The Essences work best when either
or in a combination addressing the same theme or issue. I feel it
is best to take one Essence/combination at a time, except in an acute,
one-off situation, i.e., when Emergency Essence is needed. The
of the Essences should be used for two weeks at a time. If, at
end of that period, it appears the Essence has not totally resolved the
problem, repeat, or use a different Essence to address the new major
When taking an Essence, it is
be aware of the positive virtues of the Essence and the negative
The Essences are self adjusting and
the layers of blocked emotions to whatever "point of resolution" the
at the time, is prepared to travel.
Seven drops (from dosage bottle) taken mornings
and night (on rising and retiring). Take for 10 to 14 days unless
otherwise specified. This dosage is the most effective, is easy to
remember, and builds up a rhythmic healing frequency.

and home use, incorporates all 69 Essences. The Stock Kit has two
boxes with a total of 72 spaces, providing room for growth when new
Essences are developed.

Negative: mental and emotional
exhaustion, lack of joy, weight of responsibility
This flower grows in exposed rocky
sites in the alpine and sub-alpine areas of south eastern
Australia. This Essence works on the mental and emotional
levels. It is for people who work in healing, health administration
and caring situations where there is a great deal of responsibility
for other people. They give much of themselves both physically
and emotionally, often listening to people in pain and need.
These care givers can be in danger of burning out or becoming
disillusioned, feeling "why bother?!". They can reach a point
of tiredness, feeling their life has lost its joy. Alpine
Mint Bush can revitalise and bring about in these people a
renewed enthusiasm and joy in their life for what they do,
helping to refresh and revitalize when there is feeling of
mental and emotional exhaustion. Like other Mints, this is
refreshing and cooling.
Positive: attaining spiritual
truth/protection, access to gifts from past lifetimes, repairs
whole energy field
Negative: spiritual confusion.
interference with true spiritual connection, spiritual gullibility,
for answers outside of self, spiritually "possessed"
This amazing flower grows in the
alpine region of Australia. Viewed from one angle, it has
the appearance of a "fleur-de-lis." The Essence is for reaching
one's own spiritual truth by cutting through any confusion
or misinformation, i.e., helping one discern the level of
truth in "channelled messages." When the flower is looked
at the opposite way, it resembles a monk in purple robes accentuated
by the yellow stamens at the third eye. Taking this Essence
allows access and retrieval of previously developed gifts
from past lives. Angelsword protects from outside influences
and entities so one can receive clear information from one's
Higher Self without interference. Whilst Fringed
Violet works to repair damage to the aura, Angelsword
releases any energies that entered while the aura was open.
Represents the air element and
allows one to hear, see and feel communication from the other
side and be open to that guidance and communication. The work
of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and other workers in this field all
note how common and important it is for the one passing over
to be aware that help and guidance are around, especially
the presence of loved ones who have already died. It will
ease the transition of the passing over from the physical
plane to the spiritual world.
Banksia Robur is commonly known
as Swamp Banksia as it is usually found by creek banks. This
Essence addresses temporary loss of drive and enthusiasm due
to burn out, disappointment, or frustration. It is different
to Old Man Banksia as it is for people
who are normally very dynamic. It will pick them up out of
the 'bog' they are in and get them back on solid ground and
going again. Bathing two or three times a day, using seven
drops of the Essence in each bath, will enhance the effect
of this remedy. This will assist in washing away negativity.
Negative: Resistance to
change, rigidity, annoyance.
Positive: Acceptance and
open mindedness, embracing new concepts/ideas.
Made up near Geikie Gorge in the
Kimberleys, this Essence is for embracing new concepts and
ideas. There may be some hesitation or reluctance, initially,
in coming to terms with these. It can even help when there
is a person who is annoying you or whom you dislike. For example,
a family of a different nationality may become neighbours
and even though you may not be racist, you may have difficulty
in accepting their different manners and customs. This remedy
is also good for older people who are very set in their ways.

revulsion, loathing or disgust of an aspect of oneself.
pleasure, enjoyment; acceptance of one's physical body.
For feelings of shame,
self disgust and self loathing. For those people who feel
revolted and dirty about sex and feel unclean afterwards.
It can also be for feelings of revulsion about other physical
aspects such as acne, eczema, a large nose, etc. Read
more about Billy Goat Plum in case
Negative: Rushing, always
on the go, impatience, always striving.
Positive: Slowing down,
ability to turn inward and be still, inner peace.
For people who are impatient or
always 'on the go.' These people are continually rushing and
their lives are always overflowing with commitments. This
Essence enables these people to slow down, to reach that still
centre within and find calmness and inner guidance.
Negative: Cut off from feelings,
fear of lack or greed.
Positive: Opens the heart,
Made in the Olgas, one of the main
spiritual centres in Australia, this Essence helps to open
the heart. It is for those who feel cut off from their feelings.
