This is an environmental essence made in the spring in a hidden meadow that few people know about and frequent. Ava chose a hot and very sunny day in the spring when several wildflowers bloomed at once, and this meadow seemed at a peak in its energy and color. The following flowers bloomed then and were all infused together in one vessel: white yarrow, silvery lupine, wild rose, wild strawberry, blue cornflower, coral bells, and purple vetch.
To reconnect with spring nature's energies: optimism, a fresh outlook, a readiness to step into the new; also excellent for times of growth spurts (physical, emotional, or spiritual).
The feeling of sitting in the grass surrounded by flowering lupines, yarrow, and wild strawberries is a remedy for today's times when fewer and fewer of us are lucky enough to have access to forests and forest clearings away from car noises and strangers. In such a setting, our nervous system relaxes deeply and the many things that were on our mind, the many things we typically complain about or get upset about, seem to fade away. The energy of nature is such that it creates a shift in perspective; it steers us toward the positive, and it helps us slow down to achieve a deeper rest and reflection. Our intention with this essence was exactly that, to bring a flowering spring meadow to you in a drop form. It may sound silly, but try it.

After a long, hard year with many physical and emotional challenges, this essence appealed to me for its renewing properties. I needed to find a sense of hope and optimism. And it has. I feel more grounded and hopeful when I take this regularly, and I still really need that. Combined with spring sunshine and more time outdoors, this gives me a wonderful lift.
