Among the many health benefits Chicory offers, it helps decrease inflammation, increase bile production (cleanses the gallbladder and prevents stones from forming), regulates blood sugar, acts as a diuretic and reduces nervous tension. So, if you are always reaching for a java jolt then feel uptight about everything and everyone, do yourself the opposite and grab a big cup of caffeine freedom.
Chicory flower essence can help people who need to dominate, manipulate and control their families. The Chicory person’s love is always conditional. They feel the need to control every situation, are possessive and manipulative, and always expect others to conform to their own values. They want constant attention and can’t stand to be alone. Those who can benefit from Chicory are often critical, interfering, nagging or interrupt conversations often. They resent giving to others unless they expect something in return.
Chicory’s Secret Lore
Because Chicory flower essence is the ‘unconditional love’ essence, it’s the great family affair remedy. Its personality signature can be applied to every stage of a family’s development, from the fussy baby who wants to nurse all night, controlling her mother’s schedule, to the parent who is having trouble letting go control of her children of her child’s separation stages such as starting preschool, going away to camp or to college. For adults, Chicory essence addresses this misbalanced energies of motherly overprotection, smothering, extreme control or putting conditions on her love and inducing guilt in her family. When these energies are put back in balance, the Chicory person may find deep inner strength, self-love and become a selfless, eternal mother figure, able to spread warmth and kindness where once there was only bitterness.
A good affirmation while meditating on Chicory is, “I trust my worthiness to love and be loved. I love myself unconditionally.”