The emotion is there, but is held within. They are subconsciously
afraid to express it for they fear their feelings of love,
joy, etc., are finite or not renewable. They operate from
a subconscious fear that there is just not enough and that
if they let go of what they have, they will not survive. This
fear can often be marked by a controlling, rigid and forthright
manner. Read more about Bluebell.
Positive: releases past
negative actions within families—abuse, prejudice. Releases
negative thought patterns, releases deep held emotion.
Negative: taking on negative
family thought patterns, repetition of past negative experiences.
The Boab Tree is found only in
the Kimberley region of north west Australia. This is one
of the most powerful of all the Bush Essences and has brought
about profound change. Boab clears negative emotional and
mental family patterns that are passed on from generation
to generation. Boab can access and clear those core patterns
and all the related ensuing beliefs. This Essence is very
beneficial in helping those who have had experiences of abuse
or prejudice from others. Also Boab will help clear the negative
lines of karma between people. When used in a spray, it can
be very effective in clearing negative energies, especially
when combined with Fringed Violet,
Angelsword, and Lichen. Boab can
help break the chains that have been around human consciousness
for thousands of years. See the tree this essence was made from ... it is hollow
and was used as a prison, up to 30 prisoners could be held
at one time. Read more about Boab.
Negative: Obsessive thoughts,
pining for recently ended relationships.
Positive: Serenity, clarity
of mind and thought.
This is the Essence for resolving
obsessions - thoughts, events, things or ideas which are stuck.
It leads to clarity and focus. It combines wonderfully with
Bottlebrush for dealing with an ended relationship, when there
is pining for the other person. It also enhances focus for
Negative: For going through
and being overwhelmed by major life changes.
Positive: Bonding between
mother and child, serenity, letting go.
This Essence helps people move
through major life changes and the overwhelm that often goes
with those changes, especially retirement, menopause, adolescence
or death, etc. It 'brushes' out the past and allows the person
to move on. An excellent remedy for pregnant women and new
mothers who feel inadequate. It will help throughout pregnancy
until after the birth and will assist with bonding between
the mother and child. This Essence is often only needed for
Negative: Inability to balance
the logical and rational with the intuitive and creative,
switched off, ignoring gut feelings.
Positive: Allows one to
integrate information, develops intuition.
This Essence assists with problem
solving and improves one's access to intuition - it helps
a person to trust their own 'gut' feelings. It allows for
balance between the logical/rational and the intuitive/creative,
i.e., the integration between the male and female aspects.
It will give people courage and clarity in public speaking
as well as the ability to speak out about their own convictions.
Negative: Taking for granted,
unaware of others, self-centeredness.
Positive: Renews interest
in others, improves communication, passion.
For renewing passion and interest
in relationships. It helps draw together those who are moving
away from one another, busy in their own world (career, life,
etc.). It is as if this Essence helps to turn the individual's
head to reconnect to see what their partner is doing and feeling
and to discover what is needed to bring them back together.
It is not only for male/female relationships but also for
family relationships. This flower has similar flowers and
scent to that of the suburban garden shrub but is a 40 ft.
tree, growing in the tropical north, similar in shape to a
Negative: Fear of death,
materialism, atheism, excessiveness.
Positive: Spiritual insights,
understanding beyond the material/physical.
This was one of the first Essences
to be prepared. It is an Essence to open people up to their
spirituality and to access the doorway to their higher perceptions.
It allows the trinity to flow into a person and is an excellent
remedy to give someone who has just started meditation or
'conscious' spiritual growth. In the negative mode there will
be materialism and/or atheism. There may also be a deep seated
fear of death. This Essence helps the spirit move from the
Earth to the spiritual planes at the time of death.
Negative: When experiencing
a sense of lack, poor stewardship of one's possessions
Positive: To help manifest
one's desired outcome.
Bell is an erect perennial herb which is frequently found
in the Hawkesbury Sandstone country of NSW in the low open
heaths or swamps.
It grows up to 60cm high with a crowd of yellow tipped, red
fused, tubed flowers at the top. Christmas Bell's flowering
time is from late December hence its name up until February.
Christmas is the time of year associated with the joy of giving
and receiving, not only of love, but also from the realm of
the material, too. This remedy assists one with mastery of
the physical plane and with stewardship of one's possessions.
It also helps one to manifest their desired outcomes and is
extremely beneficial for anyone experiencing a sense of lack.
For people who are feeling 'not
quite right' with themselves and are just a little out of
balance. An excellent Essence for people not sure of what
it is they are feeling. It is great for worry and distress.
It is for those who always have something to worry about without
having specific fears. This purple flower has five petals
with a prominent raised centre. Five in numerology relates
to the emotional centre and the integration of emotions.
Negative: Resentment, bitterness
towards close family, friends, lovers.
Positive: Forgiveness, open
expression of feelings.
For people who feel resentment
and bitterness and hold grudges against those with whom they
have been very close, e.g., family members and old lovers.
