Chicory Bach Flower Remedy
Chicory Bach Flower Remedy (Cichorium Intybus) is for the person who is overly possessive--( self centered)--clinging and over-protective, especially of loved ones. They expect others to conform to their values and are critical and argumentative when they do not. Interfering, talkative, self-pitying, easily offended.
The negative Chicory state produces a need to control, to be the focus of attention, and to be continuously assured of the family's love. In its negative state, the Chicory personality can be the most domineering and demanding of them all.
