Death ends life on earth. To deny or ignore it shows a lacking dimension in our lives.
In ancient cultures it was common practice to integrate and prepare for death from the first days of our lives. The Egyptians built giant pyramids as places of death. In our western culture, death has no place. When family members are dying it is hard enough even when they are already old and their time is up. But sometimes even young children die and leave huge gaps in our lives.
Copper Beech is an essence for those who do not want to deny the death, but deliberately integrate into their lives. It is an essence for people who have forgotten how to grieve for others, and blocked the access to their innermost feelings. It is suitable for the dying and for their companions, it lightens one's heart on the last journey.
