Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 014

Who is this fella? What is he doing at the camp so late at night? Is he an ex-sea scout? Is he a camper's brother who came to see him? Who is he?

Bach Flower Remedies

I'm sure you all have heard of aromatherapy and the wonders it can do for you in certain situations. Most likely, only your mothers and/or wives are using aromatherapy and usually for common practices like relieving stress and flu (or maybe even as an aphrodisiac) although essential oils have a wide range of uses.

Alternative medicine may not be as widely practised yet compared to modern medical practices but it is definitely gaining in prominence. Let me now introduce you to another alternative medicine branch called back flower remedy. Bach flower remedies are dilutions of flower essences developed by a certain Edward Bach. The remedies are used primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress.

For example, Mimulus Bach Flower Remedy can be used to overcome fears such as public speaking. It also helps for those who have a problem with stammering. If you're a workaholic, you may want to look into Oak Bach Flower Remedy. Also for multi-purpose and/or emergency situations, there's the Rescue Remedy Spray which consists of a blend of bach flower essences designed for situations of stress, shock and injury which is great for children and pets.

Maybe it will still be too early to find alternative medicine supplies in the Troop first aid kid but maybe in the near future, it could be a possibility. With this paid review, it is hoped that you now have a better understanding of bach flower remedies.

Say What?!? Part 004

Say What?!? Part 004

Former TL and ASSL Simon Loh is very well known for his crazy nature and would most definitely be a suitable candidate for a Say What?!? segment. Here, you see him in one of his wacky moods, making a fool of himself, all for the sake of others having a good laugh. In this fourth installment of the caption-making-just-for-fun-only what-you-call-it-thingy, put the words into this 'siao lang' we all know as Simon Loh.

Usaha Training Camp

The George Town (North) & (South) Local Association of Scouts is organising an Usaha Training Camp from Friday to Sunday at Sekolah Menengah Haji Zainul Abidin, Penang. The camp is open to all boy scouts from secondary schools. For details, call Min Han at 012-42597017 or Thean Yu at 012-4708093.
