Oak / Bach Flower Remedy – 10ml Liquid
Oak people are normally brave, strong and reliable; they need Oak when their inner strength wanes and fatigue takes over. They keep going, whatever happens, ignoring their tiredness. Driven by a strong sense of duty, they are helpful to others, conscientious and reliable. They are patient, sometimes plodding, and will not allow themselves to relax if there is work to be done; instead they struggle on obstinately when over-tired (see also Rock-Water and Vervain).
The resultant loss of innate strength may lead to depression, frustration and other stress symptoms. These people have a sense of failure when ill but are ceaseless in their efforts to recover.
Positive potential Oak people are normally strong, often the mainstay of their family or working group. They possess enormous endurance, persistence, patience and reserves of energy, and can stand up to a good deal of stress. Oak restores their energy and helps them to recognise the need to take time off to relax and look after themselves as well as their duties.
In Dr. Bach's words:
"For those who are struggling and fighting strongly to get well, or in connection with the affairs of their daily life. They will go on trying one thing after another, though their case may seem hopeless. They will fight on. They are discontented with themselves if illness interferes with their duties or helping others. They are brave people, fighting against great difficulties, without loss of hope or effort."
