A Word on This Plant
Common chicory is a somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant of the dandelion family Asteraceae, usually with bright blue flowers, rarely white or pink. Many varieties are cultivated for salad leaves, chicons, or roots, which are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and food additive.
Chicory root is a good source of inulin, a type of prebiotic fiber that has been linked to increased weight loss and better gut health. It also contains manganese and vitamin B6, two nutrients linked to brain health.

In the Words of Dr. Bach
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.

Chicory for Which Children?
For children who want the full attention from their parents or friends above all else. Also for children who don’t want to lend their toys. For the insecurity and the fear of rejection.
Chicory people are full of love and care for their families and friends. But they expect to receive love and attention in return, with interest, and feel slighted and unnecessarily hurt if they don’t get all they expect.
Their great love can lead them to hold onto their loved ones and try to keep them dependent and close to hand.
This may stifle the development of other personalities, or simply drive people away.
When we fall into this state the remedy helps bring out the positive side of Chicory: love given unconditionally and in freedom.
