It is a well-known fact that when you say speed up, your kid will automatically slow down. When you have a million things on your plate – one of those deadlines will get moved up and put you in a tailspin. Just when you think you have the house cleaned, along comes your kid and all their friends. You finally clean the kitchen and your husband goes in and makes himself a snack. These are things that may not seem like much independently but through them all into the same week and you have yourself your basic meltdown.
You need Rescue! Bach’s Rescue Remedy spray is a portable and all natural spray that really does help to give you some calm and serenity in the face of chaos – with just a few squirts to the tongue.
Impatiens: to counter my impatience when my kid will NOT hurry along before first bell). It alleviates an impatient attitude, which helps lower stress.
Star of Bethlehem: For trauma and shock, whether experienced recently or in the past. Like that time I walked in and found my daughter and her bestie ripping through my make up bag and trashing about $150 worth of my cosmetics.
Cherry Plum: For those who fear losing control of their thoughts and actions and doing things they know are bad for them or which they consider wrong. I don’t think I need to even add my own example to this. Surely you can think of several examples of when you may have almost lost your shit.
