Extract from The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies, by Dr. Edward Bach

For those who feel the need to see more good and beauty in all that surrounds them. And, although much appears to be wrong, to have the ability to see the good growing within. So as to be able to be more tolerant, lenient and understanding of the different way each individual and all things are working to their own final perfection.

Indication: For intolerance.

People in Beech state have high intolerance and that is their key characteristics. They can be hyper-critical of others and have very little thought for others’ circumstances which may have led them to live the way they are. These people think themselves as perfectionists. They also feel that their way is the only sensible way and show no leniency towards other people, who may do things differently. Children needing Beech find it hard to tolerate other children. They may often complain about other child not doing things correctly. Taking Beech can help people develop tolerant view for other people’s patterns and behaviour.
