White Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)
This essence evokes calmness, inner quiet, and a clear mind, freeing the soul from mental ruminations. In a positive state one can have a strong mind which is able to give detailed attention to present tasks.
For those who experience mental agitation, worry and compulsive thinking. These people have patterns of thought that constantly repeat; unwanted thoughts, ideas or arguments that they seem unable to prevent, causing mental congestion. They create mental arguments, that analyze life episodes, keeping the mind busy with unpleasant thoughts that circle around in the mind without resolution and just won’t quit. These thoughts drive out peace and interfere with being able to think clearly. These people seem to have insufficient interest in the present moment to keep the mind present, and get caught in inner drama forever re-enacted resulting in mental congestion. One may feel tired, have insomnia, confusion, or depression. Nagging, obsessive thoughts can be dominating and distracting and can even cause one to be accident prone.
