    In a positive Chicory state an individual is able to give freely without the expectation of a return. They are able to respect the individuality of their loved ones without trying to manipulate or change them. In a state of imbalance, an individual needing Chicory might use emotional blackmail, be excessively possessive and needy, expect gratitude for doing things for others they were not asked to do. Chicory is a Bach Flower Essence.

The chicory plant is a member of the dandelion family. A perennial herbaceous plant, its flowers are usually lavender in color but may be light blue, white or pink. There are several varieties of chicory. Some are eaten in salads, others are used as coffee substitutes and still others are raised as food for livestock.

When used as a Bach flower remedy, chicory essence is intended for people can feel needy and act emotionally demanding. They never feel they get enough love and may try to manipulate others to get it. Edward Bach, a British homeopath, developed Bach flower remedies or essences in the 1930s. Every flower has a different healing attribute and those healing attributes can address different emotional states — such as feeling insecure, overwhelmed or sad. Chicory flower essence falls under the category of “overcare for the welfare of others.”
