The essence

Snowdrop provides us with the strength and energy to free ourselves from all the hardship, pain and darkness after a long, hard winter (both figuratively and literally).


Snowdrop shows us the light at the end of the tunnel, helps to leave the old, burdening emotions behind us and brings us back into a state of childlike innocence full of confidence and cheerfulness. This gives us the opportunity for a fresh start. This essence allows you to get up again after you fell, be happy again, even when you thought you had forgotton how to laugh all over.
