What Does Agrimony Help With...
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 restlessness 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 )
More Insights Into Agrimony...
"Agrimony helps you to feel and express your true feelings and emotions and build an authentic relationship with yourself and with others"
“Agrimony is all about your relationship with yourself. If you need Agrimony, you might find it challenging to express, or even feel, your own difficult emotions. Instead, it feels easier and more pleasant to simply ignore these complex inner difficulties and so they get bottled up and go unexpressed. If you’re in need of Agrimony you’re probably a natural peacekeeper and lover of harmony, but if you ignore or suppress your emotional self too much it can create a lot of inner tension. Agrimony helps you to feel and express your true feelings and emotions and build an authentic relationship with yourself and with others.” Sam Cremnitz - Crystal Herbs
“The keynote for Agrimony is how comfortable you are with speaking honestly about your emotions. People who would benefit from Agrimony tend to talk on a superficial level instead of expressing their emotional depth. It’s an excellent essence for anyone who puts on a social mask to fit in, be polite or avoid conflict. I think of Agrimony as the remedy for authenticity – setting you free to express your true thoughts and emotions without worrying what anybody else is thinking.” Jackie Stewart - Crystal Herbs
"Agrimony characters are quite sensitive by nature and have a desire for harmony. Discord and tension among those around them cause them such distress that they often soft-pedal for the sake of peace, and sometimes even make sacrifices. They are kind to those around them in the hope that others will in turn be kind to them." The Encyclopedia of Bach Flower Therapy by Mechthild Scheffer
"Quite specifically peace will come from an acceptance and understanding of our individual soul's purpose within life on earth: it is this which the Agrimony type finds hard to accept. To the Agrimony person realities do not stack up. They see and experience the pain of the world (that is their torment) but they feel themselves inadequate for the task of reconciling that pain with faith in life. Rather than face the problem they turn the matter aside with a play of humour. Or they seek to forget themselves with drink or drugs; there is a desire to escape from life." Bach Flower Remedies Form & Function by Julian Barnard
"The Agrimony type are peace loving people who are distressed by quarrels and arguments. Rather than inflict their troubles upon others, they often make light of their difficulties. At night when they retire, they are often restless, and their churning thoughts are the cause of insomnia and inquietude. During an illness, the AGRIMONY person may well make jokes with those around him or attending him; he is inclined to make light of his discomfort and to appear cheerful and happy." Illustrated Handbook of the Bach Flower Remedies by Philip Chancellor
