Flower and Crystal Essences for Children

Flower and Crystal Essences for Children

Children respond very quickly to essences and for this reason care needs to be taken when prescribing essences particularly for babies and very young children. Here are some general guidelines and suggestions.

Offered in association with Crystal Herbs

0 - 7 years:- For this age range we recommend that you only use Crystal Herbs Bach Flower Remedies. A well-chosen combination of not more than 4 or 5 remedies will very quickly help to bring children back into balance. Most children enjoy taking their drops directly onto their tongues, however you could also add them to their drinks if necessary. 4 drops 4 x a day is normally enough at this age. For babies the remedies can be added to the bath water or dabbed on the pulse points on the body.
To decide which remedies would most help your child, observe how he or she reacts to the situations around them. You will see that, like adults, each child in a family reacts differently to the same circumstances. For instance one might react with fear while another reacts with anger and yet another might become clingy. By choosing the remedies that will help to balance the states that you observe, you'll greatly help your child to cope with life and its inevitable ups and downs.

A few Bach flower suggestions to get started:-
Revival Remedy - always handy for bumps, bruises accidents and shocks. Also helpful for night terrors along with Aspen and Mimulus.
Agrimony, Larch
and Mimulus for the generally fearful and timid child.
Vervain helpful for the hyperactive state.
Holly, Walnut and Vine for temper tantrums.
Chicory, Willow and Holly For sibling rivalry.
Clematis helpful for the dreamy inattentive child.
Revival Remedy cream always useful for children and adults alike.

8-12 years:- Bach Flower Remedies are also very effective with this age group, however we suggest that you increase the frequency of the dosage to 4 drops 6 x a day. You could also introduce some of our individual flower and crystal essences at this age. Start with one at a time, 4 drops 2 x a day. This will probably be enough for most children. Towards the top of this age range you could mix up to 3 individual essences into a combination maximum dosage 4 drops 3 x a day.

Suggestions for individual flower and crystal essences:-
Pansy This remedy is particularly beneficial for children who are susceptible to colds, sore throats and infections of all kinds.
Celandine Helpful for those who have difficulty assimilating information.
Harebell Helpful for the very shy.
Petunia Helpful for impish and hyperactive children
Nettle Helps children with the stress and trauma related to family problems like divorce or adoption.

Age 12 onwards:- After the age of twelve you can start to introduce Transformation Essences, Chakra Combinations and Planetary Essences, however reduce the dose to 4 drops 1 x 2 a day.

NB:- We do not recommend
that you give Karmic Essences to children under 14 years old or Light Body Essences to children under 16 years old.
NB:-
Using essences is not a substitute for medical attention - if your child is ill consult a medical practitioner.

Choose an Effective Essence Brand

I recommend Crystal Herbs and Healing Herbs as retaining the original strength of the Bach Flowers.

'My twelve year old son was in a state of anxiety whilst settling into a new school. He was tearful, couldn't sleep and needed constant verbal reassurence. I phoned Nikki as I needed more support and advice and had used her myself in the past. After I explained the situation she made a Bach Flower remedy blend for him and the result was phenomenal and immediate. His anxiety was much much less, he felt able to cope and after two days went off happily to school. She didn't even need to meet him in person. It really was remarkable.' C.M. Public Relations Manager

Choosing your Bach Flower blend

Choose up to 5 remedies for a child 7 years old or younger. Read the indications for each remedy to see which applies most closely to your child's current state of mind. The description doesn't have to be a perfect match - one trait's enough to be worth adding to your blend. You can choose more than one from each category. You can't go wrong, if you choose a remedy you don't need, it just passes through. Bach Flowers are safe and don't affect any medication your child may be on.

Confused or Overwhelmed

Elm Helpful for children who need to be 'good'. They are easily discouraged by disapproval. They need to get good marks for homework and care about getting good reports. They respond well to approval and positive comments. When feeling overwhelmed and anxious they will tend to get sick but make restless, unhappy patients, worrying about what they can't do because they're in bed.

Oak For the child that takes life too seriously. They take on a lot of responsibility and feel they must always be reliable and follow through. They will become very upset if they feel they have let someone down. They find it hard to accept help.

 

White Chestnut For the child who has an over-busy mind and can't switch off. Maybe they spend too much time studying or playing computer games - anything which stimulates the mind but not the body. It can be hard to go off to sleep. This helps them switch off and calms the mind. It helps concentration and stuttering.

