About Wild Mountain Avens Flower Essence
>‘Free to Be Me’ features the wildflower Mountain Evans, an Icelandic favorite and the official national flower. This small plant boasts a beautiful large white and yellow flower that decorates hills and heathlands of the Icelandic countryside. It’s one of the first flowers to bloom each year signaling the arrival of summer. This encouraging and uplifting flower essence boosts self-acceptance and inner joy by releasing impediments to self-love such as fear of rejection, self-doubt, and self-criticism.

This essence reconnects us back to our true Self and remedies the tendency to be too ego-driven, often seen as the disconnection from our truth, joy and heart. ‘Free to Be Me’ can also be used to ease communication among people due to its ability to empower and release unhealthy self-censorship. It has a wide range of healing applications, including those awkward teenage years, midlife crisis, or to any other time we feel unsure of ourselves.This hope-filled and inspiring flower essence can be used to renew and strengthen a person or animal friend.
❝I felt immediately drawn to the Mountain Avans flower essence while attending David Crow's Listening to the Heart Meditation retreat last fall. I didn't know what the essence was for but knew I had to have it.
After I purchased the essence, I went out into the forest to meditate on my own as we were instructed to do a little each day.
I took a few drops of my new flower essence under my tongue & began to mediate. A few minutes later I heard the ❛voice of the forest❜ telling me that they liked me just as I am. I understood that I am loved & accepted just as I am & that I can let go of trying to be more or better.
I found out later that this is exactly what Mountain Avens works with...deeply accepting ourselves for who we truly are.❞

How to Use Wild Mountain Avens 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. 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.
Ingredients: Spring water, 20% organic grape alcohol and infusion of Mountain Avens flower
Bottle Size: 1/2 oz
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 sip on throughout the day. In a typical dose of flower essence (1-2 drops) the alcohol content is extremely low.
What is a Flower Essence?
A flower essence is a bioenergetic 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 and work indirectly to create physical health and balance. Flower essences are a primary treatment for what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls Shen or Spirit. Traditional Chinese Medicine 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 help us to know and understand ourselves better, allowing us to shift out of self-limiting, self-destructive patterns and behaviors. 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. Since flower essences are energetic in nature, generally speaking 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.
*Please note: A flower essence is energetic and odorless and therefore distinct from essential oils.

Great for overcoming shyness
by Kelly S.
I'm repurchasing this today, since this is one of the most helpful essences I've found for overcoming social anxiety and shyness. The first time I used this essence, I went to a farmer's market and ended up having conversations with many of the vendors who I normally just interact with on a strictly transactional level. I left feeling like a totally new person! This is my go-to when I'm going to be in situations where I might feel uncomfortable, like around strangers. It has really made a difference!
