The aims of this flower essence:
In a phase of an inner new start or a drastic change in the circumstances one is made feel unsure and one starts to be inconsistent.

For those who have definite ideals and ambitions in life and are fulfilling them, but on rare occasions are tempted to be led away from their own ideas, aims and work by the enthusiasm, convictions or strong opinions of others. The remedy gives constancy and protection from outside influences.     (The 12 Healers and other remedies, 1936)
