Agrimony

Agrimony...

...is the remedy for people who keep their troubles hidden under a mask of pleasure and happiness. The
archetypal Agrimony person would be the sad clown, suffering anguish inside by still the life and soul of
the party. Their friends are often the last to know that anything is wrong in the Agrimony person's life.
Sometimes Agrimony people turn to drink or drugs to help them maintain a mask of happiness, and they
tend not to like being alone since they find it harder to keep the mask up when they are forced into their
own company. Instead they will seek out friends, parties and bright lights. Only at night when they are
alone with their thoughts will the mental torture they have repressed so successfully come back to haunt
them.
Agrimony is given to help Agrimony people to accept and come to terms with the darker side of life and
their own personalities, so that they can become more rounded human beings. They will not lose their
sense of humour, but they will laugh at their troubles to dispel them, rather than laughing to hide them.
As a mood remedy, Agrimony helps anyone who is trying not to face a trouble and using jokes and
witticisms and smiles to avoid a painful reality.

Dr Bach's description
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

Impatiens

Impatiens...

...is, as its name suggests, the remedy against impatience and against frustration and irritability caused by
impatience. Anyone can get into this state of mind, but there are also genuine Impatiens types, who live
life at a rush and hate being held back by more methodical people. To avoid this irritation they try if
possible to work alone: the Impatiens boss is the one who sends staff home early so she can get the job
finished quicker!
The remedy helps these people be less hasty and more relaxed and patient with others. It is also an
ingredient in the composite Rescue Remedy, where it is used to help calm agitated thoughts and feelings.

Dr Bach's description
Those who are quick in thought and action and who wish all things to be done without hesitation or
delay. When ill they are anxious for a hasty recovery. They find it very difficult to be patient with people
who are slow, as they consider it wrong and a waste of time, and they will endeavour to make such
people quicker in all ways. They often prefer to work and think alone, so that they can do everything at
their own speed.

Larch

Larch...

...is the remedy for people who feel that they are not as good as others and that they are bound to fail.
They lack confidence in their ability to succeed and so often do not even bother trying. (cf Elm people,
where it is the desire to take on too much that causes the temporary doubt.)
The remedy helps people in this state to go ahead regardless of thoughts of success and failure. More
able to take risks and be involved in life, they get more out of living.

Dr Bach's description
For those who do not consider themselves as good or capable as those around them, who expect failure,
who feel that they will never be a success, and so do not venture or make a strong enough attempt to
succeed.
