Woodland Essences

Woodland Essences are made in the pristine Adirondack Mountain range in upstate New York. Kate Gilday the co-creator of these essences has a high degree of integrity ensuring that each essence undergoes years of research before they are offered to the public.

Woodland Essence flower essences carry a sweet potent vibration of the pure woodlands. I highly recommended these essences and encourage you to work with them. They make a great compliment to both the Bach and FES essences.

We feature 4 sets of essences from the Woodland Essence collection they are Tree Essences, Shrub Essences, Forest Floor Essences and At-Risk-Plants.
