For a few months, we’ve been without one of everyone’s favorite nervous system products Distress Remedy. We know this is a product you really want, and we’re excited to bring this new formula to you. This version, a flower essence, was created by Steven Horne and contains many of the same ingredients as our old formula, including arnica, star of Bethlehem, rock rose, impatiens and cherry plum. It also features clematis and star thistle for emotional support during times of stress or tension.
Flower remedies are liquid extracts made from carefully selected flowers. They have been used for several decades to help with emotional well-being. Dr. Edward Bach, a surgeon in England in the 1930s, set out to find natural ways to address the emotional states of people. He studied English flowers and plants and developed over three dozen flower essences for a large variety of specific emotional states.
Others in this field studied flower remedies from North American sources. Now Nature’s Sunshine has its own unique line of both English and North American flower essences that feature flowers grown in certified organic gardens and pristine wildcrafted habitats. These essences were formulated by Master Herbalist and famed author and NSP lecturer, Steven Horne. He explains:
“You may have heard the term Emotional First Aid Kit. I think every home should have one. Flower essences help people get through the basic emotional imbalances we go through in our lives.
“There’s a lot of anger and fear in our nation right now. Many people are suffering losses, whether with financial situations, the market, lost homes, jobs, loved ones, etc. I believe that people really need help processing their emotions. This is a product line whose time has come. I think we all have a unique opportunity to help others as they search for help in dealing with emotional issues.
“I’ve been doing emotional work for 25 years. It’s a huge part of what I do. When you include the emotional with the physical, you get much more dramatic results, and people feel better a lot faster. These flower remedies are unique. No one else has them or anything like them.”
