Pine (Pinnus Sylvestris)
Pine in indicated for people who feel full of guilt and self-reproach; they blame themselves for other people's mistakes and, indeed, for anything that goes wrong. They feel undeserving and unworthy. Their guilt complex and sense of shame is not necessarily based on any actual wrong-doing but destroys the possibility of joy in living.
These people appear humble and apologetic; they will apologise for being ill and may feel they deserve their illness of pain.
The positive potential of Pine allows people to accept responsbility realistically and to have sound judgement. Positive Pine people accept and respect themselves as they would others, without exaggeratedly negative judgements. In relation to Pine, Dr Bach wrote '... One trace of condemnation against ourselves, or others, is a trace of condemnation against the Universal Creation of Love, and restricts us, limits our power to allow the Universal Love to flow through us to others.'
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.
