Aspen – Bach Flower Remedies
Aspen helps those who experience anxiety for which there appears to be no logical reason. This can take the form of vague but potent apprehension of some unknown future event or an uneasy ‘spooked out’ feeling in the dark or in strange places. The creepy, shivery feeling that is sometimes described as ‘someone just walked over my grave’ expresses the Aspen fear of the spirit / psychic realms very well. Shaking, trembling, or vague fluttering feelings in the tummy together with coldness, paleness & nightmares are all indications of the need for Aspen.
Dr Bach’s description of Aspen:-
“Vague unknown fears, for which there can be given no explanation, no reason. Yet the patient may be terrified of something terrible going to happen, he knows not what. These vague unexplainable fears may haunt by night or day. Sufferers often are afraid to tell their trouble to others.” From the Twelve Healers & Other Remedies – By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )
Dr Bach placed Aspen in the Fear Group
The Latin Name for Aspen is:- Populus Tremula
