Cerato : Properties and benefits

Cerato is the eighth plant discovered by Edward Bach who classifies this lilac-bluish flower as the ” patient who wants to do stupid things “, in fact the key word of this flower is “the search for continuous advice and confirmation”.

The Cerato would be a wise teacher and prospective teacher if you do not listen too the opinions of others and did not unduly influenced by external circumstances.

• Initial emotions (before taking the flower):

Feeling foolish, unsure of one’s instincts, a strong hesitation that leads to decision-making insecurity.

• Evolutionary emotions (after taking the flower):

Profound wisdom , serenity in following one’s destiny and intuition. Look at your soul in the mirror.

Cerato : uses

Edward Bach describes the status of Cerato as useful: “ For those who do not have enough self-confidence to be able to make decisions on their own. They always ask for advice from others, but they are often misled ”.

The Cerato type is suitable for those who do not trust their powers of discernment and judgment, especially in cases where they are forced to decide for something.

Often they are not non-intuitive people, but it is as if they were anesthetized with their own feelings, there is a lack of trust (not to be confused with Larch) of their inner abilities. 

These subjects do not have self-esteem problems, but they show difficulties in making decisions , so it may happen that they ask for advice and follow it incorrectly, even in the case of diseases (often of psychosomatic origin) such as tachycardia, they try to experience various forms of treatment and therapy suggested by others, causing slow healing.

Being a flower that leads to admire the most self-confident people, it is often used in the age of puberty, when there is a physical and mental retardation, and is therefore associated with motor capacity disorders. 

Cerato is useful for those who live withconstant doubt, lack confidence in their decision-making abilities, tend to imitate others, always experiencing other things and / or situations.

They are hungry for the answers of others, who hardly listen to each other or make a movement towards themselves.
