The holiday season can be very stressful. When I’m running around a mile a minute, ready to tear my hair out, I grab a Rescue Remedy product to help me calm down. Our pets know when we’re stressed and can get stressed themselves (see our Vet 101 post on cats and stress and our post on Rescue Remedy). Bach’s Rescue Remedy is a safe and natural remedy made from homeopathic flower essences designed to relieve stress. It’s been around since the 1930s, benefiting generations of people and their pets.
Usually I use the spray or dropper bottle but the nice folks at Rescue Remedy sent me a selection of products including some I haven’t tried like the Rescue Remedy Pastilles The tasty, black currant flavored pastilles are alcohol and sugar-free and safe for kids but NOT meant for pets. The handy tin is perfect to keep in your purse, car or desk for stressful situations. I confess on a crazy busy day, found them so yummy I nibbled half the tin. They helped but I’d advise less is more next time.
The dreamy sounding, non-habit forming. Sleep Melts are tiny gel caps that melt on your tongue. I’m a naturally, intense Type A personality who has trouble falling asleep and found I needed more than one Sleep Melts to feel the effect. It won’t knock you out like a sleeping pill but it helps to calm and stop the mind from going in circles.
For pets, RESCUE Remedy® Pet is alcohol-free and safe. Simply add 4 drops to you cat’s water bowl or on a treat. A few drops can also be rubbed onto your pet’s ear, nose or paw.
