This second, more recent set of tree essences comes from our continued time spent in the woodlands, developing deeper relationships with the trees, learning from and working with them as food, medicine and craft. What has had the greatest affect upon us are the special qualities and unique essence of each species. The Tree flower essences carry these special attributes. Through using, sharing, listening and observing, we have come to see how each of these trees can touch the heart and spirit of a person, animal, plant or environment.
We will be developing the descriptions of all the Woodland Essence Flower Essences sharing our experiences, stories and research through our Adirondack Journal and eventually in a book of the Woodlands. We hope you keep in touch to learn more from and about the beauty and nature of the Northeast Woodlands along with sharing your own stories!
*All sets are made up of 1/2 ounce stock bottles*