This resentment is often not openly displayed. The plant gets
its name from the needle-like barb that grows on its leaves.
Negative: Fearful, shy,
insecure, apprehensive of others, niggling fears.
Positive: Confidence, courage,
belief in self.
The striking feature of Dog Rose
is that the flowers hang down and appear to have dropped and
rounded shoulders, like a defeated person. Dog Rose is the
Essence for treating fears, niggling little fears, not terror.
Overcoming fear allows an increase in the flow of the vital
force, quality of life, courage and self esteem. It is also
for shy, insecure, timid, nervous people.
Positive: emotional balance,
calmness, sanity in times of turmoil.
Negative: fear of loss of
control, physical pain with no apparent cause.
Found only in Victoria, this Essence
was made up from a plant quivering and leaning over the surging
white water just below Mackenzie Falls, in Gariwerd, (previously
known as The Grampians). This plant is commonly found growing
close to the water and, like Dog Rose, it deals with fear.
It is taken when a person has a fear of losing control, when
the emotions they are feeling within themselves or immediately
around them are just so intense there is a sense of losing
total control. On a higher level, it helps to teach the necessity
of gaining control over the emotions so that emotional intensity
will not distort one's natural energies.
Negative: Low self esteem,
dislike of self, held-in personality.
Positive: Love and acceptance
of self, celebration of own beauty.
This tall, proud shrub gets its
name from its fruit which has five corners. Five Corners corresponds
with the anatomical position of arms and legs spread with
the fifth point being the head. This Essence allows the life
force to flow through to these five centres. When this happens
a person feels good and strong in themselves. They feel their
own love and beauty. The Essence resolves low self esteem,
lack of confidence and diminished self love. In the negative
mode the person will appear crushed and 'held in'.
Negative: Dislike of being
touched, lack of sensitivity—especially in males.
Positive: Gentleness, sensitivity
in touching, joy, trust, sensuality.
The petals in this flower resemble
the sensuous texture of flannel. It almost begs to be touched
and felt. This Essence is for people who are uncomfortable
with physical contact and touching. They often have difficulty
in maintaining their personal boundaries. It is primarily
for males, allowing for a gentleness, softness and sensitivity
in touching. It helps one trust and express, especially verbally,
their inner feelings. It brings enjoyment to physical expression
for both males and females.
Negative: Heart closed
due to prejudices that have been taught, not personally experienced.
appreciation of beauty in others, releases and heals mental
prejudice. Opens the heart.
This flowering tree grows beside
fresh water creeks, billabongs, and swamps in the Northern
Territory. The healing quality of the Essence is to release
and heal mental prejudice, allowing the heart to open without
prejudgement. The prejudice of Slender Rice Flower stems from direct personal experience
whereas Freshwater Mangrove is for those who mentally reject
or have already made up their mind about something without
it ever being experienced. Often the seeds of this prejudice
have been sown for a long time. In many cases it is generational,
as in the case of countries where religious prejudice is passed
on and accepted by the young without question. Many prejudices
are built because of cultural or societal belief that something
cannot be done. This Essence has the potential to allow us
to fully experience and be open on both a mental and heart
level to new perceptual shifts and all the changes occurring
at this time.
Negative: Distress, damage
to aura, drained by others/situations.
Positive: Removes effects
of past or present distress, psychic protection.
For treating damage to the aura
where there has been shock, grief, or distress, e.g., from
abuse or assault. This remedy maintains psychic protection,
especially for those working in psychic areas. When used in
combination with Flannel Flower or Wisteria it is
beneficial for those who have suffered abuse.
The Green Essence is made from
the stems and leaves of traditional fresh green herbs using
the method we use to make flower essences. It is used to clean
the system of yeast, mold and parasites. It can be taken orally
for a two week period, five drops five minutes before meals.
Topically Green Essence can be
used to treat skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis or fungal
infections. Place seven drops of Green Essence in a dessert
bowl of water, splash on the affected area and allow to dry.
do this morning and night for two weeks. You will need to
make a fresh batch every two days. Do not use the Green
Essence externally at the same time as it is taken internally
as the reaction can be too strong - the skin may peel.
If you are using Green Essence
to treat Candida, the following regime is recommended.
Both Green Essence and Peach-flowered Tea-tree are to be taken
for two weeks, the former before meals three times a day.
For the next two week period take a combination of Spinifex,
Bottlebrush, and Peach-flowered Tea-tree morning and night.
Then take the Peach-flowered Tea-tree again for a further
two weeks morning and night.
At the beginning of the process
take for one month a good brand of acidophilus and bifidus
powder, which should have been refrigerated prior to purchase
and certainly after opening. During this time avoid sugary
and yeasty foods such as alcohol, vinegar, yeasted bread etc.
