Patterns of imbalance: Constricted feelings, particularly in the chest; internalized grief and melancholy, deeply repressed emotions.
Yerba Santa addresses the inner sanctity of the human soul. There is within every human heart an inviolable space which must be kept open and free; the Self breathes its soul essence in and out from this center. This part of the human being is the most sensitive, the most deeply feeling, and the most psychic. It is especially vulnerable to emotions of sadness, grief, or other related soul pain. If such emotons are not actively addressed by the consciousness, they will be stored and buried away in this part of the heart. The individual becomes profoundly melancholic, bearing deep internalized sadness, which is not simply related to daily events, but which pervades and colors the entire emotional life. This soul illness grips the body. –Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R. Katz
