About this herb:
Scientific name: Fragus sylvatica
Description: The Beech is part of Fagaceae family. This tree can be found in Europe, Asia, and North America. Without agriculture and forestry the Beech would predominate the European woods. The trunk is grey and smooth growing up to 100 feet in height. The leaves are entire or sparsely toothed, from 2-3 inches long and 1,5-2 inches broad. The male and female flowers are found on the same tree. They appear together with the new leaves and are in full flower from April till May. The fruit is a small, sharply 3-angled nut 0.4 – 0.7 inches long. The nuts are edible and sometimes bitter because of their tannin content.

The aims of this flower essence:
Enormous tolerance. One ignores other people´s weaknesses too much.

Dr. Bach wrote:
For those who feel the need to see more good and beauty in all that surrounds them. And, although much appears to be wrong, to have the ability to see the good growing within. So as to be able to be more tolerant, lenient and understanding of the different way each individual and all things are working to their own final perfection.     (The 12 Healers and other remedies, 1936)
