I haven't actually done it

but how wrong would it be?

we are all grumpy and stressed and out of sorts

It probably has more of a 'memory' of chlorine or urine than herbs grin

They used to put gin in babies' bottles- worked a treat: go for it!

Go for it. It would be an interesting experiment.
It is all hocus pocus IMO but would be interested in your anecdotal evidence smile

PMSL at this thread

The Rescue cream is definitely worth using.... even if sceptics won't go for the drops. Nothing stops a wasp sting from swelling up as fast as RC. We use the drops for weepy kids.

I have been almost drinking the stuff recently! But I do sometimes wonder whether the calming effects are just me being a lightweight with the brandy!

we love rescue remedy in this house from babes in arms to dog to granny.

i have the spray bottle so it is easier to administer. if the dog sees someone getting any he comes over and sits down and gives paw.

lol you do realise about 10 people are going to jump on you now for saying that grin

Thunderduck Fri 28-Aug-09 20:14:01

LMAO@memory of herbs.grin

Tidey Fri 28-Aug-09 20:13:20

It has the memory of some herbs in it.

My HV suggested we give it ot dd2 when she was about 18 months, at bed time.

It was when holding in her in an almost head lock in order to get her to take it that I realsied the irony grin

Thunderduck Fri 28-Aug-09 20:07:25

Source of that information.Rescue Remedy. That says it all.

it doesn't work anyway
it's all in yer head that it works grin
it's a marketing con

Morloth Fri 28-Aug-09 19:52:02

Certainly tastes like brandy. Just pour yourself a stiff brandy and put them all to bed.

Grandhighpoohba Fri 28-Aug-09 19:36:50

Would be cheaper to add 5 drops of vodka and say a little spell... Will have the same effect grin

RedLentil Fri 28-Aug-09 18:58:41

My friend, in a moment of desperation, tried it on her dog.

He bumped the bottle as she was adding a few drops ...

He was one seriously chilled pooch. grin

Thunderduck Fri 28-Aug-09 18:56:13

I could probably extract more clematis from a gnat than I could from a bottle of Rescue Remedy.

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 18:55:26

And if it doesn't work, you can move on to Medised like a normal person.

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 18:53:05

Seriously though, go for it. Definitely not classed as drugging, and if it works then hurrah!

SpawnChorus Fri 28-Aug-09 18:52:05

What, like "magic"

[snigger]

wink

Thunderduck Fri 28-Aug-09 18:43:03

It's homeopathic. It is just water and brandy.

GreensleevesFlouncedLikeAKnob Fri 28-Aug-09 18:42:34

it is NOT just water and brandy

it contains Other Things [defensive]

Thunderduck Fri 28-Aug-09 18:41:20

Drugging them? It's just water and brandy, so you'd be giving them some alcohol but not very much.

shootfromthehip Fri 28-Aug-09 18:39:04

That's a hysterical idea- let me know if it works and I'll pop to the chemist in the morning wink
