Stress relief in a tin - Trying out Rescue Pastilles!

I am a worrier....I always have been. I worry about things which don't need to be worried about as well as the normal every day things....I wouldn't say I have a stressful life but sometimes there are moments where it is all a little too much.

Yesterday Stu went to the shop to get some bread and then rang to ask if he had left his wallet on his desk....I couldn't find it. He said he could have sworn he'd picked it up. My mind was racing. We'd have to cancel his cards, order a new driving license and so on. What would happen if he dropped it in town. Would someone be using it now. Eek! I stressed but it gave me a good chance to try the Rescue Pastilles which I had been sent to review....He got home and found the wallet in the bathroom. Grr!

RESCUE Pastilles are a delicious way to keep stress at bay. They come in two flavours, Orange and Elderflower and Blackcurrant. Each pastille contains one dose of RESCUE Remedy. 

Rescue Remedy contains five flower essences: Rock Rose to alleviate terror and panic, Impatiens to mollify irritation and impatience, Clematis to combat inattentiveness, Star of Bethlehem to ease shock, and Cherry Plum to calm irrational thoughts.

I popped one into my mouth and sucked on it until it dissolved. I don't know if it was the fact I was focusing my mind on something else or the ingredients did what they were supposed to but it worked...I did feel calmer....It might just be a placebo effect but it is one I am going to be using in the future....

These are alcohol and sugar free and can be used by people of all ages. They would be great if you are travelling over the summer....For job interviews, driving tests or if you are a nervous driver and those every day stresses....There is a million situations that these could help with.

I can see me using these in September when the kids go back to school....Ellie is starting secondary school. I know she'll be fine but it's not going to stop me worrying....I also think they might come in very handy next year. Becky will be taking her GCSE's and although she is not worried at the moment things might change.....

The Rescue Pastilles come in a handy click shut tin which makes them ideal for travelling, to grab and go or to keep in your bag.... 

The only side effect that I can see is excessive consumption may have a laxative effect. I think being sensible and not taking them too often will be OK.

The Rescue Pastilles cost £5.15 per tin and are available from Boots, Holland & Barrett, independent pharmacies and health food stores as well as grocery stores nationwide.

I was sent the Rescue Pastilles free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