Lack of Interest or Apathy

Hornbeam For the child who feels jaded, bored and 'flat' - everything is the same old routine. It's hard to get going in the morning. They feel tired and anxious that they won't have enough energy to get everything done, although by the end of the day they have actually got through it all. Taking Hornbeam refreshes their mind, restoring zest and sparkle.

 

 

 

Wild Rose For the child who feels nothing they do will make any difference so why bother. They have very low energy and are chronically bored. Everything feels a lot of pointless effort. They feel they have no power to change things. Taking Wild Rose will restore initiative and vitality. Enthusiasm will flood back and life will feel exciting and interesting again.

 

Gorse For chronic situations or conditions. The child has lost any hope of change. They feel tired inside. They've come to terms with a chronic illness or situation and no longer dare hope for improvement. They may try things to alter the situation but don't really believe it will make any difference. Gorse restores their confidence in a positive outcome. It fills them with hope of a new beginning and helps them see that it's never too late to change.

 

Olive For when your child is exhausted. Taking Olive renews their energy even when they have to make great demands upon it. It helps them pace themselves and draw on an inner strength.

 

 

 

Sweet Chestnut For the child who feels deep despair. Taking Sweet Chestnut allows them to surrender - to 'let go and let God'. It supports deep transformation in moments of tremendous personal crisis.

 

Clematis For the child who daydreams excessively; numbing out pain and reality with romanticised ideas of a happier future or lost in memories. They may knock into things as they're not grounded in their physical body and are indifferent to its fate. They love to retreat into sleep and can faint easily or feel light-headed. Clematis allows them to be fully present and grounded in reality. They're able to put their visions into action and use their creativity to make their dreams happen.

 

Mustard For when sudden gloom descends for no apparent reason. One moment your child is fine, the next everything looks negative and they can't shift their pessimistic outlook. Taking Mustard brings joy; a feeling of being happily in the flow of life, taking life's ups and downs serenely.

Anger, Judgement or Impatience

Holly For the child who is easily triggered to anger. It's easier to be defensive and combative than to be disappointed and hurt again. Taking Holly allows them to open their heart and approach others with goodwill and compassion. They can let go of envy, distrust and suspicion and allow themselves to fully exchange love again. Excellent when there is sibling rivalry.

 

Willow For the resentful child who feel that everyone around them has power except them. They feel exploited by others, a victim of their situation and there's nothing they can do about it except hope that those around them will change their behaviour. Willow helps them take responsibility for their life and make constructive decisions. As they change their response to life they create more positive situations.

 

 

Impatiens For the child who is easily irritated and doesn't enjoy playing or studying closely with others, as they're too slow, take too long to learn and get stuck in detail. This child likes the big vision and gets a buzz from speed. They're mentally tense. They feel constantly frustrated because there isn't enough time. Taking Impatiens allows them to relax and empathise with temperaments different to their own. They feel less driven and can be patient and gentle with themselves and others.

Beech This child judges the actions and feelings of those around them. People's mannerisms annoy them. They set themselves and others high standards and have a strong internal critic for whom nothing they do or say is ever good enough. They feel isolated from others. Taking Beech allows them to see the gift of learning in any less-than-perfect situation. It allows them to respect the strengths and weaknesses of personalities different to their own. They're able to accept and give constructive criticism. They're more accepting of themselves, just as they are.

Obsession or Addiction

Crab Apple This child feels details are important and can lose the bigger picture. They particularly dislike mess and dirt. They have very high standards of cleanliness. Flaws in their behaviour, body or environment can become the focus of their thoughts until resolved. They're very sensitive. Taking Crab Apple helps them accept themselves 'warts and all' as a physical being. They gain a healthier perspective and can see the learnings and growth in situations rather than the imperfections.

Agrimony This child needs harmony and will not speak up as it might rock the boat. They avoid acknowledging their real needs, particularly emotional ones, by watching TV, playing computer games or anything that distracts them. They have a strong need to present a cheerful front to others. They frequently feel restless and need distraction from their internal worry. Everything is always 'fine' no matter how concerned they really feel inside. Their feelings are often expressed as physical complaints, since this is frequently their only outlet. Taking Agrimony allows them to confront situations honestly and openly so that they can grow and mature. They're able to feel genuine optimism and inner peace. They can acknowledge and express their feelings with ease.

