One of Bach's second 19 remedies.
Prepared by the boiling method.

 

Indication

 

Those who live much in the past, perhaps in a time of great happiness, or memories of a lost friend, or ambitions which have not come true. They do not expect further happiness such as they have had.

 

Twelve Healers 1936

 

Affirmation

 

Finally, let us not fear to plunge into life; we are here to gain experience and knowledge, and we shall learn but little unless we face realities and seek to our utmost.

 

Collected Writings p138

 

Habitat notes

 

General

 

Red Honeysuckles are either wild hybrids or garden escapes. They are native to the Mediterranean. Because it is the redness allied to the pattern of growth that gives its quality, a garden plant will embody the nature of this remedy state. It often grows strongly in an old cottage garden.

 

Britain

 

Wild red honeysuckles, though uncommon, can be found in woodlands and hedges in south-east England.

 

Emotional state

 

For nostalgia, homesickness, those who live much in the past, past loves, happiness, regrets, success or failures, those who live on their memories, desiring to escape the present in a romanticised view of the past
