  3. Start with this program . Prepare each dose by putting 6 chamomile tea bags with 3 rosehip tea bags in a litre of boiling water. Allow to cool with the tea bags in it. Then add a couple of drops of Rescue Remedy and give a quarter of it every couple of hours, maybe first as a drench and later mixed with feed.
