Featured Bach Flower: Vine

     Vine: Very capable people, certain of their own ability, confident of success. Being so assured, they think that it would be for the benefit of others if they could be persuaded to do things as they themselves do, or as they are certain is right. Even in illness they will direct their attendants. They may be of great value in emergency.

     Details: Vine helps to restore the principle of balanced leadership through the right use of power and will. Those in need of Vine have a tendency to be over bearing, dominating, certain that they are right and need to take control in every situation. They can find it very hard to hear another’s point of view and will intimidate others weaker than themselves, often without realizing what they are doing. Extreme examples of this personality type are the ruthless tyrant or bully. Vine helps to open the heart and to remind the personality that positive leadership is the result of a partnership between the heart and the mind.

Self Care to Help Anxiety

     Aromatherapy: Aromatherapy is a good treatment for anxiety, and you can do it on your own. Lavender oil is particularly effective, but you can also use jasmine or sandalwood.

     Vitamins: Vitamin B in particular can often cause anxiety. Try taking a daily supplement of a B-complex tablet.

     Meditation: Learn some meditation and yoga techniques to calm yourself. If nothing else, closing your eyes and breathing deeply will do. These techniques can be used whenever you start to get an anxiety attack, and also as part of your daily routine.

     Exercise: A daily workout will help you calm down. The physical exertion itself helps fight anxiety, plus it prompts your body to produce certain chemicals that calm you and make you feel good.

     Bathing: When you feel an anxiety attack coming on, you can have a cold shower or soak in a warm bath, whichever works for you.

     Drink Water or Tea: When you start to feel stressed out, drink a whole glass of water, or else sit back and sip a cup of tea.
