Heather (Calluna Vulgaris)
Heather is indicated for those who are preoccupied with their own situation or ailments and unable to enter into genuine two way communication with others. They drive others away by their extreme neediness. They exaggerate their symptoms, or make mountains out of molehills. They are compulsive talkers, needing an audience and will buttonhole people in order to talk in lengthy detail about themselves. They tend to speak rapidly, close into the listener's face.
They dislike being alone but fail to realise that they are often avoided because they sap other people's vitality and show no interest in other people's problems.
The positive potential of Heather is the good listener who is generous in helping others, selfless and understanding of other people's problems. Positive Heather people are able to put their own suffering to good use by empathising with others.
For multiple use, add two drops to a 30ml mixing bottle (you may combine up to seven remedies in this bottle), top up with mineral water and take four drops at least four times a day.
If neccessary, the Bach Original Flower Remedies can be dropped neat onto the tongue, or rubbed onto the lips, behind the ears, or on the temples and wrists.
You can take Bach Original Flower Remedies as often as you want. If you are in a mood or a bit of a crisis, you only may need one dose, but if you've been feeling the same way for some time you can take them as long as you need to.
