In Response to a Question on Flight Anxiety

Fear of flying can be treated with both flower essences and herbs. Valerian can be a good choice for sedating anxiety, although in a few rare cases, folks are stimulated rather than relaxed by Valerian. L-Theanine, an amino acid from green tea, is also a good option for anxiety.

Dose: take 1 cap either Valerian or L-Theanine before you get on the plane or prior to full-fledged anxiety. Repeat as needed every 3 hours.

A flower essence specific for fear of flying (as well as fear of heights, spiders or other phobias) is mimulus, taken 2-4 drops 4x day as soon, if not before, the anxiety begins.
