Keep cool under pressure with Rescue Remedy

Ever felt that the demands of your day are sometimes a bit much? True, the more you juggle, the better you can get at it, but for all our modern lifestyles and labour-saving devices, sometimes it can feel as if all we have won is the right to a pressure-cooker life. Where online supermarket shopping at midnight, 6 am alarm calls, or speed yoga classes in your lunch hour are increasingly becoming the norm. What can you do?

Back in 1976, Superwoman author Shirley Conran famously said, “Life’s too short to stuff a mushroom”. And while she was right, sometimes it’s all too easy to get caught up in a 21st century fast lane, juggling and multi-tasking in a way that would make our grandmothers reach for the smelling salts.

Fortunately Dr Edward Bach developed a system of 38 original flower remedies, created to help deal with the sort of emotional demands we all face from time to time. From these he devised his most popular remedy with its unique combination of Cherry Plum, Clematis, Impatiens, Star of Bethlehem and Rock Rose, which he called Rescue Remedy, and it soon became known for providing comfort and reassurance in difficult and demanding situations.

Rescue Remedy can be used for those stressful times when we all need a little extra help. Times when you’re just starting a new job, for example, or organising a child’s birthday party, or giving a presentation. Times when you have to be on top of your game and need to stay cool under pressure: that’s when Rescue Remedy can help you cope and face those moments calmly.

Thanks to Dr Bach, Rescue Remedy remains trusted by millions worldwide to help manage and balance life’s ups and downs. Available either as a dropper or spray, and small enough to fit in a handbag or desk drawer, Rescue Remedy is convenient, portable and available when you need it.

Look for RESCUE® Remedy at leading pharmacies, health food and grocery stores.

Always read the label.
