The holidays often bring melancholy to those who have lost loved ones, or who yearn for the days when their children were small and the family was large and boisterous.
They miss the noisy holiday dinners, with perhaps 20 friends and family members around the table. They mourn for those who have passed on, and wish that their children could be home again, rather than living in some other part of the country - or dining with their in-laws.
If holiday dinners are now the same as dinner every other day - cooking for only one or two - it's easy to feel depressed.
These are natural and normal feelings, but when they destroy enjoyment of the "now," they need to be addressed. The sufferer needs to move forward, accept change, and find enjoyment in today while still retaining and cherishing good memories of the past.
Honeysuckle is the Bach Flower Essence that will help re-balance those energies and allow a person to live well in the present.
It's also natural to have regrets from the past. Everyone has done or said something that he or she wishes could be erased. If those regrets have grown into genuine feelings of guilt, then Pine can be added to the Honeysuckle for a more complete Bach Flower Remedy.
