In the words of Amber Pixie of Pixie's Pocket
"Grief is a powerful thing.
It is terrible, but necessary. Grief is a mix of many large emotions, and it is a state that we each experience in different ways. It is inescapable – we will each of us grieve at some point in our lives.
Grief is the river of tears that carries us through loss, through change, through the deep and difficult moments. It is easy to drown in such a powerful river if we can’t keep our heads above the water, and so grief is feared by most. Trying to hide from it, squash it down, pretend it doesn’t exist, and run from it can cause physical repercussions. Facing the grief and going through it consciously is encouraged. It can help to dive into the river and go with the flow and see where it carries us."
Hawthorn berry (Crataegus laevigata): Hawthorn is an all-around heart tonic, serving to strengthen and tone the cardiovascular system, lower cholesterol levels, and manage blood pressure. On an emotional level, the idea of a stronger, more resilient heart may allow us to spring back from heartbreak and venture forward on a new path without so much fear and heartsickness. However, hawthorn is also a nervine. It can be used in treating anxiety and in combination with the plants in this formula used for intense sadness, treating broken heart and grief.
Mimosa bark (Albizia julibrissin)- Better known as the beautiful mimosa tree (Albizia julibrissin), both the bark and the flowers are used to help one cope with feelings of profound loss and grief. Mostly we think of these emotions associated with the death of a loved one, but albizia has a much wider application such as emotional trauma and stress associated with financial loss, bankruptcy, unemployment, divorce, children moving out to college or on their own, break up of a relationship. All of these are common occurrences that swirl around us and effect all of us in profound ways. Taken properly, albizia extract works very fast to help dispel the anguish brought about by loss and grief, usually within a day.
Rose petals (Rosa centifolia) are also a traditional treatment for mood and anxiety. The scent of rose gladdens and lifts the heart, and its internal effects are similar. Rose soothes the nerves and breaks up stagnant energy, helping to start the natural grieving process in a healthy, balanced way. Rose petals possess nervine and antidepressant qualities.
Motherwort herb (Leonurus cardiaca) "Sweet mother, loving intentions, good for nerves, calming palpitations, mild sedative, balance severe emotional swings due to stress, shock, and sorrow, directly invigorates uterine tissue, good for trauma recovery, good for pregnancy and postpartum depression. "Ah... she holds you close to her bosom while you cry. She nurtures you with vitamin A, serves as a uterine tonic, regulates menstruation, and eases gas and cramping pains." - Amber Pixie
Devil's Club root bark (Oplopanax horridus) Devils’ Club often works at the level of helping us work through our deepest wounds and fears to help us find our true authentic self and nature, to become strong and clear in who we are and to stand tall in that confidence. Sometimes that means that Devil’s Club pushes us to overcomes some poor habits, some ways in which we hide.
