Indian Pink Flower Essence for When You Feel Like You Need to Be Multi-Tasking Too Much of the Time

Indian Pink Flower Essence
Does this look like you? Relaxedly handling multiple calls, piles of work, interruptions, etc. with a smile on your face? Yes? Awesome! (You don't need this flower essence.) But if you find this to be a very stressful situation OR if you gravitate to this kind of situation because you like lots of activity and keeping yourself busy but then find yourself increasingly overwhelmed and unable to focus, that is when Indian Pink Flower Essence can bring great relief! I just added Indian Pink dosage bottles infused with Reiki to my Etsy shop.

Flower Essence Aromatherapy for Inner Strength and Protection

Mama Love for Inner Strength and Protection
Do you ever feel emotionally depleted, exhausted even, after a day or even a few minutes of being around other people in a helping capacity? Like you've put so much of yourself aside to listen to and cope with the behaviors of other people that you just need to take a nap? Or conversely, does someone (your mother? a friend?) put so much well-intentioned effort into "helping" or advising you on your life that you can't get their influence out of your head enough to hear your own inner voice? Having appropriate boundaries can make a significant difference, so much so that I developed this Reiki-infused flower essence aromatherapy formula to help you come back to your clear-headed, grounded self when you've lost yourself and have an easier time building and maintaining healthier boundaries so you can interact with other people in a more positive way.

Emotional Healing for Those Suffering through the Trump Administration

Over the years I have noticed that sales of certain products follow the news—not the little everyday things, but larger events, the bigger trends. It's no surprise then that sales of my Restful Sleep flower essence aromatherapy formula skyrocketed since Donald Trump was elected. The number of people reporting severe insomnia since the election has sleep researchers quite concerned. Americans of a certain stripe are up in arms, shocked and horrified on a daily basis, and simply put, they're not sleeping.

Therapists have called it "election stress disorder" or, now, "headline stress disorder."  So many people are suffering from clenched jaws and teeth grinding since the election that Vogue Magazine has even written an article specifically on how to deal with it. I've sold practically nothing but stress reduction formulas for months.

With one glaring exception: sales of Open-Hearted Loving have risen significantly. Since that has never been one of my very best sellers I have to take note. I also know that this is the formula I personally found myself turning to when my own jaw clenching and teeth grinding reached horrifying proportions. I followed my inner guidance on this one, because I never would have thought of it on my own, but I noticed improvements fairly quickly and over the course of a month I saw huge improvements so I've been thinking about this a lot. It’s very common to shut down our hearts when we’re in fear —it feels much more powerful to be angry—but it’s not healthfully sustainable. My first impression when I use this formula is a sense of relaxation, maybe deep relaxation depending on how much you need it. And, of course, that is not specifically what I created this formula to do! But then something else happens. The armoring around one's heart—which always manifests as tight bands of muscles in the upper chest, shoulders, perhaps neck and jaw—softens. I find myself able to breathe more deeply and then love returns. (Expect tears of relief or, sometimes, temporary grief for the way we behaved while shut down.)

I also believe that this formula opens our hearts to our inner "heart's desires." For health and mental stability it pays to return to what we love instead of just coping with what we fear.  So in my case, it helped me want to do art again after being too busy with politically-motivated activity. Not that there's anything wrong with that—and I haven't stopped— but balance is a very important thing. We need to shift into being able to create what we love and want to see more of (or a return of) instead of being caught in an endless cycle of terror, anger and reaction. 

If you want to make use of Open-Hearted Loving as a healing project over the course of a month (the recommended length of time), consider getting the 1 oz sized bottle. I used it as a body oil when I got out of the shower every day—just rub a little between your hands and apply it lightly wherever you like (arms, legs, chest, shoulders, neck) and then again late in the evening. It smells wonderful! (One of my favorites.)

Lady's Slipper Flower Essence for Spiritual Purpose

Lady's Slipper Flower Essence
Isn't this a gorgeous flower? I remember seeing these from time to time in New England, and once here in Chico, CA, but they are very rare. And it's very inspirational when you do see them! Which makes sense to me because I'm pretty sensitive to the energy of plants. Lady's Slipper is used for bringing spiritual purpose into your daily work and for grounded spirituality in general. And, in case you thought it actually looks like a flower than exudes sexuality, you're right! It helps brings spirituality down into the root chakra. It helps with sexual depletion and nervous exhaustion and other first chakra issues.

The company I buy Lady's Slipper Flower Essence from takes GREAT pains to harvest sustainably. I joined them on a flower essence making trip, learned about how they do this, and saw their process myself so I feel good about offering dosage strength bottles infused with Reiki of Lady's Slipper in my Etsy shop.

Hornbeam Bach Flower Essence for When Life Drags You Down

Hornbeam Bach Flower Essence
Hornbeam popped up for me recently. Sometimes life weighs heavily on us. It can feel like you're working and working and working but getting nowhere in your life! (Depression, anyone?) Hornbeam can help you either find new enthusiasm for the tasks at hand or, sometimes, find your way to changing the conditions of your life! More often, it helps you find the energy and enthusiasm for whatever has to be done. I just added Hornbeam dosage bottles infused with Reiki to my Etsy shop.
