Oak Bach Flower Remedy people are normally brave, strong and reliable; they need Oak when their inner strength wanes and fatigue takes over. They keep going, whatever happens, ignoring their tiredness. Driven by a strong sense of duty, they are helpful to others, conscientious and reliable. They are patient, sometimes plodding, and will not allow themselves to relax if there is work to be done; instead they struggle on obstinately when over-tired.
The resultant loss of innate strength may lead to depression, frustration and other stress symptoms. These people have a sense of failure when ill but are ceaseless in their efforts to recover.
Positive potential Oak people are normally strong, often the mainstay of their family or working group. They possess enormous endurance, persistence, patience and reserves of energy, and can stand up to a good deal of stress. Oak restores their energy and helps them to recognise the need to take time off to relax and look after themselves as well as their duties.
Once the Bach Flower Remedy or combination of remedies have been chosen, take two drops in a cup of water and sip at intervals, or two drops of each chosen remedy in 30ml bottle of mineral water and from this take four drops four times a day until relief is obtained. It’s quite safe to take these as often as needed. Hold the dose in the mouth for a few moments before swallowing.
Drops can be added to a baby’s bottle or child’s fruit juice.

These are an important part of the healing process and are only temporary.
