The essence

Spruce is like a grandfather, who you can tell the secrets yours parents would carpet you for. As the wise, old and loving grandfather protects and guarantees the inviolability of the grandchild, thus creating a haven of security, Spruce supports us with the gentle side of male power.


Spruce brings the male parts of the personality in harmony, creating along the way a slightly distanced and sometimes a bit ironic attitude towards oneself - even in situations where you used to be very stressed out and thought you had to overcome them by means of force, volume, and ruthlessness.

It is both the essence of choice for the little fat boy who is constantly teased on the playground, as for the adult macho, who mistakes brutality for masculinity, as well as for women, who are troubled by or hate their inner male.

If formative experiences with men have been very negative, this can lead to the rejection of men generally as of one‘s own inner male. If you do not want to give men any further break, it also means giving your own Yang energy none - just as little as yourself as a whole. Spruce flower essence gives you forgiveness and reconciliation, providing that you are internally ready for it of course (if in doubt combine with Willow).
