Gentian Flower Essence

    In the positive state, an individual can process minor setbacks and still proceed to get to the goal. They understand there are solutions for problems. In a state of imbalance, an individual needing Gentian can be easily discouraged by unexpected difficulties. They can be so pessimistic that even a small setback may have a distressing effect on them. Gentian is a Bach Flower Essence.

    On a personal note: If positive Gentian could sing, it might sing “Lost” by Coldplay.

Gentian Flower Essence: For Helping You Overcome Negative Thinking

Gentian plants are flowering plants that grow in many different parts of the world. They come in about 400 varieties and are known for their large, trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of blue.

Edward Bach, a British homeopath, developed the ideas behind Bach flower essences (also known as “remedies”) more than 80 years ago. According to Bach, each flower essence contains different properties which can impact how you feel, both physically and emotionally.

Gentian flower essence can be helpful if you:

  • Have recently suffered setbacks and feel discouraged about your future
  • Tend to be pessimistic in your thinking
  • Struggle with emotional resilience

Gentian flower essence can be used with other essences to better address different emotional states. For example, combining it with willow can help you move on from a setback and combining it with clematis can help you turn your thoughts to the future instead of the past.

At The Flower Apothecary, we create blends of flower essences that work in harmony to meet your specific emotional needs.
