Fly agaric essence is wonderful for those of us that are less than comfortable with change. Mushrooms are the masters of change- their role in maintaining the health of planetary ecosystems is immeasurable, and as we learn their basic ecology, we too learn the metaphors and truths of mycelium and symbiosis; we are all connected, we are better together, and we must surrender to decomposition in order to grow. This essence is indicated for issues of expansion and contraction, sexual abuse, rejection, self-expression, religion, creativity, pain, and insecurity.
Mushroom Essence is energy medicine that is prepared during the most beneficial moon cycles, using various parts of the mushroom’s fruiting body and mycelium. Similar to Bach’s Flower Remedies, Mushroom Essence is subtle and powerful as it works on our “shadow” side. Mushroom Essences are vibrational products … not an actual medication. They have not been studied nor proven to cure any mental, emotional or physical illness.
Preparing mushroom essences in the traditional way absorbs the imprint of the mushroom’s energy, into the water. Once the water is strained and the plant material is removed, you are left with the “mother essence”. The mother essence is then preserved with equal amounts of top-quality, red-berry brandy that has been aged in Oak. From the mother essence bottle, I create “stock bottles”, which are further diluted, yet still potent forms of the mother. This is what you will receive; a 30ml, dark glass stock bottle with included dropper, along with a list of care and storage suggestions. Following these suggestions, your mushroom essence should remain shelf-steady for a minimum of 3 years.
Essences can also be added to bath water, body creams or lotions, or holy water.
