Chicory (Cichorium intybus) is the Bach Flower Remedy for people that are full of love and care for their families and friends - But they expect to receive back all the love they give, with interest, and feel slighted and unnecessarily hurt if they don’t get what they expect. Also, their great love can lead them to hold onto their loved ones and try to keep them dependent and close to hand. This can stifle the development of other personalities, or simply drive them away.
When someone falls into this negative Chicory state the remedy is used to bring out the positive side of the Chicory person: love given unconditionally and in freedom.
Dr Bach’s description:
Those who are very mindful of the needs of others; they tend to be over-full of care for children, relatives, friends, always finding something that should be put right. They are continually correcting what they consider wrong, and enjoy doing so. They desire that those for whom they care should be near them.
