Giveaway Monday – California Poppy Flower Essence by Darcey Blue

darcey giveaway 1

This week’s giveaway is for a bottle of California Poppy Flower Essence  from Darcey Blue of Shamana Flora. Made from the first wild spring poppies in the Sonoran desert foothills, California Poppy (Eschscholzia spp.) Flower Essence is recommended for those:

~Finding spiritual fulfillment within one’s own heart, developing inner center of knowing/truth/wisdom.
~Seeking outside oneself excessively for spiritual light or salvation.
~With tendencies to addiction or escapism. *All the glitters is not gold.*
~Seeking spiritual glamour or enticing psychic experiences outside themselves.
~Often drawn to excessive use of psychadelics, cults, charismatic guru/leaders without question or checking in with ones own center of wisdom and truth.

This essence allows us to see the spiritual light and wisdom within ourselves and in our own path. Encourages self responsability and inner development and golden heart/spirit light.

A bit about Darcey Blue:

darcey giveaway 3

I want to leave the bounds of the indoors and take you out to smell wild minerals of the wet dirt, to fill your mouth with the spice of tree resin, to drum your heart into a rhythm that allows YOU to hear, feel, see, sense, experience the magic and sacredness of the natural world. I want to show you how to see with more than your eyes, see with your body, your heart, your sensual nature. I want to feed the senses and bodies of my clients with the holiness of the plant medicine- not just the extracts and constituents that help them feel better, but with the place where the earth wisdom, plant manifestation touches the spark of life within each heart and body.” – From Truth Telling, by Darcey Blue

Darcey is a shamanic herbalist and wild crafter of plant medicines,  a Lover to the Earth and wild earth mama. She is a devotee of all that is sacred on this wild beautiful earth.

Darcey is here to dive deeply into the wild world, into the heart, and to show the way for others to follow – to experience, to sense, to taste, to feel the magic of the plants, to know deeply in their heart the sacred calling of the wild earth. The wisdom of spirit within each of us.

Darcey works privately with those who are eager to learn from the plants a healing way as old as time itself, and who are ready to take responsibility for and transform their relationship to self, spirit, nature, health, and body. She works with clients and students at the The Harmony Hut in Tucson, AZ, and teaches regularly the Medicine of the People: Folk Herbal Resurgence in Coconino, Arizona.

Darcey was trained as a Clinical Herbalist & Nutritionist at the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism under Paul Bergner, and studied under Rosemary Gladstar and Charlie Kane. She was called to the shamanic path by an old Juniper tree in 2003 and has been talking with plants ever since.

    Really enjoyed the information on Darcey’s website. I think the 6 month flower essence teaching looks the most interesting.

    I planted some california poppy seeds this spring, then found out I was supposed to stratify them first. Hoping they come up next spring, thanks for the chance to try the tincture in the meantime (: Also thanks for the link to Darcy’s site, good stuff! I’m very intrigued by the flower essence course.
