So …Miss I have my own standard herbs I never stray from, stubborn witch. ….
Was introduced to a new one from a dear friend of mine yesterday.
It was labeled as protective and to chase away bad juju, When holding it and smelling it I experienced this very sudden mood change after a pretty dark long day.
I looked up more info on it tonight as it seemed to be the smell that affected me most. The following is from a Bach Healing site and wasn’t what I expected to find, but man it hit the nail on the head and explained the healing I felt.
For those who deal with people like me , and other Virgos, I’m betting could relate.
For all of us comedians who hide behind the laughs and partying…
Get you some Agrimony
is the remedy for people who keep their troubles hidden under a mask of pleasure and happiness. The sad clown masking inner hurt by being the life and soul of the party is an Agrimony archetype. Friends are often the last to know that anything is wrong in the Agrimony person’s life.
Sometimes Agrimony people turn to drink or drugs to help them stay ‘happy’. They tend not to like being alone: the mask slips when there is no company. They seek out friends, parties and bright lights. Only at night when they are alone with their thoughts will the mental torture they have repressed come back to haunt them.
Agrimony helps us come to terms with the darker side of our lives and personalities, so that we can become more rounded human beings. We won’t lose our sense of humour or our ability to get through the day, but will find that laughing at our troubles dispels them rather than hides them. As a mood remedy, Agrimony helps anyone who is trying not to face a trouble and using jokes and false smiles to avoid a painful reality.
Dr Bach’s description
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.
