('Five Flower Formula' bottle shown - All bottles have similar design) Profile Red Chestnut FlowerRed Chestnut Flower Essence:Positive qualities:
Caring for others with calm, inner peace, trust in the unfolding of life events.

Patterns of imbalance:
Obsessive fear and worry for well-being of others, fearful anticipation of problems for others.

To genuinely care for another is a great virtue of the human soul. But this caring can cross the boundary of healthy compassion and turn instead into negative worry and anxiety for another. This is particularly true in a family system or other close relationship, when a parent or spouse is too closely identified with its role of caretaker, and thus becomes unconsciously enmeshed in the psychic space of another.

Red Chestnut flower essence particularly addresses the mental imbalances which this condition produces. It shows the soul how worry and concern drain the individual of positive vital energy, and does little to help heal the actual situation. When the soul pulls back into its own sphere of consciousness it can effectively anchor itself and become and agent for real healing. The greatest of healing gifts which one can bestow upon another is the ability to radiate calm, loving thoughts. This unconditional regard for another’s welfare is the great gift of Red Chestnut flower essence.

- 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.
