Actually, Bach flower remedies aren’t homeopathic. Unlike homeopathic remedies, they contain an actual diluted herbal extract in alcohol (the alcohol is there as a preservative). Rescue remedy has received some rave reviews from people trying to calm their nerves before a dental appointment (and in the days or weeks leading up to the first appointment) – so why not give it a try? You’ve got nothing to lose, as there are no side effects. It’s the only form of oral sedation which will allow you to drive to and from your appointment on your own.
