7 Flower Remedies for Depression

Sweet Chestnut
Selected for feelings of hopelessness, Sweet Chestnut reflects a long, courageous battle that feels lost.  It is particularly suited when it feels like an inner transformation is occurring and a “dying off” of a person’s old self is taking place.

Willow is best suited for negativity and a tendency to blame others for the problems in life.  Alternatively, if your sadness is linked to a grudge that you’re holding onto but would like to let go of, Willow is a good choice.

Rescue Remedy
When you’re not sure which remedy to choose, Rescue remedy is a good choice.  It is a combination of five remedies and is used to help manage stress, trauma, and, of course, sadness.

Bach flower remedies should never replace qualified medical care.  The above information is provided for educational purposes and is not intended for diagnosis or treatment.

This is an interesting article but based on Dale doing some research on Wikipedia, and what it said there about his ideas and the way he derived these remedies, if these so called remedies could possibly be healing or if it is more created in the person's mind such as a placebo.

I don't know why most articles on flower essences always refer to the Bach essences,There are many many other essence sets available. I use the ones from Perelandra ltd.They not only have flower essences that deal with emotional health, they have a whole line of microbial ballancing solutions that address every body system. And they have essence products just for animals, plants, the soil,and human innitiated projects. The idea here is that humans are highly creative but they don't know beans about ballance. Nature knows how to keep things in ballance, so when people 'work' with Nature, the inherent intelligence in Nature will move the human project foreward in ballance. It is fascinating stuff to watch this unfold.
