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.

Here at Offshoots Permaculture Project in Burnley, Lancashire we’re planning to grow all the Bach Flower Remedy plants on one site. The world famous Bach Flower Remedies were discovered by a medical doctor called Edward Bach in the 1930’s. The most popular Bach Flower Remedies are the combination he called Rescue Remedy® (also known as Revival Remedy™ and 5 Flower Remedy®).

The Bach Flower Remedies are made from trees, wildflowers and cultivated plants.  A grant from the Big Lottery Fund is enabling us to teach the local community about how these flower essences support health and wellbeing and show people how to make their own essences. If you’re in Lancashire, join us for an essence-making workshop or tree planting event – get in touch if you’d like to be kept informed of upcoming dates.
