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

For those who in health or illness like to be alone. Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little, and then gently. Very independent, capable and self-reliant. Almost free of the opinions of others. They are aloof, leave people alone and go their own way. Often clever and talented. Their peace and calmness is a blessing to those around them.

Indication: For those who are self-reliant and hence isolated

Water Violet is a remedy for people who enjoy being by themselves. They dislike noise and disorder and would prefer to be alone rather than be subjected to disturbance and interference. They are self sufficient, self contained, proud and dignified, they respect other people’s privacy and enjoy their own.   This attitude may lead to bottling of things and they may withdraw into themselves and increase the distance between them and others.  This remedy can help create a balance between their inner strong self and social life, which will allow them to enjoy the company of others.

Empowering Affirmations

I enjoy the company of others.

I can express my love for others.

Bach Remedies for Animals

Animals who are by themselves and do not complain may benefit from Water Violet. These animals usually will rise above any problem by simply wandering off quietly and alone.  This remedy makes them call on others when they need while enjoying their own company.
