Celebrate Safely this Independence Day!

Wishing you a happy and safe Independence Day, celebrating with people you care for. While you're at it, send up some thanks that we do still  have Independence. Our freedom is something to be cherished.

Meanwhile, if you live where you can buy and use your own fireworks, please be careful! Summer is no time to have fire dropping to the ground.

Keep your garden hoses out, and be alert - just in case a neighbor gets silly.

Oh, and please remember to keep your pets indoors. Animal rescues get more lost pet calls on the 5th of July than any other time of year. Some dogs and cats are so terrified of fireworks, gunfire, and thunderstorms that they just start to run, and don't stop. Sometimes they run so hard and so far that they can't find their way home again.

Even when you're keeping them inside, there's no sense in allowing them to suffer from their fear. Especially not when Feel Bach! can help.

If you have our "Thunder Storms" formula, begin giving it in the morning, or even the previous day. If you don't have any, use Feel5ive to help ease the stress your pets may experience this 4th of July.

Best wishes for joy and safety - from the whole Feel Bach! team.

How Dr. Bach's Remedies can help you succeed in business

Although the economy seems to be improving slightly, we still have a long way to go. That means its "smart business" to promote your products and services as economically as possible.
The Internet is one way – especially if you have the ability to create your own website, post to your blog regularly, and navigate the social media sites
If you have a local business, another way to promote yourself is to give talks to groups who might be interested in the product or service you have to offer. Chambers of Commerce and service groups always want speakers for their meetings – and that could be you. 

You might simply present your service and explain why it is superior. Or, you might give a "how-to" talk about something related to your services – giving helpful instruction will automatically position you as an expert.

The second beauty of using public speaking to promote your business is that most of your competitors will not do it. So when you do it, you become "the" expert. It's similar to being the person who "wrote the book" on your subject.

BUT… Yes, I know. Public speaking is scary! You're afraid to stand up in front of a group and speak while you're the focus of attention.

The solution to that fear could lie in a little bottle from Feel Bach! labeled "Feel5ive." This is the flower essence blend that calms the nerves and lets you get through stressful situations without falling apart. 

I recommend starting the day before the event, with 4 drops in the afternoon and 4 more before bed. Then in the morning, take 4 more. If you aren't scheduled to speak until evening, do it again shortly after lunch. A few minutes before the talk, take 4 more.

You'll not only sail through the talk, you'll probably enjoy it and be enthused over the idea of doing it again.

Feel5ive for Horses? I think I'll try it!

In 8 days, our property will become home to a horse who has been living alone with very little human contact for about the last 9 years. That's when "his person" passed away. The people he's with feed him, and the children hand him a carrot now and then, but they don't ride him. They're actually a bit afraid of horses.

 He's friendly and seems gentle, but when I led him out of his enclosure he did get nervous.

 How will he feel about being plunked down in a new home with a human he's only met once? How will he feel about being asked to carry a saddle again? What will he think if a deer or a moose wanders by?

When I know my dogs are likely to be upset about something I put a few drops of Feel5ive,
"Thunderstorms," or "Home Alone" in their water dish.

How many drops of Feel5ive should I add to a 50 gallon watering tank? Perhaps a couple of droppers-full?

I don't know, but I'm going to try it. I believe it will help him adjust to his new home and his new human. And the first few times I work on the two of us getting acquainted, I think I'll take a few drops myself.

Horses DO know when you're nervous, and my being nervous won't help him at all.

When You've Lost a Loved One, turn to Dr. Bach

Losing a loved one - be they human or a beloved pet - brings on a range of negative emotions that can simply be overwhelming.

Your emotions run from loneliness to rage, fear, depression, and helplessness. In addition, you have to deal with an unwanted change in your life.

It may feel like life is not worth living - and as if you'll never experience another happy moment. But still, you know you must cope. If not for yourself, for others who share your life.

Most of us are not allowed to withdraw - or to cry all day every day. We have to get on with our responsibilities, and those responsibilities include letting others enjoy life, even when we're desperately unhappy.

No remedy can bring back a loved one, and no remedy can make you forget them. But Dr. Bach's remedies can make it easier to get through the day - and to eventually see some sunshine coming back into your life.

If you're suffering from the loss of a loved one, visit FeelBach! and take the questionnaire. Really examine your own emotions as you answer the questions and answer as honestly and completely as you can. The result will be a formula that helps you work through the grief more easily, so you can think about and talk about your loved one with joy in remembrance.

Remember that the children in your life are probably experiencing emotions similar to yours, so help them fill out the children's questionnaire as well.

Those who love you want you to find peace - so do it for them.
