Gorse is an evergreen shrub that grows up to 10 feet tall. It produces yellow flowers throughout the year, particularly during the spring, that have a coconut scent. Gorse is found throughout Europe, North and South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
According to the Bach Centre, when used as a flower essence, gorse is “the remedy for people who have given up belief and hope.” British homeopath Edward Bach developed his system of Bach flower essences, or remedies, in the 1930s. The idea behind flower essences is that every flower has its unique qualities and that inhaling, consuming or interacting with these essences can change your mood, outlook and even behavior.
Like all flower essences, gorse flower essence can be combined with others to better target certain conditions. For example, using gorse with sweet chestnut can help you overcome feelings of despair; using with larch can help you feel more confident. We create unique blends of flower essences at The Flower Apothecary to help you overcome negative mood states and make the most out of every day.
