Olive is for those who are exhausted in body and mind after a long period of strain through personal difficulties, an intense period of study or work, a long illness, or nursing someone else for a long time. It is a good essence for convalescence.
Olive is characterized by exhaustion to the point of tears, when all reserves of strength and energy have run out. Everything is an effort; one tires easily, and life lacks zest. Sufferers no longer enjoy their work or the leisure activities in which they formerly took pleasure.
Sufferers find they need a lot of sleep. As a result of being over tired the body may be functioning below par.
The positive potential of Olive is restoration of strength, vitality, and interest in life. Positive Olive people no longer exhaust their own reserves of strength but listen to their inner guidance and recognize the needs of their body. They are able to maintain their peace of mind even when forced to remain inactive.
