  • Keywords: Depression overwhelmed by responsibilities, despondent, exhausted

  • Animal/Pet indication:  Overwhelmed by a sense of responsibility from a temporary circumstance, abandoning their litter


The Elm personality usually shows itself in the positive form - in the person of a "take charge, get it all done" attitude and behaviour. These people are generally of above average intelligence and ability, and responsibility - and others depend upon them for leadership and guidance.


Unfortunately, Elm personalities often put aside their own needs for those of the greater good - and this can lead to a state of near breakdown. They have forgotten that each of us has a responsibility to care for ourselves first, and that we must take care not to exceed our physical or emotional limits.

Those in need of treatment with this Bach Flower Remedy will suddenly feel themselves unable to cope. A task which would have been easy just a few days ago now seems overwhelming, and beyond their capabilities.


Often, this negative state is the result of increasing professional or personal pressure coinciding with a temporary physical weakness. The "breakdown" is the body is attempting to tell the person to "take a time out."


How should flower essences be taken?

For chronic problems, flower essences should be taken 4 times per day - including upon awakening and at bedtime. You need only 4 drops under the tongue each time.

For immediate effect in crisis situations, take 4 drops as needed, but not less than 8 drops per day. Alternatively, you can add 6 drops to a cup of mineral water and sip throughout the day.

Babies ( consult your Doctor) and pets can be treated by placing the drops in water as above.
Flower Essences should be taken on an empty stomach - at least 30-60 minutes before or after eating. Therefore , it is not advisable to add the drops to food.

ELM-Bach Flower Remedy

  • "Those who are doing good work, are following the calling of their life
    and who hope to do something of importance, and this often for the
    benefit of humanity. At times there may be periods of depression
    when they feel that the task they have undertaken is too difficult, and
    not within the power of a human being."

    From the Twelve Healers & Other Remedies - By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )

  • ....Because the ELM person's self-esteem is so firmly rooted in fulfilling his or her responsibilities, the ego takes a major blow when he or she cannot carry on.
