Arnica Montana Homeopathic Remedy can be used (while waiting for medical attention) for joint sprain/strain inflammation, head traumas, and internal bleeding after concussion. Keep it in your first aid kit! Also, if you feel you can’t get your head comfortable on your pillow ~ this may your remedy.

*Consult your homeopathic doctor for information.

Back Aches & Pain
For a Compress, find some gauze or a clean piece of fabric. Dilute/mix Eucalyptus (if daytime) or Benzoin Essential Oil* with a carrier oil such as Grapeseed Oil; add to the fabric. Press and hold.

A Soothing Bath is another option. Try a good quality Lavender or Roman Chamomile Essential Oil* diluted and mixed with a carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil before adding to bath water.

*Adults: 5 E.O. drops max per 15ml carrier oil. Consult your holistic health practitioner for contraindications.

Letting Go, Moving Forward
Our back can be associated with our past ~ if you’re living there, remembering a time of great happiness or ambitions not realized, try Honeysuckle Bach Flower Remedy.

For Strength & Vitality
The back also represents what we carry ~ if you feel you have insufficient physical/emotional strength to carry the burdens of life (or daily affairs, though you often succeed), try Hornbeam Bach Flower Remedy.

Musculo-skeletal Juice
From Herbalist Peter Laker, blend: half a carrot, half a celery stalk, a wedge of apple, and a little parsley. Yum!

Quieting the Mind with Bach Flowers

Quieting the Mind with Bach Flowers ~ InnerVitalityBach Flower Remedies were originally created by Edward Bach in England, after his discovery of the emotional/mental healing properties of flowers in the fields where he lived, and later published in 1933. The Remedies are based on the concept that as we heal our cares and anxieties, we free ourselves from the susceptibility to illness, as well as bring about more inner peace.

You’ll still find these wonderful remedies today (created under the same name) at your neighbourhood health store or herbalist. Consult your natural health practitioner for usage or have a peek at the bottle…usually 2 drops in water, sipped at intervals, repeated at least twice a day as needed ~ brings about a gentle shift with powerful results. For quieting the mind, the following Remedies* are recommended:

Cerato ~ For lack of confidence in making decisions. Encourages inner trust and certainty.

Cherry Plum ~ Beneficial where there’s fear of the mind/body giving way. Brings openess, composure.

Mimulus ~ Fear of known things, privately bearing dread. Encourages bravery, courage.

Red Chesnut ~ For those who are anxious for others. Opportunity to cut free, release concern.

Rock Water ~ For rigidity in work and living that denies joy and pleasure. Brings flexibility, softness.

White Chesnut ~ When it feels you can’t shut your mind off. Helps with clarity and tranquility.
