Water Violet

Hottonia palustris

"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."

Edward Bach, The Twelve Healers

The Water Violet state is found in those who desire solitude and lack interest in others. These people may appear cold, reserved, aloof, or even superior. They are simply not interested in socializing and feel quite satisfied being alone. Social circumstances will tend to feel draining to them.
