Patterns of imbalance: Poor observation of life, failure to learn from experience; repeating mistakes.
Three of the Chestnut remedies (Chestnut Bud, Red Chestnut, White Chestnut) address obsessive-compulsive behavior in the personality. Chestnut Bud is used to help break free of overly repetitive and habitual patterns which retard the souls full development. It is indicated where there is a constant repetition of life experience without the ability of the soul to glean wisdom and insight. --Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R. Katz
