Nice attractive faces of flowers of a gubastik by all means will raise a smile on your face. It was noticed also by the English doctor Edward Bach who developed a technique of psychocorrection of an emotional condition of the person by means of flower essences. But at first we will get acquainted with a smiling flower - gubastiky.

The patrimonial name mimulyus comes from Latin “mimus“ - the actor, the clown, the mime that also reflects appearance of flowers. Rod Mimulyus contains about 150 species of grassy plants, is more often than one-year. In nature they are widespread in a temperate climate worldwide, except Europe. The majority of types grow in damp places. But the types living in the desert and on highlands meet.

In culture the most widespread look - mimulyus hybrid, or tiger, height of a plant is about 25 cm. Today the set of hybrids and grades with large, to 6 - 8 cm in the diameter, bright flowers is removed.

Gubastiki - rather unpretentious plants. Prefer light places, but not bad feel also in a penumbra. That they proved to be in all the beauty, they need to be provided with a friable, fertile soil, to water and feed up regularly.

Mimulyusa in two calling since June to the cold weather blossom, can transfer fall of temperature to - 3 degrees. After the first wave of their blossoming it is necessary to tonsure and feed up shortly. Weeks through two they will begin to let grow new escapes which soon blossom.

Having admired a variety of the blossoming gubastik, having received at the same time a charge of positive emotions, you will understand why Edward Bach first of all paid attention to these plants.

Future immunologist, the bacteriologist, the homeopathist in 1886 in Great Britain in the founder`s family was born. The father hoped that the son will continue his business, but Edward, weak from the birth, dreamed of medicine. Having graduated with honors from medical faculty, he practised medicine and scientific researches.

Doctor Bach developed a unique method of flower therapy at the beginning of the 20th century. He was convinced that negative emotions of the person are the reasons of diseases and that in the person healing mechanisms are put. Bach devoted to awakening of these mechanisms of self-control of an organism the researches.

So it happened that the first three plants to which he paid attention were gubastik, the touchy person and repeshok. Bach noticed that energy of plants influences a state of mind of the person. He used flower infusions for psychocorrection. For example, the use of infusion of a gubastik promotes disposal of alarm, fear, uncertainty in the forces.
