As the days are becoming longer, I am getting excited about this year. Ideas are flying around in my head and I want to get going with all of them now! Yet, it is still winter, a time for deep rest, revitalizing the immune system and gathering energy for the busy spring and summer ahead. When I’m too active, I start to get a sore throat and cold. It’s a signal, slow down. I’ll take time to read a book, listen to music or relax in front of the fireplace with a cup of licorice tea. I find I need this slower time to deeply feel myself, connect to my authenticity and tune into the sweetness of life here at Tree Frog Farm.
Licorice Flower Essence and Orange Wild Honeysuckle Flower Essence are wonderful allies this time of year, and are key essences in the Kidney and Bladder Organ Energy Meridian Blends. All of these are on special through mid February.
Licorice Flower Essence
Licorice herb is native to southern Europe, Indian and parts of Asia, and now is cultivated in many parts of the world. Licorice is commonly known as a candy; however, licorice root has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. Its antiviral, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties make it a valuable herb to treat sore throat, bronchitis, cough, lupus and osteoarthritis. It also helps with adrenal fatigue, stress, anxiety and sleep issues. Use in small amounts for a short period of time.
On the flower essence level, Licorice Flower Essence brings out your natural sweetness and supports a light of joyful presence. It works through the energy circuits that affect the body metabolic process to reduce inflammation.
I AM natural sweetness and joy with life.

Orange Wild Honeysuckle Flower Essence
Orange Honeysuckle is a trailing to high-climbing widely branching vine that grows wild in open woods to deep forest. It ranges from sea level to middle elevations and from the Pacific Coast of southern British Columbia to Northern California, west to Montana. Its stunning orange trumpet-shaped flowers open in whorls above a disk-leaf at the tip of the branch from May to July. Orange honeysuckle is easily cultivated in a garden setting to the delight of hummingbirds, bees and children who love the sweet nectar from the flowers. Indigenous peoples used the stem fibers to make mats, blankets and capes. Orange honeysuckle was used to treat colds & sore throats, reproductive issues and as a sedative.
On the flower essences level, Orange Wild Honeysuckle facilitates the process of balance through the energetic-electrical systems that in turn promote balance in the physical nervous system. How revved or calm we feel is determined by the balance of neuro-electrical and biochemical stimuli through out the whole nervous system. When you entrain your nervous system to a state of balance, you facilitate the process of feeling peacefully and calmly at home in your body.
I AM peacefully and calmly engaging life as my authentic self.

Water Element: Winter
Water is the primal mother of organic life. It is wet, fluid, takes the shape of its container, and conducts electricity. Humans are about 80% water. We need to stay hydrated so our blood, lymph, digestive, excretion and nervous systems can function properly. In Chinese Five Element Theory, water element rules the lymph and immune systems, bones, central nervous system including brain, and the adrenal glands. An imbalanced water system contributes to lack of flow in thoughts and feelings. It is associated with the subconscious mind and the emotion of fear. The season of the water element is winter and the colors are blue/black.
Kidney Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The kidney organ energy system (kidney system) is the yin to the bladder’s yang. It is the source and storehouse of physical life force, chi. Bones and the lymphatic system are ruled by the kidney system. Bone marrow produces white and red blood cells and lymphocyte cells that support the immune system. The kidneys purify blood.
The kidney system holds the memory of family lineage trauma. Fear and shock are the emotional responses most associated with the kidney system. Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue. The kidney meridian is most active from 5pm to 7pm.
Symptoms: Use Kidney Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience reoccurring kidney stones or diseases, shock and fear, panic attacks, adrenal depletion, chronic fatigue, or frequently feel wired-tired. A person with kidney system imbalance often lacks will, motivation, or resilience. Contributes to edema and autoimmune responses.
Action: The Kidney OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical kidney and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. This blend activates the immune system and calms the adrenal glands. It shifts fear to confidence, will and motivation, and shock to resilience. The Kidney OEM Essence Blend restores access to the source of your physical life force.

Bladder Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The bladder organ energy system (bladder system) is the yang to the kidney’s yin. Physically, the bladder is the reservoir for fluids waiting to be excreted. Energetically, it is the container for the power of the kidneys and reservoir for daily energy. It encourages you to pace yourself and to rest so you don’t deplete your energy supply, and it supports the immune system. The bladder system relates to the central nervous system including the brain, the emotion of fear and to personal trauma. The meridian is most active from 3pm to 5pm.
Symptoms: Use Bladder Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience headaches, back problems, or urinary problems including excessive urination and leaking. Symptoms of bladder system imbalance are a tendency to over exert, unable to complete things due to lack of energy, being inflexible, and fear as a response to life. A deep need to control your environment from not being able to protect yourself or someone else during the experience of trauma is another expression of Bladder System imbalance.
Actions: The Bladder OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical bladder and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. This blend supports the healthy functioning of the physical bladder and the immune system. It balances the central nervous system, and the amygdala (fear center) of the brain, encouraging a shift from fear-based existence to living with the sustained energy, confidence, adaptability, and flexibility needed to fully engage your daily life.
