The essence

Gentian is for those who get all too quickly off track by setbacks and failures They tend to shy away from obstacles and back up rather than focus all their energies on achieving their goal and the realization of their plans. They are easily disappointed and discouraged and respond with deep sadness and self-doubt.


Gentian is encouraging people who feel like failures to face life‘s challenges. It helps to look at setbacks as a guide for new strategies and a teacher. Thus they learn from the mistakes and despair no longer immediately if something goes wrong, but look for the cause and fix it. Then they can continue the chosen path with great confidence and self-confidence.
