Bach Remedies for Fear and Anxiety

Ping. Another email dropped into my Inbox asking which Bach remedy should they take for anxiety.  So as this seems to trouble a lot of people, I thought I’d write to you,  just in case you suffer from fears and anxieties too.

Before you start looking for the remedy that will help you, I think its good to understand a little about this wonderful healing system.  I’ll keep it short because I know you want to move on quickly to the remedies.  However, knowing this will make choosing the right remedy for you, much easier.

I have two Free Bach Flower Guides that will also make choosing the best remedy for you, or your family, much easier.   Click the image to find out more.

It’s important to know that there isn’t just one remedy for each emotion.  Each remedy has a ‘personality’ that contains many feelings and emotions.  And each of the remedy states is triggered by something particular.  Each remedy state as a ’cause’.

So there isn’t one remedy for anger, for anxiety or for fear. There isn’t one remedy for indecision or lack of confidence.  To find the remedy that is going to help you, you have to know why you’re feeling anxious, and what you’re fearful about.

Once you’re aware of that, now when you read through the seven anxiety remedies below, you’ll have a better idea of which suits you.

Bach Flower Remedies for Fear and Anxiety

(They’re in alphabetical order for ease)


This is one of the remedies that’s rarely used – and is much needed by many.  Those in need of Agrimony are described as ‘wearing a mask’. They suffer from great anxiety which they don’t know how to express, so they push their anxiety down and hide it behind a happy face.  Agrimony people are restless and have to keep busy because if they’re not busy, their anxieties rise – and they can’t cope.  A very good remedy for sleeplessness.


Aspen is the remedy for ‘unknown fears’. This does not mean that you’re afraid of the future.  It means that you have vague. inexplicable fears and apprehension.  It’s as if the veil between the  subconscious and the conscious minds is too thin and vague and weird things are seeping from the subconscious mind. The fears are of doom and gloom: “something is going to happen” and it gives you goose-bumps.
When in an Aspen state, you wont talk about your fears.  How can you – you can’t identify them.

Cherry Plum

The Cherry Plum is the first tree to flower in the ‘Bach Calendar’ and it brings light to the dark days of February.   In the Cherry Plum state we’re afraid of loosing control of our mind.  It is also for  obsessive thoughts, like OCD. And is excellent for nightmares when it seems that the subconscious mind is seeping through to the conscious.


Heather is another remedy that is not considered when we talk of ‘anxiety remedies’. And this is because those in a Heather state are ‘self-centred’ – and no one wants to consider themselves self-centred. Heather is entirely absorbed and obsessed by their own troubles and they always need someone to talk to .  They talk incessantly about their troubles.  They’re afraid of being alone.


This remedy is one of the most popular remedies.  It is for anxiety of known things.  If you know what you’re anxious about, then Mimulus is for you.  Those in need of Mimulus are reluctant to join in and have fun with life.  There is a Mimulus blog, if you’d like to read more about it.

 Rock Rose

A tiny flower that looks like a buttercup, is no bigger than your little finger nail.  This remedy is taken daily by millions in Rescue Remedy.  It’s the remedy for ‘urgent fear’ – panic!  The fear felt when you in a Rock Rose state churns underneath everything you do in life – it never goes away and you feel as if you’re always in a state of ‘flight’.  (You’r3 too afraid to stay and fight!

Red Chestnut

Whether we’re living through troubled times or are under lot of stress, there will come a time when we’re extremely worried about our loved ones.   This is the time when we need Red Chestnut.  For example, you’ll need Red Chestnut when you child goes away to University.  How will he/she cope? Your mind will run through a thousand things a second. If someone is ill, again, you’ll have a thousand questions and different thoughts and be excessively worried.  This is the Red Chestnut state.
