The impatiens is a flowering herb that grows throughout North America, Africa, Europe and Asia. Its flowers come in a variety of colors including coral, pink, purple, red, white and yellow.
According to the Bach Centre, when used as a flower essence, impatiens is “the remedy for impatience and the frustration and irritability that often go with it.” Impatience can be a temporary state of mind; like when you’re waiting in a long line for your morning latte. Impatience can also be a persistent state of mind. This remedy can help in both situations.
The system of Bach flower essences was developed by British homeopath Edward Bach in the 1930s. He found that every flower has its unique qualities and that inhaling, consuming or interacting with these essences could affect someone’s mood and outlook — and even behavior. People have been relying on flower essences since.
Impatiens flower essence can be used independently or with other essences to address different moods and situations. For example, using it with vine can help you overcome an inflexible attitude, and using it with beech can make you more tolerant. At The Flower Apothecary, we create products with unique blends of flower essences that can help you change your outlook for the better, and to embrace all life has to offer.
