it. And then within 15 minutes of taking it, again, I notice that I’m feeling ‘lighter and brighter’.
            Chicory, Vine, Willow, Rock Water are all states that could be part of childhood upbringing, so you need to take the remedies for some considerable time. But I would think you;d notice, even small differences, in about a week.I hope this is helpful. And I hope you feel better soon. Rose

  • Fil Campbell says:

    Dear Rose,
    Thank you so much for this kind blog – we were driving home after leaving my 92 year old mother yesterday who lives 100 miles away from me and I was waiting to find a signal to look up which remedies to take as I was getting so stressed and as soon as I hit an area with a signal your email came in and answered all my questions.
    I have a been a slightly more than casual user of Bach Remedies for many years but always seem to forget to use them until I”m way into a crisis. I did your excellent course last summer which I thoroughly enjoyed and plan to revisit to better learn the information.

    Thank you again for your generosity with this information.
    Would you mind if I share you blog with my contacts?

    Best Regards

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Fil. Thank you for leaving a Comment. I hope your Mum is well and that you had a happy time together. Good to know that you’re “more-than-a casual Bach-Flower-er”. The remedies are brilliant and Bach (and me too) would like them to be part of every family’s life-style. (I’ll get off my soap box now!)
      I believe that everything happens at the ‘right’ time, as you experienced with the arrival of my email and blog. I’m glad that remedies seemed to fit and I hope they’re beginning to work their magic for you.
      Yes please, forward my email and/or blog link to everyone who you think might be interested.
      Once again, thank you for writing and I hope you’re feeling better now. Love Rose.
      PS – thank you too for your kind words about the Foundation Course. 🙂
