Holly (Ilex Aquifolium)
Holly is for people who can be bad-tempered, hard-hearted, even cruel and on occasions violent. Inside, they are suffering - often for no good cause. They find it difficult to open their hearts to love.
The negative Holly state is full of hatred, envy and jealousy. Suffering, perhaps unconsciously from insecurity. Holly people are suspicious and aggressive. They lack the ability to love and feel a generalised anger towards their fellows.
Holly is a good remedy for children who are jealous of their siblings.
The positive potential of Holly is a generous-hearted person, able to give without making demands for any return. Such people are compassionate, loving and loverable, willing to share and unpossessive, even when having personal problems themselves. Upheld by a sense of inner harmony, they take genuine pleasure in other people's success. Dr Bach wrote: 'Holly protects us from everything that is not Universal Love. Holly opens the heart and unites us with Divine Love'.
For multiple use, add two drops to a 30ml mixing bottle (you may combine up to seven remedies in this bottle), top up with mineral water and take four drops at least four times a day.
If neccessary, the Bach Original Flower Remedies can be dropped neat onto the tongue, or rubbed onto the lips, behind the ears, or on the temples and wrists.
You can take Bach Original Flower Remedies as often as you want. If you are in a mood or a bit of a crisis, you only may need one dose, but if you've been feeling the same way for some time you can take them as long as you need to.