You can douche if necessary morning
and night for two weeks with Green Essence. To make it, place
seven drops of Green Essence in a bowl of water. After you
have completed 2 weeks douching, take Green Essence internally
for two or four weeks. Alternatively the Green Essence can
be taken before commencing the two weeks of douching.
NEVER use Green Essence orally
and topically at the same time (risk of peeling skin).
Green is also for people with allergies
to mold and who have fungal infections, like toenail fungus.
This remedy was also made up in
Gariwerd (The Grampians) Victoria and is very much aligned
with higher learnings, philosophies and deeper insight. This
Essence can assist in working with telepathy, to attune a
person to be more receptive to not only other people but also
other species and kingdoms. It is for people who are teaching
spiritual matters and understandings, helping them to impart
that knowledge. It helps us to know when to share about our
spiritual experiences, ideas before they are manifested and
incomplete projects and when to remain silent to let the energy
build. Green Spider Orchid can release nightmares, terror
and phobias stemming from past lives.
This is an Essence to deal with
extreme terror, especially terror experienced in life-threatening
situations or psychic attack. It deals with panic and nightmares.
The Essence will restore faith and trust. Interestingly enough
every time I picked this flower to make the Essence I came
across a spider. There is a theory that spiders are an archetypal
image for primordial fear.
More Info: This strange but very interesting flower is found in sandstone country
around Sydney – it is quite common in the Terrey Hills
area. The flower head is a browny grey cluster of florets
on long curving ‘legs' and is quite furry – not
unlike a rather untidy large huntsman spider. Many people
react in fear to this flower while others see past the initial
impact of the arachnid image and into the comforting, gentle
energy within the flower. The pistils at the end of each ‘leg'
resemble a little monkey face with wide open mouth, as though
it has been shocked by something very frightening.
This essence is, of course, to do with resolving terror and
bringing about courage, calmness and faith. But this
is not a rescuing energy like the Waratah. It is more
a supportive energy, encouraging you to face and move through
your greatest fears, knowing that someone (the Grey Spider
energy) is there by your side. When people are experiencing
terror, their astral body is usually fully or partly disconnected
from their physical body and this is why it is not uncommon
to experience an inability to move, or to feel frozen.
Grey Spider Flower will reconnect the astral
to the physical. This remedy will help where there
is fear of dying, losing our identity or fear of something
so terrifying that there is real danger that we may not survive
it. It helps when a terrifying event occurs unexpectedly
throwing you into a state of shock. Fringed Violet
would also help in this situation. Grey Spider Flower
deals with stage fright, claustrophobia and other immobilising
fears. This essence is one of the ingredients in the Emergency
Essence combination and this combination, together with Dog
Rose, can help with panic attacks. Grey Spider Flower
can deal with the fear involved with severe asthma and can
ease nightmares – particularly those relating to current
Positive: humility, awareness
and appreciation of others.
Negative: pride, dominating
personality, status seekers.
Also known as the Giant Lily, this
extraordinary plant bears large red flowers on a huge terminal
head atop a stem of up to four metres high. Being so high
the flowers are not seen clearly from the ground. This remedy
is for excessive pride and arrogance and helps bring about
humility. The Essence is for reaching up to the energy of
arrogance and transforming it to achieve great heights. It
gives strength to those who are ahead of their peers and helps
them to stay at the top. Gymea Lily is also very beneficial
for people whose personalities are very intense or extrovert,
or those who are dominating, demanding, and very charismatic,
who usually get their way. It is also for people who like
to be seen and noticed and who seek glamour and status.
Positive: Acceptance of
self and own innate knowledge.
For people who are strict and regimented
or even fanatical with themselves or for whose who use their
knowledge to gain an upper hand. They constantly devour information
and philosophies purely to make themselves better people but
often without truly integrating it. In the positive mode these
people will be accepting of themselves and their own innate
knowledge and experiences, without wanting to be superior
An Essence for those who suffer
from a great sense of rejection, or who feel 'left out'. This
rejection is deeply felt and is very agonising for the person.
The Essence is also for self rejection, or for a person feeling
apprehensive about a new experience, e.g., parenthood, or
where there is a fear of responsibility. This Essence will
help a person take that first step. It is also beneficial
for those whose numbers in numerology are 11, 22, or 33—people
who have usually chosen to do very important work this life.
Negative: Unable to learn
from past experience, controlling personality.
Positive: Able to learn
from past experiences, remember the past.
This Essence is for those who live
very much in their heads. They are dominated by their intellect
and there is often a separation between their heart and head.
This Essence, like Tall Yellow Top, connects the heart and the head. It
especially benefits those people who control through stubbornness.
It also enables the retrieval of long-forgotten skills and
information. The small spiral arrangement of this plant's
yellow flowers fade and leave a small, grey, round nut which
will stay on the plant for many years. In spiritual symbolism
the colour yellow represents wisdom and knowledge.
