A combination of five English flower essences first developed by Dr. Edward Bach, promoting calm and balance in diverse situations of stress, emergency, and trauma.
The Five-Flower Formula™ is praised throughout the world by health practitioners and lay persons. The formula of five different flower essences was developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s through his own practice and observation. Over the years it has come to be regarded as a "rescue" combination for its remarkable ability to address emergency and crisis conditions.
Prepared in rural England by renowned teacher and naturalist, Julian Barnard of Healingherbs, Ltd., the formula is made according to the original directions of Dr. Bach. True to Bach's original intentions, it is not prepared or labeled as a homeopathic remedy. It is available either preserved with organic and Biodynamic® grape alcohol.

This blend really works for me when I have cramps, and soothes the anxiety and sensitive digestion that's caused by hormonal changes during this time. It feels like a warm hug for my belly, very soothing and comforting.
