Here’s our top selection of flower remedies for parents to help you get through the summer holidays in one piece.


The Beech flower remedy is your go-to solution when you find yourself becoming overly critical or intolerant of your children's behaviours. Parenting during the summer holidays can test your patience as kids seem to be in an endless quest to push your buttons. Beech helps you develop a more understanding and empathetic attitude, allowing you to see things from their perspective and respond with compassion.

Cherry Plum

When the pressure builds up, and you feel like you're on the verge of losing control, the Cherry Plum flower remedy comes to the rescue. It's the remedy for those moments when you fear you might explode in frustration. Parenting can be overwhelming, especially when juggling multiple responsibilities, and Cherry Plum assists in restoring a sense of inner calm and emotional stability.


The Impatiens flower remedy is perfect for parents who are always on the go and find it challenging to slow down and be present with their children. It helps ease impatience and irritability, allowing you to enjoy the slow moments and be more understanding of your children's pace. Embracing this remedy can bring a sense of peace and appreciation for the little things in life.


Summer holidays often mean more time spent with the kids, which can lead to a feeling of overwhelm. Elm is the remedy for the super-parents who take on too much or are juggling work and parenting and may feel temporarily inadequate under the weight of their responsibilities. This flower essence restores your confidence and sense of capability, helping you navigate through the challenges of parenting during the summer break with a more relaxed demeanour.


As a parent, you may feel like you're an unyielding oak tree, strong and determined but perhaps a bit rigid. Oak flower remedy supports you in finding a balance between being steadfast and knowing when it's essential to take breaks and rest. It encourages you to be gentle with yourself while still being the pillar of support your children need during the summer adventures.


The Vine flower remedy addresses the tendency to become overly domineering or controlling as a parent. While it's natural to want the best for your children, the summer holidays can accentuate these traits. Vine helps you find a more flexible and democratic approach to parenting, allowing your children to explore and express themselves freely while providing guidance when needed.

Why Flower Remedies for Parents?

Parenting is a beautiful journey, but it can also be challenging, especially during the summer holidays when routines are disrupted, and energy levels are put to the test. Flower remedies offer a natural, safe and non-invasive way to support parents emotionally and mentally during this time.

These remedies are safe for both parents and children and can work in harmony with other forms of treatment or parenting strategies. They gently address specific emotional imbalances, helping parents stay centred, patient, and understanding. Incorporating flower remedies into your summer routine can promote a harmonious atmosphere at home and make the most of this precious time with your children.

How to Use Flower Remedies 

Bach flower drops are typically taken orally in liquid form. They can be taken directly under the tongue or diluted in a glass of water. Four drops, four times a day, is the minimum dose to experience the benefits. These remedies are easy to administer and can be seamlessly integrated into your daily routine.
