In the following interview, a energy worker and herbal and flower essence specialist explains the significance of the scarlet monkey flower essence:
Interviewer: “Which herbs or flower essences help with emotions?”
Informant: “Scarlet monkey flower essence is one of my favorite flower essences because it addresses the fear of repressed strong emotions, especially those of anger and powerlessness. It helps one communicate clearly and directly with emotional honesty.”
Interviewer: “Who would you recommend scarlet monkey flower to?”
Informant: “Well your mom currently takes scarlet monkey flower. She has expressed and I have observed that she struggles with accepting her emotions so she has been using this flower essence for a few months now”
Analysis: My mother claims this flower essence works and has improved her quality of life significantly as she is happier and more in tune with herself and her spirit. I agree as she has been much better at communicating with me when she is feeling angry or upset instead of just letting her emotions brew until one day she explodes. This flower essence has been passed down for generations from the informants teacher to her and now to my mother who excitedly tells anyone willing to listen about the miracle essence. Although the flower essence is ancient, the informant is finding new uses for it in the ever adapting world.