Vervain They strive constantly, yet the results often don't reflect the effort they put in. Often considered hyperactive, they amaze people with their energy and enthusiasm but they can't pace themselves and eventually they burn out and crash onto the sofa or into bed, feeling they can't do another thing. They need to convince others of the right way to live and whenthey find a new passion they share it enthusiastically. They hate injustice and are inclined to risk and sacrifice too much to reach their goals. Taking Vervain allows them to use an appropriate amount of energy for each task. They can allow others their own point of view and respect their own path in life. They can inspire and motivate others effortlessly.

Rock Water This child is determined to be a good role model to others in the hope they will follow their example. They rarely relax and will tend to sacrifice their time and effort to a higher ideal of how to live. They're very hard on themselves and follow the rules they set themselves with great discipline. Taking Rock Water allows them to open their mind to new truths and ideas. They're able to have some fun. They can balance their physical and spiritual needs appropriately.

Possessive or Needy

Chicory This child loves to be surrounded by those they care for and may tend to fuss over them. They make themselves indispensable, always ready to give advice and help. They build intense relationships and can feel unappreciated when theyve given unsolicited help. It's only when they don't get the response or appreciation they'd hoped for that you may see that their efforts spring from a need to be loved or appreciated. This kind of giving can create relationships driven by guilt and resentment because real needs are not being clearly identified. Taking Chicory allows them deal with their own emotional needs honestly and directly. They're able to give generously to others whilst genuinely expecting nothing back. They keep healthy boundaries with others, allowing them to walk their own path. They fulfil their own needs and give from a sense of abundance.

Heather This child has little sense of their own identity and needs to be with others. Being alone is frightening and being abandoned is their greatest fear. They need reassurance and can talk quite a lot about their problems to the point where it's hard for them to hear others. Sometimes you can think they have hearing problems but it's just hard for them to pay attention to what others are saying. They can be rather dramatic about their emotional problems. They may try and appear stronger and more competent than they really are. Taking Heather allows them to feel safe, cared for by their Inner Guidance. They're filled with trust that they'll be given everything they need for their development. They can offer empathy and comfort to others.

Holly This child finds it hard to trust that there's enough love to go round. They feel possessive of those they love. Taking Holly allows them to open their heart and approach others with goodwill and compassion. They can feel the limitlessness of love and know there's enough for us all.



Red Chestnut This child worries a great deal about others and may have separation anxiety. Indeed this can be a useful remedy when a child is being weaned or during their first term at school. They may focus their worry on family, their friends, pets or disaster victims they see on TV. They're easily made anxious by a missed phone call or signs of a potential problem. They don't worry about themselves, their attention is directed to others. They can be too emotionally attached and project their worries and fears onto others. Red Chestnut also helps if they're attached to a substance in an addictive way, such as sugar or fizzy drinks. Red Chestnut allows them to empathise with others without taking on their concerns. They're able to throw them a rope rather than climb down into the pit with them. They can respect that others must find their own way to resolve their problems and trust that the outcome will be for their personal growth. They can demonstrate their faith in others' ability to grow and learn from difficult situations.

Controlling or Rigid

Vine This child thinks they know what's right for others and gives much well-intentioned advice. It's hard for them to hear other people's point of view. They like to have the last word and dislike having to bow to authority. They are likely to struggle with a teacher's authority and to be leaders of whatever group they're in. They like to be the 'saviour' of a situation and can be relied on to keep their head in emergencies, when their gift for leadership is most apparent. Taking Vine enables them to value and respect the rights of others and pay attention to their needs. They'll understand how to empower others to help themselves. Their natural authority and ambition is used with wisdom for the good of all.

Vervain This child needs their world to be perfect and will exhaust themselves in heroic efforts to be the best at sports or to hand in the most widely-researched project. If others don't respond to their attempts to convince them of the right way to train, or to play a certain game or resolve a maths problem, they feel frustrated. Taking Vervain allows them to feel when enough is enough. They can allow others their own point of view and respect their path in life. They easily inspire and motivate others.

 

 

Rock Water This child has strict rules they have to live by. When their behaviour goes outside their own moral code they punish themselves. They have a strong sense of right and wrong. Taking Rock Water allows them to open their mind to new truths and ideas. They can have some fun and relax. They can be spontaneous and open.

