For many people who are just becoming interested in flower or gem essences, the first essence or blend is one for protection. It may be that they have come to recognize, consciously or subconsciously, that energetic influences exist that can affect our well-being negatively. The unwanted influences can be unpleasant or outright hostile personalities we run into at work, verbally aggressive drivers, the energy of a bustling downtown, or the difficult-to-describe yet threatening or unpleasant atmosphere of a place we have no choice but to go to or go through, such as, for some of us, the airport.
There is also a special need, rarely talked about openly, for protection from people who may wish us harm, whose energy is strong yet we don't want it in our aura or our memory. The task of flower essences is to encourage those people to forget about us and turn their attention somewhere else.
As we have already heard from other essence makers, people who are seeking essences for protection generally want them to be as strong as possible. That has also been our experience, and for this reason Ava chose essences for this aura shield blend that don't just passively shield us like an umbrella, but are feisty enough to fight back negative energies so they will go away and not attempt to return.
For protection from evil, emotionality from others, drama, accidents, aggression from others, bad luck, and disease energy from others who are sick.
Yarrow is the quintessential essence for preventing others' energy from affecting us too strongly, and in our experience it is particularly helpful for getting through emotionally charged situations, such as necessary confrontations or negotiations, without losing one's temper or ground. It makes it easier to focus on the tasks or the meeting at hand, without taking on others' emotions in the process.
Weeping willow gives a sense of a protective umbrella above us, so that it becomes easier to focus our attention inward and go about our mission rather than focusing on what is outside.
Celestite facilitates a connection to the angelic realm so that we feel taken care of and watched over by the angels.

As an energetically sensitive, highly empathic person, I was curious about an essence that could help me with energetic boundaries during times when I feel tired and depleted, so I tried the Shield Essence. And I honestly couldn’t be any happier with how well it works! It makes it easy to stay grounded in myself and keep negative energies out, particularly from those who are closest to me. It also works amazingly well for my almost 4 year old who is a total empath. I just put a drop in his water bottle if we’re going to be around crowds of people or if someone he’s around is in a heavy place and I notice that he doesn’t take on the energy and then act out, which is what used to happen regularly. Overall AMAZINGLY EFFECTIVE blend!
I was going through a hard time with a negative person. I like to avoid conflict, and it was really taking a toll on me. I saw shield and decided to give it a try. Well I don’t know if it was just good timing, but things definitely got better for me. Much, much better. And I no longer have that negative person in my life. I came back and bought another bottle today. :)

I am going through one of the most challenging times of my life. I carry this with me and find some calmness by taking it. I don't why exactly but I know it it my friend right now.