An Essence for people who dither,
never completing things because they are constantly changing
them. There is a fine distinction between Sundew
and Jacaranda. Sundew deals with dreamers
(the 'space cadet'), whilst Jacaranda is for those who dither,
are 'all over the place' and are always changing their mind.
Negative: Socially immature,
clumsy, gauche, insensitive to others needs.
Positive: Relaxed, sensitivity,
savoire faire, enjoyment of people.
This Essence is for people who
are 'green' and socially inept. They do not know how to properly
interact with other people. They can be very insensitive because
they are so focused on themselves that they miss the cues
and needs of other people around them. They can be very self
Positive: Persistence, willingness
to "give it a go," application.
Mount Barnett, an Aboriginal Cattle
Station on the rugged Gibb River Road in the Kimberleys, was
where I made this Essence. It is for people who have
a tendency to give up very easily, who are easily discouraged.
It can also give people an overview of a plan or situation
and then allow them to work it through sequentially and be
able to bring it to fruition. It could even be for someone
with a piece of technology or machinery, to assist them to
understand how it works.
Used to assist in helping the individual's
spirit to let go of the body after death. It brings home to
the spirit the understanding of the need to leave the planet
and go through to the Light. Specifically for those suffering
from a terminal illness as it helps them to come to terms
with their illness.
Negative: Denial of the
"child" in the personality, seriousness.
Positive: Playfulness, joy,
ability to have fun.
This Essence deals with the child
aspect in us all. It addresses the expression of playfulness,
being carefree and spontaneous joy. It is for people who regard
life as a very sombre and serious experience. It is also for
children who tend to grow up much too quickly, who take on
the troubles of the world and get old before their time. It
helps children get in contact with their spirit guides. Its
delicate, tiny, white flowers cover the bush with a blanket
of colour and white light, yet it is easily overlooked due
to its size.
Positive: Renews enthusiasm.
Strong affinity to the adrenal glands, bringing about energy,
Macrocarpa is a Eucalypt that grows
in the wheat belt area of South West Western Australia, the
stands of which are becoming increasingly rare and very few
survive today. This tree has the largest flower of any Eucalypt.
Both the tree and the flower have a tremendous power about
them and this comes out in its properties. This Essence brings
about renewed enthusiasm, endurance, and inner strength.
Positive: calmness, ability
to move on, readiness for initiation.
Negative: spiritual trial
& tribulation, despair, overwhelm, perturbation, and confusion.
This Essence like many others,
was made in the Valley of the Winds in the Olgas (or Katajuta)
in central Australia. Mint Bush is for the spiritual trials
and tribulations that one goes through just prior to initiation,
when one feels they are being tested, often to their limits.
At this time there is usually a great deal of confusion, and
there can even be a sense of being in a void. There is not
the total despair of the Waratah, but very much the feeling
that everything is too difficult and too much to deal with
and resolve. It helps one cope with the dross being burnt
off before emerging at a new spiritual level.
Like its close relative, Waratah, Monga Waratah has a very powerful energy. This essence
can help one find their inner strength, which then enables
them to reach out. It addresses the negative conditions of
disempowerment; of being overly needy; of feeling not strong
enough; of feeling unable to do things alone; of always needing
the strength and support of others; of feeling choked or stifled
in situations or relationships and feeling unable to leave.
Addresses co-dependency as well as strengthens one's will.
Consequently, it can be thought of when working with addictions.
Wedding Bush is used to maintain
resolve and commitment in doing, or giving up, something;
whereas Monga Waratah comes in that step before, to give one
the belief and sense that one can break out of dependency
on a behavior, substance, or person. This essence helps one
to reclaim their spirit.
This Essence helps one deal with
feelings of hatred, anger, jealousy and the major blocks to
expressing love. It is for people who tend to be suspicious
of others. Mountain Devil helps to develop unconditional love
and acceptance. It helps one express anger in a healthy way
and so develop sound boundaries. This may open the way to
associated with exposure to fire, heat, and sun.
Positive: Reduces the negative
effects of fire and the sun's rays.
Mulla Mulla is for the personal
recovery from the shattering experience of burns from heat
or fire. This Essence reduces the negative effects of fire
and the sun's rays. It is for those with a fear of fire or
flames (often from a past life). If this fear is unconscious
it will often manifest in a lack of vitality, as if they wish
to fade away. If a person presents with this picture they
can, with appropriate counseling, reveal this fear of fire
or hot objects. This Essence was made up in Palm Valley, one
of the hottest parts of the country and where some of the
oldest plants in Australia are found.
Negative: Low in energy,
sluggishness, disheartened, weary, low thyroid activity.
Positive: Ability to cope
with whatever life brings. Energy, enthusiasm, enjoyment of
and interest in life.
For people who are weary, frustrated,
and disheartened by setbacks. This Essence helps to bring
a spark into those people's lives who are heavy and slow moving.
