Probably the most popular of all the Bach Flower Remedies. Made up of flower extracts of Rock Rose, Clematis, Star of Bethlehem, and Cherry Plum it is supposed to have a calming influence. It can be found at most health food stores and I find that it is great for reducing stress, tension and anxiety especially before any kind of test or presentation.

Then again, maybe it's all just a placebo effect!

The formula known today as Rescue Remedy was originally used by women in Victorian England for stress relief (it is rumored that Cate Blanchett used it at the Oscars when she was up for Best Actress). However, it is now often applied to dogs. The formula can be pipetted into the dog's mouth (Rescue Remedy can be bought for dogs in a bottle that comes with the proper tools for this) and allow the dog to relax. The degree of relaxation is proportional to the amount of Remedy given, and Rescue Remedy is safe even in large amounts (i.e. overdose is very unlikely); however success is also dependent on the individual dog, as well its breed.
