Group VI - Despondency or Despair
Crab Apple is seen as the cleansing remedy that should be used when: you have a feeling of self-loathing; have disgust of your own image in the mirror; or when you have an aversion to food, bodily functions, sex or disease. An intense feeling of being dirty dominates and there is a strong urge to release yourself from it.
The Bach flower Crab Apple can help you when you have a persistent feeling that you should wash yourself, because you’re sure that you’re soiled in some way or another. It can be used when you’re excessively tidy in your home, or if you feel everything should be in the right place - and you are bothered when it’s not like that. It is also useful for those who are pretty demanding about hygiene in general, who perhaps scour the cleanliness of a knife and fork in a restaurant before eating with it …
Bach flower Crab Apple remedy helps when your thoughts are exclusively fixated on mundane detail instead of considering more important things. For example: someone could be bothered more about a skin irritation rather than an inoperable tumour. This Bach flower helps to put things into their true proportions.
This remedy is used for cleaning on all levels. For those who have the feeling that something is impure in themselves. This is more often than not a detail, something that’s not so important, but that is considered important to them. For those who dismiss or neglect a serious disease or illness because they are fixated on a detail. These people long to be freed from what they think is impure, what they think is important to be fulfilled. Despondency arises when the treatment doesn’t bring the results hoped for.
