About Wild Oat, the Bach Flower Remedy
A remedy that may be needed by anyone at some stage of life. This is new – not differentiated according to an individual or particular emotional state, but something much more universal. Wild Oat is an all purpose remedy to use in cases which do not respond to others or when it seems difficult to decide which to give.
Wild Oat is pivotal in the 38 Remedies – it is the only remedy which can help orientate someone towards a true direction in life. To help rediscover the true path in life. Or simply to show where we actually are.
Wild Oat is found throughout Britain and much of Europe. It is common, and yet almost unrecognised. A plant of roadside and track, of hedge, bank and verge. It grows up to 2 metres tall and yet is a fragile grass moved easily by the slightest breeze with none of the strength of a tree. A plant which is seeking to orientate itself.
A re-tuning Remedy, Bach suggests that people try Wild Oat for a week. This idea is of taking a period of time to resonate with the Remedy, to orientate and to realise the path to take.
The primary gesture of Wild Oat is questing, growing upright and upwards. But there is no strong I gesture here – the head bends over and looks back towards the earth. At various times in a life we all stand at the crossroads and wonder which path to take. Wild Oat is for those who remain there at the crossroads, irresolute and undecided.
Wild Oat likes moist ground. It flowers late, towards the end of July. It opens fully only with strong sunlight. When it does open, it is only for a few hours. The combination of weather and full flowering can be quite elusive – it is one of the most difficult Remedies to make.
As Wild Oat seeds fall they spear themselves into the land. The seeds find a protected place for rapid generation. Wild Oat is an opportunist.
Wild Oat people tend to drift into jobs and situations which are uncongenial and increase frustration in life. Sometimes the Wild Oat person appears actually to seek out difficulties in order to show the rest of the world the impossible nature of Fate.
Wild Oat helps us in our fundamental need for a definite purpose in our life. We need to recognise and respond to our life purpose. Our ultimate challenge is in Bach’s language – and the traditional language of the Church Fathers – to realise our Divinity.
This account of this Bach Flower Remedy is based on the book Bach Flower Remedies : Form and Function by Julian Barnard.
