Elm for Overwhelm

Jul 12, 2016

Elm is the flower essence for feeling overwhelmed, or we can say, “over-elm-ed.” With all the pressures and stresses of our over-scheduled lives, 24-7 communications and instant access to crises anywhere in the world, who doesn’t feel overwhelmed?

The radiant St. John’s Wort is ablaze with its yellow blossoms. Here at Terra Flora we are preparing solar infusions of these blossoms for our FloraFusion St. John’s Shield Oil, and also the base for our FloraFusion Benediction Oil. We are always thrilled to see how these marvelous golden blossoms turn bright red as they steep in olive oil.

Michael T Schatz, Calera, AL wrote the following review on the FES store website: “My wife uses Self-Heal (both liquid and cream) and thought it might help my mother with what she thought were insect bites.

Here at Terra Flora last year, a large group of Mullein plants, with their rosette of large, furry leaves, spread out around a boulder in a gravelly area which we had dug up the previous year, in order to bury a propane tank.

We are rehabilitating a section of land here at Terra Flora that was damaged during the gold rush era – the land is badly eroded. Amazingly - although we did not provide any plant or seed yet to that area - the native lupines have emerged out of this sub-soil (see picture). The lupines are one of the members of the nitrogen-fixing legume (Fabaceae) family of plants that bring such benefit to land in need of regeneration or fertility. The lupines – also known as the bluebonnets – are associated with a Native American legend. The story tells of a tribe suffering from the extreme effects of drought and famine...

Blackberry brambles are spreading and starting to bloom here at Terra Flora. As we were taking a spring evening walk by one of our ponds, I spied these blackberry canes reaching out from along the pond dam, beginning to spread their tentacles.

Holding this elemental image deeply within our souls, we will come to understand the essential healing quality of Buttercup: the ability to feel one’s self-worth through active presence in the world, despite the inherent selfless disposition of the soul. The innate humility and selflessness of the soul is actually a source of greatest purity and spirituality. But the challenge is for the soul to feel and act upon that light, rather than sequestering it only within the deepest recesses of the soul. The essential gesture of the Buttercup archetype is summarized by Mother Theresa...
