Brief Guidelines

The Essences work best when either given individually 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 majority of the Essences should be used for two weeks at a time.  If, at the 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 issue, if applicable.

When taking an Essence, it is important to be aware of the positive virtues of the Essence and the negative emotions it addresses.

The Essences are self adjusting and will release the layers of blocked emotions to whatever "point of resolution" the patient, at the time, is prepared to travel.

Recommended Dosage

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.

Prostanthera cuneato

Alpine Mint Bush

Add to Shopping Cart

Positive: revitalisation, joy, renewal

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. 

Lobelia gibbosa


Add to Shopping Cart

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, looking
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.

Autumn Leaves - (Companion Essence)

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

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: Cut off from feelings, fear of lack or greed.

Positive: Opens the heart, joy, sharing.

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.

It also helps one to manifest their desired outcomes and is extremely beneficial for anyone experiencing a sense of lack.

Five in numerology relates to the emotional centre and the integration of emotions.

Bauera rubioides

Dog Rose

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Back to Flower Essences

Bauera sessiliflora

Dog Rose of the Wild Forces

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Styphelia laeta

Five Corners

Add to Shopping Cart

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'.

Actinotus helianthi

It helps one trust and express, especially verbally, their inner feelings. It brings enjoyment to physical expression for both males and females.

Barringtonia acutangula

Freshwater Mangrove

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative:  Heart closed due to prejudices that have been taught, not personally experienced.

Positive:  Humility, 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.

Thysanotus tuberosus

Fringed Violet

Add to Shopping Cart

When used in combination with Flannel Flower or Wisteria it is beneficial for those who have suffered abuse.

Green - (Companion Essence)

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Caladenia dilatato

Green Spider Orchid

Add to Shopping Cart

Positive: attunement, ability to guard information, release of terrors & phobias.

Negative: nightmares, needing acceptance, phobias.

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.

Grevillea buxifolia

Grey Spider Flower

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Terror, panic.

Positive: Faith and courage.

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 life times. 

Doryanthes excelsa

Gymea Lily

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Negative: Fanaticism - self improvement/ discipline/knowledge.

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.

Brachychiton acerifolium

Illawarra Flame Tree

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Sense of rejection, being left out, fear of responsibility.

Positive: Self-approval, self-reliance, confidence, inner strength.

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.

Isopogon anethifolius


Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Scattered, changeable, dithering, aimless, rushing.

Positive: Decisiveness, clear mindedness, quick thinking.

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.

Positive: Relaxed, sensitivity, savoire faire, enjoyment of people.

Kapok Bush

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Easily discouraged, resignation, apathy.

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.

Lichen - (Companion Essence)

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Actinotus minor

Little Flannel Flower

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Eucalyptus macrocarpa


Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Personally drained. Tired, exhausted, burnt-out, low immunity.

Positive: Renews enthusiasm. Strong affinity to the adrenal glands, bringing about energy, strength,

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.

Prostanthera striatflora

Mint Bush

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Monga Waratah

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Neediness, disempowerment; addictive personality.

Positive:  Strengthening one's will; self empowerment.

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. 

Lambertia formosa

Mountain Devil

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Hatred, anger, jealousy, holding of grudges, suspicious.

Positive: Unconditional love, forgiveness, happiness.

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 forgiveness.

Ptilotus atripicifolius

Mulla Mulla

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Distress/trauma 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.

Banksia serrata

Old Man Banksia

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Carica papaya

Paw Paw

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Overwhelm, burdened by decision.

Positive: Focus and clarity.

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.

Leptospermum squarrosum

Peach-Flowered Tea Tree

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Mood swings, lack of commitment.

Positive: Balance, responsibility for own health.

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.

Philotheca salsolifolia


Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Pink Flannel Flower

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative Condition: Unhappy, Taking for granted, Unmindful, Feeling and seeing life to be dull, flat and lack lustre, Easily annoyed, Unthankful.

Positive Outcome: 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.

Ptilotus exaltus

Pink Mulla Mulla

Add to Shopping Cart

Positive: overcoming obstacles, opening up, forgiveness.

Negative: deep hurt, guarded/isolated, feeling blocked.

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.

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.

Nelumbo nucifera

Red Lily

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Vagueness, indecisiveness, daydreaming.

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 discovery.

Suneiria rubra

Red Suva Frangipani

Add to Shopping Cart

Positive: feeling nurtured, equanimity, calmness.

Negative: turmoil, emotional upheaval, sadness.

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.

Trichodesma zeylanicum

Rough Bluebell

Add to Shopping Cart

Positive: unconditional love, openness, compassion, sensitivity.

Negative: openly malicious, total lack of concern for others' feelings, manipulative, hurtful.

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.

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.

Positive: Life purpose and direction, motivation.

This is another rare Eucalypt.

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 the goal.

Sydney Rose

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Feeling separate; deserted; unloved or morbid.

Positive:  Realizing 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.

Ptilotus helipteroides

Tall Mulla Mulla

Add to Shopping Cart

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.

Senecio magnificus

Tall Yellow Top

Add to Shopping Cart

Negative: Alienation, lonely, isolated

Positive: Sense of belonging.

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.
