Centaury (Bach Flower Remedy) is one of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies.
Bach flower remedies are selected based on the emotions a person is experiencing at the particular point in time at which he or she uses the remedies.
Centaury may be appropriate when some or all of the following characteristics apply:
- 'Do anything for anyone' personalities (over self-sacrifice)
- people who do not stand-up for themselves but whose servile tendencies render them trapped in their roles rather than being willing helpers of others
The centaury Bach flower remedy is categorized in the 'over-sensitivity to influences and ideas' group of remedies, together with agrimony, holly and walnut.
Many books about Bach Flower Remedies suggest that most people can benefit from them at some times and/or during certain types of circumstances. The main question at any particular time is which of the remedies is appropriate for the specific person (or animal) at that time, remembering that the choice need not be of just one remedy. Although it is possible to use only one remedy at a time, a small group of remedies is often selected and used together.
