For 5 years I lived on a small organic citrus orchard in Ojai, CA. Every year in late February the citrus trees start to blossom. The scent of their flowers fills the air with a delicious, sweet, heady aroma. I relished the season of the citrus bloom and watched these trees for two years before I felt the call to create Citrus flower essences.
From this orchard I created a set of Citrus Flower Essences. The set contains clementine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, Meyer lemon, orange, tangelo and tangerine. Citrus flower essences carry a distinct lightness that addresses common mental and emotional stress and heaviness. They are especially relevant for people suffering from mental strain and tension caused by overuse of the analytical left brain function of the mind.
Citrus Flower Essences and a Peaceful Mind
In an average day we consume more information than we can process. More demands are put upon our attention than ever before. And as a result many people feel mentally drained and stressed. This leads to a number of persistent conditions such as a racing mind, inability to focus, and a feeling of disconnection. And, the deluge of negative news we are surrounded by leaves many people with a feelings of vague anxiety and persistent negative outlook.
This can be troubling and lead to feelings of bitterness and distrust. Many people suffer under this because they have lost a sense of natural ease. Our natural receptivity to that which is beneficial has been eroded. As a result we sour to life much like the juice of the citrus fruits. But the sweetness of the citrus flower essences are here to help us access flexibility, ease and joy.
