New And Improved White Sage Spray

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on New And Improved White Sage Spray

For the past 5 years I’ve had a close relationship with the White Sage plant. Each time I use the White Sage flower essence with clients I am impressed by its ability to clear negativity. In the past few months I’ve deepened my relationship with this plant and started distilling the oil and hydrosol using a copper alembic distiller.

The process of essential oil distillation is  fun and intense. Roughly 45 minutes into the distillation process I could feel a distinct energy shift. At first it felt a bolt of electricity pulsing and expanding through my field. Then I could feel the space become lighter and clearer. Upon completion of the distillation the room filled with a brightness and I felt amazing. It was truly a lovely experience.


White Sage Hydrosol

The White Sage hydrosol has a milky white appearance. Its scent is sweet, herbaceous,  and slightly medicinal. Before adding it to the White Sage Spray I worked with it on its own and was very very pleased. The white sage hydrosol has an uplifting and expansive energy. I found it to be superb at removing dense energy. The hydrosol is the water component of the essential oil steam distillation process

I am beyond happy to be making the White Sage Spray with 3 alchemical components: the White Sage hydrosol, essential oil, and White Sage flower essence concentrate. The hydrosol adds a bouncy roundedness and  sweet pleasant aroma to the White Sage Spray. The White Sage flower essence concentrate helps to ground this spray and the essential oil brings balance to its cleansing properties.

White sage has been an ally to the indigenous peoples of Southern California and Baja California for centuries. The plant is exuberant and thrives in the harsh conditions of drought and the intense sun of the region. I love the way the sun release the plants dry heady aroma in all seasons. Those familiar with smuding would enjoy this spray. This spray is concentrated so a little goes a long way.

Price: $21.95

Each day we are confronted with the fact that clear, honest and heartfelt leadership is hard to find. While dealing with petty tyrants are a way for us to learn to cultivate our leadership; accusations, blame and name calling are not leadership traits that move us collectively to higher levels of service and solutions. For many of us, we are appalled by the current lack of true leadership throughout our society.

About a year ago I started to collaborate with a woman, Kathleen Schafer. She heads an organization called Leadership Connection that works with non-profits, businesses and those in government at the national, state and local levels. Her mission is to guide individuals to tap into their natural leadership skills and to put them into the world to serve the greater good.

As Kathleen became familiar with my work, she asked if we could make a blend to support leaders to access their inner wisdom and guidance. So after tweaking, testing and refining I am happy to share that the Leadership Connection blend and make it  available to the public. It is for anyone who wants to connect their leadership to the change they wish to see in the world.

This blend is designed to support our positive and heartfelt capacity to be agents of change. The Leadership Connection blend is useful for anyone and teachers, educators, business owners, and athletes would enjoy this formula.

Mount Shasta Flower Essences

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Mount Shasta Flower Essences

The marvel of Mt. Shasta can be seen and even felt from miles away. It is like a silent sentinel standing tall and radiating peace. In 2011 I participated in a vision quest at Mt Shasta and had a deeply powerful experience. Upon arriving I was struck by the many and varied flowers in bloom. I had the idea of co-creating flower essences, but shelved the idea for another time as I was there for other purposes. I should have known better . . .

Once the vision quest was complete, I left the mountain for a few days and felt myself being called back loudly. I returned, pitched a tent and was swiftly called to numerous flowers. I thought maybe I would make 1 or 2 essences. But . . . I wound up with a collection of 16 remedies. These Mt. Shasta flower essences quickly became powerful medicines in my personal practice.

These are some of my favorite flower essences. They represent a number of plant families including lilies, orchids, and asteraceaes. The Mt. Shasta flower essences carry a simple, clear and potent vibration. From the outset it was clear that these essences would be needed by many. And, now they have found a fine home offices of chiropractors, accunpuncturists, body works and other flower essence therapists.

I cherish these essences and the message of healing they carry. Mt. Shasta holds a special place in my heart. Thankfully I was able to heed the calling and fulfill the mission to co-create the Mt. Shasta Kit.

There are many essences that stand out from this kit that have helped my clients heal. One particular is the flower essence of Monkshood. I have watched time and time again as this remedy helped people unwind early childhood trauma. It is very useful for those who fear what they know. I have watched it restore my clients’ faith and trust in their inner resources time and time again. It has profound effects on deep recesses of the psyche.

Horned Bladderwort Flower Essence

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Horned Bladderwort Flower Essence

images-1Horned bladderwort is a carnivorous plant that grows in bogs, swamps and moist places. The Essence Alchemy Bladderwort flower essence was made in the Pine Barrens in Southern New Jersey. The Pine Barrens is a fascinating eco- system and the largest area of undeveloped land between NYC and Washington DC. It is also home to one of the largest aquifers in the world, holding trillions of gallons of pure water.


Horned Bladderwort Flower Essence – Seeing Through Deception

Horned bladderwort flower essence opens pathways to clear seeing. It helps to clarify perception. Perception deals with how we understand and interpret something. It is an important function of the ‘seeing process’. There are many things that can alter our perception and one of them is trauma, particularly trauma where the person has been lied to and been deceived. This essence helps clients who have been lied to and deceived in the past and end up attracting people who lie to them now. It is good for people who are deceived often and have a hard time perceiving the truth.

The trauma of distortion, deception and lies is pervasive. We seem to live in a world where the distortion of facts has become the norm. This creates a field of illusion and many people feel unable to perceive and trust the motives of others.

Horned bladderwort flower essence strengthens the conscious mind’s ability to pierce through lies and illusion. Horned bladderwort flower essence supports deep clarity, and helps us shed limiting beliefs, false beliefs, and old ways of being. It gives us the support we need to make clear decisions based on inner truth.

Horned Bladderwort flower essence helps us let go of fear and release suppressed emotions. It supports confidence and discernment. This essence will help expose any falsehood in a situation or relationship we are in. This is an appropriate essence for our time, when lies, ‘alternative facts’, and manipulation are rampant. Horned bladderwort will aid in healing trauma and preventing re-traumatization.

The Power of Intuition

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on The Power of Intuition

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” Ram Dass

Over the Christmas/New Year’s holiday I spent 5 days in silent retreat. It is something I like to do each year. I find it helps me get clear, release the past and connect deeper with my inner wisdom. I find silence to be a priceless gift that offers a clear space to be able to hear my own quite voice within.

For the first 24 hours the silence can feel uncomfortable and awkward. Then as the mind settles a natural peace and inner knowing arises. In the silence I began to sense the world from a deeper place within. A strong feeling of interconnection, serendipity, and precognition became a natural part of my days. This ordinary yet seemingly esoteric experience I was having is called intuition.

Transitioning from the sanctuary of retreat to the ‘outside’ world I became aware of the noise. It is loud when humans come together. No judgement just an observation. On top of that we have billboards (visual noise), cell phones, texting, tweeting and so on (psychic noise) to contend with.

In a noisy world, the Intuition formula can enhance your life in a deep and authentic way. Being connected to your inner wisdom is enriching and empowering. I designed the Intuition formula to strengthen your connection with your inner wisdom. This potent blend of 6 flower essences supports inner certainty, clarity and a strong connection to your Higher Self.

Queen Anne’s Lace: prevents distortion of your intuitive and psychic perceptions
