One of the delights in our summer garden is Green Bells of Ireland. The name of this plant is something of a misnomer, the plants did not originate in Ireland, but it did become associated with the nation called the “Green Isle.” This Lamiaceae family plant has such an intriguing and unusual form, with striking green calyxes “Green Bells” holding tiny mauve -colored flowers. The stem of the flower is quite fierce, with bristle like thorns, while the scent of the flower is spice-like and awakening.

We recently received this touching report about Yerba Santa flower essence: “As soon as I read the description of Yerba Santa, I resonated with the description of the 'inviolable space' within my heart. Although I didn't appear to be 'wasting away', I was working with severe lung disturbance after mold exposure that was frightening and affected my ability to work and function; however, even before this my lungs were a vulnerable organ constitutionally. I've been aware of an internalized grief and sadness which has been extensively explored and there has much healing over the course of decades of spiritual and emotional healing work.

Exploring this has helped me see what I've carried as a result of my family lineage .....”
