My Personal Review

I originally purchased this at Sprouts when I was going through a traumatic event about a few months ago. I was desperately needing some immediate relief from the grief I was dealing with, and I would say I was crying daily at the time. One day, a good friend of mine who has Bipolar disorder suggested to check out this brand as it is safe and pretty effective. While I was at Sprouts, I saw different kinds of Bach flower essence, but this one stood out the most as it stated it helps lessen the impact of grief one is going through. That day, I purchased this one and also another one, which I will review in the different post later.

I tried this dropper as soon as I got in the car, and the effect I was looking for was not immediate. It took me a few minutes, but I noticed my senses and tension were calming down very slowly. It is nothing like how those Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications work. It is more gentle and subtle than that, but you will notice it because you start to feel more at peace. In my experience, it felt as though it took me out of “fight or flight” state I was in. I was no longer feeling like I was in the survival state, and I found myself being able to think more clearly and rationally. I continued to use it as needed daily.

I gave 4.5 out of 5 for this review because I honestly felt like this saved me that day. It was that relief I was looking for, and it did exactly what it said on the bottle. I also love that you can use it as needed and it is completely safe. When dealing with grief and trauma, I want to be present in life and not be sedated like a zombie. This product did just enough so I can deal with my grief on my own but with some support.


Pros and Cons


  • All natural
  • Safe to be used at work or even when driving
  • Effective yet gentle
  • Very affordable if you get it from Amazon — **I purchased mine at Sprouts and I had to pay so much more.
  • You can use it as needed


  • If you are looking for a strong sedative effect such as how Xanax works, this one is not for you.



If you are considering alternative medicine or holistic remedies, I highly recommend this product. I really like that this brand has been around for over 80 years and has a great reputation from its customers. There are a lot of holistic remedies out there, but I do trust this one for its efficacy.  There are other kinds for different emotional needs, and I will be sure to upload a review if I try a new one.  For those of you going through a traumatic event or grief, I suggest you give this one a try.  It will be like your little guardian angel holding your hand through your healing process.

  1. You know, I never considered ever using flower essences, but I see this and then I check out the reviews and apparently it’s truly a working remedy. I don’t have depression (I think?) but I go into some anxiety-filled states from time to time due to the kind of situations I endure, but I may need to seriously look into this if it’s that effective.

    1. Aljareaux,

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I’ve never heard of flower remedies until I came across this product either but I can honestly say that it really works. There are also other kinds of flower remedies that might work better for your need so I would recommend looking at different options if you are mainly dealing with anxiety. Maybe this one will work better for you 🙂

  2. This seems like a really good product. Thanks for the review.
    Are there any medical information I can read about it?
    Thanks, Flo

    1. Florin,

      I researched but I could only find indications saying that this flower/herb is believed to help lessen the impact of grief and trauma. If I come across a different and updated page with more medical information, I will definitely let you know.

  3. This product sounds amazing!
    I would like to get this for a friend of mine who is going through a rough time at work. She feels bullied and constantly stressed.

    Do you think this product would work for that? I know it is not grief, but she has a lot of negative emotions and sadness lately. Can’t wait to read your reply!

    1. Irma,

      I’m so sorry to hear about your friend. I think this dropper will be a good addition for her because she can use it whenever she needs during her break. I used to use it whenever I went for a bathroom break and it helped me tremendously. I hope this helps her as much as it helped me. Let me know if you have any more questions and thank you for stopping by 🙂
