Cherry Plum Bach Flower: For fear of the mind losing control
Cherry Plum Bach flower remedy is for those who feel that their mind might give way. That the mind is under so much strain it can’t take much more. The person feels like they’re at the edge of breaking point and fear what they might do next. They have been under so much stress and strain, and they are completely overloaded and can’t think rationally anymore. Sometimes people might describe it like sitting on a powder keg, on the verge of exploding.
Sometimes it’s not always obvious that a person is in this negative Cherry Plum state as we are often taught by society to repress these feelings and keep a calm outer exterior, no matter what is going on inside. Perhaps the person isn’t even allowing themselves to feel these extreme emotions in an open way. This can be linked to a fear of letting go and being open with your feelings.
In its most extreme state, there is a danger of suicide or the possibility of hurting others in which case emergency medical help should be sought immediately.
In the positive state, the remedy provides composure, courage and strength to deal with emotions and express them fully.

- You fear you might be heading for a nervous breakdown
- You feel like there’s a ticking time bomb inside you
- You may experience rage or violent outbursts

Cherry Plum Use Cases – Parents & Children
We are often faced with situations that might test our patience to the extreme, for example parenting can come with many fraught situations, dealing with screaming children, siblings fighting, constant nagging or not listening…. Many parents end up feeling pushed to breaking point and on the verge of a breakdown. The Cherry Plum remedy can help bring a sense of composure and strength. In addition, parents should try to create some time for themselves and focus on self-care or reaching out to a support network. At an extreme some may feel like they may hit their child. Please seek help from a medical professional in this case.
With regards to children, children who wet the bed can often benefit from Cherry Plum flower remedy. These children spend the day trying not to lose control. At night-time there is no conscious control, and they express their inner anxieties by wetting the bed.
Cherry Plum flower remedy can also be supportive for toddlers who are in the midst of a meltdown and have lost control to help them regain composure. It is also worthwhile exploring other flower remedies alongside Cherry Plum as there are often reasons why a child is having a tantrum – for example impatience with not being able to do something (in which case you’d look to add Impatiens) or being angry or spiteful towards someone (in which case you’d look to add Holly.)
Understanding Bach flower remedies
What are Bach flower remedies?
Dr Edward Bach, an English homeopath and doctor, developed 38 natural essences to support people's emotions in the 1930s. He discovered that negative thoughts and feelings damaged our energy system and had a powerful impact on us emotionally. He discovered 38 flower essences that were able to resolve these conflicts in our subconscious; thus helping us to restore the damage to our energy system. Each individual flower remedy relates to a different negative emotion. This emotion has led your body to be out of balance. By taking the remedy, the body’s energy correct itself and comes back into balance, allowing the person to continue on their life path.
The flower remedy system is based on a holistic, complementary method that has been used for emotional healing since the 1930s. It is still utilised by millions of individuals all over the world who are looking for a simple technique to address their day-to-day issues and support their mental health.
