ALCHEMILLA ESSENCE by Moon by Moon Apothecary
∞ alchemilla leaves (Alchemilla mollis)
made at dawn from dew-covered leaves in the gardens at birthwise midwifery school in bridgton/me. also known as lady’s mantle, this plant is one of my favorites. the botanical name alchemilla, means “little alchemist” because it was said that the old alchemists would gather the morning dew this plant so generously collects for their experiments. in fact, it was said the dew from alchemilla was one of the primary ingredients in their formulas. thus, this essence helps us turn our base metals to gold—to inspire change & movement from a dull state to a higher one. alchemilla is also nice for those who take on too much emotional labor, despite feeling overwhelmed, but also as a way to avoid caring more deeply for themselves & their own emotional space. it helps us to transmute this dynamic into one that allows balance & good boundaries around what we take on, especially if we feel it difficult to say “no” to other people’s emotions. this essence returns us to a sense of self & reminds us of purpose. it wakes us up, gets us dressed, sends us on our way (especially when we feel little motivation). it inspires us to leave our comfort zones & enter into the world. reminds us to not squander our gifts
