About this herb:
Scientific name: Hottonia palustris
Description: Water Violet of the family Primulaceae is an aquatic plant. It is found throughout Europe. The basal roots are buried in the underlying mud while other silvery, shiny roots dangle freely in the water. The leaves are deeply divided as far as the central vein, like the teeth of a double comb, and are completely submerged, but if there is a drastic fall in the water level they can surface. The five-petaled flowers are light pink with yellow in the middle. It blooms from May to June.

The aims of this flower essence:
One internally retires, an isolated feeling of superiority.

Dr. Bach wrote:
For those who in health or illness like to be alone. Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little, and then gently. Very independent, capable and self-reliant. Almost free of the opinions of others. They are aloof, leave people alone and go their own way. Often clever and talented. Their peace and calmness is a blessing to those around them.
