Creeping Thistle

The essence

Creeping Thistle is as prickly as sociable. Despite its defensive spines you will always find it in groups, never alone. Its flower essence reflects this behavior: it allows the assertion of a fixed position and at the same time it provides adaptability and willingness to compromise. It helps not to drown in a group, on the other it soothes when you tend to assert yourself too aggressively.

Creeping Thistle

Creeping Thistle promotes the cooperation and the search for the best solution for everyone. It helps the individuals to keep their individuality and that is exactly what amkes them appreciated members of the group.
