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.

It is common throughout the whole of southern England wherever mowing, grazing or spraying has left plants an opportunity to grow. It becomes increasingly scarce going north.
Agrimony is a perennial found on hedgebanks and roadside verges, in grassland and waste places; it often grow on chalk where the thin soil makes for shorter grass and so less competition. It will not tolerate acid soils or more than slight shade.
State of being
To soothe all those tormented in body or mind and bring them peace. The restless, the worried, the anxious, the tortured. Those who can find no peace of mind, no rest. There is such a vast army of these sufferers who so often hide their torment under smiles and joviality. They are often the cheeriest of people, and frequently humorists. A great number of these seek refuge in alcohol or even drugs as stimulants to help them to keep going. They will do anything rather than depress others with their trials. Even in severe illness they will jest and make light of their trials. They are brave people and Agrimony will help them so much.
