The Extraordinary Times Collection to the Rescue . . .

Back in March of this year 2020, I assembled a kit of 15 flower essences called I coined The Extraordinary Times Collection. I wanted to give people an easy to access collection of flower essences to address the variety reactions to these current times. It is close to 6 months later and these essences are just as applicable now as they were then. Some essences from the collection:

Use this blend when you feel “keyed up” and are unable to relax. The Calm blend should be used when you feel nervous, strained, edgy or under pressure it will help you unwind. It is excellent for helping to pacify the mind, emotions and nervous system.
