REMEDIES ON THE DAY OF THE EXAM

Relaxing Essence
Relaxing Essence is helpful when people are living with a lot of daily fear based on the various uncertainties of life, anxiety attacks and worries, which cause a lot of tension. As Relaxing Essence is designed to combat tension it can be a good choice for women dealing with female problems.

Vitality Essence
**great for the afternoon exam
Vitality Essence, taken regularly, is an excellent choice to alleviate tiredness caused by long term stress, illness or whilst convalescing. However, a few drops in a glass of water can be taken as a short term lift if you feel tired and still have an evening's activity to get through. Do not, however, use this as a substitute for regular sleep and, if the fatigue continues, consult the doctor. Take as general boost, at the beginning or end of winter, or if just feeling sluggish.

***Flower Essences have no contraindications or side effects so are ideal to take during study.  A few drops should be added to a little water or taken directly under the tongue.
