Centaurium erythrea (umbellatum)

"Kind, quiet, gentle people who are over-anxious to serve others. They overtax their strength in their endeavors. Their wish so grows upon them that they become more servants than willing helpers. Their good nature leads them to do more than their own share of work, and in so doing they may neglect their own particular mission in life."

Edward Bach, The Twelve Healers

Centaury is for those who live their lives in service to others and have difficulty setting healthy boundaries. They will typically come across as very kind and accommodating, sometimes to excess. They tend to be givers, caretakers, and people-pleasers and may have a hard time saying “no,” especially when in relationship with dominant individuals.

Keywords: Difficulty setting boundaries, saying "no;" people pleasing, subservience
