At-Risk North American Flower Essences
We are very happy to share these special flower essences with you. For many years we have lived close to these native woodland plants, occasionally using them in our herbal practice and growing them in our woodland gardens.
At present these and several other North American plants are atrisk for becoming endangered. Places they once grew have either been destroyed, or the plants themselves have been over-harvested, due to high consumer demand. This demand continues to grow.
Planting and caretaking one or more of these native plants species in an environment which meets their needs is one way to make a difference in the restoration of these woodland treasures. 10% of sales goes to United Plant Savers (UpS) an organization dedicated to the conservation and cultivation of At-Risk Native Medicinal Plants.
