Purple Loosestrife supports the compassionate, visionary heart that allows us to truly love our enemies.

The essence gives us courage to face enormous shifts at the personal, societal, and ecological levels. Within love’s embrace, we find the compassion to address violence, evil, and adversity in our personal lives and the larger world.
