The essence

Dandelion flower essence works in general non-specific with mental and emotional stress, which is converted into physical tension. Where stress leads to tension, be it in the neck, shoulders, back or abdomen, Dandelion can be taken preventatively and constitutionally, if it is a person‘s typical pattern to transform strain into physical tension, which is not unusual for most of us. Simultaneous external use by massaging the essence into painful areas supports the internal use, acts even faster, however less long lasting.


The second effect of this flower is the grounding. Good grip, realism, stability combined with ease and flexibility in the spiritual realm (= solid roots of the plant and at the same time airiness of the seeds). Dandelion helps kinesiology practitioners and consultants to work with blocked (test) muscles. Massaging the essence in the blocked muscle dissolves the blockage quickly and opens for the kinesiologic treatment or Shiatzu massage or similar techniques.
