ALLES over Bachbloesems
All that I could find, written by Bach about Olive has been collected here. Bach regarded the text from "The Twelve Healers & Other Remedies" (1936) as the final and simple version.
Bach gooide de oudere versies van de twaalf genezers weg en verving ze steeds door de nieuwere, naarmate hij meer remedies ontdekte. De oudere versies zijn hier opgenomen met de bedoeling de ontwikkeling te kunnen bestuderen.
Gebruik voor het selecteren van een remedie a.u.b. "De Twaalf Genezers & Andere Remedies" uit 1936, zoals Bach bedoeld heeft.

Those who have suffered much mentally or physically and are so exhausted and weary that they feel they have no more strength to make any effort. Daily life is hard work for them, without pleasure.

Juli 1934: The Twelve Healers & Seven Helpers (Collected Writings, pg 54/79)


For those who are pale, worn-out and exhausted, perhaps after much worry, illness, grief, or some long struggle. In every way they are very tired and feel as if they had no more strength to fight on, and at times hardly know how to keep going. They may depend very much on others for help.
In some, the skin is very dry and may be wrinkled.

If the patient does not improve when what seems the right one of the Healers has been given, there are seven more remedies to prepare the way
If [the patient is] pale, either OLIVE, GORSE, or OAK will be needed. If High-coloured, VINE, HEATHER or ROCK-WATER.

For those who want to prepare their own stock remedies, the method is given below and, following, the English and botanical names of the plants and the situations where they may be found.
Olive ... Olea europaea
These plants are in flower in May
Olive. Italy and other countries.
