Pot Marigold, Red Clover and Rose (rosehip). Seeds lie quiet and still. The plant's frenzied activity of the year is now encapsulated in something dormant.

Take regularly, 4 drops, 4 times daily. They can also be taken more frequently if required. Flower remedies should be used as part of a management program for any panic attack. The regular taking of the remedies affirms the desire to improve, get better, take positive steps forward.
Since they can do no harm, the remedies can be used more frequently, for example when you first feel an attack coming on or when you enter or are about to enter into situations you know may well provoke such an attack. Holding the bottle at times of stress is an excellent way of staying close to the qualities of the flower remedies.
Persian Lilac - for those amongst us who continually put others first, leaving little time for personal needs - too easily put upon.
Bellflower and Oak - fostering patience and endurance - supporting hard physical work - putting our responsibilities as a carer into context of our whole life - reminding us of the honour and privilege there is in caring for others.
Red Chestnut and Yarrow - stimulating the aura's defenses to help us distance ourselves psychically from those in our care - preventing us becoming overly concerned, anxious and protective towards others.
Rock Rose - for times when the burden of being a carer can seem too much to bear - despair about the future - seeing no way out.
Christ Thorn - helping us to remain calm and collected - avoiding being pulled in different directions at the same time - stimulates the High Heart Chakra, seat of Unconditional Love.
Seed Essence: Rocket. Seeds are hard and resilient, good at enduring; perfect qualities to add through this seed essence to this combination.
In public places, such as work, meetings, or shopping, people with social anxiety feel that everyone is watching, staring, and judging them (even though rationally they know this isn't true). For this type of vulnerability we use the flower remedies of Lloydia, Christ Thorn, Bougainvillea and Blackthorn.
The socially anxious person can't relax, "take it easy", and enjoy themselves in public. In fact, they can never fully relax when other people are around. It always feels like others are evaluating them, being critical of them, or "judging" them in some way. For this type of lack of self-confidence we use the flower remedies of Carduus Thistle, Larch, Sage and Sunflower.
For the self-consciousness produced by social anxiety we use Hibiscus flower remedy. The socially anxious person contributes very little to social situations because of their fear and level of stress yet if truth be know they have a great deal to offer. For this particular type of shyness we use Mignonette .
It's sometimes impossible to let go, relax, and focus on anything else except the anxiety and fear. Because the anxiety is so very painful, it's much easier just to stay away from social situations and avoid other people altogether. For this state of mind we use Rock Rose to manage the feeling of panic, Garlic for the fear and Oregano to help let go of the anxiety.

Petunia flower essence is an anti-depressant, encouraging us to go within and face the blocks or denials that are at the root of our depression.

Lloydia a miniature white Lilly which has a powerful influence upon the chakra directly above the head (soul star). One of the functions of this chakra is to screen all that enters our personal energy system. If we find we are being invaded by pollutants this essence will stimulate our filters, making them more active and efficient

Christ thorn. This common Mediterranean flower has thorny sepals to protect it against attack; this quality is transferred to the essence. Christ thorn activates the chakra midway between the soul and earth stars, the high heart which stimulates our natural ability to defend ourselves against external influences.
Yarrow strengthens our aura to block the influences of radioactivity and negative thought forms which may be projected, consciously or unconsciously, towards us. It prevents us becoming too empathetic with the pain and suffering of others.

Energy Balance contains the Chakra Flower Essences for the seven major chakras. These simple healing essences of nature unblock and realign the chakras to restore balance and harmony. Daffodil, nasturtium, celandine, passion flower, sage, red dead nettle and comfrey.
Each and everyone of us requires balancing on some level, be that physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Our scales need the same amount of weight on both sides, a balance needs to be struck in all aspects of our life in order to maintain health and well being. Adequate time needs to be apportioned to both work and play, recreation and activity, caring for ourselves and caring for others, our inner and outer lives. If we are in balance we feel at peace, at one with the world, in harmony with the rhythms of life. This is an excellent combination to iron out the ups and downs of life, to be taken at times of stress, trauma or shock, or to use on a daily basis as a tonic to the entire system. Energy Balance helps the body to maintain healthy patterns within the chakras so that they draw in adequate life force or prana.
