Balsamorhiza sagittata, known as Balsam Root or Arrowleaf Balsam Root is a sibling of the sunflower. This plant has been long used traditionally for various purposes by Indigenous peoples. Most of the plant is edible and high in fibre and energy content. Balsam Root carries a kind of Grandfather wisdom in it's essence, revered for its early spring blooms and grounded, nourishing potentials. Balsam Root may take five to ten years to establish, but when it does, it grows well and prolifically and contributes strongly to it's ecosystems. This sense of slow growth embodies the virtues of patience and strength in will.  

Balsam Root flower is exalted by the Sun, resonating a warm masculine presence. Their long, hardy taproots remind us of the nurturance of growing strong roots in order to mature into our true vibrancy. This essence supports the integration of the healthy masculine energetics of embodied leadership, stability, right action, confidence and groundedness. It supports us in stepping into leadership positions or the natural beauty of eldership. As an essence, Balsam Root aids in building confidence and a strong sense of self and reminds us to grow into and embody our full potential, to stand rooted, and not be afraid to shine

Flower Essences (FE) are a form of botanical, homeopathic medicine. A liquid extract that essentially contains the energetic blueprint or signature of the flowering part of a plant. Flower essences carry the distilled wisdom + gifts that each flower has to share with the world through capturing the energetic essence, sacred geometry and resonance harmony of the flower into a water matrix.

Flower Essences are medicine of the Heart + Spirit.

It is the flower essence's subtlety and simplicity that make these medicines so potent. Working with FE requires an opening in our thinking beyond the materialistic assumptions of more and stronger are better. They invite us into presence with gentleness, sensitivity and receptivity to life and it's flourishing potential. FE function beyond the limits of the symptomatic approach of the modern medical system, they are not merely remedies to fix emotional symptoms, rather they serve as catalysts for awareness, transformation and connection.
