Crab Apple is one of the mostŚćinteresting of the Bach Flower Essences, because it is used to treat both the inner and the outer self. Individuals in the negative Crab Apple State are focused so intently on order, purity, and perfection within themselves and their immediate environment, that they are quite often unable to see the larger picture. These people are prime examples of “Not being able to see the forest for the trees.” Once a detail that is “off” captures their attention, they can think of little else until they correct that detail. Their desire for cleanliness pushes those in the extreme negative Crab Apple state to exhibit the kinds of behaviours that would seem bizarre to others. For instance, they may wash their hands every few minutes, or take 6 showers in a single day. This overwhelming desire for purity makes those in need of this Bach flower remedy especially wary of insects, foods that have been in the refrigerator too long, and all kinds of infections. They are first in line for preventative measures when a new virus is announced. Those in an intense positive Crab Apple state are often healers – able to absorb, filter, and transform dark forces and blocked energies in others. People with that kind of energy are rare, but all persons in the positive Crab Apple state can shareŚćpositive energiesŚćwith those around them. On the physical level, Crab Apple, often combined with Pine, has long been used to treat skin disorders. It can be added to bath water or used as a compress. Combined with lotion, it is often used to treat wounds. Some Bach Flower Remedy practitioners recommend Crab Apple to aid in recovery from an incipient cold, or to counter-act the side effects of pharmaceuticals. It is also recommended to overcome the effects of a hangover. Because Bach Flower practitioners are continuously subjected to the energies of their patients, some take Crab Apple and Walnut between sessions to lessen the effect on their own energies. Along with aiding humans in their quest for happiness, this Bach Flower Remedy is used in combination with Feel5iveŚćto treat pest infested plants or plants that have been re-potted and need a little help getting re-established.
