Sunflower is the number one essence to increase self-confidence in adults and children. It is also very helpful for anyone who struggles with fears of success or failure. It balances the feminine and masculine elements in all of us, add strength and stability during difficult or stressful times. Like many large plants with a strong structure, it is strongly grounding in the feet (some can literally feel more strongly planted on the earth: an incredible feeling!). This is an effect of strengthening of the first chakra (the seat of stability, calm, feeling of safety).
Sunflower gives an infusion of sun for sun lovers and those whose mood is low during periods of insufficient sun or time spent indoors. It is recommended to take internally after a sunburn and to prevent or help with skin cancer.
Sunflower corresponds to the first and third chakras.
This sunflower essence was made on the last day of summer 2016, not by cutting the organically grown flowers and floating them on water but by rinsing the blooms and buds. This method was employed to give the late-planted flowers a chance to open up, enjoy the last days of sun and warmth, and to give the bees nurturance as they prepare for the colder seasons.
