Fears can inhibit so much of our lives and can often be difficult to eradicate. They deny us much of our freedom and enjoyment of life. The intention behind this essence is to bring our fears out into the open where they can be seen for what they really are - “paper tigers” that looked ferocious when hidden in dark corners but in fact have no real power or substance. Deeply rooted fears can date back to childhood and so the Childhood essence can often help when given at the same time.
Stachys officinalis Betony is for unrecognizable fears, fears that can make us feel unloved, unwanted or unworthy. In extreme cases they can drive people to contemplate suicide.

Mahonia aquifolium Mahonia helps to free us from the fear of our own inner power. Such fear usually arises from seeing the immense damage that can be caused by fanatical people.

Mahonia brings the fragrance of the divine into our life, empowering whatever we need to be doing.
Chelidonium majus Greater Celandine is for those who fear their spiritual dimension - the core of their being.

Greater Celandine gradually helps to dissolve those barriers, bringing ease and realignment of the mind-body-spirit unity.
