Today's political climate calls for Holly, Mimulus, and Gorse flower essences

Every time we turn on the television or log onto our email or social media accounts, we see more evidence of conflict and yes – hatred. 

People hate people they've never met – often based on information they've seen on TV or on their
computers. Never mind that not all of that information is true. Whole groups hate other whole groups, without ever meeting any of the members of those groups.

It's almost a sickness, and it's being fed by people who like to make headlines. 

But hatred isn't healthy – for mind, body, or soul. 

The Law of Attraction states that "like attracts like," so hatred can only attract more hatred. And unfortunately, hateful thoughts result in diminished physical health, along with diminished mental acuity and the loss of joy. 

The flower essence to deal with this is Holly. Holly gives us compassion and sympathy for others, so we may be able to see past the reasons for hatred and begin to understand another point of view. We might not agree, but we can move beyond hatred. 

The second result of all the negative news is fear. After listening to dire predictions, we may fear for our future or our children's future. And of course, fear is non-productive. It can even be paralyzing. At the very least it prevents us from enjoying life to the fullest. Doctor Bach's formula to combat fear is Mimulus. 

Mimulus combats all kinds of fear – from fear that our children are not safe in school to fear that climate change is about to end the world. It also helps us deal with more common fears – such as going to the dentist or speaking in front of a group of people. 

While Holly and Mimulus can help stave off the hatred and fear, the flower essence to help bring back a more joyful state is Gorse. Gorse helps to insulate us from negative thoughts and gives us strength to hope for the best. 

Each of Doctor Bach's flower essences will help you re-balance your energies, so you can live life to the fullest without being held back or made physically ill by negative emotions. 

If you know you don't feel as physically, mentally, and spiritually well as you could, but you aren't sure which of the flower essences will help you most, go to FeelBach! and fill out the questionnaire. Our experts will create a formula that is just right for you.
