Bach Original Flower Remedies Agrimony (20 ml)
Agrimony is the remedy for people who keep their troubles hidden under a mask of pleasure and happiness. The archetypal Agrimony person would be the sad clown, suffering anguish inside by still the life and soul of the party. Their friends are often the last to know that anything is wrong in the Agrimony person's life. Sometimes Agrimony people turn to drink or drugs to help them maintain a mask of happiness, and they tend not to like being alone since they find it harder to keep the mask up when they are forced into their own company. Instead they will seek out friends, parties and bright lights. Only at night when they are alone with their thoughts will the mental torture they have repressed so successfully come back to haunt them.
Agrimony is given to help Agrimony people to accept and come to terms with the darker side of life and their own personalities, so that they can become more rounded human beings. They will not lose their sense of humour, but they will laugh at their troubles to dispel them, rather than laughing to hide them. As a mood remedy, Agrimony helps anyone who is trying not to face a trouble and using jokes and witticisms and smiles to avoid a painful reality. Dr Bach's description 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. - taken from The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies
About Bach Flower Remedies
Dr Edward Bach was a Physician and Homeopath who spent his life searching for the purest methods of healing. Dr Bach discovered 38 remedies which he split into seven different groups and can be combined to suit the individual. The flower remedies are made from wild plants, trees and bushes. They work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms and are a gentle way to manage your emotions and rediscover the positive side of ourselves.
Each of the 38 Bach™ Original Flower Remedies is unique and helps to treat a different emotion. Most people find it reasonably easy to select their own remedies. All you need to do is find the remedy (or remedies) that seems to reflect your situation, mood or personality the best. You can mix up to seven together at a time. All the states described are everyday human emotions that we all feel from time to time. Even the most negative state has a corresponding positive quality that shows us what we can be when we are fully ourselves.
Who Can Take Bach Flower Remedies?
Everyone. Being yourself means being relaxed, fulfilled and natural. When we feel ourselves we are at our best. We can cope with everything that life throws at us. But sometimes… well sometimes we aren't quite ourselves. We feel out of sort, as if something isn't right. And sometimes we need a little help to get back on track. You can use the Bach™ Original Flower Remedies to overcome everyday bad feelings. You can use them when you are ill, because most doctors agree that good emotional health supports and aids the recovery of physical health. You can use them to move on in your life and to find hidden strengths and potentials. Above all, you can use them to be yourself.

Why is there alcohol in Bach Original Flower Remedies?
Dr Bach used alcohol in his preparations, usually brandy, for its preservative properties. It is there to guard against microbial contamination which could otherwise grow in the water-based remedies. The alcohol is not an active ingredient. In the early days when chemists were supplied with mother tinctures to prepare the stock remedies, they used either rectified spirit or pure alcohol. Nora Weeks explained: 'In preparing the stock bottles, including the Rescue Remedy, at Mount Vernon, we use brandy instead of rectified spirit added by the chemists. The brandy, like the rectified spirit, is used only as a preservative and makes no difference whatever to the strength or efficiency of the remedy.'
How quickly will the remedies start to make a difference?
For some people it can be immediately, for others it might take a little longer depending on the issues being treated. Each case is unique.
Can the remedies only be added to water?
You can add the remedies to tea, coffee, fizzy drinks etc. They differ to homeopathic remedies in this respect. Hot drinks will cause the alcohol to evaporate but the flower essence will remain in the drink.
Are there any side effects from using the remedies?
Whilst the Bach Flower remedies are considered to be free from side effects, if you notice anything different when using the remedies or experience any additional symptoms please stop taking the remedies and speak to either your doctor or a Registered Bach Flower Practitioner.
Do the remedies work faster if I don't dilute them?
There is no difference in potency or speed of effect between taking the four drops from a treatment bottle and taking neat stock remedy. The brandy in the stock bottle will, however, taste stronger and this psychologically may give the impression that the essences are stronger. This isn't the case.
Can I take Bach Original Flower Remedies with other medicine?
As always, if you are taking prescribed medication it is advisable for you to speak with your doctor before using the Bach Flower Remedies (or other forms of self purchased treatments) and and follow the advice given.
How many remedies can I use at once?
No more than seven should be used. You may feel as if you need more than this, but you should try to pinpoint six or seven at the most. Try to pinpoint how you are feeling at the moment, then match the exact mood you're in with the appropriate remedy. Any past emotions can be treated once you have dealt with the present ones.
