This essence really was the one that almost wasn’t – I found her by accident on a previous trip, peeking out cheekily from underneath another shrub.  I told her I would be back to make an essence in a few months.  When I returned six months later – no plant!  I asked one of the gardeners what happened to it – I was walked to the back of the garden where some new plants were being put in – among them, three little Devil’s Trumpet shrubs with a bud each on two of them.  Although the flowers opened after our departure,  I was sure that the rising energy making the flower would also make a great essence.
