Every once in a while, there comes a magical moment when I stumble upon a product so fabulous that it becomes absolutely necessary to shout it’s name from the rooftops…I guess my blog page will have to suffice in this particular instance…
Bach’s Rescue Cream is the magical product I am referring to and it truly seems to work like magic when it comes to healing the skin. As I’ve mentioned before, after-seizure first aid is part of the whole epileptic lifestyle. An injury may not occur after EVERY seizure, but I like to be prepared for the unexpected especially when the unexpected translates to a great big injury to my face. When the injury is front and center, the world does notice. They may try to look away quickly as if they didn’t see the injury and they may even act like the moment isn’t totally awkward, but let’s be honest…I saw that they saw, I also feel uncomfortable, and I wish with all of my heart that it would just disappear with the snap of my fingers.
Well, I’m no fairy godmother but I do have a product recommendation for you that works so quickly it truly seems magical. On February 6, 2020, I had a Grand Mal seizure. It was no different than any other Grand Mal I’ve had over my past 12 years with epilepsy. However, in this particular instance my fingernail caught my upper left cheek and left quite a deep scrape. Here is a photo of the actual injury, the day after it occurred…
As you can see, this was the type of injury that prevented me from going out in public. There was no way I could put my life on pause and wait for it to heal. Honestly, who knows how long that would take? I really wasn’t enjoying the looks I received when I did go out so I decided to follow an age old piece of advice…
“Mother knows best.”
My mom has been using Bach’s Rescue Cream as a topical ointment for a broad range of skincare needs from liver spots to wrinkles to the occasional pimple for years! She swears by it’s healing properties so I decided to give it a try for myself. Since I’m writing an entire article about the product it obviously did the job I was hoping and praying for, but I wanted to give you visual evidence of the healing process so that you can see how magical this cream truly is! Here is a photo of me two months after using Bach’s Rescue Cream on my scrape every day…
*Side Note: Due to the scrape being an open wound, I chose not to put any makeup on that spot until it completely healed. So, in the first photo as well as this second photo above, although I have makeup on other parts of my face there is no makeup masking the wound from the camera.
The unique healing properties lie within Dr. Bach’s mixture of six flower essential oils including Crab Apple (Malus pumila), Rock Rose (Helianthemum nummularium), Clematis (Clematis vitalba), Impatiens (Impatiens glandulifera), Cherry Plum (Prunus cerasifera), and Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum).
Bach’s incredible Rescue Remedy formula is available in a multitude of forms including drops, spray, topical cream (the product mentioned above), and many more. You can find products for adults, kids and pets by visiting their website.
The craziness of life has prevented me from sharing this product until now, but here we are a year later and I still love this stuff! Scroll down to see a photo of my healing progress after an entire year…
I don’t know if there will ever come a day when I wake up feeling completely prepared to handle my condition of Catamenial Epilepsy, it is nothing if not eventful! But I can say that products like Bach’s Rescue Cream make me feel capable of getting out of bed and tackling the day ahead of me. It is yet another tool in my arsenal that gets me one step closer to total body healing. I hope that this product recommendation will do the same for each and every one of my readers.
