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 love the summer sun, but there are just as many of us who can’t cope with 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.
*Absolutly absolutely exhausted – I must lie down!
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.
Walnut is known as the ‘link breaker’ – so it;s good for when we move from one situation to another.
But, Bach put Walnut into the Group of Remedies who are ‘extremely acceptible to outside influences’…
So, right now, I’m extremely susceptible to the ‘outside influence’ of the heat – so I add it to my ‘Heat Mix’.
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 Walnut, 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.
