The uses of Holly are easy to remember because you only have to think of its hard prickly leaves brushing the skin and you enter the area of emotions connected to Holly. It is almost as if the Holy folk have the leaves on the inside of their bodies, causing them pain which they express as jealousy, envy, hatred, revenge and suspicion.   Bach wrote of this remedy, it is “for the different forms of vexation.” A rather old fashioned phrase but very clear and insightful for vexation covers a multitude of inner pain such as grief, unhappiness, displeasure, discomfort, botheration, agony, torture. Almost as if you were lying on a bed of holly leaves.

Holly folk are so at pains with themselves that they find it very difficult, if not impossible, to be at ease with others. Those in need of holly have a closed heart, they do not express their love for life in a positive manner. Bach said, ‘holly opens the heart and unites us with divine love.’
