Rock Rose flower essence addresses the soul’s need for courage, especially when in very extreme circumstances. This remedy is indicated for moments when the soul has stepped almost completely outside the body and is in a survival mode of consciousness.
The Self is forced to address a severe emergency, usually of life-threatening proportions such as violent attack or a traumatic accident. This remedy can also be indicated for the process of dying, when the ego is gripped by the fear that it will be utterly annihilated or destroyed.
Rock Rose flower essence restores sun-like forces of courage to the human soul so it can meet these tremendous challenges with self-transcending strength. Although Rock Rose flower essence can be used alone, it is most commonly used in the composite “Five Flower Formula” (with Star of Bethlehem, Impatiens, Cherry Plum, and Clematis) for maximum benefit.
