Over-care for Welfare of Others


Dr Edward Bach’s description for VINE


Very capable people, certain of their own ability, confident of success. Being so assured, they think that it would be for the benefit of others if they could be persuaded to do things as they themselves do, or as they are certain is right. Even in illness they will direct their attendants. They may be of great value in emergency.

The Vine remedy, as conceived by Dr. Edward Bach, is formulated for individuals who exhibit dominating and authoritarian behavior, often at the expense of the well-being of others. Those in need of Vine may display symptoms such as a strong desire to control, a tendency to impose their ideas on others, and a lack of consideration for differing opinions. Emotionally, they may appear authoritarian and inflexible, making it difficult for others to express themselves freely. Individuals requiring Vine may experience internal frustration if their expectations are not met or if others do not comply with their directives. The remedy is designed to restore balance by helping individuals adopt a more inclusive and tolerant approach to leadership and interpersonal relationships.
