WHO IS THIS REMEDY FOR
The Bach flower Honeysuckle in flower therapy is for those people who live anchored in the past and do not accept the present and live thinking back to the past, without expecting anything from life. They are people who reject everything new, every change. They are nostalgics trapped in a past that no longer exists, unable to move forward and would just like to escape from the present to return to live in a past, eventually idealized, preventing themselves from moving towards the future.
These people are not necessarily old people who remember "the good old days" but also young people who, for example, yearn for a love that no longer exists.
Edward Bach describes a Honeysuckle person in this way «For those who live a lot in the past which was perhaps a time of great happiness or in the memory of a lost friend or of unrealized ambitions. They do not expect to find still a happiness similar to that already experienced ».(1)

FLOWERING PERIOD AND BOTANICAL CHARACTERISTICS
It is possible to find the plant in bloom in spring - summer (May - July).It is a shrub with sarmentose branches that reaches up to six meters in height with oval, obtuse, stalkless and shiny leaves. The leaves of the upper part of the plant are particular as they remain welded together.
The flowers are yellowish-white, red along the tube gathered in whorls surrounded by bracts. The flowers are very fragrant, especially at night and perhaps it is for this reason that Bach chose this plant for the nostalgic, as evening and night are the time of day when one lets oneself go to memories.Note
