Are you feeling mentally and physically exhausted?

You may be suffering from a negative Olive state. This state creates a disturbed energy flow that affects a person's entire system and can bring about exhaustion,  often leading to physical illness – or more severe physical illness.

This state may come about due to a long period of strain. It might be a physical illness, a long period of giving care to another who has been suffering, a lack of sleep, or an unbalanced diet.
Whatever the cause, it feels awful. You don't want to interact with others any more – you just want to be left alone to be quiet, or to sleep. 

The Bach Flower Essence, Olive, can help bring you back. It allows you to gather strength and energy from your higher self rather than your physical self. 

This flower essence allows you to "Extend the olive branch" to yourself – and make peace between your physical and emotional selves.

The Olive tree symbolizes health and long life, as the trees are said to grow for hundreds of years. Greek mythology records that Athena, the Goddess of wisdom and peace, struck her magic spear into the Earth, and it turned into an olive tree. The location where the olive tree appeared and grew was named Athens, Greece, in honor of the Goddess, Athena. Local legend says that tree is still living.

Mythology aside, considering the healing properties of the olive and its oil, it's no wonder that Dr. Bach included the flower essence of the Olive blossom in his research and testing.

Today, the Olive flower essence brings peace, regeneration, and restored balance to those who have become completely exhausted at the physical, emotional, and psychological levels.

If the Teacher Says Your Child Won't Sit Still…

You'll probably be called in for a conference – and you may be advised to get your child on medication for Attention Deficit Disorder. But perhaps you should explore some other options before risking the side effects of prescription drugs. 

It can't be good to fill young, developing bodies with those toxins.

Many believe that Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) has to do with diet. Even those who cook from scratch are using ingredients that may be genetically modified. And those who rely on prepared foods are eating a lot of preservatives and additives that we didn't get 40 years ago.

And what about external stimulation? Kids are constantly bombarded by video games and TV. And then there's the pressure. Schools add greatly to that one, now that even pre-school has become competitive.

When you combine all those factors with parents who are stressed from working too many jobs,  dealing with long commutes, and worrying over the state of the economy, it's no wonder that kids get a little off balance.

Before you take the chance of using pharmaceutical drugs on your child, why not try a cure from nature: Bach Flower Essences.

The ADD problem is so common, that FeelBach! has even developed a "shelf product" specifically to realign the energies of children and adults who are suffering from it.

Since Bach Flower Remedies are safe for everyone from infants to nursing mothers to the elderly, you'll take no chance of doing harm while you're trying to do good. Flower essences cause no adverse side effects - and if your child is already on pharmaceuticals, they can be used in conjunction without fear of drug interactions.

And meanwhile, why not try to ease your own stresses. Take the Bach Flower Questionnaire, order your custom blend, and see how much better your children feel when you find life easier to cope with.

If Alcohol is an issue...

Recently I recommended Bach Flower Essences to a friend whose daughter was suffering from some emotionally-based problems. My friend thought it sounded good until she realized that Bach Flower Essences are preserved in Brandy. 

Then she said "No, it's dangerous for my daughter to even catch the scent of alcohol." It seems her daughter is an alcoholic who was, at that moment, on the wagon. My friend didn't want to offer anything that would trigger the next drinking binge. 

Hers is an extreme case. For most, even for alcoholics, the amount of alcohol in Bach flower Essences is too miniscule to matter. It's probably less than they'd get by using mouthwash. The ratio of alcohol to the spring water and flower essences is 1 to 360 – or less than three tenths of one percent.

So, although there is not enough alcohol to do harm to infants, the ill, or the elderly, you can taste the brandy in this formula. 

But that doesn't mean you can't use Bach Flower Essences. If you’re sensitive to alcohol, or if you’re buying for someone who is, go to to build a personal formula. Then, in the last step, write “alcohol-free” in the comment area.

If you own the set of Bach Flower essences and are making a formula for someone, use only 2 drops of each essence in the 20 or 30 ml bottle, and fill with spring water – omitting the brandy entirely.

Without the preservative, you'll need new formula more often, but if alcohol sensitivity is a real problem, it will be worth it.

Are You Missing the Fun in Life?

Are you missing the fun? Are you so convinced that life is bad that you can't really have a good time, even when friends and family bend over backward to please you? 

If so, you're suffering from a negative Gentian state. 

Sometimes this state comes about as the result of circumstances. In today's environment, it could very well be unemployment that has you down. And you probably get mad if a spouse says "For heaven's sake, this isn't the end of the world. We're going to get through this. And all of life isn't gloomy. Look at the love your family gives you. Can't you at least appreciate and enjoy that?"

People in a severely negative Gentian state do NOT want to hear about what's good. They're stuck on what's bad. 

The negative Gentian state can also be the result of illness, or the loss of a loved one. Children who are unhappy in school often fall into this state, as do elderly people who are forced to move to a care facility. 

Whatever the cause, the result is misery. Not just for the person in the negative state – for their whole family. They just keep trying to find a way to make the sufferer smile - and being rebuffed. It is no fun at all. 

So if you're missing the fun - or if someone you love is missing the fun – get a bottle of the Bach Flower Essence Gentian and get on the road to recovery.
