Bach Blog. Too Hot To Handle

Here in the UK, the heat is now too hot to handle.  I don’t know about you, but it certainly is for me .  I can’t cope with intense heat.  I know loads of you are loving the summer sun, but there are just as many of us who aren’t made to take this intense heat.

Bach Flower Remedies help me deal with the intense heat!

There are 38 remedies and its difficult to know which remedies will help you.  Here are 2 Bach Flower Guides that’ll help you decided which remedies suit you.

Too hot to handle

So, how are you managing with the heat?
To find the right remedies to help you, first, you have to identify how the heat makes you feel.

This is how I feel when the heat is too hot for me to handle.  Perhaps you feel like this too?

*Feel ‘spaced out’ and can’t concentrate.
*Grumpy and irritable – my nerves seem frayed at the edges.
*I feel weak, and I absolutely must lie down!  There’s no substance in me to sit up or do anything. 

Rescue Remedy

This amazing remedy is a combination of 5 remedies,
2 of them will help you cope with the heat.

Clematis.  The beautiful white flowers of Clematis helps with the ‘spaced out’ feeling that comes when we’re overheated and feeling faint. You know that floppy feeling when you can’t get your mind to focus.  It’s not that you’re lying on the sofa, ideally day dreaming.  No.  Your mind won’t work.  Clematis will help to ground you.

Impatiens  The heat seems to make us snappy and  irritable. We get and impatient with everyone about everything.



The tall and majestic Beech is brilliant. It’s for when the heat is intolerable and you to become intolerant and critical of others.  (I know this is unusual for you, but the heat certainly does seems to affect our tolerance levels).


The gnarled and tired Olive tree gives us the remedy for physical fatigue.   Take it when you’re feeling drained and exhausted  Olive will restore some of your energy.


The delicate pink flower of Centaury will help when you feel too ‘weak’ to get through the day.  My legs seem to go like jelly, without any strength, and Centaury does make a difference.

Please remember …

When you take the appropriate remedy for your feelings, the Bach Flower Remedies do work.  But remember they work subtly and gently, and you might not realise you’re feeling better, until you notice that you’re doing more, or not needing to lie down for so long.


(The Bach Flower Remedies brand of my choice is Healing Herbs and their ‘Rescue Remedy’ is called 5 Flower  – it’s made of a combination of 5 flowers).

Into a glass of water, put 2 drops of  each of the remedies: Rescue/5 Flower, Beech, Olive and Centaury, and sip through out the day.  If you’re travelling, put your chosen remedies into a 500ml bottle of mineral water, but because there is more water in the bottle than a glass, this time put 3-4 drops of each of the remedies into the bottle and sip frequently.

This is your remedy-water, not your thirst water.  Remember to drink more water in this hot weather, that you would do usual

This mix helps me get through the heat of the day, so I hope it’ll help you too.  Click here if you’d like to know more about the Bach Flower Remedies.

    Interesting post, Rose. I have never thought of using Bach Flower Remedies for managing the intense heat of summer. Thanks for sharing this & opening my mind to the possibilities of these wonderful remedies.

      Hello Vimala. Thank you for your comment. It does seem strange to take the Bach remedies just because the weather’s hot. But they heal and soothe emotions, and so I identified how the heat made me feel, and took the remedies. It’s amazing – but it works and will help you deal with the heat better.
      Keep well. Rose.
