As the essence says of itself:
I AM balanced and clear neural and biochemical communication between the body and brain.
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Twinberry, also know as Black Twinberry and Bearberry Honeysuckle, is commonly found from the Alaskan panhandle to southern California and into Chihuahua, Mexico. It ranges eastward to Montana, New Mexico, Michigan and Quebec. Twinberry is found in moist woodlands, edges of ponds, lakes and streamside, swamps and thickets from sea level to high elevations in the mountains. Pairs of yellow trumpet shaped flowers bloom in spring and the purplish to black berries appear in mid summer. Birds and bears love the berries, but they are generally considered inedible for humans. Some indigenous people used the berries to make black dye. Bark and twigs were used in making medicines to treat aches, pains, digestive issues, and sore eyes.
Use Twinberry Flower Essence when you experience poor communication between your body and brain. This can happen as a result of experiences such as illness, trauma, or rapid spiritual/evolutionary processes. Imbalances in the energetics of the brain stem can relate to symptoms like uncoordinated motor skills; being in a frequent state of fight/flight/freeze; significant hormonal imbalances possibly including hot flashes and temperature swings; emotional/mood swings; headaches at the crown, sides or back of the head; or problems with autonomic functions such as blood pressure and digestion.
Twinberry Flower Essence works through the energy circuits that affect the brainstem and provides support for the variety of autonomic and body regulatory functions that originate in the brainstem. Sometimes called the hindbrain or reptilian brain, the brainstem is the lower extension of the brain where it connects to the spinal cord. Most of the cranial nerves come from the brainstem. It is also the pathway for all nerves passing up and down from the peripheral nerves and spinal cord to other parts of the brain, including the prefrontal cortex, the place of higher consciousness and higher reasoning. Neurological and biochemical functions include those necessary for survival such as breathing, digestion, heart rate, blood pressure and the flight/flight/freeze response. Together, biochemicals of the brainstem, the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland regulate body temperature, and staying awake and alert. Twinberry Flower Essence is usually taken in conjunction with other essences. See the related essences below.
This essence was made by the “no-pick” method. While the essence was being made, gemstones of amethyst, shattukite and drusy quartz were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. Amethyst is a stone of spirituality and contentment. It enhances the cooperation between your mental, physical and emotional bodies. Shattukite stone aids communication of inputs through the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that is active during spiritual experience, and other parts of the brain. Drusy quartz crystals help to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. The actions of the gemstones inform the way this flower essence seats into the physical body.
