Heather Bach Flower: For self-centredness

Heather is indicated for people who are self-absorbed and have lost their ability to empathise and think of others. In their world, everything revolves around them and their problems and they struggle to listen to other people. We all have moments when we can be a little like this, but some people can have this as a more persistent character trait.

Heather types can often be quite lonely as they push people away by not taking an interest in other’s lives. They also crave attention and dislike being alone. They can monopolise conversation, wanting to talk endlessly about their problems.

The negative state of Heather isn’t always an extrovert chatting away about themselves all the time, this state can also be introverted. It’s more about whether the person has the ability to think of others or think beyond themselves.

Heather can often be described as the state of needy children – and can often be indicated for children who go through phases of self-centredness as they go through different stages of development. In adults, those who need Heather often had a less desirable childhood without affection which leads them to crave attention as an adult.

The positive potential of Heather is to be less self-centred, to think of others and be more willing to listen to others.

More about Bach flower remedies

What are Bach flower remedies?

Bach flower remedies were created in the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach, who was a physician and homeopath before discovering the flower remedy system. He was interested in treated people as a whole rather than looking at a set of physical symptoms and realised he could help cure physical ailments solely through treating their emotional issues.

The remedies are made by placing specific high vibrational flowers in water and heating through either the sun or boiling method. Through this heating process, the energy of the individual flower transfers to the water.The remedies work through this energy interacting on an energetic level with the individual to rebalance the conscious and unconscious and dissolve old patterns of behaviour.

Bach flower remedies are a holistic form of treatment for emotional issues. The flower remedies are natural, safe to use and can be taken by people of all ages including pregnant women and babies. They don’t have any interactions with any medication.

The remedies are not to be confused with essential oils - they don’t smell! They take on the energetic imprint of the flower, but none of its physical properties.

The remedies are taken by mouth, a minimum of four drops, four times per day. You can put them directly into your mouth or into a drink. A bottle should last around 3 weeks and within this time you should start to feel some balancing of your emotions. Longer standing negative emotions will take longer to shift however.
