Every home should have a good selection of remedies on hand for use during these stressful times. I remember one morning when one of our children was in headless chicken mode (which can be recognised by behaviours indicating high-speed panic, get out of my way, there’s too-little-time!) Three of our other children and I were already in the car ready to leave for school, waiting for the headless chicken who was due to sit the first of her year-end exams. She suddenly burst out of the back door, flew into the car and slammed the door on her youngest brother’s finger! The scream was bone chilling and we all flew OUT of the car in instant panic!
So then we all rushed into the house to get help … Injury Rescue formula for the poor victim (includes Arnica and Hypericum for crushed finger nerves); a bandage and lots of sympathy of course; Grief, shock & trauma formula for the emotionally disturbed witnesses! And … before we finally got the show on the road, there was a huge scolding plus a very large dose of Argentum Nitricum for the headless chicken!
