“I feel that the male principle has been so crippled and wounded from conditioning, that it’s extremely difficult to have a healthy male principle in either a woman or a man. The male principle is the creator, that which quests for the higher, that which moves creatively toward something of inspiration…
But males don’t do that anymore! They build buildings, but they do it for money, which is a degradation of the principle. That which moves from the mundane to the transcendent is the male principle and it’s very, very shaky in most people”
Our handcrafted Tree flower essences capture the energy of different trees found in the forests and parklands of Canada and elsewhere. They fall within the category of vibrational essences of which the most famous are the Bach Flower Remedies. Homeopathic remedies are also vibrational in nature.
What happens when we ingest a Tree Flower Essence?”
A good analogy is listening to music. By taking an essence, we hear the music of a tree and imbibe its qualities. We can also think of the process of taking an essence as a transfer of a tree’s resonance to us. Each tree has its own unique resonance and this resonance has been found to be highly beneficial. As when you are with a tree, feeling connected, nourished in its presence, so when you ingest an essence you are taking in the same energy.
Black Spruce is a powerful presence and its essence has a deep healing significance, especially for the male or active side.

Black Spruce is found across Canada and the Northern US from the Maritime then west to the interior of British Columbia and up through Alaska.Its trunk grows straight and in the forest it may be without branches for much of its length, so I was fortunate to come upon a cluster of young Black Spruce with an abundant supply of fine small cones on top of a hill a short walk from Lake Superior. This freshwater lake, the size of an Inland Sea, has noticeable tides and powerful waves, but on this spring day the vast waters were still frozen and silent. This point on the lake is known as the Agawa Rock as their are pictograms painted by the Ojibwa people to celebrate a major event in their history, the crossing of Lake Superior by a group of men in canoes. It is known that Black Spruce roots were used for sewing birch bark canoes. Its resin was used as chewing gum and a poultice for sores, and the inner bark to treat a variety of other ailments. One of the most striking drawings at Agawa depicts a horned lynx demigod of Lake Superior.
