Buttercup's cheerful, symmetrical shape and sun-evoking color have long been associated with mood-uplifting properties. Ava has gone one step further to zero in on the specific types of unhappiness that this essence is particularly well-suited for.
Discontent, unhappiness, malaise, hopelessness, negativity, and self-defeating or saddening thought patterns or beliefs.
Buttercup flower essence helps the adult who is too serious, or is overburdened by old, false core beliefs, negativity-breeding thought patterns, and other tricks of the mind that can lead to unhappiness; the person who is discontented and often doesn't know why. The buttercup essence helps us see that the glass is not half empty but half full, and it brings to the surface old acquired beliefs that keep us stuck in an unhappy state of mind or performing unfulfilling life tasks and rituals. Buttercup can help us to see that these are indeed only beliefs, which can be reexamined and maybe discarded. It is an essence that helps us change to see the world from a different vantage point.
This essence is still under research, but Ava suggests it for toxic liver heat, stagnant liver, and liver and kidney yin deficiency symptoms, as when the body is hot and more moisture retention is needed.
