White Chestnut stops the mental merry-go-round of unwanted obsessive thoughts. If you keep imagining the worst possible scenarios, reliving bad past experiences to add to your anxiety, White Chestnut can put a damper on that.
Here is a study done at the Center for Improvement of Health Sciences of the Zerbini Foundation using flower essences for anxiety. According to the study, "Most people (80%) who used the floral essences referred that, even when confronted with stressful events, they managed to stay calm, with clear ideas and concentrated. Others (60%) indicated that they started to feel less irritated and impatient towards situations that normally bothered them. Concerning the physical aspect, the most mentioned differences were improved sleeping pattern (40%), decreased headaches (26.6%) and muscle pain (20%)."
We believe the flowers used in the Stay Calm blend are much better targeted than the flowers used in the study, although White Chestnut is a common denominator.
Can I Use Flower Essences With Anxiety Medication?
Yes. Flower essences work on an energetic level so there are no conflicts or contraindications with anxiety medications or any other drugs. It's completely fine to use both. However, you and your doctor should monitor your progress, because taking flower essences such as Stay Calm to work on emotional triggers and underlying roots along with a medication can cause you to become over-medicated as you come back into a healthier state. You'll need to work with your doctor to step down your medication.
Are Flower Essences Safe?
Yes, there has never been a documented case of harm. That is not something you can say about other supplements or essential oils. There are no contraindications, interactions or ways to overdose.
How Do Flower Essences Work?
They use the frequencies or energy of the flowers to heal negative emotional states. These frequencies are then imprinted onto water as a carrier that can charge all of the water in your body, thus shifting your frequency and mood. For a deeper explanation, click here. Each flower does it's own very specific type of healing, so it's important to choose flowers that "hit the nail on the head" for the emotional distress that you have. Blends make it easier to have a good match.
