Using the Bach Flower Remedies for Exams

Remedies for exam stressIt’s nearly summertime… which must mean it’s time for students to be inside studying frantically for A-Levels and university exams while the sun shines on everybody else.

This can be such a stressful time of year for students.  It’s so easy not to look after yourself when you are frantically studying and revising, and a recent chat with a client studying at university reminded me of how brilliant the Bach Flower Remedies are for supporting you through all of those stressful feelings as you battle through to the end.   There are remedies that help you with states of worry or fear, or even extreme panic.  The below list is a highlight of the remedies that I hope might help anyone struggling through the next few weeks.  You can take them individually if a particular remedy resonates with you, or you can make up a blend of remedies (up to 6 in a blend).

Flower Remedies that may help include:

  • Agrimony: if you feel restless at night with churning thoughts, this is also the remedy if you feel you are the kind of person who might want to drink too much or take drugs when you are under stress in order to dull the feelings and escape.
  • Cerato: the remedy for someone who lacks confidence in their own judgement or perhaps even distrusts their own convictions/abilities.  Useful in an exam if you are doubting your knowledge even though you know you have studied enough for it. If you find yourself seeking too much advice and confirmation from others this could also be useful.
  • Cherry Plum: if you are the person who gets severe exam panic! It’s for that near hysteria feeling pre exam, helps you to return to sanity and gives calm, quiet courage.
  • Elm: for if you suddenly feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of it all.  Could be a good one if your university place is riding on your A-level results, or for those 3rd year University finals.
  • Larch: Take this if you feel like you have no self confidence, really useful before exams. Keeps you feeling capable; not fearful but determined.
  • Mimulus: The remedy for fear of known things – gives quiet courage to face trials ahead.
  • Oak: For when you are plodding on from overwork and tiredness. Brings strength when you feel under great strain.
  • Pine: Are you being over-conscientious with your studying? Pine is usually a good remedy for those who are never content with their achievements and over work themselves.
  • Vervain: for tenseness/hyperanxiety if you are pushing yourself too hard and causing yourself stress headaches.
  • White chestnut: if you find your mind ends up with thoughts whirring round and round, particularly at night causing sleep problems before exams.

I wish you all the best of luck, remember to take a break to breath and relax.
