Weeping Willow Flower Essence || Acceptance || Oregon Grown
A 1oz bottle of Oregon-grown Weeping Willow Flower Essence
Positive qualities: Acceptance, forgiveness, taking responsibility for one's life situation, adaptability to changing fortunes and circumstances
Patterns of imbalance: Feeling resentful, inflexible, or rigid emotional memories which turn to bitterness; tendency to blame others or see oneself as the victim, Healing generational trauma especially between mothers and daughters
Personal interpretation: No other tree screams "water element" to me more than Weeping Willow. The water element is all about our emotions and letting them flow. When an emotion becomes stuck, the most common options our lizard brain chooses are to either 1) churn on it, reliving it over and over like a raft stuck in an eddy, or 2) disconnect and shut it out, like a dried-up river bed. But there is life in that river that ends up suffering as well.
Willow wraps us in her protective canopy and comforts us, helping us feel safe to process these emotions that are holding us back so that we can accept them and move forward. This creates space for an abundance of beautiful gifts to come flowing in.
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.
