If you suffer in this way you probably recognize that your obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours are irrational – but even so, you feel unable to resist them and break free

Orange and Hibiscus - obsessive behaviour
Garlic - fear
Asphodel - spiritual fear, fear of evil
Cherry Plum - fear of harming another
Sweet Chestnut - inner torment
Crimson Pea - to comfort whilst facing the darkness, and to assist in the process of transformation that accompanies such states
Mustard - depression and loneliness
