The essence

Willowrose flower essence provides adequate energy in times of transformation, eg when the spiritual development is in conflict with the one of the physical body. It can be used in all kinds of transitions, eg when the child is trying to become independant of its parents and abundantly uses the word „no“, as well as in puberty, menopause and retirement. The essence reminds you that something old is only going to make way for something better.


This flower is always helpful when someone is breaking new ground, and perhaps gets confused, frightened and traumatized by this. It gives strength and has a grounding effect. Characteristic of a need of Willowrose is the feeling of loneliness and isolation: ‚No one understands me and neither do I‘ When self-esteem is low, think of Willowrose.

This essence will help to reduce anxiety and make room for love - a typical situation for this could be caused by an aggressive yang energy that forces the reorientation by rape. The result is always fear, hurt and destruction of the (mostly) female self-consciousness, which makes it impossible to accept love in the future. Willowrose cures the violation of women.
