How Salal Flower Essence Helps You:
Use Salal Flower Essence when you think that spiritual practices are more important than mundane activities. Or when you get caught up in doing daily and "spiritual" activities and forget to feel the "spirit", the beauty, the heartfulness and the joy underlying the actions. Feeling rushed and looking forward to what is next instead of paying attention to what you are currently doing. Lack of internal peace and calm.
Salal Flower Essence helps you to remember that you are spirit having a human experience. It teaches you to honor yourself as well as everything around you. Mitakuye Oyasin, we are all related, is the Lakota Sioux understanding of this. Most other indigenous people know this, too. That what you do is much less important than how you do it. Walk in Beauty - as the Navajo (Dine) people say - within yourself, for yourself, so you will be able to radiate peaceful equanimity to others. No matter what your work is – perhaps, fireman, nurse, yoga teacher, environmental activist, or mother - the way you feel yourself, the way you connect with your inner spirit is vital to the quality of what you contribute to others. It is also vital to your light-hearted sense of wellbeing. Salal Flower Essence supports a deepening experience of yourself, pleasure in the simple things of life and presence in the moment with whatever you are doing; for example, tending to a patient, cooking and eating a meal, taking the kids to school, teaching a fire safety class, creating a social network action for an environmental issue, watering your garden, or taking a nap in the sunshine. Go de-Light-fully through your day.
How Salal Flower Essence Was Made:
Salal Flower Essence was made by the no pick method of working directly with the plant spirit. During this process crystals of amber, blue calcite, cavansite, drusy quartz, icosahedron cut quartz, moldavite, pink cobalto calcite, turquoise and varascite were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. The sun acts as a transformer to step down spiritual energies from higher dimensions. While the essence was being made, Amber acted as a lens to receive and focus sunlight for this purpose. Amber also 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. Blue calcite calms nerves and promotes rest and relaxation while surrounding you with blue spiritual light. It releases stress and helps you feel more empowered in your life. Cavansite supports receiving information from higher dimensions, connects you with inner truth, and enhances your ability to communicate that. It soothes your frayed nerves and helps you to relax. Drusy Quartz helps to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. Icosahedron cut quartz has 20 (5X4) equilateral sides. It is a bridge between the 5th Dimension - the entry into the unified Spiritual realms - and the 4 cardinal directions (N, S, E, W) on Earth. Moldavite was formed as part of meteorites that fell to Earth more than 15 million years ago. It serves the inhabitants of Earth by facilitating strong, clear, and direct interdimensional interconnectedness between your consciousness and the higher planes of Light. Pink cobalto calcite is a stone of love patience and gentleness. It embodies deep compassion, emotional healing and joy, while balancing your feeling-oriented and action-oriented aspects. Turquoise teaches that all of life’s experiences are equally valuable and can lead to compassion, forgiveness and wisdom. It encourages communication of wholeness and truth. Variscite instills inner peace, love, compassion and simplicity. It also provides a resonant link between our energy fields and Earth’s energy fields. The actions of the crystals inform the way this essence seats into the body/mind.
While the Salal Flower Essence was being made, imprints of rattle, red tail hawk feather and spirit song coming through Diana’s voice were infused into the essence.

Herbal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Salal is a very common understory shrub in the North American Pacific Northwest coniferous forests. It grows from sea level to middle elevations, sometimes forming impenetrable thickets. Salal was an important food source for many First Peoples of the area. The dark juicy berries were eaten both fresh and dried into cakes. Salal berries were used to sweeten other foods and to thicken salmon eggs. Sometimes they were traded or sold, usually in combination with other native berries. These days, salal berries make a wonderful jam.
