Extract from The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies, by Dr. Edward Bach

Those who are liable to times of gloom, or even despair, as though a cold dark cloud overshadowed them and hid the light and the joy of life. It may not be possible to give any reason or explanation for such attacks. Under these conditions it is almost impossible to appear happy or cheerful.

Indication: ­­­­­For deep depression and gloom

Mustard type depression is like the descent of a dark cloud that blocks out the light and joy of life. Sufferers cannot explain why they feel the way they feel. Often they may have everything to live for and be happy about, yet for some unknown reason they feel tearful and gloomy. Nothing seems to help. There may be momentary lifting of mood but they may again go back there. 

Empowering Affirmations

I am happy and full of life.

I have calmness and peace of mind.