Sweet Chestnut This child needs to surrender. They need to let go of a relationship or situation that is no longer right for them and take a leap into the unknown. They'd like to give up control and have faith but they feel desperately alone and frightened. Taking Sweet Chestnut will allow them to surrender - to 'let go and let God'

 

Cherry Plum This child feels at breaking point and has a great fear of losing control. They often clench their teeth or grind them at night. They feel on edge, about to snap. They suppress their feelings because they're afraid of them. They may have symptoms of congestion such as a runny nose or constipation. This remedy is helpful just before making important decisions such as changing schools, as many strong and conflicting emotions try to surface. Taking Cherry Plum allows them to deal with their feelings and express them in a calm and appropriate way. It lends them courage and deep spiritual strength in difficult situations. They're able to investigate their feelings and integrate the insights they find to help them move forward.

Stuck or Distracted

Chestnut Bud For the child who keeps repeating the same patterns. You know they've been here before. The characters may have different names but the scenario and the dynamics are the same. The child is often not present, always two steps ahead in their mind and not interested in the current situation. They're keen to move to the next thing rather than take time to digest and evaluate their experiences. They can seem careless or naive to others. They tend to 'push buttons' rather than stop and consult the manual. Taking Chestnut Bud allows them to give themselves the time and peace to learn. They're able to observe their behaviour patterns and reactions in daily life and learn from them. They can comprehend complex situations more quickly and spot possible flaws at an early stage. Migraine and acne can indicate a need for this remedy.

Gorse Despair. For the child who has lost hope. Their situation feels beyond help. They may try things to alter the situation but they don't really think it will make any difference. Gorse restores their confidence and optimism. It fills them with hope of a new beginning and helps them see that it's never too late for things to change.

 

 

Walnut Good for a child when they are frequently distracted from their own purpose by other people's agendas. They're trying to integrate a change into their life - a new sibling, a change in their parents' relationship, a house move or a new school. They feel over-sensitive to outside influences. They need to break the spell of an old relationship or release the influence of someone over them. Taking Walnut helps them make the last step to change. It allows them to be true to themselves and move forward with confidence. It opens them to their inner inspiration, releasing them from outer influences.

Sweet Chestnut This child is clinging on for dear life to what they know. They need to make a big shift but feel completely unsupported with it. Taking Sweet Chestnut will allow them to surrender - to 'let go and let God'. It allows for deep transformation in moments of tremendous personal crisis.

Mood Swings or Indecisiveness

Scleranthus This child is full of inner conflict. They feel pulled this way then that. Their mind is made up - then it changes again. They keep this inner state to themselves so that on the outside they can appear to have mood swings. They can jump from topic to topic in conversation because they lack focus and can respond nervously to outside impulses. Physical symptoms are also erratic with pain moving from place to place in the body, extremes of appetite, energy levels and temperature and problems with balance and motion sickness. Taking Scleranthus helps them focus and concentrate. They're able to make decisions easily and quickly. They become more flexible and are able to integrate many different interests into their life.

Wild Oat This child is good at many things but find it hard to settle and commit to any one course of action. They have no real sense of purpose so feel blown by the wind from one school subject to another and one relationship to another, unable to commit. They frequently feel bored, frustrated and dissatisfied. They tend to get involved in too many things and spread themselves too thin. When this child takes Wild Oat they feel their calling and can commit to a vision for their life which they can follow.

Cerato This child doesn't have much faith in their own judgement. They seek external advice rather than trusting their own intuition, so they can be easily led and influenced by more forceful children. They ask lots of questions and obtain as much information as they can but are unable to act on it. They can be easily swayed by those who seem certain of themselves. They tend to cover all bases to avoid mistakes. When this child takes Cerato they are able to quickly form their own opinion and to trust their inner guidance on any matter. They can stand by their decisions and they're keen to learn.

Fear, Anxiety or Stress

Revival Remedy Also called Rescue Remedy or Five Flower Remedy in other ranges. This is a combination of Clematis, Impatiens, Star of Bethlehem, Rock Rose and Cherry Plum. If you choose Revival Remedy as one of the eight remedies for your child's blend, it counts as one remedy, so you don't need any of the five remedies it contains added separately. i.e. if you choose Revival Remedy you don't also need Impatiens. Your child needs Revival Remedy if they feel shocked emotionally or physically. If they're anticipating a stressful event such as an exam, surgery or their first day at school. They may have panic attacks. They may work in an academically pressured environment. Taking Revival Remedy reactivates the body's rebalancing mechanism, helping them release shock and relax. It works within minutes. It's good to take if your child feels they're in the run up to a migraine, menstrual cramps, boils or indigestion. You can apply it externally on bandages and compresses. Useful also to apply to the lips or pulse points of someone who has fainted. It's also available as a cream with the addition of Crab Apple. The cream is wonderful for bruises, sprains, scars, spots, bedsores or any skin complaint.

