Agrimony Flower Remedy – Inner Harmony

Agrimony is one of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies. Discovered by Dr Edward Bach in the 1930’s the Bach Flower Remedies are simple, natural and gentle acting remedies which help you to balance your thought and emotions. They have an understandably enduring appeal and are still the most popular and well known flower essences around the world today.

Agrimony restores the ability to express ones true feelings and emotions no matter what these might be

What Does Agrimony Do?

Agrimony restores the ability to express ones true feelings and emotions no matter what these might be. Those in need of Agrimony have much inner anxiety and turmoil that they cover up with a smile and a laugh when in the company of others. They are so successful at this that they appear to be ‘the life & soul of the party’ without a care in the world. Their sensitivity and dislike of discord leads them to try to keep the peace at any cost.

However, when the pressure of these bottled up emotions becomes too great they may explode in anger and often use alcohol or drugs as a way of cutting themselves off from their unexpressed inner worries.

Other indications for this remedy are restless sleep patterns and a need for constant outer stimulation. Agrimony promotes ease of expression, leading to feelings of real inner harmony and peace.

Dr Bach’s description of Agrimony

"The jovial, cheerful, humorous people who love peace and are distressed by argument or quarrel, to avoid which they will agree to give up much. Though generally they have troubles and are tormented and restless and worried in mind or in body, they hide their cares behind their humour and jesting and are considered very good friends to know. They often take alcohol or drugs in excess, to stimulate themselves and help themselves bear their trials with cheerfulness."

From The Twelve Healers & Other Remedies – By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )

Dr. Bach’s Seven Main Groups

Dr. Bach divided his 38 Bach Flower Remedies into seven different personality groups; each group representing the differing ways a particular thought pattern or emotion could be seen and experienced in the personality.

Agrimony is in Dr Bach’s – Oversensitive to Influences and Ideas Group

The four remedies in this group express the different ways we can react to feelings of vulnerability and over sensitivity to the emotional and mental energies of others. The Over-sensitivity group remedies are: Agrimony, Centaury, Holly, Walnut

The Agrimony Flower

The Latin Name for Agrimony is: Agrimonia eupatoria

Agrimony is a medium to tall native perennial plant, growing between 30 – 60cm in height. It has a single stem with clusters of yellow flowers on which bloom between June and August. The five petalled flowers are small and yellow and usually appear from the bottom of the stem upwards and face out horizontally. Agrimony is also known as ‘Church Steeples’, among several other alternative names.

Making the Agrimony Remedy

Dr. Bach first discovered and made the Agrimony remedy in Cromer, Norfolk, in August 1930. The Agrimony flower was growing abundantly in the fields and grassy verges around the town and he prepared it using the sun method of potentisation.

How To Use Agrimony

Our Bach Flower Remedies are stock level Essences which can be diluted into a treatment bottle as suggested by Dr Bach or used directly from stock if preferred. A treatment bottle can contain one single essence or a combination of up to eight different essences.

Making a Treatment Combination

Making a Bach Flower Remedy combination is simple and easy: put 2 drops from each of the Remedies you require (4 drops of Revival Remedy) into a clean glass dropper bottle containing up to 30ml of spring water (adding a teaspoon full of brandy or cider vinegar as a preservative if you wish). Alternatively you can put 4 drops of each remedy required (8 drops of Revival Remedy) into a glass of water. You can combine up to 8 of the Bach Remedies.

How to Use Your Combination

10ml and 25ml Bach Flower Remedy bottles

Using Your Combination: For a normal adult dosage take 4 drops on the tongue (or a sip from your glass of water) 8 x a day, or every 30 – 60 minutes for acute states. Using Directly From Stock: Take 2 drops on the tongue as above. Preferably take 10 minutes away from food and drink. We’d normally suggest using for two – four weeks before reviewing how you feel.
