Bach Flowers For Mother and Daughter

Bach Flowers For Mother and Daughter

Bach Flowers are among my very favourite natural medicines because they are so very gentle however really effective. They fall into the category of “energy” medicines because they don’t contain what we think of as standard active elements. Unlike homeopathic medicines which tend to be associated with physical signs and symptoms, they are chosen solely on emotional indications so they are very simple to use. Here are a few that I have chosen especially for situations that can relate particularly well to moms and their girls.

CHERRY PLUM is for anyone who feels overwhelmed with big emotions and fears losing control. It is great for moms who are losing patience with their kids, or girls having big hormonal swings with all the emotional instability that can bring. It’s for those who feel afraid to talk about their feelings, or who just can’t express how they are feeling.

CRAB APPLE is the best cure to help girls who suffer from a really poor self-image. In particular, this cure addresses feelings of being unattractive or already dirty and has been known to help with compulsive washing, facial cleansing or fear of germs.

LARCH is the cure of self-confidence for those who feel they can’t do anything right, or that nothing they do can ever succeed. The adolescent years are a time when we must adapt to sudden changes to our physical body – we can already lose a sense of who we are and what we are capable of. This is not only a cure for teens, because most mothers lose confidence in their parenting skills at some point or other. This cure can be a big help in putting you back in a confident place.

WALNUT is great protection for times of major change, like changing schools, moving away, breaking or forming new relationships or starting a new job. This is highly recommended for moms during situations of separation/divorce, or the initial stages of making a blended family.

VINE is for those with strong leadership qualities who become dictatorial, demanding, or already bullying when under stress – either at home or in social situations. It is a great cure that can be given to teens who may be forcing lots of negative energy out onto their course of action of friends. Vine can put them back into place as strong personalities who don’t overwhelm others around them!

RED CHESTNUT is for those who are overwhelmed with concern for the safety or wellbeing of others. Sometimes it’s because the bond is so strong, you take on the problems or pain of others as if it were your own. Any mother who has ever accompanied a child by a painful breakup can probably relate! Some children could get into this state in addition if a parent is ill or in current emotional distress.

WATER VIOLET is for the girl who won’t proportion her troubles, who prefers to be alone already when in obvious need of sustain. This cure is a lovely way to help a girl you love who isn’t already at the point of being able to ask for help, but who really needs it!

Bach Flower remedies are obtainable at many health food stores. You can take them alone or in combination. A few drops in a glass of water can be sipped at intervals, or just regularly throughout the day. There is a lot of information obtainable online to help you choose the right ones, but sometimes it helps to have a practitioner ask specific questions to thin down the search. I love working with these remedies, so don’t hesitate to contact me.
