In herbal traditions, Rhodiola rosea is a potent adaptogen used to create strong resistance against various types of stress. It grows wild in extreme climates such as Iceland. This robust plant grows right out of the lava rock and displays pronounced stability when faced with relentless cold and powerful arctic winds. As an herb, it is immensely strengthening to the entire body and is often used to address psychological stress, restlessness, and a feeling of heaviness and sadness. When used as a flower essence, we see a similar therapeutic action of increased vitality, rootedness and emotional strength. Our Rhodiola flower essence is made in a gorgeous Icelandic lava field bordering the sea. It offers a palpable sense of renewed strength and grants a sense of stability and rootedness. It works via the acupuncture meridian system to strengthen our Vital Qi (Life Force) and provides a type of sustenance for a weary body, mind and soul. It is a very grounding and centering flower essence that can be used to boost vitality and connect us to the stabilizing energies of the earth.
