How Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence Helps You:
Use Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence when you feel stuck, stagnant or constipated in your life such as holding onto old hurts, clinging to no longer useful attitudes and beliefs or unable to move forward to make a significant life change. This may express physically as large intestine/colon problems, deep skin issues - such as eczema, shingles, or cancer - or being overweight.
Skunk Cabbage flower essence encourages you to delight in being in a physical body on Earth. It impulses you to dig deep into the emotional and psychological muck creating stagnant constipated energy that blocks your ability to live life to the fullest. When you feel stuck or stagnant in your life and personal growth process, Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence will give you the “kick in the pants” to get moving again. It works through the sacral chakra and large intestine to release constipated physical, emotional or psychological energy and to aid healing of deep skin issues. If what is no longer nourishing or useful cannot be excreted through the large intestine, it may turn toxic or try to be excreted through the skin.
Note: Skunk Cabbage is a strong and deep acting flower essence. We recommend that you use one or more additional essences to support and balance the action of Skunk Cabbage flower essence. Suggestions are: Red Alder Tree, Oceanspray, Comfrey, Mock Orange, Moon Shadow Rose, and Stinging Nettle.
How Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence Was Made:
Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence was made by the no-pick method of working directly with the plant spirit. While the essence was being made amber, aquamarine, drusy quartz, green tourmaline, Inca jade, orange calcite, red calcite and sunstone crystals 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. Aquamarine gently and deeply clears your emotional body and releases old emotional baggage. Drusy quartzcrystals help to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. Green tourmaline assists the transfer of energy from the mineral to the plant vibrational frequencies, helps you feel connected to all life on Earth. It can stimulate proper cellular functioning and healing. Inca jade encourages you to delight in life, this time of being Spirit in the world of matter. Orange calcite aligns you with the will to take action toward your goals. It supports healing intestinal disorders. Red calcite is grounding and helps you feel comfortable in your body with more vitality. It governs the movement of energy through physical form. Sunstones warm and stimulate the emotional body, and transform judgment into joy by raising your vibrational frequency. They engender personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness.
While Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence was being made imprints of rattle and spirit song coming through Diana’s voice were infused into the essence.
I am the transformation of stagnant life force into bright sunshine.
Skunk cabbage, also called swamp lantern, is native to swampy areas, wet meadows and wet forests of the North American Pacific Coast. It is in the Araceae family, and like its central North American cousin, Symplocarpus foetidus, it has a fleshy rizome, consisting mainly of stem tissue. The skunk smell attracts insects that pollinate the tiny flowers packed on a central spike that is hooded by a large yellow bract. Unlike its central North American cousin that was used, and continues to be used, extensively for respiratory problems, the Pacific Northwest skunk cabbage was rarely used for food or medicine because it contains needle-like crystals of calcium oxalate that can cause intense irritation and burning in the digestive tract. Instead Pacific Northwest skunk cabbage leaves were used to line berry picking baskets, drying racks and cooking pits. However, after steaming or roasting, leaves and root were sometimes eaten as a famine food.
