The aims of this flower essence:
One tries to suppress tormenting feelings, thoughts and an inner disquiet hiding them behind a facade of emphatic happiness and light-heartedness.

Dr. Bach wrote:
The jovial, cheerful, humorous people who love peace and are distressed by argument or quarrel, to avoid which they will agree to give up much. Though generally they have troubles and are tormented and restless and worried in mind or in body, they hide their cares behind their humour and jesting and are considered very good friends to know. They often take alcohol or drugs in excess, to stimulate themselves and help themselves bear their trials with cheerfulness. (The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies, 1936)
