Rescue Remedy

12 items

In the 1930s, Dr Edward Bach combined five flower essences and created the Rescue Remedy.


Recognizable by its distinctive yellow branding, the blend is now shipped around the world.


Available in dropper, spray, tablet and other formats, Bach originally created the mixture to help people deal more effectively with personal emergencies and crises.


He made Rescue Remedy for those situations where there is no time to carefully choose among different flower and plant remedies.


The flower essences used in the remedy are still made at Bach’s old home today, in Oxfordshire, using the same methods he originally employed.


The essences are then sent to a factory in London to be diluted and bottled.


What does Rescue Remedy do?


People use Rescue Remedy for stressful situations, such as just before taking an exam; after receiving bad news; for interview nerves, and much more.


The goal of this remedy is to help you relax, feel calm, and focus.


Active ingredients of Rescue Remedy


Dr Bach chose the five flowers based on what he considered to be the five common negative states of mind that people regularly experience.


The five flowers are:


Rock rose


Bach believed this evergreen shrub to be suitable for helping with overwhelming and scary situations, offering courage and presence of mind.




Known as touch-me-not in the US, this purple, pink, or white flower represents patience.




Part of the buttercup family, this species is believed to be helpful for people who feel out of touch with things.


Bach believed that clematis helps users to focus on the present world and take a strong interest in their current environment.


Star of Bethlehem


This pretty little white flower is native to the Mediterranean region and parts of Africa.


For Bach, this flower represents comfort and taking a deep breath in the face of a bad experience.


It is about being strong, and being able to balance emotions in order to deal with a situation.


Cherry Plum


Bach considered this sweet fruit to be helpful for a calm mind, in order to be able to think and act rationally.


The flower essences are then preserved in a grape-based brandy or sunflower-based glycerine.


How to use Rescue Remedy


Holland & Barrett sell the Rescue Remedy mixture in pastille, dropper, and spray formats.


We also provide liquid melts, creams, and lozenges.


Rescue Remedy pastilles


The pastilles are naturally flavoured with blackcurrant, but are alcohol and sugar free.


They come in a convenient click-shut tin and are suitable for any ages. Chew one pastille whenever you need.


Rescue Remedy liquid melts


Liquid melts are used in a similar way – you just place a capsule on your tongue when required.


The capsule dissolves quickly, releasing four drops of the remedy. These melts do contain a carrier grapeseed oil, as well as fish gelatine.


Rescue Remedy night dropper


The spray may help if you struggle to get a good night’s sleep.


It is alcohol free, so fine for the whole family. As you try to sleep, put four drops directly onto your tongue. Or, you can add four drops to water and then sip it slowly.


The dropper is used in a similar way, with four drops on your tongue or in water for a good sleep.


Rescue Remedy cream


For dry, rough, or sensitive skin, you might like to try using Nelsons Rescue Remedy Cream.


This cream is actually made up of six flower essences, the extra one being Malus pumila or the apple tree.


The cream can be applied generously to the affected area, and is suitable for all ages.


Rescue Plus effervescent tablets


Lastly, effervescent tablets have a berry flavour, but are sugar free.


Keep going on the most hectic days feeling energised and full of vitality. In addition to the five flower essences, the tablets contain vitamin B12 and B5 as well as magnesium.


The magnesium can help with releasing energy for food and also contributes to the reduction of tiredness.


Dissolve a tablet in a glass of water as you start your day or shift.

What is Bach Rescue Remedy?

Originally developed by physician and homeopath Dr Edward Bach way back in the 1930s, Rescue Remedy is a special blend of flower essences. These essences have been selected for their soothing and calming potential.


Bach Flower Rescue Remedy was originally developed as a liquid formula and Rescue Remedy drops are still extremely popular today. 


However, there is now a wide range of Rescue Remedy products available, giving you a wealth of options to suit your preferences.

What does Rescue Remedy contain?

Rescue Remedy contains a classic blend of five flower essences. 


These essences are rock rose, impatiens, clematis, star of Bethlehem and cherry plum. 


Each flower essence is chosen for its special ability to bring calmness, clarity and strength to some people during challenging times.

When should I take Rescue Remedy?

Rescue Remedy is formulated to help you to deal with times of stress and doubt. 


This special blend of floral essences can aid you when you are feeling unsure of yourself, down in the dumps, tense or anxious.


It is popularly used ahead of exams or driving tests and before job interviews or big meetings. 


It may also help those who are afraid of flying feel calmer during travel and can also be an aid in winding down after a difficult day at work.

How should I take Rescue Remedy?

Rescue Remedy drops are easy to use. Dispense four drops from the pipette directly onto your tongue at times of stress. 


Alternatively, drip those four Rescue drops into a glass of water and sip at your leisure.


Rescue Remedy spray, liquid melts, lozenges and pastilles are also available. 


Each remedy contains Dr Bach’s classic blend of flower essences, and many people prefer to enjoy the sweet taste of a lozenge, pastille or melt. These solutions are also a convenient choice, especially when you are on the go.

When should I choose Rescue Remedy Night? What’s the difference?

Rescue night remedies contain an additional ingredient – white chestnut essence. 


This special ingredient is thought to aid a restful night, while Rescue Remedy’s classic floral essences help to settle the mind and ease you into a calmer state.


Choose Rescue Remedy Night when you are struggling to switch off and find rest.


A natural alternative to sleeping pills, Rescue Remedy sleep solutions can help you find your way to an undisturbed night without the groggy feeling the following morning. 


This gentle solution, available as drops, a spray or in liquid melts, can help you to awake feeling refreshed and ready to face the day ahead.

Will I experience any side effects from Rescue Remedy products?

There are no reported side effects from taking Rescue Remedy products.


Rescue Remedy is considered to be safe for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, although it is always recommended to consult your GP or midwife before taking any new remedy or supplement.


Because Rescue Remedy’s flower essences are preserved in tiny amounts of brandy, it is not recommended for anybody who is avoiding alcohol for religious, medical or other reasons.
