Periwinkle (Vinca major)

The image associated with this flower essence is that of the sword in the heart. The original wounding which everyone goes through, usually in adolescence, which is essential for development but is painful beyond words, is the main area that it addresses. This wounding is replayed in different circumstances throughout life, presenting the opportunity for healing.


This remedy is especially helpful at such times. It is also indicated for the wounding of the female by the male, whether it be inner or outer female or male, and for shattering of ideals which results in cynicism. It is these blows to the heart which result in so many keeping their heart chakras closed. Use of this essence allows the healing of the heart, easing the constriction and opening the heart chakra. It gives the strength necessary to integrate the pain, restore ideals and the courage to explore and expand the self, welcoming challenge and reaching beyond the threshold to establish new forms and patterns for living.
