Helianthemum nummularium

"The rescue remedy. The remedy of emergency for cases where there even appears no hope. In accident or sudden illness, or when the patient is very frightened or terrified, or if the condition is serious enough to cause great fear to those around. If the patient is not conscious the lips may be moistened with the remedy. Other remedies in addition may also be required, as, for example, if there is an unconsciousness, which is a deep, sleepy state, Clematis; if there is torture, Agrimony, and so on."

—Edward Bach, The Twelve Healers
