I bought myself some Rescue Remedy yesterday after hearing from some people that it's good for calming down in times of panic, and I don't like popping pills all the time just to feel normal, so I thought it would be good to carry in my handbag as I can just squirt it on my tongue when I feel stressed. I tried it out nearly right away as the city centre is horribly full with shoppers at the moment, but I wasn't too sure how much it helped really.. I was just curious to know if anyone else uses it and finds it any good, or if I just wasted £5 on something that tastes oddly like port... This is the website's spiel about it: "Rescue Remedy is used on stressful days where we suffer from impatience, tension and pressure. It has also been used successfully with children to stop a tantrum, before a speech or job interview. Rescue Remedy helps us relax, get focused and get the needed calmness. Rescue Remedy are handy kept in the purse, at the office, in the car or in the diaper bag. You never know when you need it. Pregnant women in labor have made the experience easier and less traumatic by taking Rescue Remedy. Star of Bethlehem: For trauma and shock. Clematis: For the tendency to "pass out", and unconsciousness, being ‘far away’ and not present mentally. Cherry Plum: Fear of mind giving way, verge of breakdown, anger. Impatiens: For irritability, tension and fidgety. Rock Rose: For frozen terror and panic."
