Saying Farewell with the Bach Flowers

Recently we had to make the very upsetting decision to have our dog ‘put to sleep’ due to medical issues. Needless to say it was a very sad day to have to say farewell to our darling dog, Harry who was 15 years old.

In preparation for his farewell I made up a mini altar in our living room. It consisted of hand painted bottles by my daughter, of Star of Bethlehem and Clematis. Plus a candle holder, a gift from our son, and a guardian angel, a gift from a dear friend. To add a splash of colour I added some artificial pink roses and some daffodils. Close at hand was some Rescue Spray, Rescue Cream & Pastilles.

I also made up a farewell mix of remedies, and hoped that it helped him have a peaceful send off.

The remedies in the mix were:
Rescue Remedy (calmness), Star of Bethlehem (shock/trauma), Crab Apple (cleanse the mind), Walnut (protection from outside influences), Cherry Plum (calm/composure), Elm (overwhelmed), and Red Chestnut (concern for loved ones).

Harry will always have a special place in our hearts. This Fall we plan to have a family memorial for him and plant a flowering shrub in his memory.
