One Willow Apothecaries


The Intention

Loosen internal tightness & release skepticism to open in softness to the world 

Crocus is a flower essence for first openings and needed release— it is the first crack of light through a tightly drawn curtain. Crocus helps to cast off skepticism, bitterness, and limiting beliefs so that you may open in softness to the world. Recommended for those who feel an internal tightness in their every dealings or the existence of stiff boundaries between themselves and others Crocus helps to ease judgment and isolation so that you can relax into a more comfortable appreciation of yourself and your place in existence. Crocus types are often highly individualistic and intelligent; they value their mind and may see their own uniqueness as something that sets them apart from the world. These individuals often make savvy and accomplished leaders, although they may at times be described as unfeeling. Crocus can aid in fulfilling a leadership role with greater creativity, assuredness and empathy.

Crocus is an elemental beginning step for those who are venturing with skepticism into the world of energetic medicine. It can help a person to open to a deeper trust in the inherent meaning of life and the possibility of intuitive guidance. Crocus encourages a softening towards others, allowing the possibility of deeper relationships and the acceptance that ones vulnerability is just as precious as their strength.

The One Willow Apothecaries Story

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.
