Mimulus (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.
Mimulus may be appropriate when some or all of the following characteristics apply:
- anxieties and fears of known cause
- shy and retiring personalities
The mimulus Bach flower remedy is categorized in the group of remedies for 'fear' and is appropriate both for help overcoming specific fears, such as fears of flying, spiders, heights, exams, as well as for timid personalities generally. Other remedies in this group include aspen, rock rose, cherry plum and red chestnut.
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.
