Crisis Formula (a.k.a ‘Rescue’ Formula)
The five remedies were specifically chosen by Dr. Bach as an emergency composite because combined they form an appropriate all-around traditional crisis remedy. It is the only combination in the Bach system.
The five remedies which are combined together to form the crisis remedy are:
Star Of Bethlehem– for shock and loss
Rock Rose– for great fear and panic
Impatiens– for mental and physical tension when the sufferer cannot relax; the mind agitated and irritable
Cherry Plum– to help the mind stay rational and in control
Clematis– used to combat the faint, far-away, disconnected feelings that can come during an emergency.
Crisis formula can be a life-saver and for any minor traumatic situations, such as stress, emergencies, after getting bad news, before an exam or job interview. The remedies quickly get us back in our normal balance so that we can calmly deal with any situation.
This combination has proven to be immensely successful in helping millions of people around the world.
Some people, however, rely too much on the emergency combination. They would find surer and long-lasting solutions if they selected mixes of single remedy and made up personal treatment bottles.
Every remedy manufacturer has its version of this combination, and some produce it in spray and pastille form, or in alcohol-free formulations. In an emergency, the ‘rescue’ formula is likely to be near to hand, so that you can respond at once.
The saying to bear in mind is, if you need rescuing every day, treat the underlying cause instead.
In the market, Dr. Bach’s ‘rescue’ combination is also known as ‘5flower’ or ‘Rescue Remedy’ by the various brands.
To take the remedy, put 4 drops in a glass of water and sip until relief is obtained.
The remedy could be applied on the lips, behind the ears/ or wrists if the person is unconscious.
Crisis formula is also available in a cream version for easy topical application.
