Softness in Hardship Essence Blend

Pacific Northwest Essences

Softness in Hardship Essence Blend


Many people think that when we go through challenging life events we need courage to endure, but for some hardy individuals who have been through many tough situations, or for people whose natural inclination or ambition leads them to take on major challenges, or for the breadwinner-warriors among us, the hardest thing is to remain patient and loving when we work through big tasks or go through stressful times. For parents, partners, sons, and daughters who strive to be soft—not explosive, cranky, or abrasive—Ava chose a blend that helps decongest the liver (liver is the organ of anger in Traditional Chinese Medicine), and helps people to reconnect with the kindness, sweetness, affection, and tenderness in their hearts.


Adrenal burnout, under a lot of stress, irritable, impatient with others, cranky, a driven or hardworking person who brings themselves to utter exhaustion and has anger outbursts.

Emotional and spiritual effects

The teasel, bull thistle, and Canada thistle are three incredible essences that act on the liver. They are a particularly great match for the strong and driven personality that may have trouble slowing down and being playful, idle, or affectionate, as well as for people who react to stress by being moody and temperamental toward their loved ones. 

Paper birch essence was included to remind us who we are deep inside, and mangano calcite, rose quartz, and phlox soften the heart chakra, making us feel safe and loved. White yarrow essence seals and repairs the aura so that the individual going through a challenging time is able to bounce off burdensome energies from the environment.

Physical plane

This is a blend for the liver meridian that encourages ongoing detox and optimal functioning of the liver. 


Ava's research into this group of essences was inspired by the work of Steve Johnson and David Dalton. 


Shake the bottle before each use. Take 3 drops at a time onto the tongue or mixed with water 3–4 times a day, between meals and not with herbs or coffee.

If using a mist, shake the bottle and spray above your head or around a space of your choice two times a day, or more often if desired.
