One of Dr Edward Bach's homes, whilst he lived for four years in the seaside town of Cromer, was at Brunswick Terrace, on the slipway. The view from house had a good vantage point overlooking the sea and lifeboat station and from here he, like his neighbours, would often have seen the boat going out to rescue those in peril.
On one famous occasion, during a ferocious storm in December 1933, Dr Bach witnessed the heroic rescue by the legendary Henry Blogg, and his RNLI crew, of two men who, for two hours, had been clinging to the wreckage of the sailing barge - The Sepoy.
When the half-drowned sailors were brought ashore they were "delirious, foaming at the mouth, almost frozen, their life despaired of".
Upon witnessing this dramatic rescue it is said that Edward went to his kitchen and quickly mixed a concoction of his flower remedies. He then rushed down the gangway and gave the first rescued man some of his newly created remedy.
Before the man had been stripped of his clothing and wrapped in warm blankets he was "sitting up, in his right mind, and asking for a cigarette". It is said that that seemingly impromptu concoction was the birth of the now famous Rescue Remedy - a blend of Star of Bethlehem, Clematis, Cherry Plum, Impatiens and Rock Rose.
I have always wondered if that's why Dr Bach called his mixture 'Rescue' Remedy - as it was first used in that famous sea rescue.
