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

For those who are struggling and fighting strongly to get well, or in connection with the affairs of their daily life. They will go on trying one thing after another, though their case may seem hopeless. They will fight on. They are discontented with themselves if illness interferes with their duties or helping others. They are brave people, fighting against great difficulties, without loss of hope or effort.

Indication: Fighter who struggles regardless 

Brave people who fight all adverse situations and illnesses can reach Oak state. They might get tired and discontented with life situations that do not get resolved even after trying hard. Such people never rest till they are completely exhausted. They are reliable hence they carry the burden of duty to great extents. But such a nature leads to frustration. The remedy helps them to stay strong even when the situations are not in their favour. It helps them to create a balance.

Empowering Affirmations

I am strong and energetic.

I can let go and relax.

Bach Remedies for Animals

Oak animals show a lot of resilience and resistance when they are ill. When forced to rest, they try to resist and repeatedly attempt to get up and walk around, no matter how weak they feel. They will normally not complain, but can show signs of tiredness and exhaustion. Oak animals are calm, steady rather than being excitable which can help spot an oak in them.
