Hornbeam (Bach Flower Remedy) is one of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies.

Bach flower remedies are selected based on the emotions a person is experiencing at the particular point in time at which he or she uses the remedies.

Hornbeam may be appropriate when some or all of the following characteristics apply:

  • mental tiredness at the thought of tasks ahead
  • feeling more tired when having to get up than when going to bed after a long day.

Some people experience this type of feeling in the context of difficulty motivating themselves to begin a task such as revising for a test or exam, going to the gym (even if they know that they enjoy it when they actually get there). The essence of the indication for this remedy is that it is the thought of something, or doing something, that is tiring - as opposed to the activity itself.

The hornbeam Bach flower remedy is categorized in the 'uncertainty' group together with cerato, scleranthus, gentian, gorse and wild oat.

Many books about Bach Flower Remedies suggest that most people can benefit from them at some times and/or during certain types of circumstances. The main question at any particular time is which of the remedies is appropriate for the specific person (or animal) at that time, remembering that the choice need not be of just one remedy. Although it is possible to use only one remedy at a time, a small group of remedies is often selected and used together.
