I AM a healthy, robust immune response heartfully relaxing into life.
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Boneset is native to meadows and marshlands of eastern North America. It is a perennial herb, with an erect stout, cylindrical hairy stem, 2 to 4 feet tall. The lance-shaped leaves are large, opposite, united at the base so as to seem perforated by the stem, 4 to 8 inches long (the lower ones being the largest) with finely toothed edges. Terminal gray-white flower clusters sit on finely branched stems. Boneset’s odor is slightly aromatic, the taste astringent and strongly bitter. It flowers from July to September. Aerial parts of this herb are used to treat viral infections such as colds, flu and fever. The name comes from its ability to treat fevers that accompany broken bones. It is also used for arthritic and rheumatic pain, bacterial infections and some skin conditions.
Although flower essences do not diagnose or treat the actual physical symptom, Boneset Flower Essence may be helpful when you have chronic immune system depletion or autoimmune issues. You may be experiencing symptoms such as chronic fatigue, adrenal depletion, chronic respiratory problems, chronic shingles, graves disease, lupus or multiple sclerosis.
Boneset Flower Essence works through the energy circuits that support a strong and healthy immune system. Particularly it goes to the places of emotional heart wounds that weaken the immune system and keep you contracted and frozen in your body. By working in these areas, it helps you deeply relax into life. Boneset Flower Essence works best in combination with other essences, some of which are listed below.
While the essence was being made gemstones of amber, green tourmaline, red japser, blue quartz, rose quartz and drusy quartz were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. Amber aligns the subtle bodies with the physical bodies, transmutes negative energy into positive energy, and emits a sunny and soothing energy that calms and enlivens the disposition. Green tourmaline holds the essence of the plant kingdom and assists with transferring the vibrational frequency of minerals to the vibrational frequency of plants. It helps to attune energy between the 3rd eye and the heart chakra. Red Jasper instills physical vitality, emotional balance and zest for life. Blue Phantom Quartz - (quartz with blue tourmaline inclusions) releases introversion and fear and supports reaching out to others. It activates the throat chakra and encourages you to speak your feelings. Rose quartz works on all of the chakras to gently remove negativity, to reinstate the gentle forces of self-love and to heal emotional wounds. 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.
