Centaury (Centaurium Unbellatum)
Centaury is for people who find it hard to say no. They let themselves be imposed on and even bullied by others. They are usually timid, quiet, and rather passive, with little strength of will. Anxious to please, they give in to others out of subservience rather than willing co-operation. Although dissatisfied with this state of affairs, they will deny their own wishes or vocation rather than risk a confrontation. Anxious to 'do the right thing', they are easily influenced by what other people dictate.
Drained by others and out of touch with their own assertiveness, they tend to lack energy and tire easily.
The positive potential of Centaury is shown in people who serve willingly and unobtrusively, but without denying their own needs. They can express and defend their own opinions and mix well in company. Above all, they are in touch with what they want and can now follow their own path with determination and energy, unhampered by the opinions of 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.