Rock Rose Wonderful if your child has night terrors and wakes up sweating in panic. If, when your child contemplates a course of action it makes their heart beat fast and their stomach churn. Their solar plexus is tense and they sometimes feel like they've been punched in the stomach. Their mind races and they can't think clearly; they have a sensitive nervous system. Some children may not show it on the outside but inside they're often in a state of inner alarm. Taking Rock Rose enables them to regain their presence of mind. They feel calm and can connect to their inner guidance. They will feel full of courage and are able to do things which previously filled them with alarm.

Aspen For the child who feels a nameless dread and sensitivity, particularly to atmospheres. When people talk of psychic matters this child gets goosebumps. They have nightmares and occasional premonitions. They feel anxious and may have anxiety attacks. Taking Aspen allows them to move forward with confidence and without fear. They're able to use their sensitivity to gain a deeper understanding of the metaphysical world.

 

 

Mimulus This child feels nervous and timid in certain situations. They may put up a good front or they may be obviously shy. Inside they feel frightened of some specific situation or person but they don't talk about it. They feel anxious about carrying out quite mundane daily activities and may have phobias such as fear of the dark or spiders. The world seems a difficult and dangerous place so they proceed over-cautiously, sometimes procrastinating over decisions because of their anxiety. They like to be left in peace, though it can be frightening for them to be alone. When they face their fears they can easily fall ill. Taking Mimulus allows them to face the world with courage and composure. They feel equal to the challenges of life and have compassion for others' fears and sensitivities.

Red Chestnut This child worries a great deal about others. Their family, their friends, pets or disaster victims they see on TV. They're easily made anxious by a missed phone call or signs of a potential problem. They don't worry about themselves, their attention is directed to others. They can be too emotionally attached and project their worries and fears onto others. Red Chestnut also helps if they're attached to a substance in an addictive way, such as sugar or fizzy drinks. Red Chestnut allows them to empathise with others without taking on their concerns. They're able to throw them a rope rather than climb down into the pit with them. They can respect that others must find their own way to resolve their problems and trust that the outcome will be for their personal growth. They can demonstrate their faith in others' ability to grow and learn from difficult situations.

Cherry Plum This child feels at breaking point and has a great fear of losing control. They often clench their teeth or grind them at night. They feel on edge all the time, about to snap. They suppress their feelings because they're afraid of them. They may have symptoms of congestion such as a runny nose or constipation. This is a great remedy just before making important decisions, such as what subjects to take at school or whether to change schools, as many strong and conflicting emotions surface at such a time. Taking Cherry Plum allows them to deal with their feelings and express them in a calm and appropriate way. It lends them courage and deep spiritual strength in difficult situations. They are able to investigate their feelings and integrate the insights they find to help them move forward.

Star of Bethlehem The perfect remedy when your child has suffered a shock, whether physical or emotional. Perhaps they've had an argument with someone or hurt themselves physically or emotionally. This child finds strong or intense emotional states very hard to process. People's rudeness leaves them outraged. Their reactions are slow, as though they're sedated and they may suffer from water retention and bruise easily. They often have a recurring nightmare. This is an excellent remedy for psychosomatic symptoms related to shock. Taking Star of Bethlehem allows a child to relate to people's feelings with great sensitivity. It helps them deal appropriately with their own feelings so that they can grow from them. They can extend great comfort to others and feel comforted themselves.

Isolation, Sorrow or Loss

Water Violet For the child who needs privacy and lots of personal space. They value their independence very highly. They enjoy time alone to reflect and contemplate and can appear rather aloof and unapproachable to others. They often want to withdraw from relationships or situations and don't like other people becoming involved in their personal affairs. They find emotional conflict exhausting and find it hard to approach others, particularly in group situations. They can feel tense and isolated. Taking Water Violet allows them to feel connected to others, whilst still maintaining a comfortable distance. They're able to reach out to others when necessary whilst maintaining their independence.

Honeysuckle This child dwells in the past, thinking of happier times with rose-tinted glasses; they like to talk about happy events such as days out with the family with a wistful air. They feel their happiest moments have passed and the future is unlikely to be that good again. It's hard for them to adapt to changing circumstances and new developments. They want to determine their own destiny, rather than to relax into life's flow. They have little interest in the wider world and no expectations for the future. They still regret lost opportunities or old relationships; perhaps still sad if they lost touch with a schoolfriend. They tend to hoard objects of sentimental value and have a poor memory of past events. Taking Honeysuckle brings them present to now. They can see how the past has a bearing on the present. They're able to bring what's of real value from the past and create it anew in your current life.

