Borage Flower Essence || Light of Heart || Oregon Grown
A 1oz bottle of Oregon-grown Borage Flower Essence
Positive qualities: Cheerful heart forces, buoyant courage, and optimism
Patterns of imbalance: Heavy-heartedness or grief, lack of confidence in facing difficult circumstances, negative outlook, tendency toward depression, fear of life changes and transitions.
Personal interpretation: Borage is a fierce nurturer. Grown in permaculture gardens not only to attract pollinators with its glowing indigo flowers, but as an accumulator, pulling up nutrients from deep within the soil to make them accessible to nearby plants.
Borage brings that same energy to us in her flower essence. Cheerful and unassuming, but sturdy and reliable, Borage has a way of taking a little bit of the weight off to give us a chance to shift and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
What are Flower Essences
Flower essences are liquid extracts of flower vibrational energy that are used to address emotional imbalances and mind-body well-being. They're like crystals and plants combined, and no, they're not a replacement for your medications.
They are however, dilute herbal infusions prepared from pristine garden blossoms. In fact they're so dilute that I'll come right out and tell you, if you had them tested in a lab they probably wouldn't detect any physical evidence of the plant at all. So like, the opposite of potentially toxic essential oils.
And yet somehow, people have been reporting good experiences with them since the 1930's.
You might know, my background is in the hard sciences and research. My degree is in biology. I'm a skeptic and I want evidence. But at the same time, to pretend that modern science can understand everything in our universe is just self-righteous and disrespectful to nature.
That said, to make them, the fresh, dew-filled blossoms are gathered in the early morning and infused by the warmth and light of the sun.
This process creates an imprint of the unique energy pattern of the flowers into the water, which then embodies the healing archetype of that particular plant.
This is combined with the intuition of the crafter, who connects with the plant as the essence is being made. Very small doses are taken orally over a period of about a month, and they can also be used topically in creams and sprays.
Putting the flowers in water is easy, but personally, it took *several years* of working with plants for me to feel connected enough to begin this energy work.
I've been over here growing this line of flower essences that aren't mass-produced like commercial ones are. I believe there has to be something lost when you're producing enough flower essence to be shipped to every single health food store in the "western" world.
