('Five Flower Formula' bottle shown - All bottles have similar design) Profile Gentian FlowerGentian Flower Essence:Positive qualities:
Perseverance, confidence; faith to continue despite apparent setbacks.

Patterns of imbalance:
Discouragement after a setback; doubt.

The soul can become strong and vibrant only by becoming more resilient. Obstacles and problems test the soul's ability to respond, and to trust in the unfoldment of life. Those in need of Gentian flower essence become too easily discouraged and disheartened when problems and setbacks occur. Such souls view impediments as insurmountable problems, and are unable to discover solutions.

The individual needs to learn that such vexing situations occur because they are exactly those lessons which are needed for growth and strength. Gentian flower essence gives encouragement, especially helping the soul to shift its mental perspective and see the long view. The doubting and skeptical qualities which the soul harbors are gradually transformed into deeper faith. Gentian flower essence helps the soul to acquire great inner fortitude and unwavering trust in the outcome of life events.

- from the 'Flower Essence Repertory', by Patricia Kaminsky and Richard Katz. The most comprehensive and user-friendly flower essence book we've found. Highly recommended for any practitioner.
