Olive is the Remedy for everybody who has reached a final stage of exhaustion of mind and body, as if their whole vitality has melted completely away. This flower gives a life-force that relies not only on our personal powers. It helps us to recover from long-lasting and agonising illness. It should be taken into account, however, that this Remedy will not necessarily give us a flush of energy and vitality. It might happen that we just start sleeping more and deeper, which will support our recovery over time. We need to be able to indulge in the need for complete rest and recovery.
Those who have suffered much mentally or physically and are so exhausted and weary that they feel they have no more strength to make any effort. Daily life is hard work for them, without pleasure.
