Ground in reality and engage in an awakened awareness of the present moment
This essence is a bridge between reality and the call of the beyond. It is helpful for dreamers, those who roams the hills of their imagination and frequently feel lost in other worlds. Clematis will clarify reality, aiding those who feel dissociated to awaken to an awareness of the present moment. It promotes a healthy interest in your surroundings and a natural curiosity in the experience if living. Clematis allows you to tap into your true gifts and potential, pouring the power of your inner existence into a life of manifested joy.
One of Bach’s original 12 healing flower essences, Clematis is an excellent remedy for all creative types— artists, musicians, philosophers, dreamers. It can bring your creations in balance, helping you to appreciate the physical senses and heightening your experience of reality in a way that is reinvigorating. Clematis is recommended for those who get lost in thoughts of “what might have been” or “what could be”— this guiding essence will deliver you back to the present and bring you into a better understanding of your feelings and the beauty of the here and now.

Founded by herbalist, reiki master, writer, teacher, medicine maker, and seeker, Asia Suler, One Willow Apothecaries is a gathering place for learning, healing, and connection with the living world. Asia has created an online sanctuary to help us establish a deep relationship with the earth - beginning with nurturing the well of our own self-compassion. Through handcrafted earth medicine, in-person retreats, and online learning journeys, she offers portals into understanding our own unique medicine through a joyful engagement with the natural world.
Residing in the Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina, the ancestral lands of the Cherokee, and some of the most ancient coves on earth, Asia honors that the land, and all the spirits in the seen and unseen that nourish its life force, make so much of her work possible.
And she offers this work because at one point in time it saved her spirit. Her own journey began after early years of chronic pain and illness, including a condition called vulvodynia and Lyme disease. The experience - which pushed her into a deep search for healing, both within and without - led her to the altar of the green world and an understanding that truly everything is meaningful. Everyone is good. Everything is medicine. So am I. And so are you.
