Mental Awareness Day with Bach Flower Remedies


Today is week is Mental Health Awareness day. There’s a lot in the media about Mental Health, but what is it?  As far as I’m concerned, poor mental health is living with intense negative emotions, so much so that these feelings control your life.

The first word that comes to mind in connection with Mental Health is Depression.  The way I see it is, that ‘depression’ is the result of some very deep feelings that have stayed with us longer than we realise. My understanding is that depression isn’t just one feeling, there are several different emotions mixed together and these can be different feelings for eveyone.  But as an example depression, anxiety and lack of confidence all walk together.   

I have been using Bach Flower Remedies for over 40 years for myself, my family and my clients.  Bach Flowers heal painful feelings and, as I’m sure you know, we’re all different and we react to experiences in different ways, so we often need different remedies.  So it might be that two people with seemingly similar ‘depressions’ might need different remedies to bring about a healing.  

So I’ve put together a few suggestions for Bach Flower Remedies that could perhaps help you out of the mist and on the road to recovery.

One of the best ways to help you choose remedies for yourself, is to use the Bach Flower Guides.  Just a little help, the difference between anxiety and fear is intensity of your feelings.

If you find it confusing to select the best remedy to help you,. these Bach Flower Guides below will help you.

Bach Flower Remedy Guides

Here are some remedies that can help you with Depression and Anxiety.
Rescue Remedy – its brilliant in emergency situations and for grief.  It ‘sticks you back together’ when you feel you’re ‘falling apart’.  So, this remedy can do a lot of good to everyone with Depression.  Rescue Remedy contains Rock Rose, the remedy foir intense anxiety.  
Mustard for a depression that comes on suddenly, out of the blue.  Its as if a dark cloud falls on you and you feel as if you’re living in fog.  Your mind isn’t working and you’ve no clarity of thought.
Larch is for the lack of self-confidence.  Few realise that lacking confidence can put you into an extremely deep state of despair.  You don’t try to do anything because you believe you can’t do – and everyone can do it better than you.  So you don’t try.
Pine is for self-reproach; its for when these type of thoughts run through your mind “I should have done better. I could have done more.  I wish I hadn’t said this or done that”.  You know what I mean.  We all need Pine at some time.  
Mimulus.  If you know what you’re afraid of Mimulus is for you.   Mimulus is afraid of ‘life’  They don’t talk about their anxieties and push them down into their stomach.  Mimulus children often get stomach ache when they’re anxious. 
Sweet Chestnut is for anguish.  Despair.  The dark night of the soul.  Unendurable desolation and desperation.

These remedies will help you through the dark days of mental and emotional confusion.

I’ve written a blog on the most effective way to take the remedies, so perhaps you might like to have a look at that?

Mental health has been brought very much to the fore since Princes William and Harry admitted having difficulty dealing with their mother’s death.  And now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are championing the importance of Mental Health for happy and productive lives.

I believe that feeling good is the most important thing in our lives and if you don’t feel good, then there is a really simple way of healing your feelings with Bach Flower Remedies.  Click here to find out how you can study the Bach Flower Remedies so you can manage your own and your family’s emotions.

Over to you.  This is a long blog today because its such an important subject, so please leave your thoughts and comments in the Comment Box below.  As always, I love to hear from you.  Take care.  Rose.

  • Sylvia Harroch says:

    Thank you for all this info, its very much appreciated . I use these flowers and they have saved me many times from horrible situations of deep anxiety turning into vertigo. Problem is when it happens in the middle of the night, it is so insidious. You have a very good way of explaining these remedies.

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Sylvia. Thank you for writing and for your kind words. I understand completely about the Bach Flowers ‘saving’ you. The remedies have been my constant companions for over 35 years. And I can honestly say, that without them, I would be a very different person without them.
      Some symptoms are tricky and insidious. So it seems that whatever is ‘triggering’ your vertigo is still ‘alive and well’! Can I suggest you go back to the time when this problem started, and take the remedies you would have needed then.? Heal the cause – no matter when – and that will cure the feelings. I hope you feel better soon. Rose.

  • Matilde Machiavello says:

    Awesome!!! Thanks a million for sharing your expertise. 🙂

    • Rose Todd says:

      Thank you Matilde. It’s a pleasure. I hope you found something useful to help you through these troubled times. Love Rose

  • Pauleen Rachelle says:

    Dear Rose. Thankyou for sharing your knowledge. I am a medium and healer and you can imagine the nightmare of dealing with all the fear flying about. The constant chatter of others psychic debris and thoughts is very distressing. Especially at night. I long to be not affected by it and have my mind to myself. Life has been very painful because of personal emotional issues so having to deal with this on two fronts. I thought of aspen but also white chestnut and perhaps rock Rose. I would be very grateful for your advice. Love and blessings 🙏 pauleen

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Pauleen. Thank you for your message. I can only imagine the ‘debris’ that is flying about in our energies at this time! The Bach Flowers can certainly help you.
      Apsen is for ‘unknown’ fears’. You know what is happening, and I don’t think that is Aspen will help you. But you can try if you like.
      Rock Rose is for feelings of panic – you could need that.
      But what I think you do need is Cherry Plum. Cherry Plum is for when we feel as if we;ve ‘lost control’ of our minds. To put it another way, it is as if the filters between the conscious and unconscious mind are no longer working properly. I suggest you take Cherry Plum and get the filters working again. (Cherry Plum is in Rescue Remedy). And you can take White Chestnut too. That’ll help you sleep,
      I’m sure the remedies will help you. Take care. Rose.

      • Pauleen Rachelle says:

        Dear Rose thankyou very much for taking the time to help . I never considered the cherry plum but I can see what you mean. So easy to help others not so easy to help ourselves. Bless you love and blessings 🙏 ❤ Pauleen x

        • Rose Todd says:

          Hello Pauleen. I’m sure Cherry Plum will do good work.
          The channelled spiritual teaching I follow say “a fish doesn’t know it lives it water”.
          We just accept things around us as they are without questioning them. It is very difficult to identify how we feel, and see which remedies we need.
          The Elm state always creeps up on me. Sometimes I’m in the Elm state for weeks before I realise it! 🙂
          I’m sure the remedies will do good work.
          Keep up yoru good work; Rose

          • Pauleen Rachelle says:

            Hi Rose thankyou.i too need elm frequently as the desire to give and give is my desire to do as much good as I can before its time to go home to spirit. I realise I am no good to anyone if I am exhausted myself and personally life for us personally isn’t always easy. Your doing such a good job and total respect. and blessings 🙏 pauleenxx

          • Rose Todd says:

            Dear Pauleen. Thank you for your very kind words. I appreciate them.
            Helping to contribute to ‘the new world’ isn’t easy. And we knew it would be a rocky road before we voluteered. So long as we can say ‘I did my best”, then I think we’ve done a good job.
            Hang in there. The remedies work wonders. love Rose
