Gentian Bach Flower Essence
10ml dropper bottle, one of the Twelve Healers
…is for that relatively mild downheartedness we sometimes feel when things go wrong. We miss a bus; fail an exam; miss out on an opportunity: it knocks us back.
Often the feeling lifts by itself, but the remedy can be used to lift it sooner so that we are able to make things go right instead of just hoping they will.
Gentian is often confused with Gorse, which is also a remedy for feeling down when things go wrong. The difference is largely one of degree.
People in a Gorse state have decided to give up. They refuse to be encouraged, and even if they seek a solution they will do so grudgingly, assuring everyone that there is no use trying. People in a Gentian state are less pessimistic and more prepared to try again.

Dr. Bach’s description
Those who are easily discouraged. They may be progressing well in illness, or in the affairs of their daily life, but any small delay or hindrance to progress causes doubt and soon disheartens them.

How to Use
Healingherbs’ traditional Bach flower essences are prepared in the field and preserved in full-strength French organic brandy. They should be diluted, and if desired, combined to make personal dosage bottles.
Up to five essences can be used in any one combination. 5 Flower® counts as a single essence and can be used in combination with up to four other essences.
To create your own personal essence solution, take an empty dropper bottle and add about 20ml of water. Add two drops of each of your chosen essences*. You can add a little brandy if you wish to preserve your essence combination.
(*These should be from an essence bottle clearly labelled Stock Concentrate which is an assurance that the essence is made according to the original directions of Dr Edward Bach.)
This is now your own personal remedy at dosage strength. Take four drops from your personal dosage bottle four times daily.
