Here in the UK, the heat is now too hot to handle. I don’t know about you, but it certainly is for me. I can’t cope with intense heat. I know loads of you love the summer sun, but there are just as many of us who can’t cope with intense heat.

Bach Flower Remedies help me deal with the intense heat!

Too hot to handle

So, how are you managing with the heat?

To find the right remedies to help you, first you have to identify how the heat makes you feel.

This is how I feel when the heat is too hot for me to handle. Perhaps you feel like this too?

  • Feel ‘spaced out’ and can’t concentrate.
  • Grumpy and irritable – my nerves seem frayed at the edges.
  • Absolutly absolutely exhausted – I must lie down! 

Rescue Remedy

This amazing remedy is a combination of 5 remedies, 2 of them: Clematis and Impatiens will help you cope with the heat.


The beautiful white flowers of Clematis helps with the ‘spaced out’ feeling that comes when we’re overheated and feeling faint. You know that floppy feeling when you can’t get your mind to focus. It’s not that you’re lying on the sofa, ideally day dreaming. No…Your mind won’t work!

Clematis will help to ground you – This is in Rescue Remedy


The heat seems to make us snappy and  irritable. We get and impatient with everyone about everything – This is in Rescue Remedy


The tall and majestic Beech is brilliant. It’s for when the heat is intolerable and you to become intolerant and critical of others.  (I know this is unusual for you, but the heat certainly does seems to affect our tolerance levels).


The gnarled and tired Olive tree gives us the remedy for physical fatigue. Take it when you’re feeling drained and exhausted. Olive will restore some of your energy.


Walnut is known as the ‘link breaker’ – so it;s good for when we move from one situation to another.
But, Bach put Walnut into the Group of Remedies who are ‘extremely acceptible to outside influences’…

So, right now, I’m extremely susceptible to the ‘outside influence’ of the heat – so I add it to my ‘Heat Mix’.

Please Remember

When you take the appropriate remedy for your feelings, the Bach Flower Remedies do work. But remember they work subtly and gently, and you might not realise you’re feeling better, until you notice that you’re doing more, or not needing to lie down for so long.


(The Bach Flower Remedies brand of my choice is Healing Herbs and their ‘Rescue Remedy’ is called 5 Flower  – it’s made of a combination of 5 flowers).

Into a glass of water, put 2 drops of each of the remedies: Rescue/5 Flower, Beech, Olive and Walnut, and sip through out the day.  If you’re travelling, put your chosen remedies into a 500ml bottle of mineral water, but because there is more water in the bottle than a glass, this time put 3-4 drops of each of the remedies into the bottle and sip frequently.

This is your remedy-water, not your thirst water. Remember to drink more water in this hot weather, that you would do usual.

This mix helps me get through the heat of the day, so I hope it’ll help you too.

  • Interesting post, Rose. I have never thought of using Bach Flower Remedies for managing the intense heat of summer. Thanks for sharing this & opening my mind to the possibilities of these wonderful remedies.

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Vimala. Thank you for your comment. It does seem strange to take the Bach remedies just because the weather’s hot. But they heal and soothe emotions, and so I identified how the heat made me feel, and took the remedies. It’s amazing – but it works and will help you deal with the heat better.
      Keep well. Rose.



    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Calani. Good to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words about the blogs.
      Hope the remedies help you cope with this hot weather! They do me.
      Take care and be safe. Rose.

  • Hi Rose,
    Can you share some remedies for grief. If you have lost a parent and cant let go. What would be a good combination? thank you

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Meenu. Thank you for leaving a comment. It is a very sad think indeed to loose your one of your parents. It’s a sad time.
      I wrote a blog about some remedies that could help with a broken heart. Have a read here and see which remedies would suit you best.


      I know you’ll find something there to help you.
      Love Rose

  • Darlene Hicklen says:

    Hi Rose,
    Darlene, Charlotte NC.
    Thanks for this info. I never considered taking the remedies to combat high temperatures. Like you, I don’t function well in the heat at all. It can be exhausting. Hate it. The temperatures here in the States are high as well. Close to 100°Fahrenheit on some days. I will try the remedies you suggested here. Thanks a bunches. Stay cool!

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hi Darelene. Thank you for leaving your comment.
      I’m glad I showed you a different aspect of the remedies. But the remedies don’t help with the heat – they help you deal with how you deal with heay! (Just a small change of focus ::)

      love Rose

      • Rose Todd says:

        Hello Darlene.
        Sorry to hear that you’re auffering high temperatures too. Your temperatures are higher than ours. I cn’t cope. I hope you’ve got air condition.
        The Bach Flower Remedies deal with emotions – so they can helo us deal with heat too.
        Thank you for leaving the comment. Love Rose

  • Darlene Hicklen says:

    I understand, it’s how the heat makes me feel. I should have been clear in my comment. Thanks for pointing that out.

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hi again Darlene. Yes, I realised you knew, (It was in case others read the comments.
      I hoep the remedies help. Love Rose

  • Another very informative blog thank you Rose. Temperatures here are also higher than normal for June so your advice is very welcome

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hi Judith. Thank you. I’m glad you liked it. summer is lovely – but for some IT does get too hot.
      Work out how you feel in the heat, and check to see if any of the remedies I suggested will help you. Take care. Rose

  • Sue Cooke says:

    Fantastic information thank you Rose. I tend to forget the affects hot weather can have on our mental/emotional state. Thank you as always for the reminder of how the remedies can help us cope in these situations x x

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Sue. Thank you for your lovely comment. A few people have written saying then hadn’t thought of using remedies to help them deal with the heat. But if we use them to deal with grief or anger – we can use them to help us through the heat too. 🙂 I found them invaluable when I lived in Dubai.
      I hope they help you – and your clients too. Rose

    • Rose Todd says:

      HI Sue. Thank you for your Comment. I thought I’d answered you, but it seems I didn’t. Sorry.
      We take the remedies when our experiences upset us – when something outside of ourselves upsets us. And yet, we don’t think to take the remedies when extreme weather – or allegies to ‘nature’ upset us.
      I hope they help, if you need them!) Love Rose

  • Joan Breit says:

    I live in Kansas, USA. We have been having temps in the upper 90’s. Thank you so much for the the Bach remedies which help me through these challenging times.

    • Rose Todd says:

    I had beech in mind for sure but didn’t think about the remedies you suggested. Thank you!

    • Rose Todd says:

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Rosalind.
      It’s a pleasure. When I realised that if my feelings were involved, then I can use the remedies to help me through every unwanted experience, it radically changed how I vew them.
      If the remedy mix is not quite right for you, think about what’s missing, and make up a different Mix.
      I hope the remedies help you with Summer.

  • Barbara T says:

    Thank you Rose! This was extremely helpful. In Chicago the humidity can get insufferable and makes me really irritable! How wonderful to know there is gentle relief with the flower remedies. The weather has really become crazy and unpredictable. I can’t imagine hot muggy days in the UK!? Thanks again for your much trusted guidance.

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Barbara. Thank you for getting in touch. I’m glad you enjoyed the ‘Hot’ blog and I hope you find the remedy suggestions helpful.
      I agree. The heat is bad enough b.ut the humidity is a really ‘killer’. I can’t cope with the humitied. I wouldn’t have thought that Chicago would be humid!
      I hope you find the remedies helpful, if you need to use them>
      Take care. Rose
