Help For Exhaustion, Poor Sleep And Adrenal Fatigue:

by Carole Bourne

It is safe for me to care for myself”  Louise Hay

Many years ago I studied the healing properties of Australian Bush Flower Essences with the founder, naturopath Ian White.  If you are not sure what Australian Bush Flower essences are just think of them as the Australian equivalent of Rescue Remedy or Bach Flower Essences which I’m guessing you’ve used or seen at your local chemist or health food store before.  Both are excellent.

Unwind-essence-225x300For the past 10 years I’ve continually been impressed with how Australian Bush Flowers essences have helped my family and friends.

They’ve benefited my three boys enormously with study, stress, nightmares and big boy crashes.

Last year, I created a special blend of  Australian Bush Flower essences called “Unwind” for myself (and youngest son) as I tend to  have a “go, go, go” then crash type energy.  7 drops under my tongue morning and night helps me slow down, release fatigue, re-balance my adrenals and sleep better.

A few months back I started making the Unwind Essence for my retreats.

I then made some up to sell to readers and the feedback has been fabulous.  In fact 85% who bought the “Unwind” essence purchased another bottle 3 to 4 weeks later.  Now you’ve got to admit that’s a great sign.  I was thrilled.

“Improved sleep, and feeling more settled or stiller on the inside were the two most common pieces of feedback I received”.

So, it is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I announce I am making the  ”Unwind Essence” available to you.

In case you were wondering,  you certainly don’t need adrenal fatigue to take the essence. It’s for anyone (young or old – I give it too my youngest son)  who feels exhausted, low in energy, a mind that doesn’t switch off easily, trouble sleeping, can’t sit still or simply feel stressed by daily life.

Daily dosage:

7 drops of the Unwind essence, under the tongue, twice a day is all you need.   One bottle usually lasts around 2 weeks.

I recommend taking a break for one week before starting another bottle – trust your own intuition on that one.

Its also a good idea to store away from electrical appliances.

What’s inside a bottle of Unwind Essence:

Comes in a 15ml bottle with dropper.

Purified water, brandy, love, lots and lots of love and 6 flower essencesfollowing is a descriptions of their emotional and physical healing properties.

1. Dog Rose – Learning to say “no”. Belief in self.

2. Macrocarpa – An essential essence if you feel drained, exhausted and worn out.  Specifically for the adrenal glands.

3. Bottlebrush - Great for breaking bad habits, letting go and accepting change.  Brings serenity, calm and ability to move on and live a healthier more balanced life style.

4. Boronia - Ideal for obsessive thoughts and broken hearted (emotional exhaustion) – Leads to clarity and focus.

5. Black eyed susan – The stress essence, excess striving, don’t know when to stop.  Perfect if you have an inability to turn inwards and be still.  Encourages slowing down and inner peace.

6. Crowea – Great for excess worry, over-thinking and insomnia.  Helps to calm and centre you.

I craft a batch of “Unwind Essences” each new moon.  They are made to order.

The crafting process usually takes around 7 – 10 days.

Once made the essences then marinate in my amethyst geode to deepen their potency.

I then infuse the essences with prayers, mantra’s reiki, and blessings to further deepen their therapeutic qualities.

About your adrenals:

Your adrenal glands are responsible for your ability to cope with stress.

Your adrenals sit just above your kidneys and as Dr. Christiane Northrup says “Your adrenals are your body’s prime shock absorbers and produce hormones including cortisol, adrenaline and DHEA, that allows you to respond to daily life in a healthy and flexible ways”


Helpful hints for adrenal fatigue and exhaustion:

Put yourself first more often

Learn to say no – stop giving your energy away unnecessarily

Start a daily 15 minute relaxation practice such as restorative yoga– its essential not an option

Spend time in nature – very grounding and de-stressing for the body

Honour your body more. Be mindful of your energy level.  Listen to your body.  Notice your breath more often.  Take 3 breathing breaks a day.

Stop doing things that you know are not good for you

Drink licorice tea (I can personally vouch for this tea, its awesome)

Reduce or ideally stop white sugar, caffeine and other artificial known stimulants


Book recommendation:

Spent, end exhaustion and feel great again” by Frank Lipman M.D.

This is a  great starting point if you are recovering from exhaustion.  It’s fabulous book with lots of easy and do-able suggestions.  Dr. Lipman gives you lots of options and choices encouraging you to make one or two small changes at a time.

Each week he offers a few key changes to your health, diet, sleep regime etc. all with the purpose of resting your body and restoring energy levels.   Dr.  Lipman whilst being a doctor is also a firm believer in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and restorative (restful) yoga.

Walking Meditation: Peace is Every Step by Thich Nhat Hanh

I absolutely love this book.

Simply hold this book and you’ll feel more peaceful.  It’s as if Thich Nhat Hanh’s calming energy oozes from every page.

It’s short. Super easy to read and understand.

The best part – it includes a DVD and CD with guided walking meditations. Most helpful if you’re a visual or auditory learner.

I am interested in your Adrenal Fatigue Recovery. It sounds like something I would benefit from. I live in the US. I am curious if I order two bottles how much it would cost? Do you charge shipping on both or can you combine the orders? Please let me know.
Have a beautiful day.



Carole Fogarty April 8, 2011 at 7:21 am

Hi Michele,

The shipping would be less for 2 bottles. The cost for 2 bottles plus shipping to US would be $35.00. Aus.

Hope this helps.

Hi Carole, I just wanted to tell you that I am enjoying your blog very much. You seem like such a peaceful person and that spirit is so needed by the world these days. I am gradually changing to that end, but it’s an ongoing process.
Thanks for sharing that ‘gentleness’.



Carole Fogarty April 25, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Thanks Debrah. Peace, love and chocolate, Carole

Hi Deborah, u say that you can also do a combination for menopause,
would those ingredients be added into the adrenal mixture or would it be a separate concoction?
