The aims of this flower essence:
One is absent-minded, shows little attention to oneĀ“s surrounding. Daydreamer.

Dr. Bach wrote:
Those who are dreamy, drowsy, not fully awake, no great interest in life. Quiet people, not really happy in their present circumstances, living more in the future than in the present; living in hopes of happier times, when their ideals may come true. In illness some make little or no effort to get well, and in certain may even look forward to death, in the hope of better times; or maybe, meeting again some beloved one whom they have lost. (The 12 Healers and other remedies, 1936)
