(Verbena officinalis)

Vervain is the blossom of good causes, enthusiasm and the ability to inspire the others to be better. Of course, in its negative aspect ‘Vervain’ becomes somewhat extreme and can assume the role of Don Quixote, or it can reach a level of complete exhaustion and irritability. In such a state Vervain people are often shaken by outbursts of righteous indignation in their endless efforts to lead people and things to more elevated levels. This Remedy supports our transition to the positive where we can show greater patience and acceptance. With the help of Vervain fanaticism and martyrdom are transmuted into protection of the deprived, boldness and wisdom, the wisdom to accept others’ right to take decisions for themselves, irrespective of our assessment. Cause help, given in a forcible manner, loses its meaning and sense.   


Dr Bach's description

Those with fixed principles and ideas, which they are confident are right, and which they very rarely change. They have a great wish to convert all around them to their own views of life.
