Mimulus (Mimulus luteus) is one of the original Bach Flower Remedies, one of the ‘Twelve Healers’ that Dr Edward Bach discovered first. We received mimulus plants from Honeysome Aquatic Nursery and planted some in the pond and some at the edges of the pond. It’s those with their roots in the water that have flourished and flowered.

Mimulus flower remedy releases known fears and phobias – fears of real and everyday things like spiders, not having enough money, strange dogs, dentists etc.

People who need mimulus often seem timid and sensitive; they may be startled easily by loud noise, bright lights and groups of people. As mimulus is taken, they gain greater courage and the ability to embrace life fearlessly.

‘Come to the edge,’ He said. They said, ‘We are afraid.’ ‘Come to the edge,’ He said. They came. He pushed them…and they flew.” – Guillaume Apollinaire
