Kinnikinnik (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) - Encourages you to gently snuggle into open-hearted love for yourself.
As the essence says of itself:
I am ease with loving myself.
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Uva ursi, also know as bearberry, grows wild in dry sunny spots through out Europe and the northern hemisphere. The name kinnikinnik (also spelled kinnikinnick) comes from the Algonquian Native American language and means “smoking mixture”. The evergreen leaves were smoked by a number of Pacific coastal native groups including Salish, Haida and Nuxalk who made special pipes from gooseberry stems. It was also used by the Haida as a diuretic in kidney disease and to treat infections in the urinary tract. Among present day herbalists, it is best known for treating urinary bacterial infections.
Lack of self-love leads to many unhealthy conditions, including addictions, heart disease, and auto-immune disorders.
This essence gently opens the back of the heart chakra and supports the process of returning to self-love. Kinnikinnik essence in combination with Oregon Grape, Stinging Nettle and Mock Orange flower essences will assist your efforts to shift from addictive behaviors to a healthy life style. Use Kinnikinnik flower essence with Comfrey, Oceanspray and Pennyroyal essences to aid the resolution of auto-immune issues. See Related Products below that work well for heart issues.

While the essence was being made, the storage bottles (mother bottles), rose quartz, amber, amethyst and drusy quartz gemstones were placed among the plants. Rose quartz is known as the “stone of gentle love”, and is helpful for healing emotional wounds and reinstating self-love. Amber aligns the subtle bodies with the physical bodies, transmutes negative energy into positive energy, emits a sunny and soothing energy that calms and enlivens the disposition, and helps you to understand the consequences of your choices. Amethyst clears the aura, transmutes dysfunctional energy located in the body, brings peace and contentment, and enhances cooperation between the subtle bodies, spiritual energies and daily life. 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.
