('Five Flower Formula' bottle shown - All bottles have similar design) Profile Oak FlowerOak Flower Essence:Positive qualities:
Balanced strength, accepting limits, knowing when to surrender.

Patterns of imbalance:
Iron-willed, inflexible; over-striving beyond one's limits.

Oak flower essence addresses many positive masculine soul traits of endurance, strength, and perseverance. These are the admirable qualities of the Mars-like hero, but they become a source of illness and dysfunction when they are not balanced with Venusian grace and gentle surrender.

The Oak personality presses the limits of endurance; such persons are capable of enormous achievement. They are able to truly serve and help others because of their tremendous wellspring of willpower. However, this very strength can also become too rigid the unrelenting demands and expectations which they have for themselves eventually take a toll in the physical health and inner happiness of the soul, until finally the individual is forced by circumstances to acknowledge that he/she is not all-powerful.

Oak flower essence teaches such persons the positive attributes of surrender and acceptance of limitation. Through Oak flower essence, the naturally strong capacities of the soul are balanced with the inner feminine Self, which learns to yield and to receive help from others when necessary.

- from the 'Flower Essence Repertory', by Patricia Kaminsky and Richard Katz. The most comprehensive and user-friendly flower essence book we've found. Highly recommended for any practitioner.
