The essence

Vervain calms those who are so sure of their opinion so that they feel they must convince the rest of humanity, too. This personality type follows fixed principles that are important to him and rarely questioned. The essence is for very strong-willed people with leadership qualities, who can carry you away.


The ability to inspire others, however can degenerate into fanaticism and dogmatism. This problem can be solved by this essence. Vervain brings a new view of reality. It does not take the enthusiasm away, but adds a good dose of realism, insight and foresight. Now the ever-proselytizing nuisance can become a wise counselor.
