About Cuckoo Flower Essence
Our Restore essence is made in Iceland from the Cuckoo flower, also known as Lady's Smock. This beautiful pale pink flower is painted with long dark veins and is found growing in moist pastures and bogs throughout Iceland. As a flower essence, it restores wholeness and connection by attuning us to pulse of nature and by resolving past hurts.
This flower essence breathes new life into old stifling wounds that interfere with our ability to be fully present and engaged in life. Cuckoo’s pronounced veins that run to the heart of the flower symbolize its ability to find pathways into wounded areas within the emotional heart to bring comfort and healing. Restore works to resolve past hurts and bring us more into present time by showing wounded and threatened aspects of ourselves safety, comfort, peace and resolution. This flower essence has a wide range of applications. We can think of using this flower essence anytime we feel stuck in the past, shut down or frozen, unable to resolve past hurt, and any type of disengagement from life. Because this flower is so brilliant at spreading calmness and connection throughout our being, Restore can be used whenever someone feels beside themselves, whether it is because of shock or trauma, illness or something unexplained. Restore can be used for any kind of trauma. (also check out our Trauma Repair formula).

What is a Flower Essence?
A flower essence is a bio-energetic imprint of a flower that has been transferred and stabilized in water. It is the Qi or life force of the flower that has been captured by water. Flower essences work directly on our energetic system such as the acupuncture meridians and are used primarily to address issues involving our emotions, mind and soul. They work energetically and often indirectly to create physical health and balance. Flower essences are a primary treatment for what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls Shen or Spirit. TCM primarily views Shen or Spirit as our psychological health and well-being.
Flowers are much more than a thing of beauty. Each flower is profoundly intelligent and holds specific transformational information found in nature that can be used for healing. They help us to know and understand ourselves better, allowing us to shift out of self-limiting, self-destructive patterns and behaviors. Likewise, flower essences activate the body's innate healing intelligence which can be especially important if the body has gotten stuck in a chronic pattern of imbalance. It is important to remember, that since flower essences are energetic in nature, their benefits are not due to a direct 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.
