I'm curious to hear anyone's expereince with these. I've tried Rescue Remedy at my dentist's office and it was great! I would like to try some different ones such as Buttercup, Scleranthus, and Mimulus. I know they are pricey so I'm hesitant to invest without knowing feedback.

Anyone?

Yes I think they work. I just have to remember to use them. Rescue Remedy is my most used one. I forget what all the others are used for and have to look them up, so if I am in a situation I do not know the immediate treatment....

However, I love Bach remedies. I use them on my pets, children and on myself.

I have a suggestion to help the memory though (I am going to do this when I get home).

Show a list of symtoms on a billboard and the Bach Flower remedy for it. Bach Flowers really are for emotional issues which lead into physical issues as well. I.e. if you are in a car accident or stressed out...squirt the rescue remedy on. I think Olive is for depression or something...but just list basic incidentals that may occur on a regular basis for yourself, and look for the treatment on your billboard and then it will be like taking any medicine for an ailment. I.e. you know aspirin is for pain, alka selzter for stomach gas, etc.,etc.

Yes, they work! I have almost a complete collection of them (I bought them as needed) except that I keep forgetting to replace my Rescue Remedy that got used up!

Yes, I use them. I believe they work. I've had the exerience of being completely distraught, took the Rescue Remedy, and went about my day. Then, a few minutes later, I realized that I was feeling MUCH more calm.

I have a custom blend (aimed mostly at procrastination, and a lack of self-confidence). I keep it by the computer, so I see it often and remember to use it.

Rescue Remedy works on pets, too. I've used it in taming a feral kitten. And in comforting my dog during her last days. It's amazing stuff!

They're amazing and I custom blend for myself. I absolutely love them and have seen them work over and over again. EVERBODY should have sweet chestnut in their house!

Just picked up two more from the health food store. Olive and ....I think Horn Beam.

I really want to learn more about them. Any other recommendations for books, links, etc. ?

I think Metilde Scheffer (sp?) has the best book.
