Dr Edward Bach’s description for VERVAIN
Those with fixed principles and ideas, which they are confident are right, and which they very rarely change. They have a great wish to convert all around them to their own views of life. They are strong of will and have much courage when they are convinced of those things that they wish to teach. In illness, they struggle on long after many would have given up their duties.

The Vervain remedy, according to Dr. Edward Bach, is crafted for individuals who exhibit an intense and fervent enthusiasm, often to the point of becoming fanatical. Those in need of this remedy may display symptoms such as a relentless pursuit of their goals, a strong sense of justice, and a tendency to be easily irritated by perceived injustices in the world. Emotionally, individuals requiring Vervain may feel a sense of inner tension, impatience with the perceived slowness of others, and a need to convert others to their way of thinking. The mental and emotional burden associated with Vervain creates a state of over zealousness, hindering the individual's ability to find balance and tolerance.
