Beneath the green and berry red
They flutter about
Making a melody with each wing strum
Magical lil’ creatures
Beauties of the forest
Fairies they are called by some
Protecting and guarding against the darkness
Bringing well being to babe’s milk
Sweet Rowan tree
Grace my land and grow
Ward off evil spirits
And remind me of my heritage of long ago
Dance with me in moonlight May
And I shall honor you
With my nurturing hands
And the remembrance of the one who holds my smile ~ Patricia Gale
Flower essences are a homeopathic remedy that have been used for years to help create mind-body-spirit balance.
Due to the conditions in which they grow, the Rowan tree represents tenacity. The only berry with a naturally occurring pentagram, they have been used for protection and strength for many centuries.
Associated with luck and warding off evil spirits, rowan trees are used when building a house to protect its inhabitants and planted in and around graveyards to expel spirits. In meditation, Rowan is helpful with clearing the mind, opening inspiration, attuning us to nature, broadening perspectives, and making room for a deeper understanding of our place here in the universe.
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.
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.
This is a pure, unscented floral essence wildcrafted from our own personal rowan tree, in a base of spring water & brandy.
