MORE ON FLOWER ESSENCES
So a flower is just going to change my mood? Yes. Correct. Certainly. In ways you wouldn’t imagine. “Flower essences can be profound medicine for anyone, and they will work best for those with a general openness to intuitive healing.”-Asia Suler 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
Flower essences work on the subtler levels of our psyche & emotions. The places we can’t touch or see, but the places we feel every now and again. They are wonderful for addressing our self-limiting ideas, thought patterns, anxiety, fear, general tension, trauma, and more. Whenever we feel as though we’re stuck or held back by something, flower essences literally open up the places that have been blocked and allow us to feel open, move forward, and step into the fullest, best versions of ourselves. 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
This kind of healing doesn’t happen after one massage or after a trip to the doctors office, it happens over time, with patience, and an open heart. And the best part is: it lasts. ✨👉✨👉✨👉Once we’ve embedded the code of a flower essence into our DNA, we create new structures for our system to operate from. 👈✨👈✨👈✨
Our newest flower essence, Aster flower, reminds us that it’s all good...when we can’t seem to shift our focus from the negative, from what isn’t working. Aster opens our eyes back up to all the goodness that’s constantly visible.
Have you worked with a flower essence before? Feel free to share your experiences! 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾

GOLDENROD FLOWER ESSENCE
This is probably the most excited I’ve ever been to share something with all of you. Goldenrod is one of the last bursts of color we see before the winter months, so this essence comes highly recommended for those who experience winter lows. The golden energy in this flower isn’t just sparkly...it’s solid, sturdy, and strong. It also resonates with the timing of the #metoo movement, #DrFord, and all the women who are coming forward with their hearts of gold, strength, and courage. We’ve gotta put an end to the feeling of being silenced, even if it’s as small as holding back tears when you’ve just had a hard day and wanna have a good cry! 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
To learn more about how flower essences work, we’ll be posting throughout the week, and you can also go back a few posts to read more in depth.
And here she is: GOLDENROD
Goldenrod’s song is soulful, every note filled with gold. The essence of Goldenrod invites us to our truth. To speak it. To live it. To be it.
For those of us who outwardly extend ourselves to others in ways that diminish our own true inner light. Goldenrod has a powerful soul center, inviting us to reconnect to our own center of strength. By illuminating our vertical axis of energy (the hara line) we step into the power of what it means to be the whole person that we are, and share our unique life force energy. 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
A reminder that our individual impact is important. This leaves us with no need to lie about anything: saying you want to when you don’t. That you will when you won’t. Your sacred yes and your sacred no are equally important. 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
Goldenrod’s scientific name is Solidago, which comes from the Latin word “whole” or “to make whole”. When we’re whole, there’s no need to diminish any aspect of ourselves just to please others. We live our complete truth. And our unique sparkle is lit back up.
We all have a little gold in our souls✨ Goldenrod is here to light it back up strong as the sun🌞 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾

“Flower essences are vibrational remedies that are used to release limiting patterns of thought/perspective, helping us to recognize and fulfill greater states of harmony & joy...A flower’s inherent energy or essence can help us heal our own deep emotional or “essence” patterns in our own beings.”-Asia Sueler 🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾
Today, tap into the essence of your inner gold. It’s in there✨

Say “verbascum thapsus” 9x fast and you’re a mullein magician! This plant’s scientific name references the Battle of Thapsus, which took place in 46BC under Julius Caesar’s reign....which lends to just how long this plant has been growing on our planet. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Most commonly, Mullein is prescribed for coughs as it soothes the mucous membranes. Like many plants, it’s best drank as a tea, but unlike most plants, it can be smoked to soothe the lungs and respiratory system. When smoked, mullein heals lung tissue, opens up air passageways, and stops asthma attacks. Various Native American tribes, including the Hopi, Malechite, Mohican, Navajo, & Potawatomi treated asthma simply by smoking mullein leaves.
The little yellow flowers that grow on the top of the stalk can be used to make an oil infusion to treat ear infections. These little yellow flowers open up one at a time along the talk stalk of a second year mullein plant. Gather them while in bloom and once dried, infuse them in olive oil for 6 weeks. One drop of this oil into ears that ache or are inflamed works quickly and effectively, not masking the symptoms, but treating them.
Historically, mullein stalks have been used as torches to start sacred fires and as flashlight torches in the night. This is also an herb of protection which will bless any garden or wild place with its strength. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
Mullein holds many more uses than I have listed here, how have you experienced mullein? 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿

WHAT IS A FLOWER ESSENCE?
Flower essences work on the subtle energetics within ourselves. We’ve become quite accustomed to taking substances internally to relieve our physical ailments, but what about the emotional and energetic ones? 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼Our bodies hold a myriad of vibrations, compiled by our life experiences, thoughts, and emotions. When these experiences build up, they become embedded into our cellular makeup, and the vibrations in our bodies shift. This can create stagnancy, lethargy, disease, discomfort, and emotional lows. Though these vibrations are not physically seen with the eye or tangible to the touch, they are real and they are felt.
A flower essence is the energetic imprint of a flower, highly diluted to create harmony in our spirits. They’re so subtle, they can reach those invisible and hard-to-get-to places within our minds & spirits. The effect allows is to release limiting patterns of thought, behavior, and perspective...Which leads us to recognize the truth about who we are: pure joy and potential. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼
Have you experienced healing from a flower essence? My personal favorite has been Ocotillo, which helped me to release mental blocks I had about myself and what I deserved in relationships.
Something I couldn’t have done on my own. Something I’m forever grateful to Ocotillo for. Stay tuned for a really special essence in the works that we have to share with all of you! 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼
