Living Tree Orchid Essences

The essences have been carefully co-created in their initial years (starting in 1998) at the earlier base The Living Tree in the Milland valley in West Sussex. Their home is now on the Isle of Gigha in Scotland, which is also where the bottling and distribution is carried out. Made with orchids grown in greenhouses, and using a non-cutting method for the essence making, these essences depart from some aspects of traditional essence making. Once one encounters the profound beauty and depth of being found in these orchids, a non-cutting approach feels compelling. And the fact that the orchids are in an artificial environment may seem at first impression rather odd; but one may also see that these plants are volunteering to work directly with us, and have entered into interaction with us very consciously. Made primarily by Don Dennis and Heather Decam, with Natalie Shaw and Dominic Jones also participating, nearly all of the essences were made by a male & female team. Peter Tadd and Heather DeCam provided the major share of the information on each essence, along with feedback over the years from friends and customers around the world. One distinguishing feature of orchid essences in general is their ability to act upon the chakras which exist above our body. This combines with their action in the body to create very powerful shifts in our energy fields, often with very immediate effect. They also have an overall strong focus on helping us directly in relation to our spiritual path.
