Water Violet / Bach Flower Remedy - 20ml Liquid
Negative Aspects Treated: clean living, proud, reserved, sedate, sometimes ‘superior aloof’, capable, independent, reliable
Positive Outcomes: gentle and tranquil poise, dignity, grace; sympathetic; wise counsellors
The Water Violet type is knowledgeable, calm and capable. They are private, sedate people, who are often asked for advice but will not impose their opinions or wishes on others. Gentle and self-reliant, they have a sense of superiority. Carried to extremes, they can be aloof, appearing proud disdainful and condescending. When they are tired, or there are too many external distractions, they have a tendency to withdraw, appearing anti-social and cold.
When suffering they keep their troubles to themselves. They do not lean on others for support and may be considered emotionally cold. They find it hard to open up to others, finding it easier to retreat behind their calm facade.
The positive potential of Water Violet is a warmer relationship with others, while maintaining one's wisdom and the benefit of their own knowledge and wisdom. Calm, serene, dignified, they are able to understand and empathise with others. They often put their talents to the service of others, as counsellors or teachers for example.
In Dr. Bach's words:
"For those who in health or illness like to be alone. Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little, and then gently. Very independent, capable and self-reliant. Almost free of the opinions of others. They are aloof, leave people alone and go their own way. Often clever and talented. Their peace and calmness is a blessing to those around them."
