Most commonly known amongst the Bach Flower Remedies is Rescue Remedy: For anxiety, shock, trauma, extreme stress, or even unconsciousness, and to heal wounds. Use two (2) drops into mouth, or rubbed on gums, nose or pads of feet. Put two (2) drops into some distilled water and pour into wounds or cuts. Good for soaking pads if cut or hurt. Use several times a day. Carry Rescue Remedy with you at all times. Store in a cool, dark place.
