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

Those who are very mindful of the needs of others; they tend to be over-full of care for children, relatives, friends, always finding something that should be put right. They are continually correcting what they consider wrong, and enjoy doing so. They desire that those for whom they care should be near them.

Indication: For those who are possessive.

Chicory is a great remedy for someone who is possessive and manipulative. People needing Chicory can use emotional blackmail to get their way out. They may also feel that they deserve appreciation in return for the concern they show for others – and may be more from near and dear ones.

The action of this remedy is to enable the individual to learn from mistakes and experiences so that the life can move on. 

Empowering Affirmations

I love unconditionally. 

I give without a thought of return.     

Bach Remedies for Animals

Chicory animals are possessive in nature. One of the ways to recognise the chicory animal will be that it will sit near you and demand your attention and like to be petted. A animal who follows you everywhere could be a chicory animal. These animals will be very possessive of their family and home.
