The wild rose, sometimes called dog rose, is a climbing shrub that is found throughout North America. Its flowers range from white to dark pink, although most are light pink. Flowers then develop into orange-colored fruits.
Edward Bach, a British homeopath, developed Bach flower essences or “remedies” in the 1930s. Flower essences are based on the idea that different flowers have different properties that can affect emotional states. Wild rose as a Bach flower essence is used to help people who are feeling apathetic or who lack purpose.
Wild rose essence can help if you:
- Don’t feel excited by much that life offers
- Are resigned to your current condition
- Lack excitement or pleasure in your life
Like any flower essence, wild rose can be used with other essences to better address various emotional states. For example, taking it with gorse can help you overcome apathy related to despair. Combining it with willow can help you address feelings of self-pity that get in the way of taking action.
At The Flower Apothecary, we create blends of flower essences that are designed to work in conjunction with each other to meet a variety of needs.