They tend to be reliable, dependable people who steadily plod
on, often hiding their weariness while battling on with unceasing
effort. The Old Man Banksia is a gnarled and twisted tree
and it seems to be a storehouse of old wisdom. It is one of
the first plants discovered by Joseph Banks.
For the assimilation and integration
of new ideas and information, especially where there is a
tendency to feel overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of
that information. A feature of this plant is its very narrow
stem which, at the top, branches into a mass of foliage to
bear large and ponderous fruits. This Essence should be used
when one is unable to solve a problem. It will activate the
Higher Self, where we have the answer to all our problems.
It will ease the burden of problems as it activates the intuitive
processes to provide solutions.
This is an Essence for people with
extreme mood swings, hypochondriacal people and especially
those who have a fear of getting old. It can also be used
for people who get enthusiastic and then, for no apparent
reason, lose that enthusiasm. It is for those who do not 'follow
through' on their goals and convictions. Once the challenge
goes they become bored and lose interest. It will help develop
stability, consistency, drive, and commitment.
Negative: Excessive generosity,
inability to accept acknowledgment.
Positive: Ability to accept
praise, acknowledgment, and love.
This Essence allows people to accept
acknowledgment for their achievements and to 'let in' love.
They are often good listeners and generous, giving people.
It allows shy people to speak of their plans and success.
In its natural environment, the flower is easily overlooked
and often mistaken for other species.
Philotheca is a five petalled pink
flower which grows in coastal districts in Queensland and
New South Wales. It is sometimes confused with Eristemon which
has a similar flower but is a taller plant and a more prolific
grower. As a Flower Essence this flower can help those who
find it difficult to accept praise and acknowledgement from
others. The beautiful, supportive female energy of the Philotheca
will help to sustain people who, because of their natural
reticence, tend to be overshadowed by others. It will promote
self esteem where a person always yields to others, not from
weakness, but just because of a retiring personality and a
natural generosity. This essence will support, but will not
rescue. The energy the Philotheca is something that of a loving
aunt who will encourage you to do something, and support you
100%, but will not step in and do it for you. This essence
could be good for anyone involved in caring for others, enabling
them to receive as well as to give. It is good for the family
member or employee who always moves into the role of support
person and who is embarrassed if they are thanked or praised.
Philotheca will support convalescence, allowing a person to
take the rest needed and feeling comfortable about allowing
others to do things for him. It helps shy people speak about
their dreams and successes. This essence in included in the
Abund Essence because of its quality of helping a person to
be open to receive abundance on all levels.
Unhappy, Taking for granted, Unmindful, Feeling and seeing
life to be dull, flat and lack lustre, Easily annoyed, Unthankful.
Gratefulness, Being appreciative, Open hearted, Joie de vivre,
Lightness of being, Heart intelligence.
This flower is all about heart
energy, which is not surprising when you observe the intensity
of its pink center. It allows one to be in a state of gratitude
for all aspects of their life and for what they are experiencing
around them. Pink Flannel Flower brings about an appreciation
of, and helps one take delight and pleasure in, the details
and little things in life, to see and be aware of the blessings
in every moment. Otherwise, life can easily become dull, flat
and one’s 'joie de vivre' will be missing.
This Essence has great affinity
for young babies whilst both in the womb and in those early
years of life. Pink Flannel Flower will help keep both their
heart and heart chakra open with the high love vibration they
have come in with, as they adjust to the density of third
dimensional reality. Bluebell would be used to open the heart
after it has closed down but for young children Pink Flannel
Flower helps their heart to remain open.
Negative: deep hurt, guarded/isolated,
This annual is found in the stony
country of the outback and has a striking, pinky- purple conical
flower head. The Pink Mulla Mulla is for those who have suffered
a deep spiritual wound long ago, often in their first incarnation,
where they felt abandoned by Spirit which has led to a deep
scar on the soul and psyche. It works on the outer causal
bodies clearing sabotage (and fear of spiritual abandonment
once more) that is stopping their spiritual growth. On an
emotional level, Pink Mulla Mulla is for those who put out
prickles to keep people away. They tend to be quite isolated
and unable to resolve a hurt, wrong, or injustice that can
be felt very deeply. This impinges on their attitude to those
around them and can make them suspicious of people's motives,
allowing them no rest. They are often on guard against people
hurting them again, they may protect themselves by saying
hurtful things to others. What they say to those around them
does not always reflect how they really feel. It is merely
a way of keeping people at a safe distance.
Negative: Feeling stuck,
affected by criticism, reliant on others.
Positive: Strength to leave
unpleasant situations, boldness.
This Essence is for people who
feel stuck. It acts as a catalyst for those who know what
they want to achieve but do not know how to go about it. It
is for people who are too reliant on others. It promotes independence
and boldness. This Essence is extremely effective though the
changes may not be as anticipated. Like the Grey Spider Flower
this plant is a member of the Grevillea family and its flowers
are a dark red colour, similar in colour to the Waratah.
