Cherry Plum... ...is one of the remedies that Dr Bach grouped together under the heading of 'Fear'. The Cherry Plum fear is very specific: it is the fear that one is going to lose control of oneself and do something dreadful, which can include injuring others and suicide.
Cherry Plum is also the remedy for the loss of control when it has in fact already taken place, and because because of the frantic fear and dread associated with loss of control. (Think of the fear of a small child in a screaming, irrational rage.) Fears of going mad and of acting irrationally are Cherry Plum fears. Cherry Plum is one of the ingredients of Rescue Remedy.
The essences are easy to take and can be taken in a variety of ways:
Single essences use: Add 2 drops in water and sip at intervals or add to a 30ml mixing bottle containing natural spring water; take 4 drops a minimum of 4 times a day.
Multiple essence use: Add 2 drops of each remedy (maximum of 7 essences) to a mixing bottle containing still spring water; take 4 drops a minimum of 4 times a day.
You can add a teaspoon of brandy or cider vinegar to the mixing bottle to act as a preservative if you wish.
30ml Mixing bottle can be bought ready-to-use from your Bach™ Original Flower Remedies stockist
You can take the essences undiluted direct from the stock bottle. Just take two drops on your tongue and repeat as necessary.
If you are pregnant or breast feeding consult your doctor before use. All Bach original flower remedies contain alcohol as a preservative and therefore may be unsuitable for some people.
