Chicory is a very important remedy for emotional congestion and misdirected love forces. Those in need of this essence must learn to distinguish between personal emotions and desires, and genuine impersonal love and caring for another. Otherwise, the individual becomes selfish rather than selfless, manipulating the emotions of others for his or her own needs and desires. --Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R.
