olive at OffshootsOlive flower remedy was one of the few Bach Flower Remedies that Edward Bach got his friends from abroad to make as it’s not native to this country.

We’re delighted to have been given a magnificent olive by Seagrave Nurseries and it’s in the sunniest part of the garden against a South facing wall close to all the Mediterranean herbs.  We think it will flourish there.

Olive flower remedy (made from the tiny creamy white flowers of Olea Europoea) is for when your energy levels are depleted and you’re completely exhausted both mentally and physically.

This is often a temporary state after illness or a time when you’ve been doing too much.

As olive is taken your energy levels will be renewed and you’ll feel strong again.

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

Rock Rose (Helianthemum nummularium) is flowering happily here at Offshoots, despite only arriving a couple of months ago from Poyntzfield Herbs. Click here to see how tiny the plants were when they first arrived.

Rock Rose flower remedy is one of the ingredients of the world-famous Rescue Remedy® (also known as Revival Remedy™ and 5 Flower Remedy®) which many people rely on in times of stress.

Rock rose is used to alleviate feelings of panic, terror, nightmares and heart-stopping fear. Taking rock rose flower remedy restores courage, calm and safety.
