Agrimony – Bach Flower Remedies
Agrimony restores the ability to express ones true feelings and emotions no matter what these might be. Those in need of Agrimony have much inner anxiety and turmoil that they cover up with a smile and a laugh when in the company of others. They are so successful at this that they appear to be ‘the life & soul of the party’ without a care in the world. Their sensitivity and dislike of discord leads them to try to keep the peace at any cost. However, when the pressure of these bottled up emotions becomes too great they may explode in anger and often use alcohol or drugs as a way of cutting themselves off from their unexpressed inner worries. Other indications for this remedy are restless sleep patterns and a need for constant outer stimulation. Agrimony promotes ease of expression, leading to feelings of real inner harmony and peace.
Dr Bach’s description of Agrimony:-
“The jovial, cheerful, humorous people who love peace and are distressed by argument or quarrel, to avoid which they will agree to give up much. Though generally they have troubles and are tormented and restless and worried in mind or in body, they hide their cares behind their humour and jesting and are considered very good friends to know. They often take alcohol or drugs in excess, to stimulate themselves and help themselves bear their trials with cheerfulness.” The Twelve Healers & Other Remedies – By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )
