Does Rescue Remedy Actually Work?

Yes & No.
There is no soul that can categorically tell you that Rescue Remedy does work. It is subjective dependent on you.
Ultimately all that you need is confidence and to leave the self doubt behind. Rescue Remedy can give you that placebo effect (similarly to Ron Weasley when he drinks the Luck Serum in Harry Potter). You are elated on the feeling of false confidence and that in itself is enough to bolster your emotions and habits.
I took Rescue Remedy before my driving test and although I don't think it was the Rescue Remedy that did it, I was unbelievably calm and passed first time. 
I believe Rescue Remedy enhances those emotions you already feel. If you are confident it can only boost that. Similarly, if you are so full of self doubt then not even Rescue Remedy can pull you away from this, it may help, but it won't be the defining moment in a downward spiral.


  1. Well done on passing your driving test! I can't wait to do mine, I'll definitely be on the rescue remedy! I've used it a few times and it definitely does make me feel more in control of my anxiety, like you said it could just be a placebo effect but even if it is, it does good things! xx

  2. i don't think i would've passed my driving test first time without this stuff! i still overdose on it to this day whenever i'm feeling nervous. even if it is just a placebo, it does help. ps. congrats on passing ;) xx

  3. I always use this - i did a review on it on my blog a few weeks back and i said the exact same thing - not sure if its a mind-game but it seems to work for me! Aslong as i catch the nervousness in time it seems to do something to calm me down - i dont know if its the taste or what - but it seems to work. I keep it by my bedside too :) xx

  4. I've never heard of this product before!! HOW?! it sounds so good. I'm the same when it comes to sleep, it can take me hours to get to sleep sometimes. I think I'll have to check this out :) xxxx


  5. I always use this for things where I'm going to be nervous like exams, and I used it for my driving test too! I also passed :)I have no idea if it actually makes me more calm, or if it's a placebo effect but I wouldn't be without it, it always makes me feel better! xx

  6. Well done for passing your driving test :)
    I have so many problems with my sleep and have used so many different things (from valium to kalms pills, herbal tea,) it's only got worse but i've never even heard of this so i might give it a bash, can't hurt can it? :) i'm glad it helped you, in my opinion their is nothing worse than not being able to sleep. It's just such a pain. And that's what i'm going to try and do now, after two night of zero sleep ^_^ wish me luck! x

  7. I think it works well :) I also drink camomile tea which is amazing :)

    i have never used Rescue remedy, but few minths ago i got myself relicalm tablets and i can say they work wonders.
    gave some to my friend who was getting married last month, she had been crying the whole week prior to the wedding and not sleeping well because of nerves but after taking the tablest she was a happy chappy and still is. lol

  9. My sister used this before her final driving test too incidentally! Haha. Took her 4 times :P

  11. My grandma used to give me "calming pills." They didn't work. But hey, congrats on passing your driver's test.

  12. I haven't used this particular one before, i've used the spray form, and I have to say it has seemed to calm me down. I do think that some of it has to do with the mind, when you know there is something there that can help you relax, you naturally start to relax anyway. But thats like anything. I suffer from anxiety, so its a great little thing to have in my bag if i feel a little stressed, hehe. Leah at Un arc-en Vintage
