Chicory (Chicorium intybus)
Chicory people are full of love and care for their families and friends. But they expect to receive love and attention in return, with interest, and feel slighted and unnecessarily hurt if they don’t get all they expect. Their great love can lead them to hold onto their loved ones and try to keep them dependent and close to hand. This may stifle the development of other personalities, or simply drive people away.
When we fall into this state the remedy helps bring out the positive side of Chicory: Love given unconditionally and in freedom.
Dr Bach’s description (from The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies)
Those who are very mindful of the needs of others; they tend to be over-full of care for children, relatives, friends, always finding something that should be put right. They are continually correcting what they consider wrong, and enjoy doing so. They desire that those for whom they care should be near them.
Take 30 ml of cider vinegar and add 2 drops of Bach Flower Remedy to the vinegar and shake well. This solution is now the remedy you should use. To take the remedy do not place the drops onto the tongue as is the usual way of taking remedies, instead, add 4 drops to a glass of mineral water or fruit juice from the refrigerator and take the Remedy that way. If these instructions are followed the remedy will be 0.16%.
