Mysteriously and magically the orchids continue to open and share their delicate nature. Just when it seems that they have given up on me, the gift of their delicate buds and flowers appear.
While orchids are used in Chinese herbal medicine in traditional formulas, they can also be used in the form of vibrational remedies also known as flower essences.
I have used the orchid essences in my tinctures and I always feel as though very special energies are coming from these remedies.
Orchids are symbolic of love, beauty, innocence and long term commitment. A gift of an orchid tells the recipient that you care deeply for this person.
Each year I love to go to the International Orchid Show at the Botanical Gardens in the Bronx, N.Y. where thousands orchids of all colors, shapes and sizes grace the greenhouses. This year the show will open in March. For more information about the event, here is the link to the Gardens.
Sweet winter orchids.
