Red Alder Tree (Alnus rubra) - Restores healing "nutrients" to the "disturbed soils" of the intestines, reproductive organs and lower back that are accessed through the 1st and 2nd chakras. This could be caused by trauma or abuse.
As the essence says of itself:
I AM renewed growth from damaged "soils."
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Red alder tree is native to the Coastal Pacific Northwest and grows in moist woods, stream banks, tracks of landslides and recently cleared land. Catkins, hanging cylindrical clusters of either male or female flowers, appear in early spring before the leaves. Alders have a symbiotic relationship with a bacteria that forms nodules on its roots. The bacteria extracts nitrogen from the air and changes it into a form that can be absorbed by plants. Some of the transformed nitrogen leaks out of the nodules "fixing" usable nitrogen into the soil of disturbed sites. By this process, alders are nourished and create a healthy soil in which other plants can thrive. Red alder wood is great for smoking salmon and other fish and it makes handsome bowls, rattles, and other wood handcrafts. Red Alder bark is used to make orange and red dyes, and the inner bark has been eaten as a spring food, and used medicinally for respiratory issues due to its antimicrobial properties.
Use Red Alder Tree Essence when you have experienced physical, emotional or sexual trauma and are ready to integrate healing into your body/mind. You may have physical symptoms like low back pain, problems with your large intestine, kidneys, bladder or reproductive organs. You may have life attitudes of lack and scarcity, expecting that you will never have enough of whatever you want – money, prestige, power, love, confidence, food, a home. You may have difficulty supporting yourself emotionally or financially.
Traumatic experiences can affect us in a way that is similar to a piece of land being clear-cut or bulldozed. The soil, the foundation for what could grow there, is disturbed and deprived of its replenishing nutrients. This essence works in the 1st charka - located at the base of the spine - and 2nd chakra – located 3 fingers width below the belly button – to bring in healing for the energy circuits that nourish and harmonize the organs and tissues in the lower section of the torso. This includes the large and small intestines, reproductive organs, lower back and hips. In this way, it provides healing "nutrients" to the cells, the "soil," of this area.
While the essence was being made amber, red jasper, white with red stillbite and drusy quartz gemstones 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. Red Jasper instills physical vitality, emotional balance and zest for life. Stilbite has a calming influence and brings inner peace. 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.
