Gloom or depression which comes and goes for no apparent reason.
Mustard helps those who from time to time experience a black cloud of gloom that comes and goes for no reason that is obvious. Those in this state feel despairing and unable to cover over how they feel. They withdraw into themselves, feeling separate and isolated from the rest of the world. Mustard helps to dispel the blackness, bringing back light and joy.
Dr Bachs description of Mustard:-
“Those who are liable to times of gloom, or even despair, as though a cold dark cloud overshadowed them and hid the light and the joy of life. It may not be possible to give any reason or explanation for such attacks. Under these conditions it is almost impossible to appear happy or cheerful”. From the Twelve Healers & Other Remedies – By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )
Dr Bach placed Mustard in the Insufficient Interest in Present Circumstances Group
The Latin Name for Mustard is:- Sinapsis Arvensis
