Feeling like you need some space from others' energy or that you need some protection or nurturing? When I feel like this I call on Hemlock tree flower essence. If you have ever walked beneath these graceful trees you know the peaceful atmosphere they create. It feels like an outdoor temple or sanctuary to me. Enfolded in the sweeping branches, supported by their strong trunks, quieted by the duff they have at their feet, nibbling on their lemony needles makes me settle into the peace within myself. I call it "instant sanctuary".
