Holly Flower Essence


  • null


    Magnifies the potential for universal love; divine love. Holly can be found in Cool & Collected and Pure Love Flower Essences.


    In a positive Holly state, this individual will radiate love and inner harmony. They will want for others what they want for themselves. In a state of imbalance, an individual needing Holly may feel hateful, suspicious, jealous and revengeful. They may become easily enraged and act explosively. Holly is a Bach Flower Essence.


    On a personal note: I tend to think of Bono from U2, he reflects someone in a positive Holly state. I also think John Lennon was imagining a Holly state for the world when he sang “Imagine”.

Holly plants come in nearly 500 different species and are found throughout the world. The plants come in three major categories: trees, shrubs and climbing plants. The plants have either evergreen or deciduous leaves and small white flowers. Their fruit is red.

According to the Bach Centre, when used as a flower essence, holly essence is intended for people who are experiencing feelings of jealousy, envy, revenge and suspicion. Edward Bach was a British homeopath who developed Bach flower essences (sometimes called “remedies”) in the 1930s. The idea behind flower essences is that every flower has a different essence and these essences can offset and overcome negative emotional states.

Holy essence can help if you’re feeling:

  • Jealous, distrustful, suspicious of others
  • Angry and explosive due to envy and jealousy
  • Vengeful or hateful toward others

Like any flower essence, holly can be used with other essences to better address different emotional states. For example, using it with impatiens essence can help you handle anger that stems from impatience or having to wait on others, while using it with cherry plum can help you keep anger from growing out of control.

At The Flower Apothecary, we create blends of different flower essences that are thoughtfully designed to work in harmony with each other.
