King Protea reigns from one of the most ancient families of flowers on Earth - dating back to 300 million years ago, when plants were just emerging on the terrestrial landscape
The family of Protea is named after the shape-shifting god Proteus, son of Poseidon, as they symbolize diversity, magick, transformation and courage.
King Protea looks like a crown...fully in bloom it reveals a collection of flowers that appear to spiral to a point in the center.
This flower essence is for those who have been on their path and have already done a significant amount of inner work, as she will assist you in going deeper, even if you’ve been feeling stuck, she is here for your total integration into your highest expression of yourself.
This remedy is especially helpful for those who have experienced great levels of trauma in their lives, as she gently gives us the courage to explore our darkest aspects, and bring them to light.
Protea is said to take you back to Source, and holds the energy of everlasting life. She gifts us the ability to see our challenges as the gifts and opportunities that they played for us in our life, allowing us to access a level of peace and acceptance with breath and grace.

King Protea flower essence
All essences have been made in ceremony. I like to greet the spirit of the muse - and offer a prayer & a piece of me - whether that is a song, some of my hair, or tears…
Crystal bowls are laid in full sun, and filled with the highest quality water available to me in any given moment - most often I use spring water that I’ve either harvested myself, or bought from glass bottles. Spring water, especially if it has been freshly harvested, is living water, and it is able to hold the consciousness of whatever is being infused into it at a much more constructive and resonant frequency.
If the plant/flower/mineral/etc is rare or endangered, I use a ‘no-touch’ method, but for most of these essences, I’ve felt comfortable being able to pick the various plants to infuse on the surface of the water for the sunniest part of the day (I also like to make essences on full sun days, with as little cloud coverage as possible...unless it’s a flower that only blooms at night ;)
I use the leaves of the same plant I’m working with to assist in picking the flowers with the least amount of interference.
The flower essence waters are preserved with a grape alcohol (non-alcohol options are available, please contact for info).
