"For those who feel that they have not sufficient strength, mentally or physically, to carry the burden of life placed upon them; the affairs of every day seem too much for them to accomplish, though they generally succeed in fulfilling their task. For those who believe that some part, of mind or body, needs to be strengthened before they can easily fulfill their work." - Dr. Edward Bach

Animal/pet indication: Lethargy or lack of enthusiasm to go anywhere, but once engaged in an activity or game is fully involved
For lethargy or lack of enthusiasm to go anywhere, it remedies weakness and inability to cope because of tiredness. Animals who are in need of Hornbeam lack the “get up and go” quality (especially in dogs) when they are required to perform or will be going somewhere following a period of inactivity. Signs include an animal that is constantly wanting to be picked up; whether after illness or simply because they are used to it.
Hornbeam combined with Olive is recommended when animals are tired and lethargic, especially if their reason for not wanting to do much is uncertain to the owner.