This Essence was made up under
unique circumstances on Toolrunup Peak, the second highest
peak in the Stirling Ranges. Red Helmet Orchid helps a man
bond to his child or children. It helps men to be aware to
allocate quality family time. Making this Essence required
not only sunlight but also moonlight, thereby adding the feminine
principle so as to allow bonding. It is also for unresolved
father issues, which can manifest as a recurrent, lifelong
rebellious attitude to authority figures - police, headmasters,
Positive: Grounded, focused,
living in the present. See also Sundew.
Red Lily is the same flower as
the Sacred Lotus in the Buddhist tradition. It is for spirituality
and connection to God in a grounded and centered way. It has
similar properties to that of Sundew. It is for feeling scattered,
not whole, vague and split. Kristin and I waded
thigh deep in mud through a billabong teeming with leeches,
turtles and snakes to pick this flower. Such is the joy of
The Essences of this deep blood
red Frangipani was made on the coast near Darwin in the Northern
Territory. It is unusual in that it does not have the sweet
aromatic quality of other Frangipanis but rather a very heavy,
musky odor. Its common name in the Pacific is "Bleeding Heart
Frangipani." This Essence addresses the great emotional intensity,
difficulty, and hardship that people can go through when a
relationship is ending, close to ending or going through a
very "rocky" period. It can also be taken for the enormous
initial pain and sadness of the loss of a loved one. The person
can be feeling greatly disturbed, not suicidal as in the case
of Waratah, but torn apart by the event
or situation. Sturt Desert Pea
deals with unresolved grief from the past.
Negative: openly malicious,
total lack of concern for others' feelings, manipulative,
This Essence was made in the spiritual
centre of Australia in the Olgas also known as Katajuta by
the Aborigines. This is an Essence to help people fully express
the love vibration innate within them. Rough Bluebell is for
people who are very manipulative and for those who are deliberately
malicious and use people, either subtly or openly. It is different
from Kangaroo Paw, which is for those
who hurt or ignore the needs of others in an unconscious way.
This Essence can be for those who play the role of the martyr
and like to have others obligated to them. They are aware
of the needs of others but want love and affection for themselves
and are not concerned about or unable to give it back.
Negative: Distress associated
with infertility. Infertility, female hormone imbalance, PMS.
Positive: Overcomes imbalances
in females. Fertility, conception, hormonal balance.
An Essence which is very beneficial
in overcoming imbalances in and bringing about a sense of
wellbeing in females. It will benefit women who feel distressed
about infertility. It removes those personal blocks that prevent
conception. It can also be used in conjunction with Flannel
Flower which will help remove karmic patterns hindering conception.
The fruit of this tree is very similar in size to a woman's
ovary. This Essence was made from the female tree of the species.
Negative: Aimless, despondent,
lacking life direction.
Positive: Life purpose and
This is another rare Eucalypt.
Although widely cultivated there is only one remaining natural
stand of this beautiful tree on a granite outcrop known as
Boyagin Rock in the south west of Western Australia. Of all
the Eucalypts, there is none more attractive than the Silver
Princess. This Essence brings about an awareness of one's
life direction. Though it may not always reveal to a person
their full life plan, it will aid people who are at crossroads,
helping to show them what their next step is. It helps give
them an understanding of that direction. This Essence is also
excellent when one has reached an important goal and yet one
is left feeling very flat, thinking 'is this all there is'.
In this case, it gives one a glimpse or a sense of what is
next and allows one to enjoy the journey whilst striving for
Positive: Cooperation, humility,
appreciation of beauty in others.
Slender Rice Flower is for people
who are racist, narrow minded and lack humility. Humanity
has, through its many wars, seen the grim ramifications of
these attitudes. This Essence can be used for group harmony
and conflict resolution when individual egos get in the way.
It allows for greater co-operation between people for the
common good. This Essence has the ability to make an individual
aware of the common divinity in all people.
Positive: Personal power,
positive attitude, responsibility for self.
This is another Essence made in
the Stirling Ranges of Western Australia. It is for those
people who have a tendency to feel that they are a victim,
that life has been hard on them or that they have been hard
done by. This Essence helps people to understand that they
create all the situations that happen to them in life and
that they can change their situation by changing their thoughts.
Negative: Sense of being
a victim to illness. Herpes, chlamydia, fine cuts.
Positive: Empowers through
emotional understanding to heal the physical, works well topically
on cuts and lesions.
Spinifex is a native grass which
prefers the arid and semi-arid areas of inland Australia.
This was the first Essence made from a grass species. It is
for those who have a sense of being a victim to and having
no control over illnesses, especially those with persistent
and recurring symptoms.
Positive: Allows one to
follow own inner convictions and morality.
This Essence is for guilt. It is
also for following your own inner convictions and morality,
helping you to follow through with what you know you have
to do. It can restore self esteem that has been damaged by
past actions you may have felt guilty about.
