Datura Stramonium Flower Essence
Datura Stramonium Flower Essence
Have you ever heard Datura essences called the grandmother essence? This term is very suited to Datura, as her qualities are all about love, support, and encouragement. Datura is supportive to those navigating their way through difficult situations and internal challenges. She offers us a glimpse of the beauty that awaits us on the other side of the things that trouble us.
Just like our elders and guides, Datura helps steer us from one phase to another in life. She breathes new life into the areas that need it the most and offers emotional support when dealing with wounds of rejection, betrayal, or abandonment, by creating the space needed for the healing of your spirit. Datura brings you out of denial, limiting beliefs, and shattered dreams, opening us up to a more expansive point of view.
Do you often feel a desire to be alone? Are you recently experiencing more headaches, dizziness, trouble breathing, or toxic overload? Feeling worried, frustration, or fear of aggression? Are you super tense and overwhelmed? Stressed, sad, or feel panicked?
Datura is the perfect flower for the dark night of the soul. She magnifies knowledge, strength, and artistic solutions. She helps us find a different perspective to previously difficult-to-navigate situations. Datura is clarifying and calming.
Datura rids the body of toxins, leaving our body and spirit clean, soothed, quiet, and clear. While purifying the body, Datura also amplifies mental clarity, personal power, and euphoria. She can encourage you to detach from the people, behaviors, or situation responsible for introducing toxicity into our life.
Datura essence provides watery, cooling, and lunar qualities, reflecting their nocturnal habits. She is also helpful in breaking addictions.
Flower Essences are a form of sympathetic magic. They contain the energetic signature or life-force of the flower, similar to a homeopathic dosage.
Flower essences do not target specific physical illnesses, but rather the moods and the negative emotions which lead to their manifestation.
A flower essence is a super diluted, solar (or lunar, when appropriate) charged, liquid extract. Flower essences are truly straight from the “laboratory of nature”. All four alchemical elements are present in an essence. Water, Air, earth, and fire all harmoniously blend beautifully, leaving only the spirit element, which is fulfilled by the sensitive awareness and attunement of the preparer, and further by the user.
Each plant contains a unique energy vibration pattern, and the pinnacle of this energy is the flower.
Do you feel particularly drawn to a particular flower? This suggests that you are in need of an innate wisdom, that the flower could provide to you, on a deep emotional level. Each flower boasts its own therapeutic advantages and can target a distinctive emotional state.
Using flower essences is a simple, natural way to grow and heal, as the essence functions as a catalyst for transformation, at a deep emotional level.
For night blooming flowers, I gather blooms once they are fully opened, and allow them to charge under the moon light. Preparing the essences in this manner, absorbs the imprint of the flower’s energy, into the water.
Once the water is strained and the flowers removed, you are left with the “mother essence”. I then preserve the mother essence with equal amounts of top-quality brandy. This is what you will receive; a 30ml glass stock bottle with included dropper.
To use any of my essences, you can simply place 4 drops from the stock bottle that you receive, into a glass of water, up to 4 times daily. Alternately, you can make your own dosage bottle, by adding several drops from your stock bottle to an equal amount of water and brandy ( ¼ to ½ ounce), and storing this in a one ounce dropper bottle. This method allows you to use several essences together, if desired.
You can either make a dosage bottle of each essence separately, or simply add an additional ¼ to ½ ounce of water/brandy combination for each additional flower essence-from stock bottles- that you would like to combine. Essences can also be added to bath water, body creams or lotions, or holy water.
As with all my products, this flower essence was created in a small batch, ensuring freshness and potency. It is gluten free and vegan friendly.
