Spring has Sprung!

Bottlebrush for Spring

Bottlebrush for Spring

Bottlebrush for Spring and it means Spring has sprung! It is used for clearing and cleansing. Whilst studying and learning from my amazing teachers at “Balance for Life” I was taught an old Chinese way of healing; “We heal with what surrounds us”. Although we have a fast paced life a little different from Ancient Chinese ways I couldn’t help noticing the beautiful bottle-brushes blooming profusely here in Melbourne at the moment.

Bottlebrush, from the genus Callistemon, is also a Flower Essence used to heal the physical, mental, intellectual & spiritual aspects. It is used for clearing and cleansing away the old and for us to deal with change easily nd effortlessly.

As it clears away (like a brush) bottlebrush helps us to let go and move through change with greater ease. It helps to brush away the past and allows a person to move on to new beginnings and experiences. Life is full of endings and beginnings, bringing constant change. In fact, we know there is constant climate change that is impacting many Australians as I write this. Bottlebrush helps with major life changes or turning points including starting school, getting a job, marriage, divorce, moving house, retirement and even transitioning to the afterlife (death).

If we resist change, we block the flow of life. Today more than ever we need to be flexible, adaptable and develop resilience.

The negative side of Bottlebrush

Overwhelmed by major life changes including in adolescence, parenthood, pregnancy, menopause, old age and in approaching death. These are all times when bottlebrush is called for.

Positive outcomes

  • Serenity and calmness
  • Coping with ease
  • Ability to move on

Note: Bottlebrush flower essences is not advisable for children under 12 years as we need to allow them to have their life experiences without interference.