Positive: Grounded, focused,
similar to Red Lily - specifically
for those under 28 years of age.
This Essence is for people who
are vague and indecisive and do not pay attention to detail.
For those who tend to 'split off' easily, especially when
there is work to be done. This Essence will keep them focused
in the present. It is for those who tend to be daydreamers,
easily distracted or drawn to drugs. This carnivorous plant
is found in damp, boggy areas and has a crimson, 'earth-hugging'
base. It sends up a tall stem to which delicate little flowers
Negative: Struggle, stuck
in the past, expectation of a grim future.
Positive: Optimism, acceptance
of the beauty and joy in the present.
For people who have had a difficult
time in the past and who are stuck there. They bring their
negative experiences of the past into the present. Life is
seen as being grim and full of struggle. When they look at
life they only see bleakness, hard times and disappointment
continuing into the future. In the positive mode these people
will see the beauty, joy and excitement in the present and
optimistically anticipate the future.
Negative: Feeling separate;
deserted; unloved or morbid.
we are all one; feeling safe and at peace; heartfelt communication.
This is the crowning glory of the
Bush Essences. The healing quality of this remarkable essence
is to realize and know - on a deep heart level, not merely
on an intellectual level - that there is no separation between
us, that we are all one. Feelings of being unloved, deserted,
melancholic, even morbid may arise to be cleansed before one
experiences the positive qualities - the sense of oneness,
at-one-ment, peace, feeling safe, and feeling fulfilled.
Positive: feeling secure
with people, social interaction.
Negative: feeling scared,
lack of interaction, feeling unsafe.
This is another Essence which was
made up in the Olgas or Katajuta. It is a small upright annual
with a long pink-purple flower head. It is for people who
are not at ease being with others. They prefer their own company
and enjoy being alone but miss out on the emotional growth
that interaction with others can bring. On an emotional level
there is not much "circulating with people", as it feels too
troublesome and uncomfortable. They do not easily mix with
others. They prefer to be alone where they know their own
environment and can avoid confrontation with others. They
will often go to any length to keep the peace even if it means
agreeing to or saying things they don't believe. They do not
breathe in life deeply for they prefer holding on to the familiar
rather than being open to the new.
This Essence is for alienation.
There is no feeling of connection or sense of belonging to
family, workplace, country, self, etc. Often as a consequence
of this alienation the head, or intellect, takes over from
the heart. As many people have been in this state for a long
time, Tall Yellow Top will often need to be used for longer
periods, sometimes for up to 6-8 weeks without a break. It
is important when in this state to reach out to others for
support. Be patient with the results from this Essence if
it appears to be a little slow in acting. The results are
well worth waiting for.
We made this Essence in Katherine
Gorge, at the top end of Australia. This region contains the
world's oldest known continuous artwork in the form of Aboriginal
rock paintings. It is appropriate that the Essence was made
here as it is for creativity. It is for both the beginner
and the artist. Turkey Bush allows them to tune into their
Higher Self and helps them to move through creative blocks
and discouragements. This Essence brings about a desire to
express and allows creativity to flow.
For the person who is going through
the 'black night of the soul' and is in utter despair. It
gives them the strength and courage to cope with their crisis
and will bring their survival skills to the fore. This remedy
will also enhance and amplify those skills. It is for emergencies
and great challenges. This powerful remedy often only needs
to be used for four or five days. The Waratah Essence was
made with great assistance and guidance in profound metaphysical
circumstances, from what was known to be the last flowering
Waratah of the season.
Negative: Difficulty with
commitment in relationships.
Positive: Commitment in
relationships, dedication to life purpose.
Wedding Bush is for people who
have difficulty in committing themselves to relationships,
whether they be personal, social or business. This Essence
can be taken when people begin a union or partnership. It
is usually used for people who flit from one relationship
to another, or when the initial attraction fails.
Negative: Sense of being
weighed down and encumbered.
Positive: Freedom to move
on in life.
This Essence is for those who feel
heavy and need to step out of the old self, but who feel it
is difficult to do so. It enables them to go forward with
renewed enthusiasm. These people feel burdened with the physical
body. It also helps with feelings of physical restriction
Negative: Women who feel
uncomfortable and uptight about their sexuality. Fear arising
from sexual abuse.
Positive: Fulfilling sexual
This Essence is for women who are
uncomfortable with their sexuality. In some cases it may be
beneficial to use it with Fringed
Violet especially for those who have had unfortunate sexual
experiences. Wisteria also benefits the 'macho male' personality
and allows him to be more aware of his softer, feminine aspects.
Flannel Flower, on the other hand,
will help the male express these feminine aspects.
Yellow is the colour
that symbolises the intellect and the element of Air. This
orchid has a very social and gregarious nature and is commonly
found growing in clusters. The element of Air is very concerned
with social order, group activity and harmony. When out of
balance there is excessive judgement and criticism.
