The Bach flower Gorse is indicated in flower therapy for those people who have now lost hope and who, unlike the Gentians, are convinced that there is nothing more to be done for them and they no longer have any certainty. They are people who have lost the will to live because they are overwhelmed by the adversities of life, by problems or due to illness, or for work or for personal matters, so much so that they are now tired and indifferent and convinced that there is no longer any hope of getting out of the situation. in which they are located.

The Gorse person allows himself to be treated only to silence those around him because he no longer has the strength to fight. It is therefore the remedy for those who have now thrown in the towel because after having experimented with countless ways to get out of a situation and not having found a light to cling to, they are now convinced that there are no ways out.

He is a taciturn, sulky person, closed in on himself, with a tired and detached attitude, always sad.

Edward Bach gives the following description of a Gorse person: “For cases of great despair. These people have given up on the idea that something can still be done for them. Behind persuasion or to please others, they can undergo various treatments, but at the same time they affirm with conviction to those around them that there is very little hope of improvement ».(1)


The remedy of Bach Gorse flowers in flower therapy serves to restore hope to those who have lost it. It helps to accept the different situations in the right perspective, giving the hope of a possible positive evolution, reducing despair and anger.

It is possible to find the plant in bloom in the summer.

L'Ulex europaeus is an evergreen shrub plant, up to 3 m high, which forms dense, almost impenetrable thorny bushes. It is typical of temperate climate regions and is considered to all intents and purposes an invasive species.

It has intense green stems, striated, dense and rigid, covered with leaves reduced to thorns up to 3 cm long in tripartite which alternate with thorns which are twigs or pointed foliar petioles.

The flowers of the gorse are hermaphrodites of an intense yellow color, perfumed and carried by peduncles that grow solitary at the axil of the leaves, about 2 cm long with the hairy calyx and the corolla almost included in the calyx formed by two yellow and hairy valves.

The fruit is a hairy, short and swollen legume that bursts when ripe, releasing the seeds.

(1) Taken from The Twelve Healers and other remedies by E. Bach

"Courage breaks down the wall of fear ... hope opens the way to the impossible."
This phrase by Samuele Lion can be one of Dr. Bach's calling cards for floral remedies, the Rock Rose remedy makes us find courage again, as the Gorse remedy opens us to hope, Mimulus to trust ... it's that simple not to seem real. Is it possible that there is a natural remedy that makes us become brave or hopeful or confident? Why not? Why are simple things often deemed ineffective?

Nature shows us that everything is simple, Dr. Bach himself said "May the simplicity of this method not induce you not to use it, because the more your investigations continue, the more you will realize the simplicity of all Creation.

Sometimes people tell me not to "believe" in flower remedies, I always answer that "Bach flowers" are not a religion, you don't need to "believe" in flowers just try them, and the wonderful thing is that they work even if you don't believe in them!

Properties and benefits of the Bach Gorse flower

The benefits of the Bach Gorse flower are about finding strength and the courage to get out of a difficult situation like this. It helps to take a real step out of the situation, in any direction. It is certainly better to let yourself be carried away by the events of life and allow external situations to decide.

With the Bach flower Gorse you learn a downsizing the problems, distinguishing those that are really arduous and difficult (but still not impossible to overcome) from those that require much less effort than you actually think.

Taking the Bach flower improves the mood, helps to see the new path as a real opportunity and no longer as something to do just to make others happy. He stops acting passively but really works hard to carry out the decisions he made.

It gives a renewed joy of living, especially if the despondency was born from an illness that is now being overcome. Give hope not in the miracle but in one's own strength, in the ability to find the solution to the situation, even if it is difficult. Sometimes it is also recommended to those who have fallen into the deepest despair due to a serious bereavement.

Who is Gorse suitable for?

It is suitable for those people who have lost hope. From the outside it is not easy to notice because in any case you can see that they are trying to take new paths, it seems that they are making attempts. In reality, they do it only because they let themselves be carried away by others, they do it to comply with the requests of others, such as those of a partner who wants to see the other get out of a difficult situation. The Gorse personality happens to not realize at first that he has lost hope, but sooner or later this awareness comes out.

This is a behavior that comes to light in various fields. From the economic one to the love one, from that of health to that of overcoming a more or less serious problem. The Gorse personality lets itself be persuaded by others but if we look closely at their behavior we realize that they are not moved by any warrior spirit. They already start with the idea that they are destined to be defeated and disappointed this time too.

They need the Gorse flower therapy remedy those who feel desperate, fallen into a mental abyss. The fact that every time they try to follow the paths that others indicate, it does not help. Starting from the premise of losing, it is very likely that this is the only result towards which they are heading and this does nothing but cause further despair.

Physical symptoms of the Gorse personality

There are no particular physical symptoms but a careful look can recognize in Gorse a strong depressive state and also a sense of fatigue.

Gorse, Bach flowers, to find hope

I don't want to start over because there is no solution, only desperation.

Gorse is a very resistant shrub, when cut it invigorates in a short time and better than before. This resistance is also noticeable in the thorns that defend the plant. The remedy is for people who they have lost hope and they gave up and they cultivate anger for not having solved problems.

Reading the characteristics of Bach flowers, we can see a clear correlation between flowers and sensitive personalities, in reality the Gorse subject does not seem to exist! That is, it is very rare and it is one transitory state which can last over time. It is a person who has had a long journey in which he worked and fought, but he did not make it so all that hope left room for despair. He is in a condition where nothing can solve the situation e feel anger being in a context in which he lives. For example: I have tried several ineffective therapies and do not expect success for another therapy. I don't want to try anymore!

So the subject Gorse gives up because he has seen himself as a loser and now has one made angry.

Write a comment on the article entitled gorse the Bach flower

thanks for the service. It was a friend who gave me the original vial. I take the drops as they are in their pure state so that they can be diluted, I'll try. I am 68 years old I am on the path of depression but still not at the full blown stage. It doesn't take much to get my spirits back. But age, diseases, sometimes loneliness do damage. I don't believe much in the miracles of herbs, among other things, I have always been treated with homeopathy and have been attending the Steinerian center in Roncegno for several years but always skeptical. Even more towards traditional medicine of course! I trust only in surgery, thank you - giancarlo paggiaro
