9 Essences to Help You Stay Calm & Balanced

A few thoughts on the current Coronavirus situation – our world has been in a particularly unsettled, chaotic state for some time now, but despite this everyday life has continued to function with a reasonable degree of ‘normality’ for most people. However, this has now changed with the unexpected arrival of the coronavirus, a pandemic which is gradually turning everything upside down and rocking the foundations of everyday lives all around the world.

Internal Alarm Bells Go Off When We Feel Threatened

Changes on this scale are not something that humans in general respond to particularly well. Internal alarm bells go off when we see our everyday security being threatened by something apparently outside of our control. Fear, panic and anxiety follow, emotional responses that can be so strong they prevent us from seeing the reality of a situation.

Collective Fear Spreads Like a Virus

Collective fear works rather like a virus, in that it spreads fast and is not easy to contain once it gets going. It is a seductive energy that can pull you in very quickly and make it much more difficult to know what is best for you in any given situation.

This is because the vibration of fear is an imprint stored in both our personal emotional body and within the emotional body of the Earth. Take a moment to reflect upon the number of events in human history that have left an imprint of fear down the ages and you will see that memories of plague, famine, wars, sieges and massive earth changes are all archived experiences just waiting to be triggered off by anything that carries a similar vibration.

When this happens, we can find ourselves suddenly engulfed in fear and not be able to recognise that what we are feeling is not all about what is happening now. Simply keeping this in mind will make it easier to respond to the current situation in a proportionate way.

How To Stay Calm When Your Fear is Triggered

One of the most important things we can do for ourselves and for those around us right now is to stay calm and generate an atmosphere of balance and harmony. Holding the positive vibrations of balance and harmony with focus and intention will make a very big difference as we go through the next few weeks and months. Not only do these energies impact your own well-being, they also create a positive vibrational field that others can align with.

What is going on now is all part of the transformational process that we are going through as we create a new reality based in love rather than fear. Taking time out to breathe with awareness, ground and connect with yourself will greatly help you move through the challenges and opportunities of this time with ease and grace.

9 Essences To Transform Fear

Nine Essences

Vibrational essences are wonderful tools for transforming difficult emotional states into more beneficial states of well-being, such as positivity, calmness and balance.

Here are our recommendations for essences that particularly help dissolve the vibrations of fear that the coronavirus is bringing to the surface for many of us.

For very acute states, start with Bach Flower Remedies which are particularly helpful in the current climate because they quickly bring us back into balance and can be taken every 10 minutes when emotions are very strong.

Revival Remedy

Revival Remedy is the Bach Flower Remedy combination for emergency situations. It is particularly helpful to take when you are feeling panicky, fearful or traumatised by an unexpected or emotionally stressful event. Revival Remedy is available in both dropper bottles and spray bottles as well as in a cream base with added Crab Apple and Pine. Revival Remedy


Mimulus is for when you feel fearful or worried about your own health and safety, or are feeling scared of losing your income, home or any other everyday survival fears. Mimulus

Red Chestnut

Red Chestnut brings peace when you feel fearful about the safety of other people, imagining that the worst is going to happen to your loved ones. Red Chestnut

White Chestnut Flowers

White Chestnut

White Chestnut brings tranquility and inner stillness when your mind is over-active, and you can’t switch off from busy, unproductive thoughts. White Chestnut

Crab Apple

Crab Apple is the essence for cleansing and purification. It can be taken internally or used externally in the bath or added to household cleaning products. Crab apple helps you to see things in perspective, particularly if you are someone who can be fussy, easily upset, get obsessive over details or make mountains out of molehills. Crab Apple

An Opportunity to Clear Deeply Rooted Fears

While the Bach Flower Remedies will help to support you with acute fears that are on the surface, we offer other essences which work on a deeper level to transform fear.

For many people, the coronavirus outbreak is bringing ancient imprints of fears to the surface so they can be released. If you feel that the fear you are experiencing is very deeply rooted then either Pink Rose, Inner Calm, Base Chakra or the Strength & Courage Spray can be taken alongside your Bach Flower Remedies to help dissolve some of the old archived fear that has been triggered off.

Pink Rose Flower

Pink Rose

Pink Rose is one of the Karmic essences and is helpful when you feel you cannot get to the root of your fears. It will help to unlock old fears and trauma so that the crystallised energy that has collected around these issues can be dissolved. Pink Rose

Inner Calm

Inner Calm promotes a greater sense of security and wellbeing by transforming deeply buried unconscious traumas that are the the source of everyday fears until they are brought into awareness to be transformed. This essence transforms deeply rooted feelings of fear, worry and insecurity and helps you to feel that you have strong secure foundations. Inner Calm

Strength & Courage Spray

Strength & Courage Spray works very quickly to dissolve and transform the vibrations of fear in your own energy field and in your environment, helping you to find your own innate strength and courage again. Strength & Courage Spray

Base Chakra

Base Chakra Survival fears are often also stored in the base chakra, seriously impacting its ability to function optimally. If you are feeling ungrounded and disconnected from yourself right now, are experiencing severe safety and survival fears, or feel disorientated and dis-organized then a Base Chakra combination will help you to function better in the everyday world. Base Chakra

Dealing With Fear

Dealing with strong fear is not a comfortable experience and when we are in the grip of its strong vibration it can be all too easy to get things out of proportion.  It helps to keep in mind that fear, like any other difficult emotion, is just an energy that requires your awareness and attention so that it can be dissolved. Once you have done this, the next time the trigger comes around you will find it much easier to stay detached, calm and balanced.

Please Note – Using vibrational essences does not in any way replace medical treatment.
