This is our Original Tree essence set that we began offering over 20 years ago. These essences are of trees of the Northeast United States, made in New England and the Adirondacks. Through a shared dream, my husband Don and I felt encouraged to prepare the essences of the trees we had been living with, hiking through, climbing and sleeping under with our children for many years.
These trees hold many qualities, yet the overall gifts they share are stability and balance. I like to say they are the conduits between the earth and sky, helping us feel grounded even as we feel inspired to grow upwards and branch outward through our dreams and creativity. They can be used to stabilize, create a sense of safety, and bring one a sense of centeredness and of being grounded in the moment as well as one’s life.
"Our desire is to connect you with the healing wonders
of nature so that you may restore wellness."
Love and Blessings from the Forest,
Kate & Don
