Olive is for those who are exhausted in body and mind after a long period of strain through personal difficulties, an intense period of study or work, a long illness, or nursing someone else for a long time. It is a good remedy for convalescence.
Olive is characterised by exhaustion to the point of tears, when all reserves of strength and energy have run out. Everything is an effort; one tires easily, and life lacks zest. Sufferers no longer enjoy their work or the leisure activities in which they formerly took pleasure.
Sufferers find they need a lot of sleep. As a result of being over tired the body may be functioning below par.
The positive potential of Olive is restoration of strength, vitality and interest in life. Positive Olive people no longer exhaust their own reserves of strength but listen to their inner guidance and recognise the needs of their body. They are able to maintain their peace of mind even when forced to remain inactive.
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.
