Bach To The Rescue on Fireworks Night
There’s something magical about fireworks. Whether you’re a child or still a child at heart, seeing rockets of light shooting high into the sky and then exploding into a myriad of different coloured sparks is enchanting, beautiful and exciting.
Unless that is, you don’t like fireworks and then fireworks night is a nightmare. So I thought I’d remind you to have your Rescue Remedy close to hand before the fireworks begin.
Bach Flowers Remedies are very practical as well as having deep, life changing effects and are an important part of your First Aid kit.
Bach Flower First Aid for Firework Night
For The Children
Young children, particularly the quiet and shy ones, are so frightened by the loud noises of fireworks, that they don’t see the beautiful display of colour lights.
So if this is your child’s first experience of fireworks, please tell them what’s going to happen and explain about the noise. Maybe break them in gently by burning a sparkler for them and then holding the sparkler with them.
Please have your bottle of Rescue Remedy with you, just in case things don’t go smoothly.
If your child is frightened by the fireworks, please don’t try to give them Rescue Remedy straight on their tongue. The remedies are preserved in brandy and the strong taste of brandy is a shock and tastes horrible for the child.
Instead, 6 drops into a 500ml bottle of water and give the child a drink. Even a small sip will calm your child.
Rescue Remedy in a spray would be ideal for burns too. If its not possible for the child to take Rescue Remedy then you can spray Rescue Remedy onto theit wrists. Yes, The Bach Remedies work just as well when you put it on the skin too.
Take care, but if someone unfortunately gets burnt – so long as the skin is not broken – put Rescue Remedy on the skin. (A Rescue spray would be handy to have in this situation).If the skin is broken and you put Rescue Remedy on it, it will sting and be even more painful than the burn.
Fireworks and Animals Don’t Mix
Firework night is a nightmare time for your animals. Please, please make sure they’re safe.
A long time ago, I had a softie Labrador who came from a Rescue Centre and had been very badly treated. She was absolutely terrified of fireworks and thunder. At firework time or in a thunder storm, she would hide behind the shower curtain, or hide her head behind the toilet.
How I wish I’d had Rescue Remedy then.
Put 2 drops of Rescue Remedy into your animals’ water. If they’re badly frightened and come to you for safety, put 2 drops into a saucer of water, dip your fingers in the water and wipe it on their nose (where their tongue can reach) and wipe their paws. They will lick it off and it will help them tremendously.
If Rescue Remedy doesn’t sooth your animals straight away, Aspen is the remedy that is for unknown fears. Put that in their water too. It works well with Rescue Remedy.
