I wish I could say that my state of mind and being was stable all the time but like most people they’re not. Being a woman, I can have emotional ups and downs especially when the hormones are at it again. As a business owner, I have all kinds of things to deal with. I need to be quick on my feet, be clear as to what I need to do, be self-motivated, confident, strong, balanced, energetic, well rested… I can easily stress myself out with my self-imposed deadlines, feel overwhelmed at the magnitude of things I want to accomplish, and have trouble shutting down that overactive mind of mine.
Ask my husband. I sure know how to kill the mood sometimes. I don’t complain about headaches or having to do the dishes (such a cliché) but I can be in bed at 11:30 pm and tell him about a new product I want to carry or share with him a marketing idea I just thought about. What can I say? I have XL Vita on my mind ALL the time!
The chatterbox aka the voices in your head can have their benefits but can also be quite detrimental. I have big goals for my business and life so I do what I can to stay strong, focused, balanced, and productive. How do I do this? Bach Flower Remedies, the best flower essences to help you along your journey and to treat you when you are off your game. I was introduced to them five years ago by a homeopath. I was amazed at how quickly they addressed whatever issue I was having at the time.
Safe for the entire family, Bach Flower Remedies are natural, non-toxic, and non-habit-forming. The remedies work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms. The flower remedies can help you change your negative emotions, traits, and attitudes, thus bringing balance to the body and mind. Flower essences can help with stress, anxiety, depression, anger, fear, guilt, worry, and many other unpleasant feelings.
I ended up getting all thirty-eight flower essences several years ago. If I feel burnt out and exhausted, I take a couple drops of Olive Flower Essence and I feel my mental and emotional balance start coming back.
Last year, my mother almost died. Anyone who knows me knows how dear to my heart my mother is. I was so shocked at the thought of losing her that I took my trusted Bach Flower Rescue Remedy. I used it for many days to help me deal with my fears and shock of seeing my mother in a coma – it really helped. That flower remedy should be in every household.
When I feel overwhelmed and wonder if I have what it takes to be a successful business woman, I grab Elm Flower Essence and regain my strength and belief in myself. I use White Chestnut Flower Essence to stop that chatterbox and the unwanted spiraling thoughts and enjoy mental calm and clarity.
I could go on and on about all the flower remedies I use but you get the idea. With life having a tendency to be on the hectic side, I need flower essences to bring me balance and peace of mind on a regular basis.
Another thing I really like with Bach Flower Remedies is that a little goes a long way. Since you typically only need two drops at a time, up to four times a day, each 20 ml bottle can last a really long time. I still have some of the same bottles I bought years ago.

Thank you Dr. Bach for your dedication to homeopathic remedies and for giving us the wonderful gift of flower essences.
