Rock Rose (Helianthemum nummularium)
Rock Rose is the remedy against terror, and as such is an important ingredient in Dr Bach’s traditional crisis combination. The Rock Rose state may start out as a more everyday Mimulus or Red Chestnut state, but it is further along the path from these, being a panicky, terror-struck fear that makes conscious thought and decision next to impossible. The remedy provides calm and courage. We are able to forget fear as our courage is renewed.
Dr Bach’s Description (from The Twelve Healers And Other Remedies)
The rescue remedy. The remedy of emergency for cases where there even appears no hope. In accident or sudden illness, or when the patient is very frightened or terrified or if the condition is serious enough to cause great fear to those around. If the patient is not conscious the lips may be moistened with the remedy. Other remedies in addition may also be required, as, for example, if there is unconsciousness, which is a deep, sleepy state, Clematis; if there is torture, Agrimony, and so on.
Take 30 ml of cider vinegar and add 2 drops of Bach Flower Remedy to the vinegar and shake well. This solution is now the remedy you should use. To take the remedy do not place the drops onto the tongue as is the usual way of taking remedies, instead, add 4 drops to a glass of mineral water or fruit juice from the refrigerator and take the Remedy that way. If these instructions are followed the remedy will be 0.16%.
