Vervain Bach Flower Remedy: For over-enthusiasm
The Vervain flower remedy is for those who can be overly enthusiastic about an idea or task, they become all consumed by it which can lead to stress, tension and burn out. They get so enthused by an idea, they want to give 150% and try to convert others to their cause. Vervain people can often be incensed by injustices, passionate about protesting for what they believe is right. They can be impulsive, idealistic and always on the go. They can also be irritable or nervous when things don’t go completely as planned.
Although these character traits can be positive at many times, Vervain people tend to be always on the go and unable to let themselves rest which can lead to stress, tension and burnt out. Their fanatical nature and wish to convert people to the cause can also be a bit much for some people so learning to slow down and let others go their own path is important. Built up tension can lead to headaches, migraines, muscle tension or pain behind the eyes.
In the positive state, the Vervain flower remedy will help people to slow down and use the appropriate amount of energy for a task. It will help them to understand other people’s boundaries and respect others’ thoughts and ideas, without trying to convert them to theirs.

Vervain and Stress
It's no secret that stress can take a toll on your health, but did you know that it can also weaken your immune system? When you're under stress, your body releases hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones are part of the "fight or flight" response, which gives you the energy and strength you need to deal with a threat. However, when the stress response is constantly activated, it can wear down your body's defences, making you more susceptible to infections and illness. It’s important to allow your body to rest. If you’re always on the go, stressed and wound up, perhaps try the Vervain flower remedy to help you learn when to take a break. Your immune system will thank you for it.
