Foxglove Flower Essence ~ Grief


Flower essences are a homeopathic remedy that have been used for years to help create mind-body-spirit balance.

Created to bring comfort & strength in times of mourning, grief, sadness and heartache, Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) is associated with all matters of the heart.

Foxglove is a protector of the heart, allowing one to push through the grief situation, or to sit with it as needed. For those that are so deeply heart-nourishing energetically, this can help calm and comfort, to help let go of the things that are inflamed (causing pain) in our hearts, making this a wonderful choice for self care. This flower essence is beneficial for those experiencing loss & grief whether it be from a physical death, loss of relationship, a career, loss of a part of the self, anything that brings grief and heartache.

This plant spirit essence was created in solitude in the woods of the Canadian Pacific Gulf Islands. Infused deeply with intention in the forest, in a sacred space believed to be full of fairies, life and purity.

Unlike essential oils or herbal extracts that contain the physical substances extracted from plants, there is no physical part of the flower left in a flower essence. Instead they work on similar principles to Homeopathy, in which the life-force and vibrational signature of the plant is imprinted within a water-based matrix. This is achieved through sun-steeping the flowers in water for a period of time. The water is then collected, strained and potentised through dilution methods.

The earliest European recorded use of flower essences was by abbess Hildegard von Bingen in the twelfth century, who would place muslin sheets over flowers at night to absorb their dew, which would then be collected in the morning, rung out, and used to treat people with emotional imbalances. Flower essences work by the principle of resonance within the subtle human energy field, which impacts one’s physical and emotional health. In other words, flower essences are based on vibrational energetics, rather than biochemical, and stimulate the body’s natural capacity to bring itself back to homeostasis. All plants carry vibrational energy patterns, and it is said that flowers are the pinnacle of this energy.

Traditionally used as heart medicine,  Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) is no longer taken as it is poisonous. This is a gentle approach to healing, without physically taking this potent plant ally internally.

It is proven that our mental responses to life events and predisposed conditions can cause physical illnesses within our bodies, creating further mental and spiritual distress. It is recommended to research the history and benefits of flower essences to further understand the amazing uses and how these can be a catalyst for much needed personal healing and growth at all levels of ourselves, mind-body-spirit.

Add 1-3 drops of the flower essence to a drink or directly to the mouth. It can also be added to bath water, applied directly to the hands, anointed onto self and candles for spiritual work.
