Cherry Plum (Bach Flower Remedy) is one of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies.
Bach flower remedies are selected based on the emotions a person is experiencing at the particular point in time at which he or she uses the remedies.
Cherry plum may be appropriate when some or all of the following characteristics apply:
- overwhelming sense of despair
- fear of losing one's mind and/or of harming oneself or others
- sense of loss of control
This remedy is therefore used in cases of extreme distress, "panic attacks", and similar. It is also one of the five Bach Flower Remedies used in Bach 'Rescue Remedy' products, rescue remedy being the most popular and well-known Bach Flower Remedy of all.
Many books about Bach Flower Remedies suggest that most people can benefit from them at some times and/or during certain types of circumstances. The main question at any particular time is which of the remedies is appropriate for the specific person (or animal) at that time, remembering that the choice need not be of just one remedy. Although it is possible to use only one remedy at a time, a small group of remedies is often selected and used together.