Low Self-Esteem or Lack of Confidence

Larch This child feels others can do things better than they can, so they don't try. They compare themselves with those who shine and feel they couldn't match up. They assume there are limitations to anything they want to do and can always justify not starting something. They're actually very capable but have conditioned themselves to avoid failure. Illness can be used as a way of avoiding attempting something. Their position in class doesn't match their abilities. Taking Larch allows them to assess their personal strengths and weaknesses objectively. It strengthens their self-belief so that they can use their talents to the full. They're able to take opportunities with reasonable expectations and contribute their real worth to school and family.

Pine This child has low self worth and is easily guilt-tripped. They accept the blame even when it isn't their fault and apologise profusely even for being ill. They have a strong sense of right and wrong and expect to be punished, often taking on burdens and sacrificing themselves. They don't feel they really deserve to be here. They judge themselves harshly and cut themselves off from love. Taking Pine gives them one of the greatest gifts we can have - self-acceptance. They accept everyone deserves to be here, including themselves. They accept themselves as worthy of love and are able to receve praise and appreciation. They understand the limits of responsibility and become clear where appropriate boundaries lie.

Centaury This child finds it hard to say no to others' requests. They find it challenging to put down boundaries and maintain them without feeling guilty. They give to the point of exhaustion and can be unrealistic about their time and resources so they often have no time left to look after themselves. They anticipate others' needs and leap to meet them, even to the point of denying their own. Taking Centaury makes them aware of their own needs and helps them to say 'no' when they need to. They're able to be in groups whilst staying true to their own goals and values.

 

 

Cerato For the child who has little confidence in their inner wisdom and their ability to make decisions. They don't have much faith in their own judgement. They seek external advice rather than trusting their intuition. They ask lots of questions and obtain as much information as they can but are unable to act on it. They can be easily swayed by those who seem certain of themselves. They tend to cover all bases to avoid mistakes. When they take Cerato they're able to quickly form their own opinion and trust their inner guidance on any matter. They can stand by their decisions and they're keen to learn.

Disappointment or Distrust

Gentian For the child who can't trust the unfolding of events. They feel every delay or setback is a reason to give up or a sign not to continue.

 

 

 

Holly This child feels guarded and suspicious when new people come into their sphere. It's hard to trust that there's enough love to go around. They question people's motives. Taking Holly allows them to open their heart and approach others with goodwill and compassion. They can let go of envy, distrust and suspicion and allow themselves to fully exchange love again.

Back to Top

Spiritual Disconnection

Wild Oat For the child who feels disconnected from any drive or purpose, drifting without direction. They frequently feel bored, frustrated and dissatisfied. They tend to get involved in too many things and spread themselves too thin. When they take Wild Oat they feel their soul calling and are able to commit to the right direction for them.

Gentian This child feels disappointed at any setback to their plans. When they don't get the outcome they want, they assume this is a sign that the Universe isn't supporting them and they won't succeed. They're filled with doubt and need reassurance. Taking Gentian allows them to see setbacks and delays as learning steps and opportunities for review. They're able to maintain a positive outlook and feel certain of finding solutions. They're able to encourage others.

 

Mustard This child feels totally negative. Nothing can lift their spirits and it's difficult to feel any loving connection. Taking Mustard brings joy; a feeling of being happily in the flow of life, taking life's ups and downs serenely.

 

 

 

White Chestnut For the child whose mind won't stop. Their thoughts go round and round. It's hard to sleep and as soon as they wake their mind sets off again. It's difficult to prioritise or concentrate on one task. White Chestnut helps their mind to quieten so they can think and express themselves clearly. It helps concentration, meditation and stuttering. They can more easily get in touch with your inner wisdom.

 

Gorse For when a child feels despairing. All hope is gone. Gorse restores their confidence in a positive outcome. It fills them with hope of a new beginning and helps them see that it's never too late to change.

 

 

Sweet Chestnut For when a child feels abandoned by God. They can't bear their situation any longer and feel totally alone. They need to surrender but they fear this means the end of the road and disaster awaits. Taking Sweet Chestnut allows them to surrender - to 'let go and let God'. It facilitates deep transformation in moments of tremendous personal crisis.
