    Sweet Chestnut

    Expands potential to trust in a positive outcome despite being in a state of deep mental despair. Sweet Chestnut can be found in Crisis Intervention Flower Essence.


    An individual in a negative Sweet Chestnut state may feel hopeless despair and intense internal suffering. They may feel alone and backed up against a wall in the face of ruin with nowhere to go. In its negative manifestation, this is perhaps one of the most intensely emotional states. One may feel their very soul is damaged. However, if an individual can work through it, it can initiate very transformative stages of development. Sweet Chestnut is a Bach Flower Essence.


    On a personal note: I think of the song “I Will Survive”.

Sweet chestnut trees can grow to massive sizes, reaching higher than 100 feet. These deciduous trees are found in southern Europe, western Asia and North Africa, and can live for more than 600 years, producing long, yellow flowers.

According to the Bach Centre, when used as a flower essence, sweet chestnut flower essence is intended for people who “have reached the limits of endurance” and who have “explored all avenues and see no way out of their difficulties.” Edward Bach, a British homeopath, developed his system of Bach flower essences, or remedies, in the 1930s. The idea is that every flower has its unique essence and that these essences can overcome negative emotional states.

Like other flower essences, chestnut flower essence can be combined with others to address certain conditions. For example, using it with willow can help you move on from setbacks, while using it with cerato can help you feel more confident about your decisions. At The Flower Apothecary, we create unique blends of flower essences to help you address all of life’s challenges.;
