You can take two bottles at a time without any issues.

If you take the drops directly on your tongue, I advise you to take 6 x 4 drops of every mix alternately. So first take mix A, then next time take mix B, then back to mix A and so on ….

You can also put 24 drops of each mix in two different bottles of water. You should drink from both of these bottles throughout the day. It’s recommended to alternate between drinking from the two bottles.

Your child should find another source of drink to quench their thirst.

There are different ways to give the drops. All of which work the same:

When you give the daily dose Bach flower in the drinking water, you have to make sure it drank all the drinking water by the end of the day.

 


How can I make sure they drink their water with drops during the day?

Putting the drops in the drinking water is just one way to give the Bach flowers. The problem here is that you’re not always sure they have drunk their water during the day. Because of this I advice rubbing the drops near the nose, that way they definitely get them in and you can spread the drops throughout the day.

Should I give the drops when they need it or throughout the day?

It is best to spread the drops throughout the day. When your pet has a difficult moment, you can always give it an extra dose, even shortly after each other.
