Willow is one of the 38 remedies in the Bach Flower Remedies system, which was developed by Dr. Edward Bach to address emotional and psychological imbalances. Each remedy in this system is associated with specific emotional states or personality traits.
Willow is primarily used to address feelings of resentment, bitterness, and a sense of being a victim. People who might benefit from Willow often experience the following symptoms or emotions:
- Resentment: They harbor feelings of anger, bitterness, and resentment toward others or life circumstances, often feeling that they have been treated unfairly.
- Blaming others: They may have a tendency to blame others for their misfortunes and may feel like life is against them.
- Moodiness: They can be irritable, sulky, and prone to negative emotions.
Willow flower essence is intended to help individuals release feelings of resentment and regain a more positive and accepting outlook on life. It can promote forgiveness, a sense of personal responsibility, and a greater capacity to move forward with a more optimistic attitude.
Bach Flower Remedies like Willow are typically taken orally in the form of drops diluted in water or other beverages. These remedies are considered complementary remedies for emotional well-being and are often used alongside other forms of treatment.
If you or someone you know is struggling with feelings of resentment or bitterness and is seeking a more positive and forgiving outlook, Willow may be a helpful remedy to consider. It’s advisable to consult with a qualified Bach Flower therapist or a healthcare professional who is knowledgeable about their use to determine if it’s appropriate for the specific situation and to receive guidance on the correct dosage and usage.
