Willow is for those who are resentful and have feelings of self pity. Willow is one of Edward Bach's Original Flower Remedies homoeopathically prepared from plant flower extract.
For those who have suffered adversity or misfortune and find these difficult to accept, without complaint or resentment, as they judge life much by the success which it brings. They feel that they have not deserved so great a trial, that it was unjust, and they become embittered.They often take less interest and are less active in those things of life which they had previously enjoyed.”
Dr Edward Bach
Willow Bach Flower Remedy is made from a 5x dilution of Salix vitelina in a grape alcohol solution.
You can take the remedies in several ways, and the instructions here are designed to be easy to remember. Taking larger doses at one time doesn't have a stronger effect; but if you are going through a crisis you can take more frequent doses to get you through it..
You can also take remedies 'neat', without diluting them, by either applying to the tongue or applying directly to the skin, by rubbing onto the lips, behind the ears, or on the temples and wrists.
To make it easy to remember, you take the same number of drops when taking a neat stock remedy as you do when you are mixing remedies in a treatment bottle or glass of water: two drops, direct on the tongue.
If you are taking the the pre-mixed Rescue Remedy the dosage is four drops, again direct on the tongue.
In either case, repeat as necessary - for long-term treatments, at least four times a day.
The Glass Water method
For short-term moods and problems put two drops of each selected remedy in a glass of water. Sip as often as required until relief is obtained.
You can use this method for longer-term problems as well. Just sip from the glass throughout the day, at least four times a day - and keep the glass in the 'fridge or make up a fresh glass each day.
