About Strength: Rhodiola Flower Essence
In herbal traditions, Rhodiola rosea is a potent adaptogen used to create strong resistance against various types of stress. It grows wild in extreme climates such as Iceland. This robust plant grows right out of the lava rock and displays pronounced stability when faced with relentless cold and powerful arctic winds. As an herb, it is immensely strengthening to the entire body and is often used to address psychological stress, restlessness, and a feeling of heaviness and sadness. When used as a flower essence, we see a similar therapeutic action of increased vitality, rootedness and emotional strength. Our Rhodiola flower essence is made in a gorgeous Icelandic lava field bordering the sea. It offers a palpable sense of renewed strength and grants a sense of stability and rootedness. It works via the acupuncture meridian system to strengthen our Vital Qi (Life Force) and provides a type of sustenance for a weary body, mind and soul. It is a very grounding and centering flower essence that can be used to boost vitality and connect us to the stabilizing energies of the earth.
Ingredients: Spring water, 20% organic grape alcohol and infusion of Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea).

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.
