Bleeding Heart Flower Essence


30 ml (1 fl.oz)

A flower essence of fresh bleeding heart (Lamprocapnos spectabilis) flowers ritually harvested from our poison garden and mindfully prayed over. A flower essence, made from a significantly diluted solar infusion of water and fresh flowers, is the only safe way to ingest this poisonous plant.

Bleeding heart is used in flower essence therapy to help acknowledge, accept, and overcome grief. It helps to reopen a closed, hurt heart and helps bring sweetness back into your life. Bleeding heart can help those who tend to let all the sorrows of others and even the whole world weigh upon them so they can establish boundaries and value their empathy without letting sorrow overwhelm their heart and mind. In folk magic, bleeding heart is associated with the planet Venus and the water element. It is traditionally called upon for love magic, love divination, and to aid in healing a broken heart.

Flower essences embody a living tradition of magical herbalism. In use since the early 1900s, flower essences are not tinctures but diluted cold water infusions of the fresh flowers which are harvested in a mindful ceremony and prayed over. Developed by Doctor Edward Bach in the early 1900s, they are meant to be ingested in homeopathic amounts to help with emotional pain such as fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, burnout, sadness, and trauma. Flower essences made from poisonous plants are safe to ingest and can be used for spiritual cleansing, magical rituals, anointing, and plant spirit communion.

We sell flower essences as 30 ml stock bottles. A stock bottle is simply 50% best brandy and 50% aquifer water. Three drops of a flower’s mother essence are put into this stock bottle and we ship it to you ready for use. The mother essence is the pure cold water infusion of the fresh flowers which are harvested ritually, prayed over, and infused in the morning sun for a couple hours before straining and using to make stock bottles. The finished flower essence you receive is a diluted version of this mother essence preserved with the alcohol. There are only three drops of a mother essence in each bottle of our flower essences.
