Do you find yourself rushing into projects before you are fully prepared? Do you have one passion that you are so excited about to the exclusion of everything else? Are you so enthusiastic about something that others may find you over-enthusiastic? "Have you seen what poaches do to Rhinos? We have to stop them, I am putting up a weekly stall and you are going to join me, we have to stop poachers."
If you are over enthusiastic for a cause, where you want all others to see your point of view, and you are not seeing things in perspective then the remedy Vervain may help you to put on breaks a bit and be more measured and relaxed.
Being enthusiastic for a cause is a good thing, but sometimes the danger in being too enthusiastic is that the constant mental activity can lead to exhaustion and mental tension. And the passion to persuade can turn into fanaticism and to understand another person's point of view leading to conflict.
