White Chestnut

White Chestnut

(Aesculus hippocastanum)

White Chestnut is the Remedy against inhibiting and hampering thoughts. Let’s put it this way – when our internal dialogue becomes so intense and seemingly unstoppable or if not delaying, slowing down, then we need the White Chestnut. The never-ceasing thoughts that are racing round and round in our heads can be very exhausting and cause serious torment. They can plunge us into tiredness, insomnia and even neurosis or depression. In their positive aspect White Chestnut-people enjoy a clear and calm mind, unaffected by outside influences.

Dr Bach's description

For those who cannot prevent thoughts, ideas, arguments which they do not desire from entering their minds. Usually at such times when the interest of the moment is not strong enough to keep the mind full. Thoughts which ... seem to circle round and round and cause mental torture.
