Flower Essence- Giving and receiving
Planetary Characteristics: Saturn
Latin Name:‘Mahonia aquifolium’
From the Flower Attunement Guidebook-
In medical astrology, our skin and our bones are ruled by Saturn. Saturn teaches us boundaries and self-preservation. Life is a balance of being open and being closed at the right times. Just like the Moon, we have to honor our cycles. When we are taught that self-preservation is selfish, we act out in unhealthy ways by becoming closed off to the world and its potential gifs of love.
Oregon grape helps teach us healthy boundaries. Its medicinal qualities are known for treating many types of conditions and are used often as antifungal treatment, eczema cream, psoriasis treatment, and rash aid. Our skin is a helpful site for self-reflection. It tells us when we are unbalanced and when our boundaries have been crossed, on an emotional and spiritual level. Oregon grape flower essence helps us to find balance. Its spiky leaves remind us to strengthen our boundaries, while its beautiful flowers remind us to shine. Its fruit-bearing quality helps us to feel nourished in giving and receiving love.
Flower essence tinctures work by modifying energy flow through the typical acupuncture meridians. Shifts in these energetic patterns influence the consciousness in helpful ways both emotionally and physically. These homeopathic remedies can be described as “vibrational” or energy medicine. Flowers themselves contain the highest concentration of life force energy of the plant. Through the sun infusion method, we can harness the healing vibrational pattern and energy of the flower. This is imprinted in the water and then preserved as medicine. Preserved with brandy but can be replaced with glycerin upon request.
The flower essence of Oregon Grape is only the vibration of the plant and no plant material is used in the harvesting process.
This can be used as a tincture ingested neat, or added to water, tea whatever you feel. I recommend one drop in water three times a day. All of the essences can also be added to a bath.
