Remedies for Christmas

Remedies for ChristmasChristmas is supposed to be the season of love and goodwill. Statistics show, however, that there are more family conflicts and emotional outbursts over the Christmas holidays than at any other time.

Whether your problem is getting along with your family, or having to get along without them, there is a remedy in the Bach system that could help you.

  • Try Willow if you feel sorry for yourself because you are the only one who isn’t having a good time.
  • Try Impatiens if Christmas is a whirl of last-minute shopping and hectic preparations, so that you have little time for actually sharing it with anyone.
  • Try Beech if Auntie Elsie’s eating habits and taste in television irritate you beyond measure.
  • Try Olive if the preparations for Christmas leave you too tired to enjoy it.
  • … and try Hornbeam if just thinking about Christmas is enough to make you want to crawl back into bed until the new year.
