“I always travel with a bottle of First Aid Kit from Alexis Smart. Great for travel anxiety, jet lag, emotional well-being. Also Alexis’s room spray is great to clear the energy of hotel rooms or spray around you once you sit down on the plane.”
— Lauren Spencer King, Fields Of Study
“I bought First Aid Kit to help aid my child initially but we have all used it. When my husband was going through stressful times at work he came home and I gave him 2 doses (10 minutes apart)and found he calmed right down and was able to refocus and literally changed from flight/fight to a calmer and more centered person. I use it whenever anxiety rears its head. Also my daughter is prone to tripping due to enthusiasm and a carefree attitude, First Aid Kit really helps with her bumps and grazes.”
"First Aid has always been a life saver (began with Bach's rescue remedy and yours has been more effective by far). I love your wealth of information and your guidance is much appreciated."
— Erin S.
Please avoid taking more than one formula at a time, as it lessens the effectiveness. (First Aid Kit is the exception and can be taken at any time.)
Regular: Handcrafted with organic, biodynamic brandy, spring water and a proprietary blend of organic, wild-harvested *Bach flower essences.
CAN I DRINK COFFEE OR ALCOHOL WHILE TAKING FLOWER REMEDIES?
Yes! It’s completely fine to drink coffee and alcohol when you are using flower remedies.
IS IT STRONGER TO TAKE THE WHOLE BOTTLE AT ONCE?
The standard dose is four drops, four times a day, under the tongue. Regular use of the flower remedies builds the strength of their action. Therefore, potency is increased not by taking more drops at one time, but by using them on a frequent, consistent basis. The remedies should be taken four times daily, although this may need to be increased in acute situations to once every hour, or even more often. (First Aid Kit may be used every ten minutes).
I ONLY HAVE SOME OF THE SYMPTOMS LISTED. WILL THIS WORK FOR ME?
Pick the formula that most relates to your feelings and emotional state overall, at the moment. If some of the symptoms listed do not pertain to you, the formula will still be effective in treating the symptoms you do have. An inappropriate remedy will not hurt or cause adverse reaction.
HOW LONG DOES THE REMEDY TAKE TO WORK?
The remedies can work immediately in certain situations (First Aid Kit, Moon River and Wholehearted are fast-acting), but for long-term issues it will take three weeks to one month to see changes. The effects of flower remedies are cumulative. Remedies must be taken as directed to feel the benefits.
WHAT ABOUT ALLERGIES TO POLLENS/TREES?
Flower remedies are safe for allergy sufferers. Because they are so dilute, they are considered vibrational medicine, containing only trace amounts of the original plant material.
