Agrimony / Bach Flower Remedy - 20ml Liquid
Negative Aspects Treated: inner torture hidden behind a façade of cheerfulness; hides worries from others
Positive Outcomes: truly laugh at their own worries; genuine optimists; fine sense of humour, without pretence
People who need Agrimony often appear carefree and humourous, but their joie de vivre is a mask for anxieties, worries and even real inner torment, which they may be trying to conceal from themselves as well as others. If in pain or discomfort, they are likely to joke about it, unwilling to express their real fears. They dislike being alone and are very sociable, seeking company as a distraction. They try to ignore the darker side of life, and prefer to make light of things rather than enter into a confrontation. They may also suffer from restlessness at night, with churning thoughts (see also White Chestnut).
Agrimony people may suppress their discomfort with the aid of heavy drinking, or the use of drugs or comfort eating.
The positive potential of Agrimony is for those who are genuinely cheerful and good company, communicate their real feelings openly and can accept that life has its less pleasant side. Their cheerfulness stems from a real sense of self-acceptance and inner joy; they see problems in perspective and are diplomatic peace makers.
In Dr. Bach's words:
"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 them and help themselves bear their trials with cheerfulness."
