Desert Willow Flower Essence
For the HERE and NOW
"This beautiful flower’s power flows through its funnel-shaped blossom and ruffled lobes, reminding us to unfurl a bit, loosen up, and to live in the moment. It is recommended to those who tend to resist the here and now and for those who feel stuck or afraid to try something new. Schedules and rituals are wonderful but can become problematic when they become so rigid that you feel you are missing out on living. This softening + opening essence allows us to see and experience our wild and free spirit in our everyday actions.
This little flower spirit opens us up to pleasure and sensuality, creating a safe container and a sense of spaciousness for our experience so that we may move in our body with ease and new appreciation. At times we may not know when to close or open our hearts to others, this essence teaches us to find and enjoy that sacred balance.
Elemental healing: Air + Fire + Water
BUT FIRST...WHAT IS A FLOWER ESSENCE?
Flower Essences embody the wisdom and energy teachings of the flower in which they are created. When you work with the energy medicine of the flower, you are choosing to spend time in the healing energy of the plant. Using a flower essence is the act of drinking or anointing oneself in the beauty, the presence, and the unique landscape in which it and its medicine comes from.
Flower Essences are the most gentle form of herbal medicine but can be the most profound when it comes to healing and repairing our mind + body + spirit connection, when working through challenging + difficult times, when honoring a grief cycle, when remembering pleasure, and when working through trauma to name a few of the many examples.
How amazing do you feel when the spring and summer flowers begin to bloom and the land is bursting with life? Do you feel receptive, hopeful, at peace even? Flower essences represent this healing energy, and they are helpful little tools for bringing balance to our emotions no matter how up and down they might be.
Our Flower Essences are created by infusing newly opened flowers into water through a special meditation + ceremonial practice. This ritualistic process in combination with my energy work background extracts the flower’s vibrations and vitality. The final steps allows these potent little remedies become a gentle ~ yet profound preparation to help support your nervous system.
Using flower essences allow us to come into communion with the very core of who we really are, giving us the opportunity to act, love, and flow from our vital force. They support us by removing the obstacles, negative patterns, and the roadblocks to moving though trauma. In essence, they are balancing to our overall emotional growth and wellbeing.
Think of the way music or art can feel and be experienced in both the physical and the energy body. We often feel moved by the frequencies, by the vibrations. Flower Essences have their own vibrations + frequencies that can alter those within us, allowing us to open up > unfurl > transform > access > unpack > fully blossom.
Flower essences permeate our energy field with their healing vibration, bringing balance to our emotional patterns and how we respond to them. As emotional beings, without fail, we will feel and integrate into the world around us and can always appreciate a little support.
They help us course correct, resolve, and overcome outdated patterns, creating more space for deeper, more conscious connections to ourselves, to others, and to spirit.
Working with Flower Essences grants us the time and space to sit and rest in our quiet. Every drop is special, sacred, a pause. Their healing potential is both immense + overflowing and their ability to hold us is a feeling beyond words.
Flower Essences are wonderful tools to help us connect to our true nature, to our joy...they help us remember that approaching our own needs comes first - otherwise we will be giving and showing up from an empty place.
HOW DO I USE A FLOWER ESSENCE?
The wonderful thing about flower essences is that there are so many ways that we can bring their medicine into our lives. We can use them like we would an herbal tincture, taking a few drops and up to a dropper full directly under the tongue or in your favorite hydrating drink. Perhaps it’s topically that you prefer, you can absolutely use any flower essence directly on the physical body. Some people like to gently dab a few drops on pulse points, the heart, the nape of the neck, acupuncture points or marma points, or any place where your intuition directs you. The essence can even be added to your daily moisturizing body oil or face oil. We love to use them in the bath, in our hair, or try adding a few drops to a mister bottle filled with water and using it in a room or on yourself."
Enjoy the ritual.
