About Corydalis Flower Essence
Our Wild Corydalis flower essence was made in a pristine high alpine region of Colorado. Corydalis comes from the Greek word korydalís, meaning "crested lark" due to the flower resembling a perched bird. This glorious massive four to five feet high perennial plant grows in moist, subalpine meadows and truly alpine moraine regions of south central Colorado and contains dense spires of fragrant white and pink flowers. It is a soft moist, almost succulent and tall plant with large fern-like leaves containing elastic walled pods that instantly curl back and explosively eject seeds when touched. A close relative of this plant, Yan hu suo, is traditionally used in Chinese Medicine for its marked ability to invigorate blood (increase circulation) and powerfully reduce pain.
As a flower essence, Wild Corydalis is an incredible energetic cleanser boldly moving through stagnation and blockages to create improved flow and increased feelings of well-being. It energetically oscillates and sweeps from the crown of the head to the soles of the feet, purifying and cleansing, for most resulting in palpable feelings of vitality and renewal. Just as the elastic walled pods explosively eject seeds when touched, this flower essence can powerfully and persistently move through and resolve negativity and stuck emotional baggage contributing to various types of dysfunction. This wildflower essence is especially effective when applied topically to the acupuncture points, meridians or areas of the body that require increased circulation and Prana or life force energy.
Ingredients: Spring water, 20% organic grape alcohol and infusion of Corydalis flower.
How to Use Corydalis Flower Essence
Due to the energetic nature of flower essences, it is important to not let the glass dropper touch anything other than the flower essence itself, in order to keep the essence as potent as possible. Flower essences have an extremely high level of safety and can be used by people of all ages, including babies, without concern. Flower essences are great for animals too.
- Internally: 1-2 drops on the tongue, four times a day or as desired. They can also be added to spring water and sipped on throughout the day.
- Externally: Flower essences can be applied topically to areas of the body, such as the acupuncture or marma points. A few drops can also be added to massage oil, body care products, clearing/room spray (spring water and essential oil blend), and numerous other ways.
Safety Considerations for Corydalis Flower Essence
Flower essences, an extremely safe energetic preparation, can be used by anyone. They do not interfere with other botanical preparations, supplements or pharmaceuticals.
Why Organic Grape Alcohol?
It is a superior preservative with no GMO concerns. If one is desiring to not consume alcohol, the flower essence can be applied topically or diluted in a large glass of spring water and sipped on throughout the day. In a typical dose of flower essence (1-2 drops), the alcohol content is extremely low.
What are Flower Essences?
Flower essences are a bio-energetic imprint of a flower that has been transferred and stabilized in water. Flower essences work on the non-material parts of ourselves and are used for emotional, mental, and spiritual concerns. Flower essences as a primary treatment for what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls Shen or Spirit. TCM views Shen or Spirit as containing aspects of emotional and mental health.
Each flower is profoundly intelligent and holds specific transformational information found in nature that can help us realize our true nature and help us shift out of self-limiting, self-destructive patterns and behaviors. Since flower essences are energetic in nature their benefits are not due to a bio-chemical interaction with the body but instead they work on the various energy pathways and fields such as the acupuncture meridians to create body, mind, and spirit health and well-being.
