Aspen Bach Flower: For Anxiety & Uneasiness

The Aspen Bach flower remedy is for those who feel on edge but there’s no known reason. People who need Aspen have a general sense of uneasiness and of being on edge and unexplainable fears that haunt them day and night. They are very sensitive to unconscious anxieties and other planes of consciousness. Some people describe this anxiety as quite eerie almost like goose bumps or hair standing on end. These people feel very afraid that something bad will happen, but they don’t know what or why.

There are two primary Bach flower remedies for anxiety – Aspen which is for unexplained fears, and Mimulus which is for where there is a known fear e.g. health, a fear of the dark etc. As there’s no specific reason for their fears, Aspen people find it difficult to talk about them. Children are often afflicted by this negative state and may ask for a light to be kept on or a door to be kept open.

The Aspen symptoms can appear on a spectrum – from a low level feeling of uneasiness to sheer terror and panic.  

In the positive state, the remedy can help fearlessness and less apprehension.

What are Bach flower remedies?

Bach flower remedies are a form of alternative medicine that uses diluted flower extracts to treat various psychological and emotional conditions.

There are 38 different Bach flower remedies, each of which is designed to target a specific emotional state, such as fear, anger, or sadness.
