Your stress is caused by a mind that is always on, you are passionate about many things and incensed by injustice which means you take too much on. You're unable to let yourself rest. This non stop mental activity can lead to exhaustion, burn out and tension. Vervain will help you unwind and learn when to rest.

You have a feeling of not being able to keep up. The Elm flower remedy will help return confidence to you and help you feel more capable again.


You can be intolerant, judgemental and critical. You're easily irritated and don't suffer fools gladly. This intolerance can lead to an internal stress - you can't see why others wouldn't want to live or behave like you. Beech will help you feel more compassion and understanding.

White Chestnut:

Your mind is whirring a million miles an hour and won't stop. You are consumed by thoughts and an overactive brain either thinking about all the things you have to do or worrying. This non-stop cycle of mental activity is exhausting and you struggle to switch off. White Chestnut is particularly helpful for insomnia where your brain won't stop or you have repetitive thoughts or arguments in your mind. This remedy will help provide calm and order to your hectic brain.


You want everything done in a hurry and get impatient by people or things going too slowly. This can lead to irritation and stress. You have an active mind and can be restless which can lead to tension. This remedy will help with patience and an appreciation for a slower pace of life.

Rock Water:

You are a perfectionist and want everything to be in a certain way. You deny yourself simple pleasures in the pursuit of a perfect life. You have strong opinions on how you and others should live and can be somewhat of a martyr. The Rock Water remedy will help you be more flexible in your thinking.


You are bossy and overbearing. You like to be in charge and can be a powerful energy. This can mean you come across as aggressive at times and you like to order people about. The Vine remedy will help you to be a wise and understanding leader.


On the flip side of the Vine personality, if you are being subjected to a tyrant boss or strong personality, Walnut can help protect you from outside influence and help you to bounce off negative energy from others. It can also be supportive for periods of change that may be stressful for example a divorce, change of job or grief. The Walnut remedy helps to bring protection from outside influence so you can stay true to yourself.

Cherry Plum is for those who feel like they might lose control. You are on the verge of a nervous breakdown and feel like you might explode from stress. Your nerves are stretched to breaking point and you keep getting uncontrollable outbursts of rage and anger. This remedy will help to bring composure and calm.

Rock Rose:

Rock Rose is helpful for panic attacks if your stress and anxiety have gone to a very escalated level. In this mental state the anxiety and panic is sheer terror and you feel frozen, unable to cope. Rock Rose can help provide courage and de-escalate feelings of anxiety.
