I am amazed how well Rescue Remedy products work!
I have used the liquid Rescue Remedy many times in the past, but these "candies" are much more convenient.
The best test I've given them to date: facing several mornings in the dentist chair. It still wasn't fun or painless but I was a LOT calmer than usual. 😄
For me, the best time to take these is about an hour before expecting to need them. The effect lasts about 5-6 hours usually. A nice calm, relaxed feeling that is hard to describe but unmistakably there. Not like taking drugs, ie: Valium or similar relaxants, and a lot safer too as they are completely natural and drug-free.
These pastilles come in several flavors, the Black Current is my favorite.
The ingredient list is good but they do contain sorbitol as a sweetener. It would be nice to see an even better choice for sweetener (fruit juice?) but not a big concern for me, in this small amount.
Mr. Cheddar also uses Rescue Remedy in liquid form, a type that is specifically formulated for pets.
And that to me is another real "test" of the efficiency of these products.
Mr. Cheddar is MUCH calmer, when travelling etc, after a few drops of Rescue Remedy, which I put on some treats and he happily gobbles up.
We were really concerned about how he would fare on planes, ferries etc, with our recent travels, but he did great. I am so grateful to have had RR to help. He does tend to be quite a "nervous Nelly" when it comes to loud noises, etc...and as we all know, airports. large ferries and planes are certainly all in that category!!
I don't know how homeopathic remedies work but based on my experience with Rescue Remedy products, I'm a believer! 😀
You can read a lot more about all types of Rescue Remedy including more testimonials, at the Rescue Remedy site. Their customer service staff were most helpful when I had questions about using RR for Mr. Cheddar, I appreciate that too.
Overall rating for these products: Very Good. 4 out of 5
